6 Common Indicators of Wood Rot

Some home problems that require repairs appear highly visible, constantly reminding you that they need attention. However, wood rot is often hidden, able to grow and feed. When undetected, wood rot can begin to affect your health as well as your home. In very serious cases, however uncommon, wood rot can become so widespread that it affects the structural integrity of the building.

Because of the risks associated with unaddressed wood rot, it’s important that you as a home owner know how to recognise wood rot in all its stages. If you live in an area with average to high humidity, we advise you to inspect your home and property thoroughly for any signs of wood rot at least once a year.

When humidity levels in your home rise, you’ll quickly feel its effects. Your hair turns frizzy. Your skin feels clammy. And every breath feels comparable to a day at the sauna.

But humidity does more than make you feel uncomfortable. High moisture levels in the air can also damage your home. If left unchecked, humidity contributes to mould growth and wood rot. Over time, your wood trim and furniture will soften, flake and crumble.

While a dehumidifier can solve some of your problems, you can follow a few more steps to ensure your home stays comfortable and dry.

Does Wood Rot Attract Pests? - Date: 14/03/16

Your home requires general maintenance and housekeeping to stay clean and free of problems. Your list of home management goals might already be long, but be sure to add checking for wood rot and timber pests to the list.

When moisture reaches the exterior or interior timber of your home, your home becomes susceptible to a wide range of unpleasant possibilities. Fungus may grow on the wet beams, or they may decay and weaken your home's structure. Plus, because many pests and insects flock to humid and moist environments, these intruders present an additional, if not more serious, concern for homeowners.

As pests find damp wood, they may nest, feed and reduce the beauty and structural integrity of your home’s timber. In this post you’ll find the three most common types of timber pests described, along with effective solutions to prevent and eradicate each of them.

6 Beautiful Woods That Resist Rot - Date: 16/02/16

In the past, many homes relied on softer woods for their siding, eaves and trim. These woods looked beautiful initially, but as they faced rain, snow and shine, they softened over time.

Unfortunately, many fungal species love soft wood and moist environments. So if you live in an older home, you can expect wood rot to show itself on a regular basis. If left unchecked, wood rot can spread until it threatens the structural integrity of your home.

But you don't have to wait until wood rot destroys your home to make repairs. When you call in an expert to restore your home, you can choose rot-resistant woods that will stay strong and look beautiful for many more years to come.

Inspect These 4 Places for Wood Rot - Date: 01/06/16

As a homeowner, you usually know when your property needs attention. You can spot when that tree branch needs trimming or when the weeds need pulling. You can see when that light bulb requires replacement or when the windows could use a good wash.

Once wood rot takes hold, it spreads quickly through your timber beams and wooden trim. If left unchecked, wood rot compromises your home’s structural integrity, costing you thousands of dollars in repairs.

So where should you look to catch wood rot before it damages the rest of your home?
