One of the many types of home repair we do is beam repair. It could be a deck beam, a floor beam, or in this case a roof beam. This customer basically had two options, either replace about six beams that extended from the center of his house to the outside, or repair the ends that were rotten. He decided to repair the ends to save some money. The pictures you see here are before the house was painted. You can see where we cut out the rot and replaced it with fresh cedar. We went with cedar because it lasts the longest in an outdoor environment and had very little weight on it in this situation.
