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

Answer: 
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: 
No, you need to buy a log end sealer, I use a product available through clover dale paint, it is like a wax product, Typically only the end grain needs to be sealed as that is where the cracking starts from, the farther your pieces are away from the centre heartwood, the better chance you will have of no or limited splitting

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 34 reviewers.
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
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. August 4, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worked as advertised Was used to "petrify" rotting wood on an overhead sloping surface, so did drip a little. Easy to transfer to a spray bottle. Penetrated well (made a few small holes as suggested). After 2 coats, wood was very hard. Would use again if ever needed. Out of view, so no concern with looks: made the wood darker. June 16, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very good product The product performed well. It did what it was suffosed to. I was hapy with its performance. June 30, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by easy to use Used this to stabilize area after dug out dry rot, and before filling cavity with PCWoody-epoxy paste. June 26, 2015
