another amateur needing help

Yikes! My ignorance is abysmal! We have a new covered porch - decking and rails, pressure treated, probably kiln dried (that's what the contractor told us) which is now about 8 mos. old and needs to be stained. I want the railings white to match an existing porch. I'd expected to use solid stain. Would appreciate brand recommendations. The new porch connects to much older decking which has either been stained with a solid stain or painted and matches the houses siding. It is a tan. That stain (paint?) job has held up very well for 4 yrs now. I'd like to re-do it and match the decking on the new porch to the old deck so am thinking solid. Am I correct I should still be staining, not painting? Brand recommendations please?

I have a second house, vintage 1970's with cedar shakes siding which was done with a light blue/gray solid stain in 2007 over dark brown which has held up well and would like to redo it in the same color. Any and all advice will be appreciated!

Storm System offers a variety of semi-transparent wood finishes that are popular. I would check their site out. They also describe their products on the site so that you are able to pick the finish that you think would best fit your situation.
