wood stain


I am getting ready to re-stain the siding on my house and need to know what is the best semi-transparent stain to use. I originally used a Sherwin-Williams brand and am considering using a Behr brand. Anyone have advice on the best brand?

Oh boy did you just open a can of worms.
Stick with the Sherwin Williams.
You'll see hundreds of post on here of people having trouble with the Baur stains and paints.

I think all Behr products are awful, but, their stain products are beyond awful.
