For high quality dry rot repair in Elk Grove, all you have to do is look next door. LNL Construction serves Elk Grove and the surrounding areas of Sacramento, Roseville, and Folsom. A construction and remodeling contractor may not cross your mind when you’re looking for specialty dry rot repair contractors, but we see dry rot all the time in our line of work and are well-versed in repairing any affected areas of a home or business.
Dry rot is caused by fungus that eats away the parts of the wood that keep it strong, which results in decay. The spores can look like orange dust, and once they take hold and get enough moisture, they start eating away at the wood. Even though it’s called “dry” rot, it needs to have a good amount of dampness to survive. It’s repairable, but if you let it go too long, it can destroy the integrity of the wood and require replacement. Our dry rot repair service for Elk Grove and the surrounding areas involves using epoxy to fill in the damaged wood and destroy the rot, though we may use other methods, as well. We’re happy to discuss options with our customers. Advanced rot may require removing rotten wood and replacing it with new wood, as well as fully treating the area to ensure the rot is removed completely. Once we’ve determined where the rot is and treated it, we can help property owners determine where the moisture that allowed it to take hold in the first place is coming from and recommend solutions so that the dry rot doesn’t come back. While we can’t guarantee the removal of every single spore, our dry rot repair contractors can get rid of the damage and active fungus, as well as help you avoid new growth.
