Threats to Floor Joists

Threats to Floor Joists

Flooring joists are vulnerable to a variety of problems. If you notice mold or other symptoms of moisture, you should be concerned. For example, "soft rot" causes the wood to discolor and become moist. It's caused by a fungus that breaks down moist wood into cellulose, affecting its structural integrity. If termites or other wood-eating insects have infested the joists, this is also a serious issue.

It's important to remember that, in addition to restoring joists, you'll need to address the issues that led to this situation. This can include extremely high humidity, standing water, or insect infestation. If the rot is found beneath a bathroom, you should first look for any ongoing water leaks that could be causing the problem before attempting fixes.
