Dry Rot Repair

The Pacific Northwest & Dry Rot

The Pacific Northwest, though fun, exciting and majestic in all of its beauty, comes with some potential hazards to your dwelling in the form of Dry Rot. Dry Rot can often be identified by black lines coming down around a window on a house or the brick molding around a door crumbling away at the bottom and top pieces. These warning signs could be an indicator to even greater problems such as mold or potential structural damage. Dry Rot is generally caused by lack of preventative maintenance or an improper installation of a door, window or siding.

At AFJ, we can help with preventative maintenance and Dry Rot repairs. Our qualified technicians will do a full walk around your home looking for any problem areas and suggest repairs or preventative maintenance procedures as needed. We will assist you in updating your home with z-metal flashing above doors and windows if needed and update any failed or failing calk around your property. If we find any weather damage we can help establish a repair plan that will fit your budget and time frame.

It is important to understand that Dry rot spreads over time and the amount of damage caused by water entering your structure can be hard to gauge until it is actually torn into. This is why at AFJ Handyman Service, we will give you the option of doing your repairs on a Time and Material basis or via a bid. As well, we have developed a home maintenance plan to help keep Dry Rot and other potential hazards to your home under control at discounted service rates. You can learn more about this plan and some of the exciting benefits it has for you and your home here: Exterior Home Maintenance Program. Remember when it comes to Dry Rot, an ounce of prevention is a pound of cure.
