Bought a home with log siding. 12yrs old with original stain. Stain was wood royal deck and siding semi transparent oil polyurethane fortified. Should I just pressure wash then stain, or try to use something to remove old stain? thanks


I would recommend removing old stain first after that length of time. If you power wash to do so (I recommend media blast, corn or glass) be sure to let it dry real well first. Try to stick with a good latex stain like Life Line. Call Dave at 800-564-2987 for help and materials.
