Fence Paint/Stain Questions
A few years ago, I had my 6 month old cedar fence stained with Cabot Pro VT solid stain and within months it started peeling off in sheets. The painter did not use a primer. He came back and touched up some spots and claimed that it was because of snow being up against it. Cabot says it must have been moisture in the wood prior to staining.
Now I want to repaint it but I'm reluctant to use a solid stain again and I'm wondering if I should just paint it. If someone could give me recommendations, I'd very much appreciate it.
I'm also planning to re-stain or re-paint a pergola made of PT wood. I used Olympic solid stain on that. It hasn't peeled but gray shows through it not. Can I just recoat it with more stain or should I paint.
