Our first mission, upon inspecting the area, is to assess the structural damage caused by the dry rot and discover the entry point for moisture that is causing the problem. After identifying areas affected by dry rot, we will take steps to remediate the rot.
Next, we properly prepare the area to be repaired by erecting temporary dust and debris protection and support structural framing with temporary shoring. We understand it is your home, and we take care to ensure that both the property and your home are protected. We take careful consideration of plants, pets, children, and family members who share your home and yard.
Then we remove all wood framing members and components with dry rot and treat those areas, cut edges, and cut ends with Copper Naphthenate. Dry rot might be in your walls, floors, or ceilings. Rest assured, we don’t remove anything until the entire area is supported and protected from dirt and construction debris. After we repair the area, we will pinpoint the source of the problem. Then, we’ll take appropriate measures to ensure this issue doesn’t reoccur. The solution could involve the use of exterior siding replacement, or repairing the building envelope that goes on top of the wood and under the siding.
