Fungus & Dry Rot Treatments in San Diego Since 1997

Fungus & Dry Rot are Wood Destroying Organisms

dry rot damage san diego

Fungus and dry rot are wood attacking organisms that consume preformed organic matter. Fungus or dry rot produce spores, which are like tiny seeds that are distributed by wind and water. Moist areas maintaining between 50-85 degrees Fahrenheit will support fungal growth and dry rot. In your home, a shower, bath, toilet, kitchen, drain pipe or other leak left unfixed will case significant wood damage.

Typically, if there is no soil to wood contact, these conditions will be conducive to dry rot and fungus development. A leaking roof or patio cover will also severely damage wood if left uncorrected. Other wood members of the home such as the doors, windows, patio posts, columns, trim boards, etc. are damaged by excessive moisture such as rain, sprinkler systems or other moisture contributors. To minimize dry rot and fungus, it’s helpful to keep your roof in prime condition and keep all exterior wood primed, painted and properly caulked.

What Our Customers Are Saying

5 star review

When I bought my new home License to Kill was the fourth company to inspect this home, and found large amounts of fungus damage the other companies missed. I made the sellers use this company and they did an outstanding job. Thank all of the License to Kill workers and inspector for such great work.

5 star review

I cannot say enough positive things about License to Kill. They inspected and tented a house as part of escrow. When the shady builder instructed them to do a limited inspection and not report specific damage, they went to bat for me, disclosed the shady conduct, and inspected the repair work to make sure it was done properly. They have great attention to detail and were proven right every step of the way.
