WHat causes wood rot
- Clogged gutters: Clogged gutters causes water overflow on the side of your home. When the water is not draining properly it flows down the side of your home
- Roof ventilation: Without proper roof ventilation your home can not breath. This means built-up vapors and moisture becomes trapped with no way of escaping.
- Damaged roofing materials: When your roof has damage it becomes an entry point for water; which is necessary for wood rot. With a properly working roof water will flow off the roof and away for your home.
