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.
This shed is in bad shape! Not only is the siding rotting, but some of the trim and the support beams are deteriorating too.
Here's the upper corner; it's been crumbling away for some time now.
The lower right corner has sufferend not only from the weather, but critters chewing their way in as well.
The front is nearly completely removed here, exposing the rotted framing.
Here's a closeup of the rotted framing. Good Odd Jobs will make it right!
We completed replaced some of the framing, and spliced in repairs for others.
Next, it was time to replace the siding.
Another picture of the siding replacement; this shot demonstrates that the other sides of the shed weren't in such bad shape, making repair a better choice than replacement.
In addition to the siding, we installed a new door as well as window over the door to let light inside.
By the time we were done, you couldn't tell it had been falling apart.
