Did you know that nearly all painting projects are burdened with wood rot, damaged woodwork, or other carpentry repair issues? If you’ve noticed wood rot on your property’s siding and/or trim, our expert carpenters can install new casings to get it looking good as new.
These are some of the most common signs of wood rot:
- Visibly damaged, decaying, or crumbling woodwork
- Spore dust patches
- Pillow-like fungal growths
- Mushroom-like spores
- Musty of damp smell
If you’ve noticed any of these warning signs on your property, it’s time to schedule wood rot replacement and repair as soon as possible to avoid further spread of wood rot, and greater woodwork damage
What Happens if Wood Rot Is Neglected?
If wood rot is neglected, you risk further structural decay and damage as it spreads throughout the structure. Depending on where you find wood rot, that could lead to significant safety hazards. Rather than leaving an area of your commercial property, a room in your office, or an area of your home out of commission, hiring professional painters experienced in wood rot repair is a proactive way to correct the damage. Not only can our teams of painting contractors repair and replace rotted wood, they can prepare the new wood for painting, and paint it with the primer, paints, and coatings necessary to match your desired finishes.
