Repairing rot on porch beams for Arts and Crafts historic preservation
I'm trying to keep the integrity of the end of the beams on the porch, which really were meant for a So. Calif. 1914 design, not the Pacific NW. Is there anything else out there besides an epoxy fix, or capping with some copper, to keep these viable? I dug out some rot apprx 2 yrs ago and put the epoxy on, the photo shows how much that has degraded. I need to try and keep the proportions as close to original as possible for historic purposes, and not zing off some of the ends if I don't have to. These beams are structural to the porch roof. Thanks for any ideas!
