Dry rot is an extremely serious timber condition, and if you identify dry rot in your property it is important to treat the issue as soon as possible in order to minimise the time and cost of treatment.

HOW TO Identify Dry Rot - The first step to treatment
The first step towards treating dry rot is to identify and remove the source of moisture that is helping the dry rot to grow. Although dry rot is quite distinctive, it is normally not noticed until significant damage has been caused to timber. This is because some homeowners generally do not check the places where dry rot tends to grow such as behind plaster, under floorboards and in lofts. It is crucial to spot the dry rot signs and find the source of moisture before any dry rot treatment can occur. After this is done, the application of fungicidal treatments may be enough to stop a minor outbreak. Sadly, it is far more common for dry rot to spread before it is noticed, meaning it is usually necessary to remove plaster, apply fungicide and replace any timbers damaged by the dry rot.
