3 years ago I had my log home sand blasted to remove a solid stain that had been previously applied. I re-stained the house using California Storm Stain Semi-Transparent oil based. Mildew problems have been terrible with this application.
I want to clean the house with Jomax /bleach and re-stain. Is this my best bet? If yes, I know I should wet plant life first but should I wet the house before putting on the Jomax solution?
When I re-stain should I use a different product? Perhaps a Latex or water based product. My understanding is the mold tends to feed on oil based stain and latex would be a better alternative.
I still want to use a semi-transparent? Has anyone used California storm-stain latex based semi-transparent?
What about adding an additive to the stain or is this just a gimmick?
