Question DetailsAsked on 1/13/2017

Has anybody seen or heard of a person using hot mud to patch wood siding on a house? This seems very wrong

Landlord is having a painter fix the back of the house where there is a lot of peeling paint and exposed wood.

Do you have the same question? Follow this Question

Mud - are you serious - unless an adobe house, no WAY.

Wood putty or wood dough rated for outdoor use, yes - and automotive polyester resin body filler yes, but mud - this sounds like a backwoods handyman.

I would contact the landlord about this ASAP.

Just in case someone thought I was saying not to use wood to repair damage on wood siding - of course replacing pieces of wood works, as does drilling out the bad piece in the right diameter (if small or like a popped-out knot or localized insect damage or such) and gluing in (with totally waterproof glue) a piece of wood cored out of a matching piece of wood with a hole saw so it is a tight fit. You can even pretty well match the grain if careful about the piece you take the core from and the orientation in the hole.

This also works well for filling holes left by no longer needed utility or duct or pipe penetrations.
