Preventing rot in cedar siding.. observations and questions before paint
Matthew, I may be over stating the problem. I tend to get overwhelmed. I have NO idea how long its been since this house was painted and the paint has been missing for almost a decade I would guess. It smells like cedar, thats for sure.
Not every spot where there is a nail is rotted, but it seems like they didn't set the nails and caulk with a quality caulk. Caused the nails to pop a bit and break the already crap painted surface.
The trim I am referring to is on the outside corners of the house where two walls meet. Seems the paint cracked at that junction and has let lots of moisture in. Ill try to get photos when I get home tonight. It must be galvanized steel because its showing very minor rust
Thanks - Evan
