Question:


i have yellow pine siding on my house that is ten years old i am sanding it down and putting up some new boards what can i do to make the new wood match the old when i stain it the old wood is naturaly going to look darker when stained

Answer:

You can take a lighter stain than what you will use for the main color to put a light coat on the new wood. Try to get something that makes the new boards look like the old ones sanded. You can then just stain the entire house with the main color. You will never get them 100%, but it will be pretty close.
