Replacing a 6x6 post and 6x10 beam on an exterior overhang due to termite and dry rot damage. I demonstrate by explaining and completing the repairs.
The front door of my home had a spot in the frame where there was severe rot that compromised the structural integrity of the frame and caused the bolt to lock poorly. I replaced the rotten section with new wood. The bolt now locks correctly. The whole job took about 3 hours.
Critical and excessive dry rot was found in the support columns and structural components of an inclosed porch. This do it yourself video shows how anyone can repair the damage and restore the porch using common tools and the end rot product.

This video is part 1 of a two-part series where I demonstrate how I replaced a load-bearing post and modified the concrete supporting pier to help prevent future wood rot. The demonstration is an amateur effort, published for entertainment purposes only. It serves as a good example regarding why it is unwise to bury any wood foundation below or even near ground level. Before doing any home renovations, be sure you have read and understood your risk and responsibility. Specifically you need to understand whether your local building code requires a building permit, and you should inquire from local building inspection services whether additional work is required. Any misadventure you encounter if you decide to repair your home is your responsibility.
