Subject: Mailbox Sign

Date: May 9th, 2015

Attached are photos of my thirty year old mailbox sign. I came back from an extended stay away to discover my sign has rotted so badly it was basically hollow half way down. Looking on the internet I found your products. I spoke to someone at your company by phone that recommended some particular products. They were very helpful and knowledgable.

The before photo actually is was during the first stage as I had already installed new lag hooks. I also installed 5 inch screws down into good wood to support the new material.

After removing as much rotted wood as possible I used the Clear Penetrating Epoxy* and throughly penetrated the wood. Then using the Layup Epoxy* I made a heavy paper form to hold the epoxy in the shape I desired and then layered in amounts over several days. I was able to use my Dremel Tool to reform the letters and beehive design.

Sign After repairs

What I thought would be a lost sign with family sentimental value, is now ready to hang up for many more years. I have already told several people about your products. I’m just glad I saw your Internet site.

Very Satisfied!
