Wood Rot Damage Repair & Replacement.
Houses in the Omaha area and across eastern Nebraska and western Iowa often succumb to wood rot. The major cause of wood rot is undrained moisture and softscaping near siding. Houses with hardwood siding are exposed to the highest risk.
Wood rot particularly affects homes that have shrubbery, trees, and grass close to the siding. If that sounds like most older homes, you’re not mistaken. Today’s landscaping techniques, such as placing gravel or pebbles between the house and lawn can reduce the risk of wood rot. But even those techniques can only do so much. Homes built in low-lying areas also experience a high degree of wood rot.
Dr. Exteriors combats wood rot effectively by removing the damaged wood and installing proper flashing, pushing water away from the siding. Dr. Exteriors has a professional staff experienced in wood rot repair services. We also install a moisture-resistant frieze board for increased protection.
Correcting the problem of wood rot in this way results in you saving money. The alternative, replacing all of the siding and window trim, can be quite expensive.
