The Importance of Maintaining Your Exterior Wood

I see it all too often, homeowners who let the elements and time decay both cosmetic and structural wood . A third of our estimates include extensive wood replacement, and just as many more have some replacement required. Whether it’s siding, trim, decking, window sills, brick molding, or even fences, these expenses add up.

And to think, it all could of been avoided.

It doesn’t take long to walk the perimeter of your home and look for pest damage, decay, and rot. My opinion is people should do it in the spring and fall, and maybe more , say, if your home is cedar sided....or it’s been many years since a fresh coat of paint or stain. Most don’t realize the protective nature of these products and what they do to stave off future problems. The following pictures are examples of improperly maintaining exterior wood.
