Dry Rot Treatment Inside Your Home
Dry rot can enter the interior of your home in several ways. The most common entry points for dry rot into your home are under siding, leaking windows and doors, or defective roofing. How does dry rot begin in these areas? It could be the result of improper material installment or simply the slow degradation of time. Your windows may be improperly flashed or your siding may have been damaged by the elements, and all roofs will eventually leak. In some cases the dry rot occurs in areas that are not even in contact with the exterior of your home. Leaky pipes, faulty caulking around plumbing fixtures, and damp crawl spaces can lead to dry rot damage. The trickiest thing about dry rot treatment is that all of this can be happening without your knowledge. SFW Construction is the Northwest leader in dry rot repairs.
