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.
