WHat causes wood rot


If your Missouri home or business is experiencing wood rot, Fortified Roofing and Siding can identify the cause. Below, we’ve listed some of the most common causes of wood rot:

  • Clogged gutters: Clogged gutters causes water overflow on the side of your home.  When the water is not draining properly it flows down the side of your home
  • Roof ventilation: Without proper roof ventilation your home can not breath.  This means built-up vapors and moisture becomes trapped with no way of escaping.
  • Damaged roofing materials: When your roof has damage it becomes an entry point for water; which is necessary for wood rot.  With a properly working roof water will flow off the roof and away for your home.
We will investigate the situation and find the cause of the rot to insure it is not a recurring situation.
