Crawlspace and Basement Wood Rot Repair
Wood rot can happen in a basement or crawlspace at any time. Condensation from summer humidity and small leaks from rainwater can cause significant damage over time. This can threaten the structural integrity and durability of the subfloor, floor joists, siding, door thresholds, as well as interior and exterior trim. The soft rotting wood is the type of wood that termites prefer to eat. If you notice flaking wood, water staining or standing water, you may already have wood rot. You need to make the repairs to protect your home to prevent future damage and a possible termite infestation.
Wood rot can serious damage the structure of your home. It can start from a leak, but spread outward to other areas. If you do not deal with the wood rot when you find it, you may have it spread which means you will spend more on repairs. If you have a leak in your home, you need to dry the wood completely to stop wood rot from developing. Keep checking until the area is completely dry. EcoTek’s Home Services experts can address any wood rot issues in your home. They can identify the signs of wood rot, so that you can make the repairs right away.
