Q: What Determines Repair Versus Replacement For Termite Infestation?
A: If the termite damage is minor, the area can simply be repaired. However, when the termite damage is extensive, leaving the wood timber unable to carry its weight, it must be replaced.
Q: Can Dry rot Be Repaired?
A: Unfortunately, dry rot is an advanced stage of fungus that can only be remedied by wood replacement, not repair. In the early stage of dry rot, it is a fungus that is treatable and usually the wood is not severely damaged.
Q: Can I Do My Own Repairs And/Or Replacements?
A: Yes, some homeowners are capable of doing their own work or prefer to use another contractor. Keep in mind that if you are selling or refinancing your home (and going through escrow and a lender) the inspector will need to verify work done by a third party.
Q: Why Do I Need To Repair Or Remove A Section Of My Roof?
A: Termite or dryrot damage effecting the eaves or roof sheeting may require the roof be removed to allow the wood timbers to be replaced. The wood cannot be properly removed underneath the roof covering. After the damage has been exposed, further damage and repair may be necessary.
