Boxing Day

Today is Boxing Day in Canada.  For some reason, Canadians love pugilism.  Have a go at the punching bag on Boxing Day.

Canadians also enjoy stacking boxes on Boxing Day.  Whoever has the highest stack wins a prize.  Like a car battery as seen in this photo.

Wood Rot

December 22nd, 2015 · 3 Comments

You woodn’t think there was wood rot in Phoenix, but, yes, we have it.  Mostly due to blazing sun rays and dry air.

Wood rot can be prevented or delayed with a good coat of paint and proper roof edging.

Here’s a patio support beam.  Wood rot will show up in a termite inspection report.  And if a lender sees the termite report, the rot will be required to be replaced/corrected before the buyer’s loan is approved.  If I see wood rot during a listing appointment, I point it out to the seller and strongly suggest it be corrected before the house goes up for sale.
