Channahon home inspector finds wood rot

Channahon home inspector finds wood rot
The image above was reported by a Channahon home inspector during a home inspection. This is the front porch wood support, the wood to ground contact has contributed to wood rot at the base of the support. This can lead to loss of structural integrity of the support. The wood should be cut about 1/4 inch above the cement to stop the wood from wicking up any water. More than likely this would not have been noticed without having a Channahon home inspection.
