Dry Rot

by Geoff Flavell in Uncategorized

Its important to identify whether timber decay has been caused by dry rot or another wood destroying fungus such as one of the wet rots. This is because dry rot has the ability to travel through building materials other than timber, giving outbreaks the potential to spread quickly through the building. For this reason additional measures (e.g masonry sterilisation) often have to be taken when treating dry rot outbreaks over and above those necessary when dealing with outbreaks of other wood rotting fungi.
