Identifying wet rot is not an exact science. For a start, there many different forms of wet rot that can affect timber in different ways. Also, without proper training, it can be difficult to identify the difference between wet rot and the more serious dry rot. That said, the guide below should be able to help with the initial identification of wet rot.
We have compiled a series of pictures of wet rot to help you identify it in addition to the guide below.
When no obvious fungus is present, wet rot can generally be identified and differentiated from dry rot by the differing colour of the decayed timber as well as the size and type of cracking by the timber as the wet rot progresses.
If you have any of the described conditions above, specialist treatment will be required to inhibit this.
