Wood Rot Repair
Wood rot occurs when untreated wood is exposed to water for an extended period of time. Most of the
time, water simply causes fungi that stains wood and discolors it, mostly creating cosmetic damage
that could lead to structural problems over time. At other times, different kinds of fungi grow that
decompose the wood’s structure, causing certain areas of the wood to not only change color but lose
their structural integrity by becoming softer and more brittle. If allowed to proliferate, this
fungus can cause serious damage to exposed wood.
For minor wood rot repair needs, repairs are usually relatively simple for an experienced handyman.
Minor repairs require that the rotted wood be stripped from its source and that the source wood be
treated with special chemicals to restore its integrity.
For more major wood rot repair, like to large areas of a wood patio or deck, entire panels or boards
may need to be replaced. These jobs are more laborious, requiring more time and labor to complete,
not to mention carpentry expertise.
If you have wood damage as the result of wood rot due to water damage, you can call on a Sears
Handyman for assistance.
Termite Damage Repair
Termites have become a particular nuisance in recent years, especially to homeowners in certain
areas of the country where termites are prevalent. Termites can cause extreme financial difficulty
for homeowners—not only to remove a termite infestation, but to repair any damage termites have
caused to barns, homes, sheds, or other wood structures. Termites damage around 600,000 homes and
cause about $5 billion of damage annually.
When you have minor to intermediate damage to wood structures, a Sears Handyman can usually help.
Our carpentry experts can solve problems that have occurred as a result of termite damage to decks,
patios, sheds, and some home fixtures. For more major termite damage, a contractor may be needed,
but for termite damage that has not threatened the structural integrity of a home or large structure,
our handyman technicians can help.
