Why do these things ever need to be replaced or looked at?
The answer is water and moisture or extreme dryness, which is less common.
When a home doesn't have the appropriate gutters & downspouts system, or even a downgrade of land towards the house that will usually cause a problem because the foundational wall will have water penetration which will make excessive humidity under the home and cause the breakdown of the wood and with the help of mold and bugs eating away at the wood, it loses its strength.
Another reason would be leaking pipes or condensation lines leaking under the home or insufficient flashing around the house near the windows & doors, also the water getting under the siding.
Now that you have the basic knowledge of home structures, we can have a decent conversation.
