How to find rotten wood?

To find spots of rotting wood, get a screwdriver and start inspecting the boards on the exterior of your home. Start by checking boards lowest to the ground and along your roofline. Also, check the seams where two boards meet. Most rot is visible in plain sight, but often will be hidden. Remember that as you inspect, wood should never be soft when pressed. Use the tip of a screwdriver to press into questionable areas. If it gives, you should repair it. Cracks that appear to be folding in are a clear sign of rot.

Fascia Boards

Just like soffit boards, fascia boards can also show signs of rot and need to be replaced.

Porch Baseboards and Columns

Make sure to pay attention to rotting wood in your porch baseboards and columns, if you have a column structure.

Soffit Boards

Here's an example of what soffit boards look like when the wood starts to rot away.

Trim Boards

Trim is one of the most prominent parts on your home, and it's important to replace rotting wood from spreading and invading the structure of your home.

How to Prevent Wood Rot

If you are worried about wood rot impacting your home, it is best to maintain your wood surfaces with paint or stain. If your home exterior is in need of a fresh coat, we’ve got you covered. Applying these moisture resistant solutions is the best way to keep your home safe. It is also a good idea to watch your caulking. When this wears away due to general wear and tear, excess moisture can get under your wood surfaces as well.

Fascia & Soffit Repair

Here at CertaPro Painters® of Austin, we also offer our clients expert fascia and soffit repair services. Many of the homes in our community have wood fascia and soffits. These structures exist to prevent moisture and insects from wreaking havoc on your home. While these exterior surfaces are built to last, oftentimes during a storm or because of age, they can start to wear away or also experience wood rot. If you think you may be dealing with a faulty or damaged fascia or soffit, reach out to us for a repair today.
