The latest project at our place, a bathroom reno. Reno’s always produce something unexpected, this time it was dry rot at the hinge side of the bathroom door. It turns out water had been coming down the furnace B vent, and then continuing downward behind the door casing until it pooled on the floor, under the carpet, never leaving a visible trace, but causing a pocket of dry rot in the plywood floor. The floor in this area consisted of 5/8 plywood, overlain by a sub floor of 3/8 plywood. The dry rot had consumed the 3/8 plywood but had not penetrated through the 5/8 plywood. Plus the area of dry rot was located in an area that would not be subject to the weight of traffic, or any other stress for that matter. Thus I felt a non structural repair would suffice.
Because of the way the SculptWood had peeled off the plywood when I applied it with the spatula I was concerned about how well this material would adhere to the plywood. Thus, as a test, I pressed a lump of SculptWood onto a scrap of plywood and let it set. My concerns were unfounded, the lump of SculptWood could not be removed from the plywood!
All in all I was quite pleased with the way this repair went and I am confidant that the Cold Cure, plywood, SculptWood repair will last as long as the house will.
