About 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 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 a treatment with an approved preservative and control of the moisture condition.
Advanced infestations normally require replacement of the damaged members.
