What is dry rot? It isn't what most people think: dry wood that is rotten. It actually is the opposite: wet wood that is rotten! Typically dry rot is found behind a surface, like paint or metal. Dry rot is caused by water that gets behind a painted surface and sits on the wood causing long term decay. It is common to see this type of rot in poorly installed windows, especially the window sills. Decks are notorious for having a lot of dry rot too. I typically see a lot of dry rot in the coast areas, like La Jolla, Solana Beach and Del Mar. It is less of an issue inland, like Santee, Poway or El Cajon. But again, it depends on how the home was built and how much moisture can cause dry rot problems.
There are at least two ways to repair wood surfaces that have been damaged by dry rot.
