Question:


my garage is ready to restain been over 10 years dad used a mixture he used to make himself when he built the place many many years ago he dipped his cedar sideding in a linseed oil, paint thinner, oil bese paint and japan dryers, the place is starting to dry in some weatherd areas time to recoat but what is the formula he used ???? and should i use the same stuff ? he used to say the stains now adays are trash his stuuf seams to hold up good but i dont nkow his formula no way to ask him any mor

Answer:

Sounds like it needs to be corn cob blasted and start with a good foundation. DO NOT use any linseed oil. It will cause black mold to grow on the wood. There are many excellent stains. Spend the money now - or spend it later to fix the problem again.
