Best exterior nail hole filler

ktkamm's picture

Filling nail hole in trim and recessed nail in cedar siding. Any suggestions for a reliable, exterior nail hole filler. For the clapboards, would you prime first, then fill the holes, sand, etc and paint? Thanks

One word...BONDO!

I don't like anything you have to use mix and use up in 5 minutes for filling nail holes. Bondo is one word, but that's it. I have used bondo many times where I need a bigger fill than nail holes.

I like the elmers filler in a tube for exterior. Don't get the tub unless you plan on using it all up quickly. The lid lets too much air inside and it dries up.
