Wet Rot Treatment

Wet Rot Treatment from Plasterhawks

Wet rot stays localised to the source of moisture and the timber is wet in appearance. It will also show signs of shallow cuboidal cracking on the timber surface. Dry rot can grow far from the source of the moisture with evidence of a white/grey coloured growth over the timber.

There are often signs of a white mushroom-like growth, known as a fruiting body, which expels reddish/brown spore dust into the surrounding area. The timber shows signs of larger cuboidal cracks more deep-seated than that of wet rot.

How to identify wet rot

Wet rot causes distortion, discoloration, softness, cracking and the loss of strength to the timber. Sometimes there is a damp musty smell.

In some instances there may be visible fungal growth.
