Wet Rot

Siding Rot Repair Vancouver WA
Wet rot is the more common rot condition we encounter in Vancouver, WA. It develops after wood siding has prolonged exposure to moisture, and it usually affects wood with a moisture content greater than 30%. This is often due to defective stone pointing, gutters, down-pipes or plumbing. Moisture and wood allow for the growth of wet rot. This is a fungus that germinates, spreads, and destroys the integrity of wood. Siding rot repair in Vancouver, WA can fix your siding and associated damages.

Dry Rot
