I used sickens stains 10 years ago when my cabin was new. Now it needs repainting. Some of the Sikkens has disappeared while other areas it is still there. How can I be confident that a latex outdoor paint will adhere to the remaining sickens stain?


You can't. I would advise stripping the home and start with a fresh surface. After 8 to 10 years it is always recommended to strip.
