We put cedar siding on our house and used Behr deck plus semi transparent stain in 2002, last year we noticed the stain was coming off of it like dust, and some places it looks like it rained and the stain ran. We were wondering if anybody else has had this problem. We know we have to restain it, but we don't know what to use, and do we have to try to get the old stain off first.


You should not put deck stain on the side of a house. It is formulated for completely different circumstances. You will have to corn cob blast the Behr off and apply a good quality log home stain like Perma Chink Ultra 2.

I agree with blasting and applying a good log home stain. Do you ever recommend other quality stains like Sashco's Transformation. If there is any question about durability, I would refer you to a competitive study found on Sashco's web site
