Customer Questions & Answers

Can you use screws in this after it is dry?

The wood is rotted where my Pella sashes are attached to the window opener with screws. Will this product hold the screws? If not are there other products available?
Asked by: Jimp
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 out can be cut off and sanded smooth, Will not take stain but paints very good

I have a 35 yr old log house and a few logs are getting rotten at the side near the end of the wall. Will this work?

Asked by: Sally
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

exterior door to patio bottom edge has gotten wet & began rotting away,

what's best way to fill & repair?
Asked by: Triy
Petrifier must have dry wood to absorb--PC Terminator can be used in wet applications

Does this kill any bugs that may be trying to get in the wood, or prevent them from getting in?

Asked by: gmg
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

16-oz. PC-Petrifier Wood Hardener is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 41.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked perfectly and so easy to apply We are senior citizens and novices at "do it yourself" projects. We read multiple reviews about this product and gave it a try. We removed all loose rotted wood from the bottom of the cedar posts we were repairing and then added the pc petrifier. We used a spray bottle with an opening large enough to spray out the liquid petrifier to all affected areas. After the areas hardened, we did a bit of a touch up on a few small places that were still a tiny bit soft. Wood hardened exactly as directions indicated. After that, we applied the PC Woody (after reading all the product reviews and recommendations for that product as well). We followed many suggestions from the reviews we read and the project came out great. PC products are costly but worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product This is very easy to use and does an excellent job of hardening wood. I used it on a vertical surface, so poured the product into a spray bottle. I checked it the next day and was a very pleased ... did what was promised. I would definitely purchase this again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well Worth the money I had several windows with small rotten corners, about 1 to 2 inches square. This product did exactly as it said. It went on wet, soaked in, and the soft wood areas were hard the next day. I filled in the other areas with the epoxy wood filler produce sold on HD online and saved a lot of money by not needing to replace the windows. I would highly recommend and would use again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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..
