I have a question: How do I replace small sections of rotted trim wood?
I don't just want to know how to remove all the trim wood, or how to revove just the ends of the trim wood; I can find online tutorials for that easily enough. What I'm looking for is how to just replace small rotted sections of trim wood without taking away any of the good trim with it. I'd rather not waste resources replacing the entire trim just for the sake of a couple of inches of rotted wood here and there. The trim in question is all exterior: around the windows, on the siding, under the deck, and on the steps to the deck.
Maybe we could goudge it out, fill it, and paint it, like a dentist filling a cavity?
once it starts it is hard to stop the rot. there are really professional ways to epoxy with hardeners and such but you have to clean really deep into wood to get back to non rot for the hardener to adhere to. a multi tasker tool can cut a foot or so above rot and you then need to replace only a foot of trim instead of entire runs (long lengths). sometimes you can do more damage with the repairs, please be careful.
