Outer felt wallboard has a hole in it.


Does anybody know how to fill a hole in the exterior felt wall board that I think a bird made. Last winter I had a bad windy day and some of my siding fell and I have not got around to fixing it yet. Now I have a hole int he felt borad and need to fix the hole.

Cut a pice of foam to fit. (adjust the hole to make this easier) and put the blasted siding back up!

Felt board? Sure it's not Celotex?

Far cheaper to buy a new piece of Celotex, cut it to fit so it can be nailed in the middle of the studs then to use foam.

Yes it is Celotex, I couldn't think of the name.
The whole is only 2 inches in diameter,so is there a better way to fix this than to put a whole board up?

You do not to replace the whole board, your just stuck having to buy a whole panel.
Just think how simple this would be if you would have of fixed it before there was a hole.

Ok, can you give me a idea how to fix it once I buy the board?

Remove the siding in that area, cut out a square with the two outer edges cut over the middle of the studs.
Cut a patch the same size as the hole and nail it up with 1-1/4 roofing nails.
Tape over the seams and reinstall the siding.
