Signs of Wood Rot

It’s important to keep an eye out for wood rot in your home or business. If you rarely examine your home’s exterior from every side, prioritize deliberately inspecting for wood rot a few times a year. Pay extra attention to areas with excess moisture and musty smells.

Signs of wood rot you need to look out for include:

  • Discolored, cracked, shrunken, spongey, or splintering wood
  • Fungal growth and spores
  • Holes or cracks in your exterior — even in aluminum or vinyl, as water infiltration can lead to wood rot underneath
  • Exterior damage caused by insects
  • Flaking, blistered, bubbling, or cracked paint may indicate underlying wood rot

If you notice any of the signs listed above, call Keyway Construction at 704-847-7119, or get in touch online now!

Wet Rot vs. Dry Rot

If you find a small area of wood rot that hasn’t spread into structurally significant areas, you may be able to repair it yourself.

First, though, make sure that the wood is infected with wet rot and not dry rot:

  • Wet rot is caused by a fungus that only affects damp wood and won’t spread unless the entire timber has a moisture level of at least 50%.
  • Dry rot can start in as little as 20% moisture and spread to dry areas.

Wood Rot Repair Process

To repair a small area of wet rot, you must:

  • Remove every last bit of the fungus and damaged wood
  • Reinforce the area by injecting an epoxy consolidant
  • Use a wood patching product to fill in the empty areas

Dry rot, however, requires professional help. Dry rot will not only spread and infect nearby wood but also wallpaper, plaster, carpet, and more. It spreads easily, and the spores are difficult to detect. For a lasting repair:

  • Remove the infected wood and the surrounding 3 feet in every direction
  • Remove any adjacent paneling, linings, ceilings, and so forth
  • Thoroughly clean and douse the area with fungicide
  • Install new wood and adjacent materials

Wet rot is still a hassle to remove, and dry rot is too much of a threat to risk handling yourself! Call Keyway Construction & Roofing at 704-847-7119 or contact us online today to request wood rot repair!
