Cedar Siding


I have a home that has cedar siding that has been stained with a semitransparent stain and sealed. House is in good shape, no fading yet. I want to seal it again before it starts to weather. Concerned that siding wont accept penetration because surface is already sealed well. What should be applied at this point before fading occurs and then have to restain to get even color back.

  1. When your cedar siding has already been stained with a semitransparent stain and sealed, it’s crucial to ensure that the reapplication of a sealant is done effectively to maintain the siding’s appearance and protect it from weathering. In this case, since the surface is already well-sealed, the key is to choose a suitable product that is compatible with the existing sealant.

    To seal your cedar siding effectively without running into issues related to penetration due to the existing seal, you should opt for a maintenance coat specifically designed for sealed surfaces. Look for a penetrating clear sealer that is formulated to bond with the previous finish, ensuring proper adhesion and prolonging the life of your siding.

    Before applying the sealant, thoroughly clean the cedar siding to remove any dirt, debris, or mildew that may have accumulated. This will help the new sealant adhere properly. Next, perform a small test patch in an inconspicuous area to ensure compatibility and adhesion with the existing finish.

    When applying the new clear sealer, follow the manufacturer’s instructions carefully, ensuring even coverage and allowing adequate drying time between coats. A maintenance coat applied at this stage will help fortify the existing seal and provide added protection against UV rays and moisture.
