Customer Questions & Answers

  1. Q Looking for a coating to maintain 140 sq ft on a “below-grade-type PT” plywood Sidewalk on a tar-paper and sand bed. Will LiquidWood offer a moisture resistant barrier if applied as a skim-coat to the full-year seasoned PT plywood? With the correct bond does LiquidWood have elasticity suited for light foot traffic ? There are a few larger gaps at the plywood joints that I would like to fill and sand as well (up to 1” wide by 3/16” deep).
    Answered by the admin

    LiquidWood should not be used in that manner. It's a consolidant for rotted, soft spongy wood. It is not a protective coating. If you use it as you describe, it will remain on the surface and remain tacky. You can use WoodEpox to fill gaps.

  3. Q I have 150 year old cedar siding which appears to be in bad shape and doesn't want to hold paint past one year. Is BoraCare the product to treat it with or is Liquid Wood?
    Answered by the admin

    BoraCare is a product used to penetrates deep into the wood to pride long-lasting protection against termites, wood destroying beetles and decay fungi. LiquidWood is a consolidant for rotted, soft, spongy wood. I do not believe either one of them is what you are looking for, unless you need to address on of those problems. We do have an expoxy primer call PrimKote 8006-1 that may be helpful to you. Please contact our technical department at 800-445-1754.

  4. Q I have a tree stump that I'm looking to turn into a support for a clear table top. It is oak and about 32" in diameter. Would your products help to prevent the stump from rotting and/or splitting?
    Answered by the admin

    You can use our LiquidWood on any dry rotted wood to consolidate it and make it hard again. It is not a protectorant or sealant type product.

  5. Q Restoring 80-year old windows with doublehung counterweighted wood sashes. Most rails, stiles, & muntins in good shape; all of interior casings good, some dark, soft wood on lower exterior casings. Stripping all paint from wood, wish to apply natural finish to interior, paint exterior. reglaze all panes. What products do you suggest?
    Answered by the admin

    You can use our LiquidWood and WoodEpox to restore the windows and either the Sarco Dual Glaze (exterior use) or the Sarco Type M Glazing Compound (interior use) to reglaze the windows.
