    I don't think so, as long as you allow the product to completely dry before apply your epoxy product. You may want to check with the manufacturer of the epoxy you are using and/or the manufacturer of Bora-Care.

  4. 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.
