Which is better: fill with wood putty or caulking?
The paint on the railings of our exterior front porch is peeling, and we've had two painters in for estimates so far. One guy said that to even out some places in the wood, he would use wood putty, but the second guy said that he would *never* use wood putty for those places, and instead use caulking. He was examining some places where the paint has peeled and said that he could see someone had used wood putty underneath in those spots and he would use caulking instead.
I have no idea which to believe, so turning to this forum's collective wisdom. :-) Does it make sense to say one would *never* use wood putty for this type of exterior work?
