I like to use minwax epoxy wood filler or bondo coz it aint gonna fall out, but it is extra labor time.

Re: Exterior Trim Patching?

If it's simple nail holes... Exterior grade caulking. But if it's a chunk of wood missing I'll use BONDO w/hardener shaped just a little thicker than needed and sanded down or Plumbers epoxy EP-400 EPOXY PUTTY set the same way.

With the latter I would recommend sanding ASAP because it dries hard as steel.
