Wood Garage Trim Replaced

The wood garage trim has been repaired on these garages for whatever reason. Try to find out why this trim has been replaced by asking the owner of the property.

Usually garage trim that is in contact with concrete will be absorbing moisture constantly and attracting termites. It is a good idea to leave at the least an 1/8" gap between the wood and the concrete to prevent this from happening. A quarter inch gap would be better.

Keep in mind that this does not mean there is termite damage to the garage.

If you notice this wood was replaced and is still touching the concrete. This is one of the reasons why I have built this website and will continue to write books to provide homeowners, contractors and handyman with more information to prevent stuff like this from happening in the future.
