Hambleton Handyman Wood Rot Repairs

Wood rot is one of the most common problems that homeowners face. It can be caused by a variety of factors, including water damage, insects, and age. If left untreated, wood rot can spread quickly and cause serious damage to your home. Fortunately, wood rot repairs can be taken care of by a skilled handyman.

Structural – Wood rot can lead to serious structural problems or even the collapse of a building. That said, when wood rot is detected, it’s important to have a professional come and assess the damage. They’ll be able to tell you the best way to proceed with repairs. In some cases, it may be possible to simply replace the rotted wood. In other cases, more extensive repairs may be necessary. Regardless of the extent of the damage, wood rot repair is an important process that should not be ignored.

Decks – Wood rot is also a serious problem for any wood deck owner. Not only does it make the deck unsightly, but it can also lead to structural weakness or collapse. Thankfully, wood rot repairs are relatively simple and can be completed by a qualified contractor. With a little bit of work, your deck will be safe AND look good as new.

Exterior trim – Exterior trim is another common area affected by wood rot, as it is constantly exposed to the elements. If you notice any signs of wood rot on your exterior trim, a reputable contractor will be able to assess the damage and provide you with repairs or replacements.

Door & window frames – Wood rot is a common problem in older door frames as well as window frames and sills, causing them to become weak and unstable. In many cases, the only way to repair the damage is to replace the affected wood. However, there are some situations where wood rot repairs can be made without replacing the entire frame. A professional handyman will know how to take care of your door and window frame rot.

I’ve used Hambleton for several small projects (exterior wood rot repair, exhaust vents installation.) I will continue to use in the future. Techs know what they’re doing and compared to others, prices are reasonable.

FAQs About Wood Rot Repair

Can wood rot be repaired?

Rotting wood can be repaired. Employ a professional handyman to remove any rot from the original wood board or beam. Then, the area can be filled with a polyester or wood-patch filler. These materials will fill the area and harden to provide renewed strength and stability.

Note that this can only be done for minor areas, however. Widespread damage often must be wholly replaced.

How much does it cost to repair wood rot?

Repairing rotted wood costs anywhere from $500 to $10,000. Pricing all depends on the extent of the rot, the type of wood, and the accessibility of the affected area. Nonetheless, the cost will be well worth preventing further damage to your home.
