How to Check for Rotted Wood
Consider walking around your house a few times a year and inspecting the wood for rot.
- Look at the edges of trim, especially where it meets the roof line or meets the ground.
- Look at window sills and other wood components that lay flat and allow water to settle on them.
- If you are unsure if an area is rotted, then gently push on the area with a small screwdriver; if it sinks in and the wood is soft, it’s rotted.
Ok, so you’ve got rot! Let’s talk about why it happened, what can be done to prevent it and options for repairs.
