I have a pine wood log house on the Chesapeake. The stain (oil based Sherwin Williams tinted Woodguard) has weathered and is now very uneven (down to bear wood almost in some spots where it faces the elements). I would prefer not to use a solid stain. Is there something that I can do to even out the stain prior to using more Woodguard or would you recommend a semi-solid? If so which one? Thanks


You will probably need to have it stripped and start over with a good latex stain made for log homes. LifeLine from Perma Chink and Capture/Cascade from Sashco are both very good. Stay away from the Woodguard.
