Product Overview

Wood rot is a common issue for most homeowner, regardless of where you live and can be easily repaired with the right products. Bondo Rotted Wood Restorer will solidify soft and spongy wood by penetrating into the wood surface to create a solid base and stop rot quickly. After removing loose or badly rotted wood, simply brush the Bondo Rotted Wood Restorer onto the damaged area with the built-in applicator brush. In only 2 hours, the product will dry to a tack-free finish that can be filled with Bondo Wood Filler to complete same day rot repairs. Many products simply coat the exterior of the surface, but Bondo Rotted Wood Restorer penetrates beyond the surface to create a solid base from within.

Simply brush onto the damaged surface and wait for it to dry to a solid surface.

Can this product be used as a wood preservative on new wood when applied to the base of door jamb...

Asked by DH June 5, 2021

Answer

Rotted wood restore soaks into fry rotten wood and gets hard. It is not going to soak into new wood. Try one of the regular wood preservatives like copper green

Hello, I can tell you from a bad experience, it should not be applied in direct sunlight, but otherwise, great question - as even the manufacturer's product support page doesn't address this question: https://www.3m.com/3M/en_US/p/d/b40069622/

Not sure, search on the home depot website. A larger can wasn't readily available in my local store

Do I have to use a filler, or seal it with paint or stain or can it be used alone?

You can use it alone, but it makes the wood darker where treated. It's easy to use, works fast and is pretty amazing.

Will this work on damp wood?

Answers

Yes however they recommend that you use a hair dryer to remove as much of the moisture as possible. Exaggerates the word and then hardens to make the word much harder.

I don’t see why not, as long as it would.

Can this be used on small rotted areas of structural wood?

Asked by Carl August 27, 2018

Answers

If the areas are small, probably. It's important to note that this is not wood filler. It's a liquid that you apply to the wood to create a hard base. You still have to use wood filler or something like bondo to build the surface of the wood back up to create the original shape.

Had a very tricky repair job where a thick vine rotted away the cedar siding. This did the trick along with the bondo wood filler. I'm a 61-year -old female and am happy with the results.

I have a post at the corner of the overhang over my front porch that had an area that was literally crumbling away. Replacing the entire post was economically impossible at the time so I decided to try and fix it. I started with this rotted wood restored. It suggested 4 to 6 coats allowing only two minutes of driving time between each coat. This definitely helps speed up the process. I went with six coats because the wood was pretty soft. After the application, I could tell it had done the job. The wood was no longer soft but was nice and firm. I would definitely recommend this product if you’re needing to make a repair to any wood that has started to rot. However, you are going to want to finish it up by using the Bondo wood filler. Especially on an exterior application.

It Works
As a remodeler I often get asked to repair window rot. in the past I've cutout the old and replaced but a recent job had upwards of 30 windows to repair so I figured I would give this product a try. I read the reviews and followed the directions and it worked remarkably. as for the people that said they destroyed the can opening it or it was a one time use product, well, they're either lacking in ability or don't have the right tools for the job. You just have to be careful.

Surprised how well this system works. Combined with the filler, was able to make excellent repairs to minor wood rot that could be sculpted with a rasp so the repairs were invisible after painting.
