I've had the pleasure of trading with this company. A very pleasant experience. No problems. Cheap and fast shipping. Being put on my favorite list. Thank you very much for good communication and a pleasant trade. I hope to do business with you again.
The only problem with CPES is that it is so versatile that I keep finding new uses for it and have to buy more!! Seriously, I wish I had discovered this product years ago. It has so many uses and works so well that it pays for itself over and over again. Use it before painting outside wooden furniture and forget the annual repaint. My old garden seat was treated last year and it still looks as good as new. I thoroughly recommend it.
Very effective and long lasting repairs in a variety of applications.
Excellent product, fantastic service. Will use it again.
Sept 2021: Used in the repair of sash window's and sills.
Absolutely superb product to use, straightforward to apply, easy to sand and overcoated with oil based paints very well, its not cheap, but I’m very pleased with the results.
Due to a leaking sink tap the wood floor of my touring caravan and surrounding wood frame, rotted. I was quoted £900 but using Smiths CPES I managed to save the frame and the floor of the cupboard. The CPES melted the foam insulation under the floor but I was able to inject new fire proof foam into the cavity. The final result is strong and totally undetectable. I am very pleased as it has cost me around £150 thereby saving me £750 and I have about half of the CPES left which I shall use on my wooden garden shed.
First time I've used it but it seems to do what it says on the tin, an excellent product and great service from the supplier. It's just a little bit on the expensive side, I suppose its because ti's come from the US. cheers Keith.
A1 service! Saved me a lot of money just replacing the seals. They kept me well informed on my order and the fitting instructions are brilliant. I will definitely be recommending you guys. Many thanks.
I had a 100 year old wooden garden seat belonging to my grandparents which had rotted to pieces. With the help of the products supplied by Makewoodgood I now have a garden seat that looks as if it had just been bought!
This could not have happened without their products nor their invaluable help when I needed it. I wish I could add a photo of it now. It looks fantastic!
Well, what can I say, fabulous service, very helpful on the phone and I found the products relatively straight forward to use. They certainly seem to do what they say on the tin!
Thank you again.
Great service, parts fit perfectly. I recommend!
First, the company - excellent service and advice. Very quick delivery time even in lockdown!
Second, the products - amazing! The CPES really soaks into the wood (pine in my case). I am restoring a pine garden seat that is 100 years old and has seen better days. Restoring it would be impossible without these products.
They are a life saver (and a seat saver!)
Excellent service, excellent product will purchase again in the future
Found this on a Google search, rang the company for advise and ordered some to repair a plywood ramp on my box trailer. CPES is even better than I hoped it was, the plywood is now rock hard and reusable. It was easy to use but work in a ventilated space as the solvent is quite strong.
Excellent service. Email queries answered promptly. Happy with my purchase of CPES which turns decayed wood into something like a coating of non-rotting ‘plastic’ has to be good.
I bought both CPES and Layup and Laminating Epoxy. Both products work really well and have allowed me to fix up my rotting workskshop.
The service was excellent. I had some problems which were solved quickly with a quick email to MakeWoodGood
Originally ordered in 2017, but took so long to arrive (posted via Belgium due to postage regulations on CPES - so went via 3 different postal systems instead of one and took over a month to arrive) I had to make other repairs.
Finally was able to use the kit CPES and small (12 oz) filler. Also ordered 2 pt filler.
Used it to restore several well rotted sash windows, both sashs and the sills, first removed all the old filler I'd had to use previously, then used CPES to strengthen remaining timber forming remains of tenon joints, put in dowls and replaced all the missing timber using Smiths Fill-it Epoxy filler working into all the joints, old bolt holes (had used metal plates to hold joints together), dowls and voids, on the stiles and rail at bottom of each sash. Also used both to rebuild the bottom corners of the sash frames.
Finally painted the frames and sashs white as they live in south facing positions and are subject to very strong and hot sunshine often reaching well over 40 deg C.
Still have quite a lot CPES and Fill-it Epoxy left and still have 5 more windows in varying states of repair to attend to.
Main advantage of this system is the working life of the mixed products, (an hour plus against 5' for other products).
In order to accurately mix products I use some medical measures for the CPES to mix between 10 - 30 ml of each, and a set of scales which measure up to 200 grams by 0.01 grams, for the Fill-it Epoxy.
Made up a table using a spread sheet to calculate required weights of component B relative to component A ranging from 2.5 grams to 50 grams by 2.5 steps, so easy to mix relevant amounts according to the job in hand.
Use a small double ended metal scraper to both extract fill-it, mix it, and then fill holes. Using an old piece of plastic sheet cut from old icecream lid as a pallet for the mixing. Can get very accurate amounts and little waste which, considering the cost of the kit, is necessary for someone working on a budget but requiring perfect results.
Can also use the Fill-it epoxy for modeling and fixing other items other than wood so useful to have as a general purpose glue.
I found the service excellent.Order arrived swiftly. The product did not disappoint. I would highly recommend you and your product.
A very highly recommended web based company. The repair service kit (with unexpected extras of gloves and sweets) was received promptly and at competitive price. The after sales service and call back advice received from Steve was also very friendly and much appreciated and helpful to complete the project. A first class service!
I've used several wood fillers in the past but this is just the best I have ever used. With very clear instructions, one is taken through the steps required to mix and apply the sealer, and mix, apply, and shape the filler. The end result is a hard finish easily shaped and ready for painting. Drawbacks: None as yet. Disclaimers - it will take time to show how long this lasts but it could be that the current good wood will long before the filler decays. Would I recommend it: There are cheaper options around, but frankly, this is worth paying for. It is just the very best I have ever used. (Oh, and the delivery was swift and efficient as well.)
