Best Method To Fix Exterior Window Sills

Posted by chipster_2007 (My Page) on

I have some exterior window sills that are badly checked and am not able to replace them at this time. What materials would be the best to use to help extend the life of these sills for as long as possible? Would Bondo work or what other products would you recommend? Thanks

hey are only "badly checked" some Minwax Wood Hardener, then some High Performance Wood Filler and a new coat of paint (1 coat primer, two coats of paint) should let them hold up for a while.

If the checking is very bad there is very likely some rot under the surface.
