I used it on my log house and it actually made the wood feel as if it had a bulletproof shield on it. I would recommend this product to anyone having trouble with rotting wood.

I used this to protect the tops of our deck posts, hand rails and decking of the deck areas that are exposed to the weather. It does an excellent job of sealing the pores of wood. It works very well to seal areas that are beginning or are already rotting and makes the wood very hard. It is easy to apply and dries quickly. I used a total of 2 gallons of it and am very pleased with the results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product We live in a log cabin and had water damage on a section of log. We were thinking that the damaged log would have to be removed. Removal would make matching the interior impossible. With this product we were able to repair the outside section(where the rot was) while leaving the inside intact. I was absolutely thrilled with this product. It works! Made the log hard again and saved a great deal of work, money, cleanup and headache... Can't say enough to tell you how great it worked. The only recommendation I have is that you advertise... no one I know has heard about the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this stuff! I love this stuff! It stabilizes and "petrifies" badly decayed wood surfaces (after crumbling decay has been removed). It eliminates remaining "dusting" problem and thereby allows epoxy wood putty to adhere well. I wish I could find a cheaper source, but until competition drives down the price, I intend to continue buying this product. It also aids in sealing wood window frames and closing hair-line cracks in glazing compound prior to painting. I also use it where wood meets concrete or stone to provide clean, smooth, dust-free surfaces prior to sealing out water with silicone-type sealants. Try it--you'll like it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not what I need, but it still does an okay job Unfortunately Home Depot is no longer carrying the other product I was using which was nearly perfect aside from the strong smell. The very low odor is a real nice change of pace, and for the intended use, this product is nearly perfect & an excellent value in this convenient 1 gallon size. It's very thin so it can soak deeply into the wood, and it definitely hardens soft / rotted wood. Once hardened, the wood is very hard, imperfections can be filled, then the wood can be sanded & painted. However, I need a product that will solidify heavily spalted craft boards, and allow for staining & clear-coating after treatment. Being a water based product should allow for staining, especially with gel stains which even worked with the resin based product I was using. However, this is not a clear liquid, it looks like fat-free milk and discolors the wood thus changing the tone of the stains, and will even leave water stains in the wood if over-saturated & left to air-dry. None of this is a problem if you're painting after treatment Also worried about how well outdoor pieces will hold up here in Florida since it is a water based product & summer-time humidity levels frequently top 90%, not to mention the almost daily rains. Guess time will tell for that aspect. Bottom-line, I would highly recommend this for anyone needing to fortify softened/rotted wood before painting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Stuff I love this stuff, high price & all. It does exactly what it says it will do as long as the wood is not to far gone. It penetrates well, even on denser old growth wood & hardwoods and, sets up fairly quickly. When it hardens you can sand it, paint it, drill it, screw it etc. Not claimed but I think it helps water proof some as well. And, clean up is easy. There are products out there somewhat better but they're like nearly double in price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I use this product to harden the inside of weak gourds that I do art work on. I have tried other brands but they have a very strong odor and the odor hangs around for weeks. This wood hardner has no oror and works great. It really strengthens the gourds.
