I don't work outside a lot and don't really have a lot of selective rot remediation experience. Looking to poll the audience before I start my attack tomorrow.
1. Best recipe for cleaning/fighting mold?
The actual answer is "call a roofer to fix the improperly pitched flat roof drains". While that's en route, what's your mix for cleaning up a surface before finishing?
2. Bondo. How thick a gob of this stuff can I apply before it gets into "replace the whole piece" range? I've used it before to repair some corbels to great success, but those were pretty superficial wounds and I didn't need any more than 1/8" to 1/4" of the stuff to get back to even.
On this one I've got some pretty significant portions of rot along the bottom rails of some casement window sashes. I'd be looking at going almost 1/2" deep into the pieces before all the rot was taken care of. What say you?
3. Casement sash repair. Got a bedroom with custom Marvin casements 14" wide, many many feet high. Minimum replacement cost is 1k per window.
Bottom rail is almost completely gone, and the sill will have to be replaced too. Anyone ever replace rails on a casement to any degree of success? I've never tried but it seems like it would easily end up taking 1k worth of my time to attempt to repair, unless somebody knows something I don't.
Sounds like I should probably call a carpenter or something, huh?[/QUOTE]

Yes, please call a carpenter.
