I had some dirt coming from under baseboards in my mudroom. I removed baseboards to find out that the bottom of the wall is rotting and the dirt is coming from outside. The root of the problem required partial disassemble of the deck as it was covering the outside of walls. I called Cyrilca Renovations for help. Kevin disassmble the deck and showed me water damage along the bottom of the exterior wall. likely from years of accumulating rainwater due to inadequate gutters. I comissioned Kevin to do the following:
1) Remove siding
2) Replace rotten parts of the exterior wall
3) Replace insulation (Kevin suggested sprayfoam as it doubles as a vapour barrier)
4) Reinstall siding
5) Rebuild removed part of the deck.
The job was completed as asked, and it seems a good job as I don't see any more dirt coming inside, and mold stopped appearing inside where there were rotten parts in the wall. Thanks Kevin and team!
