I’m focusing on rehabbing my upstairs windows. It’s been off a two story ladder. Not fun. Now I’m on the porch roof and I’m rebuilding/rehabbing a major screw up. ( Not mine…LOL!)
I’m leaving the inside alone but closing off and insulating the outside, with a new double glazed window, framing and insulation.
My question is: Some of the old wood is a little punky after I removed 40 years of paint. The old sill is just above the porch roof. It’s staying but needs some treating to take it beyond my lifetime. LOL! No rot but it’s old. I was going to use linseed oil and mineral spirits, but Googling has suggested problems in drying times and future complications as I will be painting over it.
I just found two different products that are proposed to fix this situation
1. Minwax High Performance wood Hardener
Looking for your experience and ways you LJ’s might have tackled this?
