Re: Any way to prevent wood rot?
Rot is a byproduct of constant/excessive moisture. Stop the moisture problem and you stop the rot problem.
How do you prevent excessive moisture. 90% of the rot repairs I have performed were from sprinkler systems hitting the structure, insufficient drainage, or earth/wood contact. 10% were from poorly maintained systems such as roofs, gutters, failed paint, etc.
With more specific site info we may be able to direct you more to the exact cause and possible remedies.
