Sill Plate Replacement
The sill plate is the bottom, horizontal piece of a window frame that is typically referred to, simply, as a sill. Sill plate replacement can be an understated necessary home improvement as they are susceptible to termite infestation and dry rot. Other parts of the home, such as the base structures like the foundation wall or crawl space, are easier to remember to have inspected and repaired, but it is important to remember the small parts that could become major issues.
Sill plates are usually made of lumber, but can be composed of any material. Timber sill plates installed in homes built prior to the 1990’s tend to be untreated and are more likely to have wood rot or termite problems. Sill plates are anchored to floors, typically bolted to the concrete subfloor or foundation wall, but sometimes they have to be installed differently based on how the house was built.
