The Problem Known As Mill Glaze
Mill Glaze is the almost polished like finish that is on the smooth side of clapboards or in the grain of the rough side. It's so smooth, almost glass like, and is impervious to penetration from most if not all products. This same problem is also commonly seen on newer shingles and trim boards. Whatever is applied to the mill glazed wood siding sits on the surface with little or no penetration.
Staining Your Home
The product known as "stain" is intended to penetrate the wood surface becoming part of the wood. This is not permitted with mill glazed wood. A properly functioning stained house will gradually fade over time. The average staining job should last 6-8 years. At the time of restraining, the maintenance of such a home should consist of no more than a washing and one (1) coat of stain to rejuvenate the finish.
