We built a stick frame home with pine log siding in central Illinois in 2006. At the time we stained the siding on both sides before installation. It was never sealed. What do you recommend now for routine maintenance? Washing? Staining? Sealing? From other answers a see that you recommend Timeless wood products - right?

By never sealed I mean we stained both sides with cwf flood ceder tone and didn't use any type of a sealer or varnish over the stain. Timeless said to use their products I would have to remove the oil base sealer stain and start over - that's not going to happen. Would you recommend that I power wash ans restain with the saqme product? Do I ever need to seal over the stain??
