Our house was built 9 years ago with cedar siding (blue/grey color). It came pre-stained or painted from the factory. The builder also applied a coat of stain or paint. I don't know which. The siding needs painting or staining. What do I use? Paint or stain? I want to use good quality. Can you recommend a brand?

If I had a home with rough sawn siding that I didn't know what was on it I would go with an oil base solid body stain.I say this because if the home has an oil stain on it,it could be a problem to use latex paint or stains.If you are using a very reputable house painter I would be inclined to let them use whatever they would warranty.If you could determine what is on the house I may be able to offer more in the way of advice.
