Re-staining the deck this weekend. I’m 99% sure its treated pine and not cedar. Anyway a few of the vertical 4×4 posts have devloped cracks. None threaten the structural integrity but they are an eye sore. Its not worth replacing the timber… (yet anyway). Has anyone had luck filling cracks in exterior wood? I’m planning on using a solid stain so preserving grain patterns is not a concern. I’m only interested in a cosmetic fix for this one.
Traditional wood filler?
Special wood filler?
Don’t bother trying?
