As the summer rolls in many homeowners are trying to bug proof their homes and begin their preparations for mosquito hordes, summer heat, and increased outdoor activity. These activities may include fixing up decks or windows, pest control services, or setting up curtains and blinds to protect your home from the outside heat. Replacing rotten wood is an important and often overlooked chore to many.
Rotten wood is often repainted and ignored until it becomes a large problem or an eyesore. During the summer months increased pest populations will lead to more termites and wood bugs to feast on your wood and help it rot faster, and thanks to the increase heat and precipitation your exposed wood will continuously expand and shrink.
