Wood Rot Repair
Many elements of your home are constructed with wood, so it's natural to assume that at some point or another, you're going to need wood rot repair. Wood is a material which has the capability to decay or rot unless kept dry and in the appropriate conditions. You need to routinely check your home for wood rot as well as mold contamination. Mold growth may be hazardous for your health, and can trigger serious damage to your furnishings and structural elements of your house.
Checking for Wood Rot
When checking for wood rot, we will need to carefully check any locations that might be afflicted with moisture or that may have bad air flow. We will look for places where the walls or ceilings are stained, there exists any warped flooring, and spots where condensation has built up on your home windows. We will check areas by using a screwdriver, to punch into the wood to see if it's still solid. Also, we will check to see if there's any wetness in the area. Some inside areas to check are bathrooms and kitchens, basements, crawl spaces, and also attics. Some exterior places it's also wise to check are windows, door frames, anywhere that touches the ground, exterior siding, roofing, decks, foundations, vents and rain gutters. If we discover any rotted wood, we will figure out where the moisture is originating from. Then, we will fix the cause of the problem in order to prevent future or repeat wood rot issues.
