I need to refinish the outside of my log home. What is the best stain that will last more than a couple of years?

Asked by Shiela Cahill

The home is 8 yrs old, and I have put on a clear coat also trying to keep the stain for a longer time.  As I am getting close to retirement age and it is getting a little harder to do.
