"We have a Lindal cedar home with wood windows. From the beginning 13 years ago, we stained the windows according to directions, using Sikkens Cetol 1 and Cetol23 and I have sanded lightly and restained the exterior window trim areas that were flaking ever year since. Even so the trim does not look good. It looks like moisture has stained the wood and it's unsightly.
What do you suggest? Sikkens has a opaque stain and I assume paint companies could also match the color. I have read the one similar post, but am not sure if it would apply to our situation. Any help would be very much appreciated. We are going to have to sell our home in the next year or two as we are in our 70s and my husband's health is poor.
