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.

They stucco’d the exterior but didn’t finish with paint.  They also enclosed the carport.

Punk’d

October 12th, 2015 · 2 Comments

The roof was tagged.  The message probably said, “Time for a new roof.”  The owner then painted this message on the side of his house:  “A punk painted on my house when I was gone.”

Rough Roofs

It might just need a new roof.  Some day.

Don’t worry about this roof.  It rarely rains in Phoenix.

No problem here.  You see, the tarp protects the roof and adds more years to it.  Shields it from the sun.

Those curls on the shingles?  That’s fun and whimsical.  Who wants a boring flat roof?

The Eave of Destruction

February 4th, 2015 · 1 Comment

Wood rot is common in Phoenix due to low humidity and hot temperatures.  Makes exposed wood dry and brittle.  Here are a few eaves & fascia boards that could use replacement.

If not repaired before selling, it will become an issue with some buyers.  A termite inspection report will have a box checked that there is wood rot.  A buyer’s lender might look at the termite report and require the repair.
