Wood Repair

Epoxy Restoration specializes in Wood Repair to restore the structural integrity as well as the aesthetics of wood structures. We repair all types of wood structures including homes, churches, schools, commercial and government buildings. Below are examples of successfully repaired Hawaii structures, with the following types of damage.

◊ Rot Repair – includes dry rot and normal weathering. We can inject the rot with a high strength super penetrating epoxy resin which solidifies rotted sections to a super strong epoxy impregnated wood. In severe cases where sections have disintegrated we will cut out remaining rotted surfaces. We will then install steel anchors if necessary, then mold and fill voids with our high strength resins to form a fully restored member.

◊ Termite Repair – including drywood and the severe damage caused by ground (Formosan) termites. Drywood termites usually leave shallow damage which is readily repaired by removing deleterious sections of wood and filling with our super high strength, fiber reinforced polyester (6,000 psi compressive strength) paste patching material. Deep damage is repaired by sealing off the wood surface, drilling port holes and injecting the wood with our EZ Resin super strength (2,800 psi compressive strength) injection resin. The resin has the ability to fill all the voids left by termites and hardens to a strong fill that bonds to the surrounding wood.
