Manteca Handyman - Fence or Siding Repair

 

There are a lot of different causes of dry rot but certainly, water is always involved.  Once raw lumber is found around water or simply is open to considerable humidity, it's going to grow fungi.  When a fungi starts, it generates volumes of vulnerable areas within the lumber which usually results in the raw lumber to fall apart and rot.  In order to allow you to avoid this kind of corrosion, follow this advice you can use.

The problem with having water near wood is that (because of rain) it's everywhere.  In order to help lessen the issues with your lumber, you should seal the wood with an appropriate product.  Paint and primer is the most common way to seal wood, stains are also good. Dry rot causes timbers to become weak, so sealing your lumber before it gets too much exposure may help you avoid eroding as well as failures in strength.  Check out timbers which are much less likely to build fungi like cedar or red wood.  You might likewise go with wood which is pretreated called pressure treated lumber or "pre-primed".  Connect with a Manteca handyman or even with a builder to determine what types of stains or simply wood types they often suggest to do a fence or siding repair.
