Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rain28 Awesome purchase!!
I used this kit when refinishing an old picnic table that was in the family for over 30 years. While sanding the top I found an area where the wood was splitting and soft. I did a lot of searching on You Tube to figure out what to do and how to fix it. I had put so much time and effort into this table and didn't want this to ruin the project. I typed in "fix rotten wood" and watched "This Old House" and others fixing window sills and front porch posts where water had damaged and rotted the wood. Then I typed in "rotten wood fix" or something on that order and this kit came up from Home Depot. It was perfect for what I was doing. I didn't want to buy quarts or gallons of anything because it was only a small area. Everything you need is in this kit and easy to follow instructions. I "repaired" the small area and you can't tell after painting. If I can do it, anyone can. I painted the table with the Behrs Weatherproofing solid stain in "white" for decks. It looks fantastic!!

Used to repair rotted outside wood on a sliding glass door. Directions are simple. Thicker would be nice as the door was vertical but then it would be very difficult to mix. Used second application to get things basically smooth. Sanded two days later and painted. I will be able to see the patch but it is unnoticed by others. Also used it to fill two screw holes that were too big for the screws. Re drilled and now the screws are in tight like new. Thought the hardening agent for left rotted wood most interesting. Everything looks good but it has only been one month.

The repair kit was easy to use and worked well in filling in where wood had rotted away. After sanding and painting, it completely blends in.

I have a front entry door with side lights that had rotted underneath the glass of the side lights. It started rotting in 2007 & I thought I was going to have to replace the whole entry system until I found this product. I ordered two of these kits so that I would have enough materials. I followed the directions and got rid of as much rot as possible, then used this kit to essentially rebuild the bottom area under the glass that was so badly rotten. I let it cure overnight then sanded & repainted everything. I am amazed at how great it worked. It looks like a brand new entry system, very strong, durable and it saved me a ton of money in not having to replace everything. I def recommend this product! Looks awesome!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tbd Good product
Product was good. A little like peanut butter to spread. Would be better if it was more like frosting. Had to use a little more on second day to fill in a few low spots but it hardens like a rock and did a great job on my rotting window. Would buy more if needed.

I'm using this to fix up some old and damaged decorative corbels and it's exactly what I needed. The products are very low odor, but definitely wear gloves (staining, some skin irritation). The petrifier does a good job penetrating and hardening rotted wood (not for structural support repairs--they have other products for that). The wood epoxy is easy to mix and apply. I haven't used the "lumber" they included, yet. There is a good amount of each product. My only complaint is having to buy this online--I don't understand why Home Depit doesn't carry this in the stores.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dave Worked great for window restoration
The original windows in my historic home had dry rot along the bottom edge and around some nail heads. The petrifier solution worked great to harden the wood. Then the Woody worked well to fill in the missing wood.
Hints: Warm up the woody mixture and it is a little easier to work with. I used a hair dryer. The warmer the day the faster the mixtures cure. Windows look as good as new now!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by billjd Product worked as advertised
Used all 3 components of the kit: stabilizer, 2-part epoxy, and epoxy stick on a window and window sill that were badly rotted (as deeply as 3"). The product worked well and sanded to a nice finish when dry. The 2-part epoxy is a bit like peanut butter; has a tendency to stick to tools but also sticks well to the wood being filled. Will not doubt choose to use it again.
