Wood Rot Repair

You want your commercial building in Pleasant Hill, CA to be a beautiful, relaxing, and secure place for your customers, employees, and business partners. However, decaying parts in the wooden elements of your commercial building should be a cause for concern instead of a mere nuisance.  

If wood rot is left unaddressed, not only can it ruin the aesthetics of your commercial property, but it can also cause severe structural damage, leading to more serious problems down the road. To keep your commercial building in good condition and ensure the safety of your customers, employees, tenants, and partners, repairing or replacing wood rot before painting should be a crucial and immediate action.

It is recommended to leave wood rot repairs or replacements to the professionals, depending on the extent of damage. Hiring commercial painting contractors makes sense because they frequently deal with wood rot in the course of their work. Custom Painting, Inc.’s skillful and able-bodied crew will take care of your wood rot problems by either painting the damaged wood or replacing it entirely with new wood.

The wood rot problem

Wood rot is decay typically caused by fungal growth in damp wood. While experts usually classify two types of wood rot as wet rot and dry rot, this has been misleading as all rotted wood develops from a single cause – moisture. It means dry rot has also been wet at one time or another.

The following signs of wood rot include:

  • Discoloration or staining
  • Soft or spongy wood
  • Cracks and spits
  • Weakening of the wood
  • Musty smell
  • Mold and mildew growth
  • Insect infestation
  • Excess moisture

Custom Painting Inc.’s wood rot repair and replacement services

Custom Painting, Inc. typically follows the step-by-step process below for wood rot repair or replacement, which may include:

  1. Inspect the property for wood rot and assess the extent of the damage.
  2. Develop a customized repair or replacement plan, such as finding out (and eliminating) the root cause of it and getting rid of rot by replacement instead of repair.
  3. Repair or replace the affected wood area depending on the following factors:
    • The severity of the damage.
    • The structural significance of the affected wooden area. For example, if wood rot shows up in beams, columns, or roof joists, it should be a safety issue instead of an aesthetic issue. Thus, replacement is typically the better option than repair in this case.
    • The cost of repair versus replacement.
  4. Treat existing wood rot and prevent future rot by applying wood hardener, filler, or epoxy, or replacing damaged wood with new wood or other material, such as PVC or fiber cement replacement boards.
  5. Paint, stain, or seal the treated or replaced wood area.
  6. Conduct final inspection and quality control.
