What is dry rot?
Dry rot or just wood rot is identified in wood members such as trim, siding, fascia, roof eaves, doors, etc. that have been damaged by a fungal infection. Most commonly, wood rot is caused by perpetual water exposure from elements such as leaking gutters, sprinklers, or perhaps seasonal rainfall. The dry rot is identified by probing the exterior wood members of house and is most often evident as soft or crunchy wood.

Good work and excellent service! I am very glad that I turned to you, there is one problem less in my house now.
Quick, high-quality and affordable - what else to expect?
I was freaked out when I realized that my house has termites, but my mother advised to turn to you. Now my home is in complete safety thanks to you. Mom knows better, just like Rot Repair, right?
I did not expect that getting rid of all rot will be so easy. Unfortunately, I did not immediately notice that the windows of my house were damaged, and at first I did not even know what to do. But I started looking for information on how to fix everything and hit the Rot Repair site. These guys quickly reacted and in a few days my windows were in perfect condition.
I was always afraid that my house would be destroyed by termites, so I turned to Rot Repair. They immediately came and checked every corner. Fortunately it turned out that my house was not infected by these pests, but I'm glad to know that you are always ready to help.
One of the best services I've encountered. You probably have never had such a discerning client, but I just wanted my home to be perfect. Thanks for the patience and excellent work!
I did not realize that there was so much damage in my house until I contacted you. How did it just not collapse? But after the Rot Repair took up my house, it lived in a new way, thank you for everything
Rot was a constant problem in my home for many years. But after I asked for help from specialists, I completely forgot about this problem. Thanks to Rot Repair for its excellent service!
I got a house from my grandmother and she definitely was not very carried about it, because the rot was all around the siding. It was a lot of work with which Rot Repair coped perfectly!
The most quality service in my life! I had experience with another repairing company that could not expel termites from my house, but after work on the Rot Repair I never saw these insects anymore.
It's so nice to enjoy your evenings, knowing that your house is in perfect order, thanks to Rot Repair!
All these horrible stories about how termites can eat your home while you sleep seem ridiculous until you really face this problem. Fortunately, Rot Repair has been around for immediate help in coping with this problem. Probably this is the main feature of a good service - always be near.
I am very glad that I turned to you. The fungus always bothered me and whatever I did, it constantly appeared again. I still do not understand how you coped with it, but it completely disappeared and no longer returns!
Incredible work! Thanks for the quality and care
After reading all the reviews, I was expecting the perfect work. And I was surprised when all my expectations came true! I did not think that you could get such an excellent service for such a good price.
Someone should teach these guys to rest! I turned to them several times, and they immediately responded to all my orders and quickly performed them each time.
How amazing to be sure that you always have a friend you can rely on in case of an emergency.
I farewell to the fungus in my house forever right after calling Rot Repair. You are pro in your business!
