What is dry rot and how can it cause damage to your beautiful Greenville area home? At Crawlspace Medic®, our specialists have crawled through countless miles of crawl spaces to inspect the wooden substructures of homes. While most homes are built to last, the effects of time, moisture, weather, and other factors eventually take their toll. This rot is just one of these unfortunate effects, but it can cause serious damage to your home. The good news is: like many home-related repairs, treat it fast enough and you can prevent more costly damage from occurring.
A few warning signs that your home in Greenville has dry rot include: brittle or cracked wood, rust-colored spores or dust, or gray or white strands. However, the best way to tell if you have it is to consult an expert in Greenville like Crawlspace Medic®.
For homeowners in Spartanburg, Maudlin, Anderson, Simpsonville, or Greenville, Crawlspace Medic® can inspect your property for dry rot. It’s not always visible, so our team can perform thorough inspections to see if you have any within the substructure of your home. If it has gotten into the wood of your home, we can probe to determine the level of damage and arm you with the next steps. Often, wood will need to be removed and replaced. However, if further steps are necessary, we’ll let you know what further measures should be taken. Depending on the level of repairs, our specialists can typically help to treat the damage. Getting your home back to full health is what we’re here for.
