Wood Rot Can Almost Always Be Repaired

Every home, just like every person, is different. And when we become seriously ill, the range of treatment options can be expensive and immense, with no guarantee of success. But the good news with your home is that unlike people, it can almost always be repaired when seriously ill. Most homes in America are built with wood because it is cheap, plentiful and easy to work with when compared with other construction methods. In wetter parts of the country like Cincinnati, however, wood rot develops when construction defects, neglected maintenance or animal damage rear its ugly head. Wood rot can develop unnoticed until it causes extensive structural damage. Before contacting a home repair company to address the wood rot, I recommend that every homeowner attempt to answer the following three questions. This information will assist your home repair professional in diagnosing and properly treating the cause of your wood rot.

Minimize the Cost of a Wood Rot Repair

To minimize the expense and hassle of a wood rot repair, act quickly on any sign of wood decay, damage or water intrusion. Wood rot is not one of those home repairs that one should procrastinate on, as the cost for the resulting damage will tend to rise exponentially with time. In addition, make sure your wood rot professional obeys the Three Golden Rules for Better Home Improvement.

Three Important Questions Before Beginning a Wood Rot Repair

  • Is there any animal or insect intrusion? Animal damage, carpenter ants or termites responsible for damaging the wood must be eliminated before any wood rot repair begins. Contact a wildlife removal specialist or exterminator before hiring a home repair company to perform the wood rot repair.
  • Can you feel or see any dampness? Water intrusion is often the primary cause of the wood rot. Any information you can provide to your wood rot repair professional as to the potential source of water is invaluable in properly diagnosing the cause of the wood rot.
  • Is the wood rot cosmetic or structural? Cosmetic rot in trim, soffits, or siding is certainly unsightly, but does not necessarily pose any immediate concern to the safety of the home. Whereas wood rot in any structural framing like bandbaords, sill plates, deck structures, etc. can cause additional damage to the home and potentially jeopardize the safety of those living within.
