Roof leaks are common causes of water damage and wood rot. Water usually travels along the roof framing and/or sheathing to a point of collection and starts the gradual process of wood rot. If you see water damage on the attic side of the roof, exterior wood rot is also likely. Although most wood rot can be fixed by replacing the damaged areas with new wood, if not detected or fixed immediately wood rot may spread and cause other issues such as mold build up or even insect infestations.
If you suspect roof wood rot, it's important to take immediate action. First of all you must locate the source of the leaks that may have led to the rotting of wood, then after doing the necessary repairs locate the wood rot and make the necessary fixes. That or you can contact the wood rot repair professionals at Oscar Roofing and let us take care of this painstaking process and do it for you once and for all.

There are 2 types of wood rot, dry and wet, and both can ba cause by any number of moisture issues. Wood rot can grow quickly, destroying the strength of lumber, and it will spread unchecked until it runs out of moisture or wood, or the temperature becomes too hot or too cold. Before repairing damage caused by wood rot the conditions that caused it must be corrected or it will return. The most common sources of water that feeds wood rot are:
- Plumbing leaks
