Just got down the hill from a project we completed 3 years ago in Idyllwild California. We did do some maintaince sealing last year on the corbals, fascia, arbor and horse walk. We were called back up to do some maintenance on the horse walk and stain and lacquer some new doors installed.
We used Olympic Deck and Siding Semi Transparent stain. The horse walk is holding up in exception of the area that gets full sun for 6 to 7 hours a day. Overall the product is holding up well. We should be resealing next year to prevent wood from being damaged.
I decided to match the stain in Benjamin Moore ArborCoat. I am interested in seeing if this product will hold up as long or longer.
