We stained our log home about 3years ago with Ben Moore exterior oil stain it's starting to fade out ,would like to use Sherwin Williams woodscapes latex solid stain, logs are in great shape and clean my concern is latex over oil finish, home is 25 years old. Thanks, Denny


Latex over oil is usually OK, but you should talk with Sherwin Williams to see if they would agree. Woodscapes Solid is a very good product in my opinion. I have it on my home and have had very good luck with it.
