Hello kmosher55!


Another community member asked the same question and I produced a video to explain the products.

Since that time, Behr has consolidated the green jug and the red jug into All-In-One ... that both kills mold and mildew and opens the surface of your wood to accept new stain.


This is the product I often recommend for wood like yours.


Simply spray or brush onto the surface and use a hose to rinse within ten-minutes ... it does not require a pressure washer.




The next question you should ask before proceeding is, "Is the original finish paint or stain?"

Finally, Behr Semi-Transparent and Solid Color stains have consistently been rated best.


Here is a short discussion.
