Common Questions About Carpentry Projects
Can rotting wood be addressed with putty or a wood filler?
Yes, but only as a band aid solution. We always recommend replacing rotting or damaged boards with new boards. Wood rot will continue to spread if the board is not replaced.
What type of wood will you install on my house?
Most newer construction homes are built with trim that is rough sawn cedar. Fiber cement, press board, and T1-11 are also common residential building materials that we will use. We always recommend replacing boards with a matching type and finish.
