When you have noticed wood rotting across the periphery of your home, you need to act immediately. Repairing rotten wood is the first step before painting or repainting a home. When wood gets moistened, it may become a breeding ground for fungi. Any piece of exposed wood, even a tiny nick, allows unwanted moisture in. Once the moisture takes root, the fungus feeds on it and causes the wood to rot. With time, rotten wood may become a lot more challenging and costly to repair. The fungus eats the cellulose present in the wood while germinating and producing strands. Once the food source gets exhausted, the fungus then spreads to the surrounding wood to discover a new host. This is only the beginning. Rotten wood puts the whole structure of your home at risk since the wood becomes brittle and fragile. Also, insects such as termites, ants, weevils and beetles thrive in rotten wood because cavities in the wood give these pests a particular environment where they can breed.
Then there are the health and safety hazards. Moisture and condensation can lead to mold growth. Certain kinds of mold can cause allergy symptoms or worse. Moreover, paint can and will chip off of rotten wood.
