Window Wood Rot Repair

What is Wood Rot?
Wood rot is a type of fungal decay in timber, the decay comes in two categories, white rot and brown rot. Decay usually starts when spores from the rot come into contact with damp timber. The damp timber allows the spores to establish themselves and grow using the wood as a food source. Symptoms of an attack of wood rot range from cross cuboidal cracking to mycelium on the surface of the wood and these symptoms vary depending on the type of rot, the type of wood and the conditions that the wood is subjected to. Wood rot usually reduces the strength of timber and is often accompanied by a fungal growth called a sporaphore or fruiting body which is the heart of the attack and produces more spores which continue the life cycle of the fungus. The most feared fungi is true dry rot (serpula lacrymans) which tends to cause more widespread damage than wet rot fungi .

How does wood rot affect my home?
Wood rot shouldn’t be taken lightly. It is very important to remove all rotten wood on your home. If rotten wood is left unattended on your home it will eventually cause water leaks, invite mold, termites, carpenter ants and other house destroying insects into your home.

Our Wood Rot Repair Process
Wood rot in windows is an issue that needs to be addressed at the first sign of trouble to prevent further damage. All window components affected by wood rot are removed and replaced with custom milled components that match the original profile. All of the components are rot resistant and carry a 25 year warranty! All exterior components are primed and painted white. The homeowner is responsible for putting on the final color coat, but we offer this service upon request. Once the repair is completed, the window looks just like the rest of the windows in the home.

The project manager was wonderfully easy to talk to and very thorough in his communication with me. The install team was polite, clean and efficient. The whole process of replacing the glass in the windows of our home was painless and much cheaper than replacing them. I would highly recommend Window Makeover to anyone!

I didn’t think that my old windows were salvageable but wow, when they were done it was really nice. This was a big project and there were a few hiccups as a result, but Window Makeover’s team communicated proactively and functionally and made everything right!

Professional, timely and they all fit well. What I really liked is they did not try to replace every window in the house, only the ones that needed it.

Thankfully, Window Makeover came out (the same day), looked at our window, gave us an estimate (for $200) and a week later we had a beautiful window again! Highly recommend!
