best stain for pine siding?


Hi, I just yesterday finished sanding the paint off the South-facing side of my exterior 1941 garage, down to beautiful yellow pine. The scent is delightful, and it looks like it just fell off the tree.

Could someone recommend a coating that won't peel, turn dark, doesn't need yearly maintenance, and will protect the wood from the harsh Florida sun?

Thank you.

That would be vinyl siding applied over your wood siding.

Your best bet is probably going to be a clear latex deck/siding stain.

pine is not very resistant to fungus/moisture/insects unfortunately.

Youd be best to paint a biocide wood protection first.

To protect from the sun the only thing that works are pigments, the darker the more UV protection.

I've used Cabot siding and fence solid stain many times when replacing rotted wooden siding on 100 year old houses.
Matches the already painted siding, and I've never seen it peel.
Going to need two coats.

Sounds like you have some nice old-growth pine. If you want to keep the grain visible, go with Penofin Red Label transparent. I'd probably go with either the cedar or red cedar tint on yellow pine.

The peeling is probably due to there being no where for moisture to escape from the wood. Doesn't it rain quite often in Florida? Make sure there is some sort of ventilation for the back side of those boards and 90% of the peeling potential is eliminated.

It is nice old-growth pine. Back in the old days, I don't think they had to coat that old wood. The worst that happened would be it greyed. Too bad I have to coat my exterior garage to be compliant with city codes.

Yes, we are on the brink of very humid and/or wet weather here in Florida. The back of the boards are inside the garage, have never been coated. The garage stays closed, so I hope that's good enough ventilation. The side of the garage in question gets full sun most of the day.

If the back of the siding is exposed inside the garage you should be ok. although it wouldn't hurt to leave the door open for a while on less humid days. Your humidity issues are a lot different then what I have in Ohio.

Penofin comes in clear, too, if you want to keep the existing color. Still has 99% UV protection.

If youll refer to the key, youll see that the sapwood of some woods is also suitable for use, just you need chemical wood protection.

Nothin' fishy at all, Brian.....transparent iron oxide pigments have been around for a long time. You've been missing out...

yeah I get it, just wanted to point out that the difference between heartwood and sapwood is on that chart. Good info btw.
