Wood Window Restoration Services in Salem, Oregon
In some applications it is more practical and cost-effective to restore sections of wood than it is to replace. This is performed by a series of steps consisting of making new sections of wood to replace what is missing or severely rotted. this is performed by splicing sections of wood and epoxies for adhesion. Wood restoration is primarily performed on window jambs that are encased in concrete or masonry buildings. This is due to the difficulty or inability to remove the jamb from the wall opening to replace an entire sill section. In the comparison of time, slicing new sections of windows is far more cost effective than a removal, replace and repair surrounding approach.
This particular wood restoration was performed on a ground floor basement window sill on the Cottage Grove Armory. Over time the window sill had rotted away to a very far extent. The practical method was to choose wood restoration due to the window being encased in concrete. The rotted sill section was cut out to good wood and a replacement section was spliced into position. Once painted the small seam was unrecognizable due to the strategic placement.
