I See The Hanging Light, But What About All That Rotted Wood?
Proper lighting around the exterior of an apartment or home is very important. I got a call to take a look at the lighting near the garbage dumpster of an apartment community; the light was falling off.
In looking at an exterior light that was coming down near a garbage dumpster, I couldn’t help but notice that the wood was severely rotted. The rot had been going on for quite some time with no repairs made to correct the problem.
Sure I could probably get the light to function correctly but the dry rotted wood should also be addressed. Clearly there have been at least two large pieces that have come down with a few more that were unsafe. I think it may be a good idea to either fix the wood members by replacing them, or remove the structure completely before someone gets hurt.
Either way, an experienced general contractor may be the best decision to call for advice in your area.
