Exterior Woodwork

David McCarthy asked 10 years ago

My exterior doors and windows have broken down. They are weathered, turning grey with black marks. The colour of the previous stain is light oak. I have tried to put light oak over the top but the stains and grey areas still show through.

You need to strip and sand to remove the old weathered stain before applying the new stain. In many cases just sanding is enough to remove the stains and old finish. Unfortunately there isn't an easy way of doing it.
