Exterior Wood Rot

So, I had a lot of wood rot, as you can see from this picture:

Wood RotThat picture was many months before it got so bad that woodpeckers were making holes all the way through the wood and deep, past the insulation.  So, I had to do something.

I first started with placing plastic owls there, but I realized that wasn’t a good long term approach.  So, I repaired the wood, and put some metal flashing over some areas that will need further repair.  I painted everything the same color as the house, so it looks pretty OK for a temporary solution.  Eventually I plan to replace these single pane windows, and I will probably make all my siding repairs at the same time.
