House is currently being log sided, cedar, hand hewn. I will be using Woodguard stain. I live in Southeast Michigan. Considering the temperatures, etc. should we stain first then caulk or reverse order? Also, what is the best caulk to use and how long to cure and what is the minimum temperature that can occur in order to have it cure properly. I specified Energy Seal caulk, but due to temperatures my contractor wants to use solar seal. This is a rubber based caulk.


Energy Seal only and use something different than W.G. I recommend Life Line.
