Why Does This Happen?
Rotted wood in your basement nearly always happens because of direct contact with water. There could be a leak through a window or crack in the wall, or water could be coming through your wall and pooling or dripping on the wood. Moisture could also be inside the wood itself.
This happens because too much water is finding its way into your walls, and into your basement. There are a number of reasons that this can occur. There might be a leak directly on the wood, or your basement could be really damp and humid, and be promoting the growth of mold and dry rot that can damage the inside of your home.
Whatever the case, it is important to find a solution.
