RE: Epoxy for Wood Repair

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Go to . I’ve specified their products for the repair to the base of wood columns in a Post and Beam building. The base of the columns were severely damaged with dry rot and the columns would have had to be replaced. Abatron was in the Kenosha Wisconsin area and I specified their product about ten years ago. The repair work was done to the columns – removing the lose material and then building out on the columns. The Epoxy materials bonded well with the wood and after being sanded, primed and painted it was virtually impossible to identify the original damaged columns.

I have a need for it on my own home where I have some dry rot on wood casement windows that has rotted through the window sill on the outside probably due to the sprinkler system under the tree adjacent to the window.

Check out the site. They have examples of how to use the products from column repairs to creating molds for new wall mounted plaster casts that were created using the Abatron products to create a form.

I have never used it but I hear carpenters swear by Gorilla Glue.
