Dry rot is the most serious type of timber decay. It is a fungus that destroys the cellulose component of wood turning it brown, and eventually reducing timber to a dry and crumbly consistency.
How To Identify Dry Rot
Dry rot has a distinct mushroom smell and white fungal growth often with yellow and lilac tinges.
The reddy brown fruiting body produces spores, which are deposited as a layer of brick red dust throughout the building.
Unlike wet rot there is extensive fungal growth and distinct cuboidal cracking of the timber.
