Repair Rotted Garage Door Frame and Hinge Mounting

Postby yartin » Wed Jun 21, 2017 10:59 am

I have an old garage wooden door, am sure its the original around 1950/60s. There is evidence section of the frame been replaced in the past as can see 45 degrees cuts.
One of the top hinges now has come out and that's due to rotted wood in the area where the hinge is fixed, the rest of the frame is fine. Can I use products like "Unibond repair wood for good" to repair the rotted area and screw the metal hinge back? IE: are such products strong enough to do the job for me?
