My whole house has been sanded down in preparation for stain. The old cedar cleaned up way better than I thought it would. I did a test area using TWP 1500 series in pecan on the back of my house and thought it looked great (warm golden brown). However, another test spot on the front of the house looked awful (blotchy and dark reddish brown). I even tried TWP clear stain in hopes of keeping it close to the natural look and it turned out blotchy and reddish too. The front of the house does face west, southwest so it catches the afternoon sun. Any ideas as to what I can do to improve the look of the stain?
