Why replace when you can restore? Rot is a fungus and it can spread quickly, infecting, and then destroying sound wood in its path. Replacement can be expensive or time consuming and sometimes nearly impossible. Cutting out the rotten areas may not remove all of the "infected" wood which will continue to rot.
There is a better way: The EndRot system, for Complete Wood Repair and Restoration. With The EndRot system, you can:
The EndRot Trial Kit contains enough material to complete a typical repair to a window or door severely damaged by rot, weather, and sun.
The EndRot System is a group of products developed for use in the repair of architectural wood components that have been damaged by rot fungus, insects, extreme weathering and abuse. Each product in the EndRot System can be used separately. When used together they are a complete and permanent solution for repairing damaged wood. When repaired with the EndRot System, wood is as good as new, ready to prime and paint.
Excavate Punky Wood / Apply EndRot Borate Powder
Typically, rotted wood contains a significant amount of moisture. Removing the punky, rotted wood is an essential first step in the process.
In addition to removing unsound wood, it's also important to address the underlying problem. Treat the wood with EndRot Borate Powder to kill fungus and destroy the wood as a food source for insects.
Apply RotFix Penetrating Epoxy
Apply RotFix penetrating epoxy within 5-10 minutes of mixing in order to seal the wood.
Brush a generous coat of RotFix over the affected area. Some wood substrates are very porous and will absorb the RotFix rapidly. A second coat may be necessary. More epoxy can be applied over wet or tacky RotFix.
Apply SculpWood Putty / SculpWood Max Putty / Sculpwood Paste
Now it's time to replace the rotten wood that we removed. From small cracks to large voids, and from cosmetic to structural repairs, the SculpWood family of products has you covered.
With easy 1:1 mix ratios, simply mix up an appropriate amount of putty or paste to slightly overfill the area before coming back the next day to sand, prime, and paint. Good as new!
