How to Use Epoxy on Wood for Repairs

Epoxy is the perfect material to make permanent repairs of rotting window sills, door jambs and exterior molding that are difficult to remove and expensive to replace. Epoxy is easy to handle too.

It sticks like crazy and is formulated to flex and move with the wood, so it won't crack and fall out like some wood fillers.
