The Risks of Rotten Wood
Not addressing dry rotted wood can lead to a range of risks and negative consequences for both the structure itself and the overall well-being of a property.
Here are three significant risks associated with neglecting rotten wood:
Dry rotted wood is weakened and compromised due to fungal decay. As the wood fibers break down, the affected areas lose their strength and ability to support weight, compromising the stability of the structure. This can lead to sagging floors, leaning walls, and even the collapse of structural elements. Furthermore, if left unchecked, the structural damage may spread to other areas of the property, increasing the risk of more extensive and costly repairs.
Dry rotted wood provides an ideal environment for various wood-destroying insects, such as termites, carpenter ants, and wood-boring beetles. These pests are attracted to the weakened and decaying wood, and they can quickly infest the entire structure. Wood-destroying insects can further exacerbate the structural damage by tunneling through the already weakened wood, creating additional points of weakness, and compromising the integrity of the structure
Dry rotted wood is typically affected by fungal growth. Fungus consumes cellulose, one of the primary components of wood, leading to further decay and weakening of the material. In addition to structural damage, the presence of fungus can also contribute to poor indoor air quality and potential health risks. Some types of fungi release spores that can irritate the respiratory system, leading to allergies, asthma, or other respiratory issues.
