Answer: 
I would not recommend putting screws into the wood with this product, what I have used in areas where u need to get good support for screws, is force gorilla glue(expanding foam glue) into the hole, then forceas many wet toothpicks into the screw hole as possible, the water helps the glue expand, and when it cures it will be as strong if not stronger then the original wood, any of the foam that expands Read More

Answer: 
No, if the wood has dry rot, the damaged area needs to be dug out, then apply screws if needed (depending on depth of damage) just below the surface. Now, you can use this product to harden the wood prior to filling it in with either epoxy or bondo.

Answer: 
It will work, but only as deep into the log as it will absorb, probably slightly more than the surface, is it the end of the logs or the outside surface of the log

I have used gorilla glue, the expanding foam type in an instance such as this, if you can force the glue in with a toothpick or something similar, The area can be a little moist as that type of glue uses moisture as a catalyst. The more glue you can force into the crevices the better, As it cures it will expand many times and fill up crevices and cracks, let it dry for a couple of days and then using a Read More
I have used gorilla glue, the expanding foam type in an instance such as this, if you can force the glue in with a toothpick or something similar, The area can be a little moist as that type of glue uses moisture as a catalyst. The more glue you can force into the crevices the better, As it cures it will expand many times and fill up crevices and cracks, let it dry for a couple of days and then using a sharp utility knife, you can trim it flush, there will be small voids, etc and that can be filled with a type of wood filler, sanded and painted,
As with any repair without actually cutting out damaged wood replacing with new wood, you are doing a temporary repair, temporary in this case is probably several years as long as the source of the moisture problem has been repaired Read Less

Answer: 
Don't think it would have any effect on bugs in the wood, if that is a concern, I would spray the wood with a product that is designed to kill insects probably twice a couple of days apart and then use the pic petrifier after, I don't think it would be a problem with bugs trying to get in after as the wood surface will be quite hard

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 38 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ordinary wood turns into HardiePlanks I used this on an old bay window that had collected rot and water damage over the years prior to us buying the home. I removed all the rot and drilled in some holes along the window sill and cleaned it with brush and shop vac. I applied it liberally along the window sill and waited the 24 hour period. My wife was amazed that it could save what she thought was a gonner. We also used the wood putty epoxy paste that is recommended with it. The wood was scraping off with just your thumb nail, now it is as strong as any hard wood. I have now done all of my wood window sills(5 of them) and refinished them. It makes old ordinary wood turn into HardiePlanks! October 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Absorptive PC are the best dry rot products I 've found--Petrifier is thin and has good absorption when filled resin products don't disperse enough to harden disperse rot--Superior to Elmers---Water based hardener can be sprayed easily which is very helpful--Multiple applications create a hard rot--But wood must be dry for maximum dispersion.. October 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best Wood Healer Ever Easy instructions. Simple to apply. Made our project turn out beautiful. Kept our wood from cracking just as recommended! October 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Does the job Did a very good job of converting wood rot in an exterior beam to hard wood. Inexpensive, easy to use and a life saver.. October 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 16-oz PC Wood Petrifier I am using this product to harden magazine and newspaper beads. The liquid penetrates into the paper layers, "expels" the air in form of big bubbles and makes the beads hard like stone. thanks Anneliese February 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worth it!!! Excellent product. It works. I have a front porch that was neglected by the last owner. I had to fix it on the fly for the insurance company. Works as stated. Great product for price. Wish HD had the epoxy to go with the petrifier July 30, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by mixed results sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. It is probably due to the condition of the wood but I am not able to predict when it will work and when it won't. June 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ideal for use with dead wood on Bonsai Trees Works outstandingly well to preserve dead wood on Bonsai trees. Highly recommended! May 28, 2011
