Dry Rot Repair Services

Whether it is a construction flaw, substandard exterior finish, or a long-term leak; there are many reasons wood rot becomes more than just an eye sore. The smallest amount of moisture can cause devastating damage to your property. However, our dry rot repair services at KH Construction Management Corp can handle interior or exterior dry rot wood repair with the knowledge and skills unparalleled by other local competitors.


What Is Dry Rot? How Can It Affect Your Property?

Believe it or not, dry rot is a fungus more commonly referred to as “brown rot,” or “wood rot,” that can quickly propel property managers into a nightmare of mold and mildew. Dry rot can grow with no visible moisture and this particular form of fungi pulls moisture from the surrounding air.


It is almost impossible to predict and is also difficult to catch before it spreads, even for dry rot wood repair specialists. When it does spread, it leaves the remainder of the wood crumbly, dark, and half-eaten. This makes the hardwood surface so delicate it can disintegrate into dust in your own hands. Regrettably, once the dry rot fungi begin to spread, nothing can stop it.


Where Can I Find Dry Rot?

Dry rot can prove challenging to spot when it forms — and it can enter your place of business from inside or outside as it attacks any wooden surface. Begin your search for dry rot in places where moisture is likely to be apparent. Sources can include posts, beams, bathrooms, kitchen floors and walls, deck boards, or framing. Dry rot can also be found in gutters, roofs, foundations, sill plates, siding, window, and door frames, and crawl spaces.

Spot The Signs Of Dry Rot:

● Wood shrinks, darkens, or cracks
● Wooden surfaces can easily be pierced with a sharp object like a screwdriver
● Moldy odor: you can smell the musty scent of mold forming. The fungus odor can be a sign that a damp area contains mold or dry rot
● The surface of the wood begins to resemble a mushroom-like skin.
● Floorboards start to creak when you walk across them.

As soon as you see any of these signs, call a wood rot specialist immediately. Solving the problem with our dry rot repair services before it creates a headache is only part of the solution. You can stop the spread, but dry rot could end up substantially costing you both time and money if you ignore the warning signs. Call the KH Construction Management Corp to ensure the job is done right!

Should I Try To Fix Dry Rot On My Own?

We do not suggest tackling this on your own. The reason is simple: you have to find the root of the issue. Ripping out a rotted piece of wood may seem like it’s fixed your problems for good, but don’t be fooled. If you don’t find the source of the problem, it could continue spreading, even after treatment.

Our team can find the origin and prevent it from reappearing in the future with our dry rot repair services. Our professionals will replace all affected wood in your building, making it safe and reliable.
