Assessment: The culprit of rotted boards on this home? Failed gutters! During the initial estimate Lime noticed the corners of the fascia boards right below the gutters were rotted. This home also had a beautiful stucco addition in the rear of the home that had gutters that were not sloped correctly and were missing a vital downspout. This resulted in extra water time on the fascia, crumbling stucco and water logged fascia boards. This home also had a deck in the back that had a number of floor boards that had rotted; this carpentry damage was due to poor paint product being used and the unique structure of the deck being so close to the ground.
Advise: Lime offered a complete solution for this homeowner to restore what was worn and prevent it from happening further. Lime replaced all 4 corners of fascia that had been rotted and also installed new properly sealed gutters to protect the fascia boards. New gutters were installed on the stucco addition with the focus on re-sloping the gutters to have more efficient water flow to downspouts and adding a downspout in a corner of the home that was getting extensive water flow from the roof. Finally Lime ripped out every floorboard that was rotted on the deck and coated it with premium solid stain. The board total on this house came out to 170! This home found what it needed in Lime, a full service coatings company that could restore damaged substrates and repair the source that would create the damage, gutters.
