Not sure when it was I mentioned it before, but water had got into our bedroom slide and damaged the floor. There was a gap in silicone between the wall and the trim piece, about 5 inches, and it was enough to cause some rot to develop in the floor.
This is our largest repair to date, and hopefully it keeps that title for a LONG time – preferably for always!
To answer the most obvious question, “what were the symptoms?”, how did we know something was wrong? I have will show you a few pics.
As you can see when comparing – the top pic shows the floor pushing up where the floor roller sits when the slide is in. This is because the wood is rotted.
Next trim pieces were removed
This marks the end of day one. Bill worked on it for about 3 1/2 hours.
Now that the old floor is ready to remove the inside needs to be taken apart.
Someone told Bill that the water damage you find is always WAY WORSE than you think it is. By the time you find it, major damage has been done. Much easier to prevent than to repair!
