The outside of your home is exposed to some pretty severe
elements; snow, water, ice, heat. These things take their toll. Few

home, call me at 905-650-2699. We can discuss the options so that

(Pictures 1 to 3) The house was about
20 years old in an upscale neighborhood. The owners were concerned about discoloration on some
aluminum capping below their window build-outs and asked me to check it out.
what I found. The vinyl siding had been incorrectly installed
by the original builder. For 20 years, during each rainfall, water seeped
behind the siding and rotted away the wood underneath. Mold and
carpenter ants took up residence and by the time I inspected it, some of
the front of the house was literally rotted away. The wooden windows
on both floors were decayed. A lot of the wood crumbled in my hands. It was
a few days we installed new windows. The rotten and moldy wood was
replaced with a new structure. New insulation was installed, a new vapor barrier was in place.
The windows were properly flashed, (see red flashing on picture #2).
The house was wrapped with a waterproof building wrap and the
siding was replaced. This time it was done right. The carpenter ants
are gone and the homeowners are delighted.
