HOW TO PREVENT ROT AND DECAY
Much of the rot and decay we see at Westbrook Restorations usually could have been prevented if just a little more time and attention was devoted to the project. When taking apart someone else’s prior construction, I find myself in the unique position of being able to see the results of a compromised structure or system. Over time, I’ve been able to apply what I’ve learned to better my building technique. Most tradespeople don’t have the opportunity to return 10 or 15 years later to see how their work has (or hasn’t) held up against the elements, or get the opportunity to learn from what they see.
