Lack of Paint or poor quality paint is the main cause of dry rot. Due to the very moist air in the Sacramento Valley and Bay Area it penetrates the wood siding - Facia Boards and Rafters causing Rot. Once the rot begins it never stops spreading until professionally removed and replaced with new wood.
