Rim Joist and floor joists rot (pic heavy).
I pulled the deck off my house and found some rot and other problems.
Roughly how much should it cost to repair this wood damage, and how do you think should be done? This is a two story wall above.
Rotted floor joist and sill plate. This is the only rotted part of the sill plate, how long a section of sill plate should be replaced? Just under this joist or span 2 or more?
Broken joist end. Should this be sistered?
There are a couple joists that are "sunken" about 1/8" in to the sill plate. The wood still looks/feels good. I'm not sure if it was caused by moisture or if it's normal. Is this a concern?
The circles indicate rot. The line at the bottom is where the rim joist seems to have been pulled out 3/4" at the top by the old deck which was pulling away from the house. The old deck ledger was simply nailed on.
Rim joist not plumb with rest of framing:
About 1/2" gap from the joist end at the top:
Close up of water damage, notice the sub-floor does not go all the way out to be flush with sole plate and rim joist?? :
1. Get wood fixed.
2. Replace the removed foam sheathing with Huber Zip or regular OSB and tape to foam with Vycor flashing.
3. Remove doors, flash sills with Vycor, reinstall doors.
3. Apply Grace Vycor on OSB behind the new deck ledger and.
4. Attach 2x8 deck ledger with Ledgerlock screws.
5. Apply Grace deck protect over the ledger and some rigid ledger flashing on top of that.
6. Attach some cedar board where the siding was removed (old composite siding damaged beyond reuse).
This way it should be easy to reside the rest of the wall in a few years and blend it in to the deck flashing.
