Wood rot is a form of decay triggered by the combination of moisture and fungi.
Have you noticed the wood under the old paint is soft? It can be found in beams, deck framing, eaves, window and door framing, siding, as well as other spots in your home or business. Left untreated, wood rot can spread, destroy sound wood, and cause considerable damage to your home or business. A simple paint job is not enough, because wood rot can lead to several problems, including deteriorated support posts and beams, rotted floor and ceiling joists, and destroyed roof decking. It is important to take care of wood rot before they lead to bigger problems.
