Dry Rot Damage Services in Michigan

crawl space services in michigan

Dry rot, oddly enough, has nothing to do with dryness at all. What causes dry rot damage is actually too much moisture in contact with wood. Dry rot is what happens when fungus steadily breaks down wood fibers, which in turn turns the wood brittle and weak. A sure sign of dry rot damage is when the weakened wood is touched, it feels extremely dry - exactly like it's name.

Dry Rot Damage Prevention

The key to reducing and preventing dry rot damage is to limit the amount of moisture presence -- but it isn't as easy as getting a leaky pipe sealed. One of the most common reasons for dry rot and termite damage even happening is when wood comes into contact with the soil, as is the case with failed foundations.

When moisture is out of control, and the dry rot fungus has a steady hold over your home, one of the best solutions to consider is to have the wood treated either during repairs or during construction. If needed, you can even have it done as a remedial treatment in order to hinder the growth of the fungus.

Dry rot damage treatment is administered in liquid form, and is made of either borate or boric acid. Borate prevents insect damage, but you need to remember that it is also water soluble, so you must keep it away from liquid water. When a log home is in the process of being built, fused borate is used to protect the log ends. This is also what's used on wood utility poles, so that they can fight against dry rot.
