By the time you notice wood rot, the damage has already been done

Most people don’t see or notice wood rot until it’s too late. Maybe you’re getting ready to paint a window sill, do some trim work, or decking and then notice wood rot damage. Or, perhaps you are having your roof repaired or getting work done in your crawlspace, and the contractor comes and tells you there’s a problem. Depending on where the wood rot is located, will determine the type of damage that can occur if left untreated. But wherever the damage may be, there’s one thing you can be sure of…wood rot is going to allow excess moisture in, and that moisture brings with it serious problems.

What causes wood rot?

There are several different factors that can cause wood rot in your roof, which is why it’s important to understand what problems can make your roof at risk.

  • Clogged or misaligned gutters
  • Roof ventilation
  • Damaged roofing materials

How does roof venting help with minimizing wood rot?

  • Your roof is more than a barrier from the moisture, it also allows the house to ‘breathe’ and RELEASE moisture (much in the way a bathroom or attic fan does).
  • A properly vented roof expels much of the water vapor that builds up in the home and plays an important role in keeping the moisture content in building materials to safe levels.

Is wood rot localized or can it spread?

If your home has wood rot in one area, there’s a chance it may be in other areas as well. Before starting on repairs, AmeriPro Roofing will conduct a thorough assessment of your home in order to determine if wood rot exists anywhere else, and how it is best addressed and resolved.

What Our Customers
Are Saying

“I couldn’t be happier with all the professionals at AmeriPro Roofing. From the time they gave me my roofing estimate, to the way they explained every single thing they were going to do, their service was outstanding. The repairs went exactly as they promised, and they stayed on schedule, and answered every question I had, and I had a lot of them. They treated me like a human being, instead of a person who filled their quota.”

“We wanted to improve the look of our home with new siding, but we had no clue what colors to use, or what materials would work best. Our contact at AmeriPro Roofing was so patient and treated us with respect and kindness. We had a lot of questions, and we got the right answers every time. I was nervous about this project, but the vinyl siding is beautiful, and the color we chose just pops like you wouldn’t believe. Worth every penny.”

“Our roof needed replacing, and I had called a bunch of other roofers near me. Some were really pushy, and others treated me like I was stupid. The guy at AmeriPro Roofing was a total pro. He was a straight shooter, listened before he talked, and told me he couldn’t give me any kind of estimate until he did an inspection. After the free inspection, I was sold, and I figure to get another 30 years out of this brand-new roof. Couldn’t be happier with AmeriPro Roofing.”
