Topic tags/keywords: door repair exterior epoxy

A few days ago there was a thread about repairing an exterior door. There were some suggestions about some epoxy products to use. I can’t seem to find it now.

I have an exterior, south facing solid core wood door that has some delamination. I would like to remove the damaged wood, fill it with epoxy filler, sand smooth and paint. Anyone have a suggestion for the best product? Thanks.

Bob – Just removed our solid mahogany front door for that reason and replaced with a composite door. It was also south facing and was starting to become a td drafty during the winter.

Sorry can’t be of any assistance with the expoxt Bob but hope some knowledgable LJ er has the remedy.

bondo bob
(auto store)
it is nothing more than fiberglass resin
with talcum powder

sticks to almost anything
and makes great glue too

more red kicker
faster set-up
lay on thicker
and sand smooth real easy
(or thinner coats if you prefer)

paint

Thanks. That will be easier to get than I thought. I looked at wood filler yesterday at the bib box, but it was interior.
