Stained my t1-11 wood siding for years with oil base solid stain. Getting some mildew growing. I am scrubbing now with clorox. Can't decide if I should continue to use oil base stain or move to easier to purchase Latex. If I want oil base i need to drive about 30 miles to get. Please, help me with a decision about oil or latex. Thanks.

I would switch to a latex solid stain now as you don't want to keep puting oil based stain on the T-111 as it will cause it to delaminate over time as it attacks the glues that hold it all together. Be sure to allow the wood to dry at least 3 days after washing before you apply the stain.
