  • Siding (water absorption, delamination)

Whether your home has vinyl or aluminum siding, chances are the home is still supported by wood framing, trim, and plywood. The experts Osborne Painting will extensively observe these wooden materials in order to understand the shape they’re in along with predicted issues that may arise. Any kind of growth such as fungus, mold, or mildew on a home’s siding, especially near any seam areas, may be a sign of water penetration. If the layer under a home’s siding has started to rot or become weak, that is an indication the home’s siding is due for replacement as soon as possible. 

  • Windows (windowsills, stops, brickmolds)

Typically lingering on windowsills and around windows for extended amounts of time, rotted wood is commonly found in these areas. As time goes on, water accumulates on or around the windowsill and wears away the existing paint. The existing paint wearing away enables water to seep into the wood and lead to a rot. 

  • Doors (brickmolds casings, jambs, decorative surrounds, pilasters)

Nearly all exterior doors contain wood, which, as you may be able to guess, makes them susceptible to water damage and vulnerable to other elements. We will pay special attention to the lower sections of the door, as they’re prime areas for fungi and other unwelcomed forms of growth. 

  • Trim (corner boards, fascia, soffit)

Wood trim is everywhere, it’s that simple. Let us check your wood trim out to determine areas that can likely become an issue or setback. 

  • Decks and add-ons

Like exterior doors, decks typically contain a lot of wood that is exposed to ice, rain, sun, snow, and anything in between. If you’re wondering what to do when your deck begins deteriorating, Osborne Painting offers extensive deck inspection, assessing the make up the deck and deck stairs from above and below and the health of the ledger board.
