I have T111 siding on my house and it needs to be stained again. It has been about 6 years and all of the protection is gone.

I would like to paint it this time about the same color as the previous stain, but was wondering which would be the best kind of paint to use. Any suggestions?

Thanks

You should use an acrylic solid hide stain on your siding. It will look better than a house paint and hold just as long.

You will need to wash the house with a product such as JOMAX to remove dirt and mildew before you apply the stain.

To get the longest lasting job you will need to apply two coats of the solid stain over over what sounds like a semi-transparent stain.
