Paint Question

My camp is finished in rough cut Hemlock siding. I stained one side of it about 4 years ago with used motor oil. It has since set in and is starting to fade. The rest is unfinished. I was thinking of painting all of it, but need to know if I can paint over the stained portion. Does anyone have any advice? I talked to a paint store and they didn't seem to sure about what to do. I asked them if I should prime it first and they said it would not hurt.

Re: Paint Question

I would stain it again, wood needs to breathe. paint traps the moisture in.

Re: Paint Question

I agree with Redrock, get a good oil based stain but pressure wash first.

Re: Paint Question

Paint will eventually chip, crack and peel, then you'll have more prep work when you have to repaint. i.e. Scrape, spackle, sanding etc. I would stain again and like blueridge said, power wash first.

Itís funny until somebody gets hurt, then itís hilarious

Same here.

Re: Paint Question

use a solid color stain such as Sherwin Williams, Woodscapes!!! $45.00 gallon but good stuff. 5 gallons will do 22- 4 by 8 plywood sheets.

Re: Paint Question

That's what I did our camp with several years ago and it has held up very well. Better than anything previously.

I've had a commercial account at our local S-W for over 30 years and the stuff they have now (Woodscapes) is the best ever.

Dad did the cabin in dark brown solid color stain when we built it, so I had no choice but to continue with it.

The OP may have a problem getting any latex stain to adhere to his wood, since it was originally done in used motor oil. But a semi-transparent oil stain might work okay?

Re: Paint Question

Several years I did my MIL house and mixed Rustic Brown and Redwood Hue and it was perfect, brushed it on. It was thin enough that I would try it now with a hand pump garden sprayer....Her house at the time was vertical log summer home...
