Dry rot definition: Dry rot is wood that is rotten! Typically dry rot is found behind a surface such as paint or metal. Dry rot is caused when water gets behind a surface and sits on the wood. The result is long-term decay and permanent damage. It is common to see this type of structural damage in poorly installed windows, especially the window sills. Decks are notorious for having dry rot, too. We typically see a lot of dry rot in the coast areas, like La Jolla, Solana Beach and Del Mar. It is less of an issue inland in places like Santee, Poway or El Cajon. The extent of the damage depends on how the home was built and how often the surfaces get wet.
