Dry rot is a problem that can come up on any construction project and it has even reared its ugly head here at Save Energy Company. As explained in the last blog, we had decided to repaint the building and during our preparations we found several trim boards that had dry rot. As you can see in the photo below, we were able to apply the new brown base color on the body of the building but several trim boards between the front door and window have been removed and need to be replaced. So this brings up a good lesson about how to handle dry rot, termites or other unforeseen issues with your home improvement project when you are hiring a contractor.First of all, the contractor should explain when they prepare and go over their bid with you that there is always a possibility that unforeseen circumstances like dry rot may come up during the project. If you don’t talk about it beforehand then you are more likely to be disappointed and upset when it does happen later. No one like...
A federal law passed more than two years ago finally takes effect on (appropriately enough) April 22, Earth Day. On that day the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will begin enforcing its regulations covering work performed in homes that might possibly contain lead paint. Because the vast majority of houses in San Francisco were built before 1978, this law is set to affect nearly every homeowner. The 1978 date is critical because that is when the government finally banned the use of lead-based paints.Lead never decomposes, leaving a risk for homeowners, their friends and family, and any future occupants. Lead also binds to soil, so exterior remodeling of homes may result in the contamination of lawns that will remain hazardous for years. The EPA’s standards have been enacted to drastically reduce the risk homeowners take when hiring a contractor to perform work on their homes. Processes and procedures have been developed that renovators are required to follow. Unfortunately...
