Why replace when you can restore? Avoid costly replacement and ineffective wood rot repairs with the EndRot Kit from System Three Resins.
Wood restoration repairs cannot be made permanent if the wood destroying organisms are not eliminated and kept from returning. Utilizing the 4 products in the EndRot kit the wood is first treated with a preservative then the rot-damaged wood is repaired with state-of-the-art epoxies.
The EndRot Kit contains enough of each product (RotFix, Sculpwood, Impel Rods and Board Defense) to do several kinds of repairs. For example, the rotted corners of a few windows or a rotted deck footing can be permanently repaired with this kit. Larger amounts of each EndRot component can also be purchased separately.

System Three Resins, a company known for its marine adhesives and coatings, is located in the Pacific Northwest, which everyone knows is famous for its damp conditions. This can lead to moisture damage to any wood that is used outdoors. It is not surprising then that System Three Resins has developed an epoxy system to consolidate and replace wood that is rotted or deteriorated. These epoxy products, RotFix and SculpWood, are 100% non-volatile and were engineered specifically for wood restoration and repair. They provide superior performance to any polyester based system. Products like them have been used in marine applications for over 30 years. System Three Resins took these superior epoxy repair products a step further by recognizing that restoration repairs cannot be made permanent if the wood-destroying organisms aren't eliminated and kept from re-infecting the wood. For this reason System Three Resins has added a wood fungicide to the RotFix/SculpWood epoxy repair system.

Can the restored wood be painted?
Wonderful product-- we apply a bonding primer to all affected areas, then a quality topcoat. Works great.
Yes it can
Yes. I did my restoration on an exposed garage door and,after a long winter, the paint job still loks new. II used a water-based primer and exterior latex for the job.
Hello, yes, I was able to paint the restored wood with this product. It has held for a couple of years now. Be sure to prime and use proper paint (i.e. if outside, use paint/primer for that purpost
What is the life expectancy of the repair after completion?
Sorry that I cannot help you. I replaced the rotted wood rather than use the endrot kit. So, I have not used it yet.
I have only been using system three for three years. All the repairs are still intact and functioning well. I can't imagine the actual product will fail. What will fail is how well you have prepare the wood surrounding the patch.I love the product and have used it many, many times. It is easy to use and easy to sculpt. I have used it for small and very large defects. I would strongly suggest you try the product you'll be quite amazed.
how much area will this kit cover?
Sorry I'm not able to answer your question. I've not used the product yet. I replaced the area on which I was going to use it so did not have need for it.
Not to sound like a wise guy but it all depends. Mainly it depends on how deep and wide your repair is. This is good stuff which is two part light weight expoxy that sets up hard as nails, but it can be worked with normal tools. You get one container of hardner and one of filler. Each container has about a cup of material in it (or about the size of your clenched fist. So figure about two cups of filler if you mix it all at once. It has a fairly long working time and you can spread it like bondo. I have used it fix rotted door bottoms on some historical houses and it works great. One tip is to wear some nitrile gloves and mix it up with your hands. It is too stiff to mix with a putty knife. Good luck.
TOWN RIVER WOODWORKS
We have dry rot on the ends of several beams on our patio, and also on the end of one of the large header beams. We are selling the house and must make sure repairs are reasonable but acceptable to inspections. Will this product suffice in lieu of replacing the wood? Do I need anything additional to the EndRot Kit, ie penetrating epoxy, etc. Appreciate your help.
Bought it but never used it. Sorry I can't help.
I was very satisfied with the kit and product. The kit is complete and you will not have to purchase anything else. Before buying this product I researched repairs methods and this kit has the recommended materials. The other choice is to purchase individual items that will cost you over $200 and leave you with a large leftover quantity. The instructions are easy to follow and the product easy to use. I can not say if the patch will match your deck but I believe that you can add a wood stain or dye before mixing the wood filler. If the patch is very visible you might want to show the kit to the inspector. Good luck.
If needed in large quantity, for repair of dock pilings, would this be the most practical product I can find? (Git-Rot would be ideal, but SOO expensive!)
Bill, I used it to cure and replace rotted areas in a 75-year-old wooden mast. I don't think it would be cost-effective for rotted pilings. This was successful for me in the mast application. Maybe some auto-body putty (I think Jamestown has such a product) would work for a while on your pilings.Nim
Tks, Francis. Years ago I injected a lot of Git-Rot into an old Manuel-Campos built ketch and it worked wonders. Will look into your auto-body putty idea. Bill
I would recommend CPES if working in large quanity.
I have a 1942 old town canoe with minor wood rot on the bow and stern wood. What is a good way to patch them before I re varnish the canoe? will this product work , can it be stained to match the original spruce?
That's two questions. On the first, does it work? Yes, and we think quite well. We followed the directions and fixed some wood rot that had gotten into the base of some cabinets. It has worked just fine, and the problem appears solved.As to whether it can be stained, I don't know. We painted over the fixed area, and that has worked okay. The color of the filler after the fix makes me think it might work, but to be sure, you might try it out first or ask the manufacturer.
I bought the product, but I have not used it. Sorry I cannot help you.
part of my boat transom has rot. Will this correct the problem or should I have the transom replaced. And if I use your product to repair the transom will it be strong enough to safely hold the motor?
The End Rot system is a great product, however I would consider it a "non structural" fix. If the damage to your transom is exstensive I would replace it. If it is superficial and not widespread the the End Rot might be a good choice. HTH.

