Understanding dry rot and wet rot
Wet Rot: There are many different types of wet rot fungus, however, the treatment does not vary as wet rot cannot spread from the original source of moisture. Affected timbers to be cut out and renewed using similar dimensioned pre-treated timbers with any remaining sections or original joists receiving a brush coat of fungicidal paste at the cut end.
Dry Rot: a dry rot outbreak is more severe than that of a wet rot outbreak as it can spread from the original source of moisture through and across masonry to attack dry timber. Eradication treatments will require masonry sterilisation as well as timber replacements.
