    Turbo Builders bog, a renovators best friend

    Builders Bog, it’s like wood in a can!

    6/7/11 Builders Bog is ideal when filling large holes in timber like a window sill. Where you have had rot in and it’s difficult to repair use Turbo Builders bog. Builders Bog mixes with a hardener so will set quickly. You can vary the amount of mix and the proportion of each component to suit the job you are doing, but be sure to stay within the allowable range as written on the tin.
