floor rot repair

What is the best product to apply to a rotted floor. I am in the process of drying it first. Thank you much, Sallie.

Hey Sallie
Can you show us some pictures? The best way to fix it is to replace the rotted wood but if it's not too big an area you maybe able to treat it or patch it.
Pictures would help.

You may be looking for something like this
Wood preservation, rot repair, and restoration using epoxy resin on boats, homes and log homes.

This only helps solidify what's left, it won't "restore" the wood to it's original condition.

Others will have many different opinions.

There are several brands of penetrating epoxy resin including Rot Doctor. Don't just use a regular epoxy resin which will sit on top of the wood, get a product which impregnates the wood. You do have to remove the real bad rot before application. The resin will stabilize and strengthen the surrounding wood.
Sail on silver girl. Sail on by. Your time has come to shine.
