Frequently, during a window replacement presentation, I am asked the question "what happens if you find rotten wood?". The answer is whenever we find rotten wood we replace it and do not cover it up. I will add, that in the last 8 years of replacing windows in the Fairlington neighborhood, I have
only had 10 experiences of rotten wood replacement. Typically we will take pictures and send them to the homeowner to document the problem and the fix.
