Fire damage advice
I'm renovating a house that has had fire damage. The damage began on the 2nd floor and did little damage to the downstairs. Replacing charred wood will have us replace about 30-40% of the roof rafters and decking. Much of the roof that is not charred is black from smoke. What should I do to that wood to eliminate any smoke smell? I've heard you should spray every piece of wood with evidence of smoke damage with Kiltz. Someone else mentioned doing the same thing with (I think) zinc oxide.
We're about 1/2 of the way through the repair and the smoke smell hasn't reduced that much and I'm beggining to worry if it will ever come out.
Any help with this problem and recommendations on fire damage repair in general would be appreciated.
