There are a number of things that can cause damage to your exterior wood work. Sunshine, moisture, wind, and cold temperatures are just a few of those things that become a problem for your exterior. Exposure to these elements often leaves rotten wood boards in exterior siding, trim, fences, decks, and railings.
Rotten wood is primarily caused by water intrusion, warmth, shade, and lack of fresh air. Even something as small as a particle of dirt can, overtime, under the perfect conditions, cause mold spores that will turn into rotten wood.
It is important that you hire a trusted professional to replace such pieces of wood before painting the exterior surface. We have highly knowledgeable employees who can do this for you.
