Dry Rot Removal in Greater Philadelphia

Dry rot shows up when a certain type of fungus slowly breaks down the fibers of your wooden structures. The fungus causes your wooden beams and walls to lose their strength and stiffness – speeding up their decomposition process. If you do not address dry rot immediately, your property’s foundation and basement can incur further damage and suddenly collapse. Contact Jamison Basement Waterproofing today so that we can deal with your dry rot problem professionally.

Expert Dry Rot Removal by Jamison Basement Waterproofing

Removing dry rot without using the proper equipment can cause further damage to your property. Dry rot is often mistaken as termite or carpenter ant damage due to the fact that they look similar. Dry rot comes in two types: white rot and brown rot. White rot has a white or yellow discoloration and gives the wood a spongy texture and stringy appearance. White rot affects hardwood like mahogany, rosewood, and teak. Brown wood or “brown cubical rot” turns the color of the wood into a shade of dark brown and causes the wood to become dry and powdery. Brown wood infects softwood like fir, pine, and spruce. If you’re unfamiliar with the type of rot you’re facing, you risk using the wrong dry rot removal process. This increases your chances of damaging the wooden surface and lessens your chance of removing the dry rot completely.
