Emergency filler for window door rot?
by: Minni posted: Monday - November 20, 2017
Hi, which foam filler is most effective, long lasting,
and least toxic for below situation? And possibly
anti-mold? 

Or must Concrobium be applied first?

My areas of concern include a rotted
doorstep/threshhold that's rotted at the corner, and
above that corner is approx. 12" of rotting doorframe.
Also approx. 24" of rot at wood windowframe on exterior
of bedroom, including a rotted gap which my finger can
hook into at left of the windowframe (behind the
asbestos-shingles).

Both the window & doorstep are on the same side of the
house, where i step out onto a patio. There's no
overhang on that side as protection. Same goes for the
opposite end of house.

I'm hoping the foam filler can serve as a long-lasting
stop-gap.

How long? I don't know. So help me when/if it
eventually crumbles, and i still haven't found a
suitable contractor.
