Before you start repainting on wood, according to SPPI exterior painters, make sure it is in mint condition. Tap it to test for rot using a dull knife or a screwdriver. A very soft or crumbly feel is a telltale sign that only means only one thing: the wood is rotting. If the damage is less than 50 percent of the entire wood area, you can still salvage it by using a well-known substance you can buy at any auto parts store to repair the wood.
