Rescue of Rotted Storage Shed

To repair or replace? That is the question!

The days of disposable everything are a thing of the past. The environmentally conscious choice is to repair items that can be repaired instead of sending them to the land fill.

This particular storage shed was in very bad shape, but Matthew Good of Good Odd Jobs was able to remove the rotted wood and repair it, saving the homeowner time and money in the process.

In addition to the siding, we installed a new door as well as window over the door to let light inside.
