We can help repair Kansas City wood rot before it becomes a BIG problem.

woodrotWood rot often comes as an unpleasant surprise. Left untreated, with the right conditions, wood rot can spread and eventually weaken the structure of your home. Of course, a home with significant rot will also lose its re-sale value, so it’s important to take action. Often you can tell by looking at your siding and trim, but sometimes rafters, and/or ridge board is rotted, or even worse, structural beams and joists!

What causes rot?

The fungal spores that cause wood to rot are all around us. Fortunately, they are not always active, and rot damage does not occur overnight. Dry rot is a common type of wood rot in which wood is attacked by fungi. The fungi destroy the parts of the wood that make it strong and firm.

To grow and begin to digest wood, fungal spores need adequate amounts of water and high relative humidity. When the moisture content of the materials with which your home is built is coupled with high relative humidity, the stage is set for rot.

A solid roof can help prevent dry rot damage.

Most of the strategies for fighting dry rot throughout the house begin with your roof. If your roof is not sound and your gutters are clogged or misaligned, tremendous amounts of water can enter your home and saturate the ground around your foundation (which can allow water to seep into your home). The first rule of proper home care is to make sure your roof is leak-free and in good repair.

We just used Collins Guaranteed Roofing, and we are very happy we chose them! Due to hail we needed a new roof, so we called a couple companies. Out of the three companies we called Collins Roofing was the only company to keep their appointment and were willing to meet with our insurance adjuster.

They are amazing! Came out very quickly after my call, and even came out again to meet with the insurance adjuster as well gave me a great price. I had several issues with my house that kept pushing their part back and they were very understanding and helpful in getting me in contact with contractors to help me get other issues resolved too.

They did a great job. They were on time, the clean up was excellent, and I would definitely use them again.

Steve F.Kansas City, MO

After I had my roof put on, I had a slight leakage around one of the pipes. I called them and he came out that same day and replaced the seal. I haven't had any issues since. They stand behind their warranty even years later.

We have used them for twenty-five years and three generations. They did my roof, my dad's roof, and my son's roof. We have never had an issue and are very satisfied with their work.
