What is timber rot?
Timber rot is divided into two categories dry rot and wet rot, with the former presenting more of a significant problem for your home for the latter. Both forms of rot normally occur where timber has in excess of 20% moisture content.
Dry rot (Serpula lacrymans) is a wood-destroying fungus that can penetrate structural timbers, sash windows and other timber and wooden elements in your home, potentially wreaking havoc throughout your property.
Thriving in moist, unventilated conditions, if not treated dry rot can cause timber to weaken and in the worst case scenario make it unsafe.
Wet rot is also caused by wood rotting funguses, though less pervasive ones than dry rot. These two key funguses are Coniophora puteana (also known as cellar fungus) and Poria vaillantii (also known as white pore fungus).
While wet rot is general confined to areas of dampness, if not treated some structural damage can occur.
