An exterior wooden joinery (gate, gate, fence...) deteriorated by moisture, must be prepared before carrying out the repair. In order for the plaster to adhere perfectly to the wood, and to be easy to apply, it is advisable to use a special wood "hardener". Equip yourself with a triangular scraper and remove all rotten, friable parts...

Apply the hardener product

With a flat brush or a rechampir brush apply the "harden wood" until saturation. Apply the coating directly on the still fresh product. This action makes it possible to reinforce the adhesion of the coating.

Let the plaster take (about 1 hour 30 minutes) and then remove the larger imperfections with a wide cutter blade, or the side of a plaster knife. Let the plaster dry completely (3h).

Sand the plaster

Sand the plaster

Sand the surfaces with a sanding wedge to obtain an impeccable result ready to receive a paint, a stain or a varnish. For the latter, it is advisable to apply 2 coats of a darker varnish on the repair coating in order not to see any difference in hue.

Tip Toupret

Treat slots and holes, filling them copiously with plaster. With a wide spatula, even out the surface by making cross passes. Smooth the surface in the direction of the slit.
