The wood on the outside of your home takes a beating from the elements, so sooner or later you’ll need to repair some water damage. If you replace it with more wood, the chances are good that you’ll repeat the job in a few years.

For a lasting repair, choose something that water won’t affect. Trim boards and panels made from cellular PVC will never rot, crack, or split. This material can be cut and nailed just as easily as wood, so repairs are easy and permanent.

    Hi, Robert,

    Danny says, “Well, this is a very tricky repair but you can restore the shape of the wood by using an automobile body filler known by the brand name of Bondo.

    “However, that will then require you to paint the railing to get the consistent color. Of course, you may try to patch and only paint just the patched area and hope that it’ll blend into the white color.

    Good luck!”
