How to repair dents in woodwork

Task difficulty: Very easy

We've been moving furniture around the home and have the inevitable chips and dents on woodwork, especially on door frames and skirtings. Being flexible, Wood Flex bonds strongly and moves with the wood, giving a long lasting repair that will make you glad you chose the best product for the task. Repairs can be either sanded ready for painting, or even left as applied, as its white formulation blends neatly with surrounding paintwork.
