An oak deck? I don't think I've ever seen a deck built outside with oak decking Richie.

Thanks for the comment.

I get calls for dry rot and I ask if they have had a termite report done. The response is often, "I don't have termites."

I think a lot of people don't realize the dry rot on a termite report happens all the time.

I liked the bathtub tale Myrl. I was crawling under a tub once and was amazed that it was still in the bathroom. I didn't spend too much time under that tub!  :)

Charles, I have found it easiest just to have the one name for the rot - dry rot. It can get too confusing tryng to explain the differences. Most people are limited to what they have seen in a termite report.

I like to background on the original of the term "dry rot".

But that would only be entertaining to a handful of people like you and me.   :)

I like that part too Anna.

The important thing is that the work get done correctly by someone with experience in doing the dry rot work.

My guess, Jay, is that you have probably seen this done on one of your home inspections.

I'd be more than happy to help Susan.

I was invited to a dinner party of a large landscape contractor. He told me that I "owe" him. I'd never met this guy, but apparently he had installed the sprinklers on all the apartment communities that were suffering water damages that I was repairing.

It sounds like the door is okay Joan. Based on what you have stated, I would probably replace the entire length of the damaged wood. If it's the door frame, that piece, from floor to the top of the door jam should be replaced. There are shortcuts, but I wouldn't do it.

Hope this helps!

Dry rot needs to be fixed! The sooner the better Jerry, as you know.

I'd be lying if I said that I didn't notice the ranking.  :)

Thanks for the feedback!

Are you kidding!?  I see it done all the time!  And then, one fine day, someone goes out on the deck, rotten as can be, and falls through the decking!  Gee, I didn't see it was so bad...

Now redwood decking is the lumber I have seen Richie, that's for the clarification.
