Step By Step Epoxy Wood Repair
Do you have rotten wood on your home or commercial business? Many veterans in construction and the repair realm know that rotten or damaged wood can be repaired by using polyester or epoxy resin wood filler. Epoxy wood fillers represent a wide range of benefits. They are easy to work with, and can be formed to any profile where wood repair is needed. Epoxy wood filler can be painted and will not rot again, allowing for a rock solid wood repair.
How can I repair rotten wood?
The harsh / rainy weather here in Jacksonville Florida wreaks chaos on exterior wood. Repairing wood with polyester or epoxy filler can be done in three simple steps;
Apply the wood hardener: Remove wood rot with a sharp tool, spray the affected area with bleach to kill the WDO (wood destroying organism). Mix your wood epoxy and insert or apply to the decayed area. Create a profile with the epoxy material and press it into the recess with a knife as you smooth.
Shape and smooth: Hardened parts can be removed with a chisel or sharp knife and another layer added if needed. Once the patch is hard and dry, allow it to stand for 10-15 minutes.
Smooth and repair: Sand to form and give a blending effect. Since this is a "hot patch" prime the filled area and paint to blend with the surrounding areas. Keep in mind, some rotten wood repairs require 2-3 layers of filler.
