How do I repair the rotten wood on my deck

Once you have dry rot in a deck it is very hard to stop completely. It is a fungus, and spreads tendrils in the wood grain. Repairs have to involve chopping away all the rot to sound wood, and then treating it. Simply painting it with something s ineffective.

There are many commercial fungicides, all poisonous, so take care. A popular DIY treatment is a mixture of glycol (concentrated auto antifreeze) and borax, with a bit of liquid soap.

There is usually a lot more rot than meets the eye, often in the joists and bearers. The strength of the decking can then be compromised, and if concerned, ask a builder.

You are often best off just ripping out the whole lot, and replacing it with preservative treated timber which will never get the same problem.

Does uncovered firewood stored outside go bad?

Sounds like someone cut down some trees and stacked them in your yard. Most likely, it is good firewood. Actually, covered wood rots faster than air exposed wood because of lack of venting or direct exposure to the sun which dries up exposed wood. Covered wood stays wet longer which accelerates rotting. Thick round logs are hard to burn because they are not split. If you feel up to it, you can split them and burn them in your fireplace. Good healthy exercise!. If not, then Crags list would be my choice also.

Dryer vent goes thru anuninsulated outside wall causing the outside wood to rot. what do I need to do to correct this problem?

You need to remove the vent and replace/repair the rotted section. Paint the repair w/ a good quality exterior paint. When replacing the vent, be sure to caulk around the flange to prevent water from entering and causing more rot.

What is better to buy; a wood or plastic picnic table?

It really dependswho you ask, but I think plastic is longer lasting that wood when it comes to picnictables. Many plastic tables are treated with molded in color and wont splinter,stain or rot like wood can.

How do you fix a soft closing toilet seat where one hinge has become loose, one side has become detatched

Sorry there is no fixing one. the reason the hinge probably came loose is the wood has cracked and/or the wood got wet and rotted and the screws won't stay tightened. Go to Walmart and get you a new seat.
