DIY skills Stopping the rot in timber

Line up 10 people and ask for a solution to wood decay… and there will be 10 answers to the problem. The answer is simple… and the proof is millions of years old. 

Examine a piece of petrified wood encapsulated in natural resin and you can see that the dimensional stability is exactly the same as it was when embedded, all those eons ago. This dispels the false notion that wood needs to ‘breath.’

The answer is to completely seal the wood, so that there are no ‘backdoor’ opportunities for water to start the rot. We call this treatment Norseal, an epoxy wood treatment.
