need a product to patch wood outdoors...


I have some garage door casing that is rotting where it meets the concrete. I've thought about using bondo or wood filler? The casing is about 8" wide. The deteriorated wood is about 3/4" gap at the one end of the casing. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance for any info

Durham's Rock Hard Water Putty is what I'd try. Truth is, though, it's only going to be a patch - kind of like slathering Bondo on a rusty area of your car. It's a temporary fix. Good luck!

Abatron was highly recommended to me when I was looking for a good wood repair solution. http://www.abatron.com/

I've never heard of it. How did it work - as in, turn out?

I haven't used it yet. I've been restoring the interior of the house for now. I hear about it through old house restoration forums. Someone also recommended this company as a cheaper alternative

Replacing the trim.

Of course, I know that's not always feasible or even desirable.