End Rot worked great for a mast-rot problem. I was quite surprised because I think it was created for house repairs (not sure of this). I was restoring as 75-year-old catboat, and the mast had a big section of rot near where the headstay was attached. Following the directions, I cut away the rot, drilled for the fungicide capsules, "painted" with the resin and hardener, then filled the cavity with the Sculpwood, which is fun to work with and just the right color for an old varnished mast.I would use it again, and I would recommend it to anyone who had a similar rot problem to repair. Whether it works for you on such a critical structural part depends on where the rot is in respect to the fastening I would think.
Worked for me
My garage door rotted where the bottom panels meet the bottom crosspiece. The rotted area was about one-inch deep and a yard across. I followed the instuctions and rebuilt it to my satisfaction. The kit contained enough of everything I needed.
Quantities provided not well matched.
Nice packaging and instructions. Thought that the borate "rods" were missing, but finally found them. There were six, 1/4 x 1/2 "rods." More like oversize rice grains. I was trying to repair the bottom few inches of a 6x6 post, and felt these were inadequate, since the System 3 chart recommends rods 1/2 by 4, if I read it correctly. There was enough epoxy, Board defense powder and Sculpwood for the job, but not enough borate rods. A quick calculation indicates System 3 charges roughly $64 per cubic inch for the tiny pieces, compared to $6 per cubic inch for the 1/2X4 pices. Disappointed.
i would buy again
Easy to use. Sands great. Finished window loos as good as new
Complete package and just what I needed
I was very pleased with the excellent instructions and ease of use of the various components.
Perfect for my project
I used EndRot to repair a support beam on a deck. It worked just as I hoped it would. The repair was hard and sturdy. The directions were very clear and the video was very useful (and entertaining!).

EndRot for Marine Use
Instructions are aimed pretty much at house repair even though I found the product listed under "marine products"
Huntington Beach, CA
Absolutely the best
I used this product on the bottom of my front porch supports posts and my header in the garage that supports the upper level of the house. It has been over 2 years since I did this (on my own) and all looks very nice. No signs of rot coming back. I am a 48 year old woman and if I can do it, anyone can do it. If ever I see signs of rotting anywhere else, I will order more.
Middle River, MD
Absolutely teriffic product
I rebuilt the rotted bottom of a long 8X8 structural diagonal support beam (below it's support bolt, of course) using the rot kit. After completion, the repaired area was as solid as the original wood and it was almost impossible to tell there was any repair done. One whole kit was necessary, but replacing the beam would have been very expensive-at least $1500.00.
