Wet Rot

Siding Rot Repair Portland
Wet rot is the most widespread rot condition we see in Portland. When wood siding is exposed to moisture for an extended period of time, wet rot develops. Moisture content most often exceeds 30%. This can be caused by clogged or broken gutters, downpipes, plumbing or defective stone pointing. Wood and moisture allows wet rot to grow and thrive. After this fungus germinates it begins to spread, destroying the integrity of wood. Our Siding rot repair in Portland can fix your siding to a like new state and repair any associated damage.
