If your home has wood damage, you should have it repaired as soon as possible. Wood damage is usually brought on by excessive amounts of moisture in the basement or crawlspace area of a home. Moisture gets into the area through cracks or any other openings. A basement which doesn't have a waterproofing system in place, and a crawlspace with no vapor barrier, are especially prone to moisture and wood damage. If you neglect wood damage, it can greatly effect the structual integrity of your home.

On the subject of repairing wood damage, moisture is easily its most prevalent cause. The moisture usually enters from outside sources, though, they can also be produced inside also. Often, most homeowners are unaware that the earth around the basement walls might have a lot of moisture. The reason behind high moisture content inside the soil could include surface water that is leaking down into the soil or maybe from a high water table. A high water table may be explained by heavy down pours that make the water table to go up higher than your basement floor.
Generally, water will find its way inside a basement by gravity or by way of a crack or problem within the water protection layer of your foundation. Water can also be pulled up by way of a "wicking action" or "pushed up" by hydrostatic pressure from the soil beneath the walls or flooring. During the summer, warm damp air from the outside may easily go into the home and result in condensation on the cool basement wall surfaces or flooring. In areas that could experience freezing temperatures, the following scenario may appear if there is a crack found: the water will go in through the crack then freeze and expand. With each and every cold season, the crack could eventually get bigger because of the expansive properties of the frosty water.
