Rotten Wood Repair and Replacement
In our climate rotten wood is not an uncommon home repair, especially with older homes. Rotted wood is almost always a result from moisture intrusion and it can happen in both the exterior and interior of your home. It could be some missing roof flashing that has allowed the water to get in, it could be wood rot on a deck or exterior stairs, or it could be from a plumbing leak inside of your walls or ceilings. Regardless of what the cause is, the problem needs to be fixed properly.
Santa’s Little Helpers, LLC is a full service handyman and home repair company serving Tallahassee Florida and the surrounding area. We specialize in replacing rotten wood in decks, fences, stairs, and outbuildings. Whether you need to rebuild some rotten stairs on your deck, replace rotten fence boards, or repair some rotten wood siding, as the long as the wood rot isn’t structural, we’ll be able to help.
Deck Repair or Deck Refacing, What’s Your Best Option?
This really depends on your intended use of the structure, it’s current condition and how much you’re willing to spend on it. If you have a few rotten boards that need replacement but the rest of your decking material and the structure below is sound, then some simple repairs are all that are needed.
If your decking material hasn’t been taken care of so it’s badly sun bleached, there are boards warped and lifting, exposed nail or screw heads and other issues then an actual deck refacing might be in order. A deck refacing project basically utilizes the existing deck frame and structure but we’d remove all of the surface material and replace it with new boards. This is much less expensive than rebuilding your deck, but we’d need to have a look at your project first.
