Florida is a humid and hot region of the country The perpetual dampness that permeates from the ocean and creates a perfect environment for dry rot to occur.
Wood destroying rot is almost like a “cancer” because it eats the cellulose in your wood, turns it soft like a damp kitchen sponge and it spreads and infects the wood members attached to it! With dry rot damage, you can spend a little now to keep your home maintained or you can spend a whole bunch more, later!

Water damage, whether caused by flood, sewer backup, leaky roof or broken pipe, is something that needs to be restored quickly. Water damage left untreated often results in mold and further damage. Moisture seepage and water damage to buildings and contents occurs in a wide variety of sizes, causes and resultant damages. One common trait of any water damage is that if it is not addressed promptly and professionally it could lead to more extensive damages.
Other potential repercussions to not acting quickly on water damages are mold growth and bacterial growth rot of structural building materials.

Repairing Rotten Wood Siding
The most popular rot repair method is to cut the bottom two feet off around the entire house piece-in a 1×4 band board with new wood siding below the band – we do not recommend this.
The problems that arise with this method are:
- Vapor barrier behind the wood is also cut and cannot be effectively re-sealed.
- The 1×4 band board sticks out past the 5/8″ siding all the way around your home at the bottom where more water collects and builds up as it runs down your home.
- This band does not have a flange like windows do. When water runs down your home it gets trapped the band acts like a dam. The dam effect invites the water into your home right where the cut in the vapor barrier is from removing the bottom of the siding.
- The only defense against this water intrusion is quality caulk and paint. Both caulk and paint deteriorate over time. The dam becomes a high maintenance location and something else to keep in mind.
- With Florida rain, wind driven rain a pinhole becomes a funnel and compromises the structure of your home as well as your interior walls, baseboard, flooring and feeds mold.
- This type of seepage or any wind driven rain seeping in is not covered by homeowners insurance. Minor seepage often goes unchecked longer causing more damage because it never really dries out.
We replace entire sheets of siding eliminating the leak issue and leaving little evidence of any rework. No worries.
Depending on your budget we can water seal the back 24 inches and bottom edge of the wood siding before installation adding more years to the natural life of the siding.
We can also color match and paint the siding for you, offering you a complete job. If you have your own painter or you like to DIY, we always prime the siding to keep it water sealed until the paint goes on within a couple months.
