Replace Wood in 95 year old Tudor Revival

Post by TeresaC »

We took out the stucco and plaster in my 95 year old Tudor Revival house because of leaking. We aren't sure exactly where the leaking originated but have found one entry point. My question is do these photos look like all the wood needs replacing or is it just old wood that is still sturdy?

Thank you for any info!

Probe it with a tip of a screwdriver. If a screwdriver can easily be pushed into the wood it’s rotted or dry rotted and needs to be repaired/replaced.


Good luck!
