“I have a dry rot problem, but it’s only cosmetic!”
I have heard of dry rot damage considered a “cosmetic problem” on several occasions. As a property owner, we sometimes have to trust that an expert may be better qualified to make that determination. An expert can have much more experience in seeing the extent and progression that dry rot can take over time.
Granted, some areas of dry rot can be less severe than others. The extent of the damage can only be evaluated until the damaged area is exposed. I recently was told that the trim board at an apartment community had minor, cosmetic dry rot damage. After pulling off the trim board, which was much worse than expected, the structural support beam also was damaged. The damage to the beam was bad enough that it warranted replacement; not a “cosmetic repair”.
Need advice on the extent of dry rot damage to your property in the Sacramento area?
