What Is Dry Rot?
Dry rot is a term used to describe a very specific and unique type of wood rot ( Serpula Lacrymans ). It is a wood destroying fungi/fungus which digests the part of the wood that gives it its strength and integrity. Depleting wood of such components leaves it in a brown brittle state, unsafe in any property.
Dry rot is a serious problem across properties in Ireland. What makes dry rot dangerously unique is its ability to progress extensively through a property, destroying the timbers’ natural goodness.
