Wood rot occurs when water settles on untreated wood for an extended period of time. Most of the time, water creates fungi that stains wood and discolors it, causing cosmetic damage that might 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(1). If left untreated, this fungus can cause serious damage to exposed wood.
For minor wood rot repair needs, repairs are usually relatively simple for an experienced handyman. Sometimes, a handyman can strip the rotted wood from its source and then treat the wood with special chemicals to restore its integrity.
For larger wood rot repair projects, like 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 effort to complete, not to mention carpentry knowledge.
If you have wood rot damage, you can call on a Sears Handyman for assistance.
Termites can be an extreme nuisance to homeowners across the county, causing 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(2).
When you have minor to intermediate damage to wood structures, a Sears Handyman can usually help. Our carpentry experts can fix minor 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.
