Crawlspace and Basement Wood Rot Repair
Wood rot is a serious problem that can happen in your basement or crawlspace as a result of condensation from summer humidity or rainwater leaks. This can develop into significant damage to your home over several months or years. Wood rot can threaten the structural integrity of your home by weakening the sub-floor, siding, floor joists, door thresholds as well the trim on both the interior and exterior of your home. The wood that is soft from water damage and rotting can attract termites which can require both a termite control treatment along with repairs for termite damage.
Wood rot can spread from the original source of a leak to other areas in your home. You need to repair wood rot as soon as you find it. If you find a leak into your home or a leaky pipe, you will need to make sure the area dries out completely and check on it periodically to make sure that it is not spreading through your home. Here are some of the signs of wood rot.
