With Winter behind us – all thoughts turn to the sunny outdoors. This includes relaxing and completing those “I’ll get to it sometime” projects.
As the old saying goes – prevention is better than cure – so we recommend you take a look at your window frames. Now. Press against the wood – is it soft? This is the sign that the wood is rotting.
The sooner you have this repaired, the better for your house and wallet. You see, once rot sets in, it keeps on rotting. This will lead to major repairs or worse, replacement of your window frame – or frames!
Simply bogging the rot may be a short term solution, but as wood expands and shrinks with the weather, gaps will soon form again – letting on more water and expanding the rot.
The same applies for paint. Sure, it will cover the rot, but won’t fix it.
And then there’s this…
While you’re inspecting your window frames, take a look at your deck. Is it bouncy? This could indicate some of the support beams are weakening. Once again, an inspection now, could save you a lot of money and embarrassment, should the deck give way mid-function.
