What causes wood rot?
Residential wood rot is caused by moisture, snow, or sunlight exposure. While rotting wood is often the result of prolonged exposure, even short-term contact with one or more of these elements can cause a significant problem. Exacerbating factors can include poor design or installation; improper primer or paint application; and caulking, paint, and / or primer that is low in quality. If left unattended, wood rot can lead to serious problems, including termite damage and damage to the framing lumber. For this reason, it is very important to act quickly once you have identified rotting wood in your home.
