Acrylic Solid Stain vs Oil Semi Trans or Semi solid


Thank you,

This is exactly the advice I was looking for. It is beautiful cedar and I want to take the time and do it right.

Regards,

Acrylic Solid Stain vs Oil Semi Trans or Semi solid


I hate to resurrect the thread, but hey... how about the three month rule? I just made it up. Anyway, what do you folks think about backbrushing with a pad? I am trying to avoid moving the ladder too much, so I need to backbrush with either a roller or a pad. I've read opinions that a pad is less likely to leave brush marks, but I don't know how feasible that is on siding as opposed to a deck. I've also heard that you shouldn't put oil stain on top of oil stain. If this is true, I'd also need to figure out whether I have latex or oil right now.

How do you know if your wood is "rough sawn"? My cedar siding is not smooth, but it's not splintery like shakes either.

Acrylic Solid Stain vs Oil Semi Trans or Semi solid


Looking back on hammerheart's comments among others, it looks like I probably should apply oil stain regardless, as any defects are probably caused by applying too much stain or letting it puddle. I probably still need to figure out whether I can use a pad to speed the backbrushing.
