Question

Stain over cedar siding


Siding has a medium brown stain that has faded. Will I be able to use a med/dark gray semi-transparent? Or will I need to use a solid stain?

A semi-transparent stain will reveal any color underneath it, as it is designed to reveal the wood grain. Solid stain is your only choice.
