I was recently restoring some older doors and windows and needed a good epoxy solution to address some pretty bad wood degradation. My trusty local paint supply store recommended a product called Flex-Tec. It comes in a beefy, dual tube caulking gun setup that the Terminator might carry if he were into wood restoration. Since that was a lot more product than I needed, I opted for the less manly mini-tube that fits into a normal caulking gun. The product is easy to mix and creates a very solid bond. It’s thick enough you can apply it upside down and it won’t run, and it’s easy to tool to pretty much any profile. After sanding and painting, you are left with what looks like sound and healthy wood. Great stuff! Say “Hasta La Vista” to decayed wood with Flex-Tec. Available from select dealers, or direct from Advanced Repair Technology starting at about $27 for the Mini version.
About Marc Lyman
Marc grew up under a brave single mom who "encouraged" home improvement on the family home. Early toddler gifts included a tool set, and even a cordless Bosch drill when cordless drills first came out. In grade school (give or take a few years), Marc's mom said, "We need to cut down some trees. . . . here's a chainsaw." A father figure also involved Marc in many home improvement projects, including a summer of home remodeling in Palo Alto, CA. Toss in some Obsessive Compulsive personality traits researching everything home improvement related. The end result: a genetically pre-disposed, socially sculpted home improvement machine!
