Dry Rot Inspection & Repair
Serving North Bay and East Bay Areas
Western Exterminator, formerly Hitmen can provide relief from fungus damage to your home. Our technicians will make an initial inspection of the exterior, interior, and sub-area surfaces, including basements and crawlspaces. We can then make necessary repairs to siding, decks, and any other structures that are damaged. Occasionally, fungus damage could also be a sign of termites, which is why inspections by a professional are always recommended.
What is Dry Rot?
Decay Fungi (Dry Rot) can cause severe structural damage to any wood member, even species such as redwood or cedar. Given the ideal conditions, the fungus will feed on wood and anything made from wood or natural cellulose fibers. All that is needed is a source of water and having the wood reach a 20% moisture saturation level. Early infestations where the wood is still sound will typically require treatment with an approved preservative and control of the moisture condition. Advanced infestations normally require the replacement of the damaged members.
