Ridding the Rotted Wood Around Your Windows
In the remodeling industry, window replacement is big, big business. Damaged or rotted wood sills and frames prompt consumers to consider spending $5,000, $10,000, $15,000 and more in replacement costs.
This is because most folks don’t realize that rotted wood frames can be repaired. A two-phase, two-part epoxy repair kit is needed. Scoop out the soft, rotted wood, mix the two part liquid that makes up phase one and apply it to the affected area as a weather seal and bonding coat. Next, use the two-part putty that makes up phase two to fill the hole.
The finished product can be planed or sanded just like wood. Use an oil primer and an oil- or latex-finish coat to make the frame look new again.
