We have timber joinery. At the point where the vertical face board around the windows meets the windowsill there are some splits and the wood is a bit soft in places. I was going to dig out any soft wood, coat with green metalex and then refill with builders fibreglass before priming and painting Is this the best approach. Thanks for your help
Response from Mitre 10: Yes, the approach that you suggest following is the right idea for minor damage. (Small isolated spots only.) If the damp in the fascia board is 50% or more of the board then you`d need to remove and replace the board altogether, not just spot repair it. Also, check that the brand of builders fill you use can be painted over.
