I have an 8 year old house I bought a year ago and the wooden bay window on the side of the house has several areas that are rotting badly. At this point, I don't think a sand/scrape and paint job will solve the problem. I'm not very experienced with wood repair, and I'm afraid to put new wood in there only to have it rot again (I'm not a fab of exterior wood!) Is there any way to put siding (we have aluminum siding on the rest of the house) over top of the wood? Are there any companies that would put a more synthetic surface on the bay - one that would not rot? Any help greatly appreciated!

I apologize for not viewing this post earlier.

You can have the wood "clad" with coil stock. A siding company should be able to do this for you.
