Crawlspace and Basement Wood Rot Repair
Wood rot can happen at any time, anywhere in a crawlspace or basement. Even small rainwater leaks or condensation caused by summer humidity can cause significant damage over time, threatening the durability and structural integrity of floor joists, sub-floor, door thresholds, siding, interior and exterior trim, etc. In addition, soft, rotting wood is an open invitation for termite infestation, which can require extensive termite control treatments, and ultimately work that will repair termite damage. If you notice any moisture control issues in your basement, crawlspace, or floor, you may be a victim of wood rot and could be under threat of future termite damage and/or potentially expensive structural repairs.
