There is nothing more beautiful than a warm log home or wood house perched back in a Washington forest or above a wide open field. But anyone familiar with wood homes knows the one thing that can ruin this picture – wood rot. When moisture and fungi permeate the wood, it can cause devastating damage. Because wood is porous, when water molecules get in, they can damage the wood as it expands and contracts with the temperature. Fungi, which thrives in warm, damp conditions, then moves in, slowly digesting the wood, leading to decay and rot. This is a horrible scenario for any wood homeowner – so what to do about it? Thankfully, there are some preventative measures you can take to prevent wood rot in your home, such as applying wood coating and finish.
