Assessing and Address Your Residential Rot Repair in BC

Residential rot repair in BC is a serious concern for many homeowners; from strata property owners to single-family homes, as well as businesses. Our wet climate can lead to structural rot, and it is something that needs to be addressed swiftly to manage.

How to Fix Rotting Lumber

Finding wood rot early will often allow a professional to seal and fix the problem, avoiding further damage. Wood putty is one way that wood rot can be addressed, but this is often a short-term solution that will tackle minor repairs.

Where Does Condensation Come From?

Moist air is a common culprit for condensation. When moist air comes in contact with lower temperatures, it causes humidity leading to condensation. Over time, condensation inside your space can lead to interior and structural damage. Both drywall and wood can absorb the moisture and end up rotting, making your living environment unsafe.
