What is fungal timber decay?
Fungal timber decay occurs as a result of damp timbers creating the perfect environment for rot spores to germinate and grow. As the rot grows it produces mycelium inside the timber, which breaks down the wood and turns it into food.
The level of damage eventually caused by both wet rot and dry rot will vary depending on the type of rot, how long it has been growing for and the conditions it is growing in. If specialist rot treatment is not carried out then rot will to continue to grow, spread further and cause more severe timber decay.
