Customer Questions & Answers

    My big wood deck has no roof over it. Summer is coming and it is very dry, so I would normally put an oil on it to rehydrate it, or perhaps a stain to protect it from UV. But in the winter it is very rainy, so two years ago I applied Bora-Care. 1- how often should one apply bora-care to prevent rot? 2- I don't blieve bora-care re-hydrates, so what would you suggest I do, and in what order? Thanks!

    Bora-Care is a solution to protect against wood destroying organisms. It is not a rehydrating type product for wood. We do not have a product for that particular type of application.

    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.

    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.

    Bora-Care should be applied prior to application of the LiquidWood and WoodEpox. Be sure to allow the Bora-Care to dry completely prior to applying LiquidWood and WoodEpox.
