Causes of Dry Rot

Fungal decay of timber by dry rot can occur when the timber is in prolonged contact with damp situations, especially in poorly ventilated areas such as sub floors. The fungal growth from dry rot may be in the form of white strands, sheet mycelium and fruiting bodies. The white strands are able to penetrate through brickwork and mortar joints and can transport moisture to dry, poorly ventilated areas, allowing the spread of the fungus.
