Forum Title: Semi-transparent stained house
I'm going to bid a semi-transparent stained house on Thursday morning. I actually rode out there this morning to get an early peek at it. It is a rough hewn clapboard style home that is actually in pretty nice condition. I'm not even sure why the guy feels like it needs attention just yet. Anyway, I was wondering if i shouldn't talk him into a solid color stain. It would be easier for me to apply and it would potentially last a bit longer. The current stain job is actually peeling off in a few places on the northwest end of the home. PS...it sits smack on Lake Barkley here in Kentucky. I even thought about selling him on two coats of exterior flat paint? I'm just not crazy about ST stain? Thoughts??

Solid color stain or painting are going to give you pretty much the same look, neither of which will look like a semi-transparent. I?d say practice your due diligence and explain that it is at best a process that will continue to have to be redone more often than a traditional paint job - then go with what he wants.
