Dry Rot Is the #1 Defect Found in Sacramento-area Homes
During all our termite, pest and insect, and home inspections, dry rot is the defect we see the most. Dry rot is a combination of continuous moisture (often due to a leak) and a living fungus that targets cellulose in the wood’s structure. It thrives in temperatures between 65- and 95-degrees Fahrenheit. The wood appears dry and breaks into small bits.
Once it starts growing, dry rot spreads quickly. Our professional team offers free dry rot repair competitive bids. Once our bid is accepted, we’ll replace the rotting wood, take any other remediation procedures needed, and share preventive tips to help avoid dry rot infestation again.
- Dry rot can be hard to detect because it’s often hidden behind wallboard, siding, and under flooring.
- It is much easier to prevent than it is to treat, so early detection is important.
- Homeowners should do an annual inspection themselves with a screwdriver and flashlight. Gently poke the screwdriver into wood where dry rot is often found such as windows, exterior doors, outdoor decks, basements, wet rooms (any rooms with plumbing fixtures), and damaged roofs. The wood should be hard, not soft. If any signs are found, call a home dry rot repair expert like NAHS immediately.
