' Here Are Tips On Preventing Wood Decay One of Ihe sadde.st da.y.s in I be life of a homeowner i.s the day he discovers that the sills, joists or subflooring in the home is de eayed and must be replaced. The sorrow is aggravated by Ihe di.sovery that the decay could easily have been avoided. “Wood decaying fungi prohablj cause as mui-h dama,ge to North Carolina homes as do termites, ” eom-menls Dr. Miihael I’. Levi, North Carolina .Stale University wood deterioration exi)erf. He eiled a recent survey in Kaloigli which found that “iialf the hoiux-s e.xamined bad conditions suila hie for the growth of decay fun gi.” There are effective method.s ol avoiding decay. Drj' wood will not decay, .so kei'ping it dry is o sure method of prevention. An- olher foolproof measure is the u.so of materials pre.s.sure treated Willi a preservative. The ehemi- ml acts as a poison lo the decay fungi. Here are some of Dr. Levi'.s .sug gestions for keeping untreated wood dry' and safe from decay: —Avoid earth - filled porches where soil is close to untreated wxKid. Most fungi only attack wood wiii'ch is alread.v wet, but a fungus called Boria can transport waler several feet through root- like .‘itiands. Tin- damake caused by rhis fungus is .sometimes call ed “dry rot,” even though mois- lure is reipiired for decay. —Make .sure there are no olher arr-ds where soil is in eontaet with, or close lo untreated wood. Good ventilation and drainage under the house are imporlant in keeping wood dry in a base ment le.ss house. Vents should be kept o|)en in all but the coldest weather to give cross ventilation in the crawl space. —^Direct water from the roof a- way from the house. Where water doesn’t drain away from tilio house, the foundations should be water-proofed, —Cover at lea.st 70 peroont of the crawl .space with plastic sheetin.g to stop moisture prob lems in the .subfloor area. —Keep plumbing in good re pair. —Inspect the house oneve or twice a year for signs of decay or conditions likely- to cau.se it. Signs of trouble include free water UNC-G Honors Flying Course Barbara Sipe Is Slated Page 7 GUFILNSBOKO — F’our Ga.-lon C'lmnly sludents were .iinim,g Hie J.SI) .si:i)liGm-)re.s lumored at ■< I'ial leceplion at llie I'niversily of .N'oilli Carolina al Oreen.s.bora on -Nov, Ih.
