exterior wood
 
1 Attachment(s)

Hello,

We are looking at an apartment in a building with a lot of exterior wood that is natural -- not painted or stained. That is typical in this area (Swiss Alps). In this photo you can see some discoloration that is starting after about ten years. Is this normal aging or rot that will need to be corrected? The older buildings here have wood that is almost totally black and is hundreds of years old.

Thank you for any advice!
