Should You Paint Or Stain Your Wood Siding?
Painting and staining are definitely not the same, although they can both be applied to wood siding there are differences between the two. Solid color stains are very similar to regular paint as both will form a protective layer on the surface of the wood but neither paint nor stain really penetrate the wood or do anything to enhance the appearance of the wood grain.
Paint and stains can come in almost any color or tint and provide thorough protection for wood siding. When it comes to protecting your wood siding though, stain has a slight advantage in that it has the characteristic of being able to expand and contract with your wood siding during the various seasons changing from hot to cool weather. This expansion and contraction can cause a poor paint job to crack, flake, and peel.
When it comes to choosing a stain that can enhance the grain of the wood then semi-transparent stains are formulated to actually penetrate the wood. This can then color the wood fibers and work to enhance the natural character and color of the wood grain. Semi-transparent stains do not provide the same UV protection nor moisture protection as paint or stain but they are usually more affordable.
If you’re looking for a definitive answer as to what you should paint your wood siding with paint or stain, it’s usually best to repaint your wood siding with the same type of product it was painted with prior. This makes the prep work much easier and will require less sanding.
