When hiring a dry rot repair contractor wherein the roof is involved, hire a roofing contractor who can also perform wood repairs. But if the wood repairs are extensive you may need to hire both specialty contractors.
Hire a contractor who is also concerned with what caused the dry rot in the 1st place. If the source of the damaged wood is not corrected, the problems will reoccur over and over again.
Make sure the contractor understands that structural wood such as rafters and fascia sometimes need a creative solution or a complete replacement from head to tail. For instance rafter tails support the roof, and rather than just cut and splice, it may need to be completely replaced which means all the way through the attic. Fascia as well supports the roof in some areas and sometimes need complete replacement at that section.
Hire a Dry Rot contractor who will be conservative and not replace everything that may have a few termite tunnels that can be treated. A conservative wood repair approach combined with a treatment or fumigation, will save you money and provide a thorough and concise job.
Walk around with the Dry Rot Repair Contractor and understand what your home needs, ask questions. It’s best to put your heads together and make decisions. Choosing which wood to be replaced and how, are subjective and different contractors will have different ideas and techniques.
