Carpentry Saves Structures
Peeling and blistering paint often signal inadequate interior ventilation, or a missing vapor retarder, which in turn creates the ideal conditions for wood rot.
Water stains on framing and sheathing inside walls suggest condensation. Remember that to make the remedy permanent, you’ve got to cure the disease -water infiltration, not just treat the symptoms- mildew, mold, and decay. Find the source of the moisture and seal it!
So keep in mind that the original problem that started it all has to be repaired.
