Used by the previous house owners, I believe it's called "structural bog". I'm amazed more houses aren't built with it.

 

 

 

 

And as a bonus, the bog song.

Bog is useful when a tenant punches a hole in a door, you bog it , sand it and paint it.

It appears that the bog is still intact and the structure has given way. It's a fine product. The pink stuff which is just rebranded automotive bog is best bog.

They'd used it to patch over rotten timber, and I do mean literally patch over, so the rot had continued around the edges and underneath. I just picked chunks of it out of the rot with a large screwdriver.

This was one of the less rotted parts that had been bogged up...

 

 

 

 

In other areas there was almost nothing left of the surrounding wood. Cowboys, I tell ya...

Why didn't you just pick out the rotten wood and fill the cavity with bog?

Ahh, so it was a window surround,

 

well then... it was probably not even "structural bog" it might have been the more commonly used "cosmetic bog"

 

- you have got to watch those cowboys  they will always take the easiest option and using cheaper grade non structural bog is one of the biggies :)

In the bad old days the local timber yard would give me a can of the CCA Tanalising fluid. That stopped any rot that you might have missed. The other answer that worked was the boaties fall back, a 2 part resin that was thin enough to soak into any soft wood before setting.

Ah, it looks like that window sill has had a dulux overhaul.

 

Some (simpler) people see the symptom as the problem, and are not the slightest bit concerned with the cause or the imminent reoccurrence yell

 

The painters doing my house loved a 2 part resin that would solve all the window sill problems because "it lasts for 20 years".

 

I followed it up by repairing the window rubbers to solve the leak.

On some of the older alu windows the reveals were untreated timber and the side in contact with the window wasn't sealed.  When the inevitable condensation occurred the timber absorbed water and rot started.

 

I have seen a bathroom window on an internal wall where the reveal was MDF.  Go figure.

I've treated it to several good soakings of benzalkonium chloride (BZK), a fungicide treatment, after routing out as much rot as I could, and will follow up with a mix of crosslinking PVA and BZK to stabilise any remaining rot, and finally more bog. The main thing is to rot-proof and stabilise the surrounding wood so it doesn't just rot around the bog like the last time.

1970s Universal home, I'm fairly certain it's untreated timber behind the alu. Or at least it was treated, as someone else pointed out, with Dulux. It's now soaked full of BZK which should do the trick until the place gets bulldozed by developers at some point.
