The primary cause of wood rot is excess moisture and burrowing insects. When water gets into or under the wooden structures at your home, it can create a pooling effect that creates the wood rot. This can happen to any wood surface on your property including wooden window frames, trims, soffits, fascia, and even fencing. Regular maintenance on your home is essential to stopping wood rot. If rotten wood is painted over, the symptoms will only worsen. Contact CertaPro Painters of Naperville for a free wood rot consultation.

How to Prevent Wood Rot

If you’re worried about wood rot impacting your home, you first need to know the warning signs. Check for any soft spots or cracking. If your wood is soft when pressed, this is a sure sign of wood rot. Any affected areas should be repaired as soon as possible to prevent further damage.

Once you get your wood rot repaired, long lasting success can be ensured by maintaining your wood surfaces with painting and staining. 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, excess moisture can get under your wood surfaces as well. To simplify the problem and beautify your home, get a fresh coat of paint for your home exterior today!

How to Fix Rotten Wood in Naperville

When wood rot is not severe a suitable solution may be to simply sand smooth and adequately seal it to avoid further damage. Smaller deteriorated spaces and holes can be filled with wood putty, then sanded, repainted or stained. These short-term rotten wood solutions may be sufficient to repair minor wood defects.

More severe wood rot however needs to be completely replaced for long-term service. When replacing the wood, a better wood selection may also be necessary. New wood too needs to be properly sanded and sealed to prevent recurring wood rot in the future. Many types of sealants are available and choosing the proper sealant is vital for your wood type and climate. Selecting the wrong sealant can lead to additional damage to your wood. This is where the professionals at CertaPro Painters® can help.
