Subject: A good example of how CPES can be used as a valuable adjunct in rebuilding a wooden house foundation.
Date: May 17, 2006


I wanted to take the time to pass my delight in your product.

We found some major rot in the main front floor beam in our house and it looked like we had a very expensive repair at hand. The beam would need to be removed whilst supporting existing floor and replacing with new beam.

What I hoped for was a product to stop the rot, and allow me to lay a new structure along side of the old rotten structure and significantly reducing the repair. Obviously laying a new beam against the rotten beam without treating the rot would have left me in the same situation a few years down the track if the rot was to continue. We had to cut away a significant portion of the pony wall structure as this was simply dust held in place by the mere fact no-one had touched it. You can see from the pictures we cut back until the studs were treatable, treated the ends of the studs and built a new pony wall against the old treated structure. The main floor beam was also affected at the very end and untreated would have meant the full removal of the central floor beam, (not a small job).

The CPES product was easy to use and did what you claimed it would. The soft spongy rotten area is now hard. A screwdriver would push into the surface before. Now it cannot penetrate the surface.

You have saved me a considerable amount of time and money. Great product easy ordering , quick delivery easy to use and does what it claims to.

The before and after pics are attached.

I will highly recommend to anyone who would like to know how your product works.

Many many thanks,
