So I am fixing the hinges on my trillium
and the wood under the hinges has been butchered by someone prior to me. They drilled out the holes and installed plastic drywall anchors. By doing this they left gaping holes for the water to get in and rot out the wood. It is swelling and busting the fiberglass at the bottom hinge
So question 1: can you get at the wood at the hinge like the windows
I know that others have drilled out the hinge holes and installed wood glue/epoxy and tooth picks to build up the bad section and then redrill. But if my wood looks like anything like the wood around windows
then it is so rotten that it will look like a pile of black rotten straw on the floor.
Question 2: Has anybody come across thsi scenario and how did they fix it?
any comments are highly welcome
