Jeff Kyger of Northwest Log Home Care showed us a decay issue and the resolution utilizing M-Balm and E-Wood to repair the log. While it is a handy storage space for sports equipment, the decay could have progressed deep in the wood and compromised the home. Jeff was able to repair the log decay damage with two products.
The first step in repair is to clean out the decay and get the log dry.
We recommend applying Shell-Guard RTU to the cleaned area to eliminate any decay fungi and prevent future infestation. Once the decay cavity has dried, coat the exposed wood with M-Balm to bond loose fibers and create a solid bonding area for the filler agent. M-Balm epoxy liquid penetrates deeply into porous wood, curing and hardening into a strong water-resistant mass that included the original wood fibers and the epoxy mixture.
E-Wood epoxy can be stained with Lifeline stains during mixing or after application to match your log home color.
For small voids use E-Wood Paste. E-Wood paste epoxy works excellent on window trims, small checks on log ends and other places where putty may be difficult to apply.
Regularly inspect your home for rot and stop it from spreading and causing an expensive repair. With Perma-Chink System’s wood restoration products M-Balm and E-Wood, decay can be repaired and your home restored to like-new condition.
