Rotted wood on your home siding is more than just an eyesore – it may signal that your wood needs to be repaired or, better yet, replaced. Depending on the damage, you may be able to fix it yourself. However, it would be better to hire a painter to repair and paint rotted wood and save yourself from further trouble.
Water leaks, mold, mildew, and insects cause rotted wood. It can be easy to spot and spreads quickly, leading to irreversible damage to the structure of your home. Professional painting contractors, such as Custom Painting, Inc., have the experience to identify and repair or replace rotted wood, ensuring that all wood rot and its traces are completely removed to prevent the problem from returning.
When choosing between repairing and replacing, the latter is better, especially if the affected wood feature is structurally important such as beams, columns, and joists. When rotted wood appears in any of these structures, your concerns quickly turn from aesthetics to safety. Although you can take a handful of measures to repair minor damage in these wood features, replacement is usually better and the preferred option when dealing with rotted wood in these areas.
Custom Painting, Inc.., can take care of the rotted wood problem
Rotted wood not only ruins your home’s curb appeal but can also lead to irreversible structural damage to your home if not addressed promptly.

Here are the various reasons to hire Custom Painting, Inc. to tackle the wood rot problem:
- Quality work – With Custom Painting, Inc.’s over four decades of experience in the business, you know that you can count on us to do quality work. Surface preparation is vital to a significant and long-lasting paint finish. Cutting corners isn’t in our vocabulary – we take every step painstakingly and use the best paints and tools to ensure that your newly painted home will look great as new and last for many years.
- Efficiency – Like many similar companies, Custom Painting, Inc. makes a living out of painting. We can effectively manage our time to complete the project on time and within budget.
- The gift of time – Any residential painting job takes considerable time. There’s so much work to be done before actually getting into the painting part itself. You must do surface prep work – cleaning the walls, repairing any existing damage (like rotted wood), applying mildewcide (if your siding suffers from mold problems), and priming the walls. There’s also going to the store to buy paints and tools, remove drapes, take down wall decor, cover furniture and floor with drop cloths, and tap the wall edges, which require a lot of work. That’s not even including the time devoted to painting the walls and letting them dry! Once the painting is done, you’ll still find time to put back the furniture, re-install the drapes, re-hang the wall decor, and put back the lighting. Hiring Custom Painting, Inc. saves time and allows you to focus on the other things you need to do. Leave the job to us and protect yourself from sweat and trouble!
