Dry Rot


Dry rot  is caused by a fungi which digests the part of the wood that gives it its strength and causes shrinkage. The problem is not so much in identifying the dry rot but by the behaviour of the fungi. The threads of the fungi can travel along and behind plaster work and render for some distance. Any repairs may include the stripping back of plaster work and render for a given perimeter from the dry rot attack area. Timber may also need replacing if the dry rot has caused excesive damage and other lesser effected areas can be treated with a fungi killer, wood strengthener and wood filler.
