Which Stain

Painting the exterior of my home which is cedar clapboard. Which is better to use, benjamin moore acrylic solid siding stain or their arborcoat?

Regardless who makes the product (or similar), I've found all the "claims" and warranties to be a bit embellished. Ex: "Will last for many seasons...guaranteed not to fade for 20 yrs...outperforms the competitor".

I don't think you can put eNOUGH of any one product, but if you're committed to the BM product line, I would consider using the ACRYLIC STAIN as a 1st coat, and then come right back over it with a CLEAR COAT of the Arborcoat.

That way you should ensure many years (relative statement I know) of usage without having it look like the dickens in just let's say 5yrs or so.

"MOST" people let theirs get to where it's too nasty to even deal with, having to replace split, warped boards and shaming their neighborhood :) I hope you're jumpin' on this as PREVENTATIVE medicine! ;)
