Repairing Rotten Timbers On A Porch

I completed some repair work to a porch for a customer the other day. The porch had gone rotten in the usual places and wood worm on on the fascia board also needed attention.
The corner post had rotted through on the bottom
The gutter had been leaking on the corner and had rotted out the end of the fascia board

Wood worm on this piece was quite bad and needed splicing

I cut the bad wood from the this piece and then sanded back all the fascia so I could treat it all for woodworm before making my reapairs.

The bottom of the door frames also needed splicing

A new piece spliced in 

All treated and primed ready for the next coat of paint

New corner post and cover strips
 Not a glamorous job but I was pleased with the results and so long as the porch has a proper coat of paint it should last for many years to come.


  1. Looks like one of my jobs LOL. Fiddly fussy stuff and hard to match corners and splices.

    1. It was an awkward job but working for nice people and sometimes that makes all the difference to a job that isn't fun.
