Dry Rot Ireland

Identifying the type and extent of the problem and determining the correct course of action is the first step. It is important to note that Dry Rot is a damp related problem even thought the name implies otherwise. Dry Rot can spread throughout a building very quickly given the right circumstances. We are based in Navan co Meath but we survey Dry Rot in Cavan, Monaghan, Meath, Dublin and all surrounding counties. There are a few things to look for that will help identify dry rot and one of them is a damp musty smell. Sometimes it is difficult to see as Dry Rot can remain out of sight for a long time. Dry Rot can spread under floors and behind skirting boards and is really only visible once the cracks appear or the mushroom itself appears. If there is any red spotting around, this is a sure sign of active Dry Rot. Dry Rot in Ireland is a continuing problem due to our climate. Not directly but indirectly and more so because we have to try and balance our options between opening our windows and having good ventilation or keeping warm in what are essentially old houses. Many old stone houses in Ireland have Dry Rot problems but Dry Rot can be cured with the right treatment and correct approach that maintains the integrity of the building while getting rid of the Dry Rot problem.
