Wood Siding Repair In Sacramento

If you think that you have dry rot on the exterior wood siding and trim of your property, chances are you probably do! But how do you know for sure?

You don't have to be an expert to see that the wood on the building has areas that is soft or discolored. Touch it with your hand, is it soft to the touch? Good wood trim and siding should be as solid as the original product. If the wood is soft then the decay has begun to destroy the wood.

Are there areas on the exterior of the building that have changed colors over time? This change in color can be an early warning sign to future problems and should be looked at to find the cause of the change. The wood may not be rotting yet but will likely begin soon. The discolored wood is getting moisture behind it, from a roof leak, plumbing pipe leak or some source of water that should not be there.

Luckily, these problem areas can be repaired and precautions taken to help prevent this sort of thing from happening again in the future. The problem never gets better, only worse, so doing something now is important. If you are capable, do the repairs yourself. If not, contact someone who knows how to make these repairs. Early correction of these areas can save your property from extensive repairs in the future.


  1. Exactly right! Wood easily moist especially when you are not aware of the leaks that penetrated by the water inside the wall. Even if this is only a few drops, it can make a big damage. You can easily notice the difference of the wood that is already damaged or not. Basically, inspecting every edge of your house from time to time can help prevent the further damage, and it can be repaired as soon as possible. I suggest that it would be better if you ask assistance from the expert; I know they can detect more damages not just on the wall but also in other parts of the house.

  2. “Early correction of these areas can save your property from extensive repairs in the future.” You are definitely right. Don’t wait for a part of the house to reach severe deterioration that you can’t do anything anymore but to totally replace it. That may turn out to be quite expensive, so small signs that indicate a need for repairs should be given attention. Regularly inspect your home, and do not neglect looking into the hidden areas of the house, particularly the wood siding that is mostly prone to rot.
