Right next to the deck on my exterior door at the bottom I have some water damage to the wood. It is only an area about 1 inch square and the rest of the wood is in excellent shape. Problem is I am wanting to get the house ready to put on the market and would like to correct this problem. I believe the facing is built into the door frame and removing it would be near impossible especially for such a small job.
The facing is also like many it is graduated down, routed, grooved, I am sorry I don't know the actual term but its not just a flat facing is what I am trying to say and part of the rot is of course between these areas or in the valley of the areas.
What can I do? If I trim it out and reconstruct it with a wood putty will that hold up? The area does not get standing water I guess it just get a lot of paint plus its on the very end of the board exposed too.
Any suggestions? Thanks.
