Vertical cedar sealing gone wrong
June 29, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We have sealed this house many times. Using same product. On the right of picture is a fresh application. On the left we have after 24 hours. White and furry? Any suggestions? We are applying a second application even though it says it is not necessary. It is 80 degrees past few days but we have applied in past years on warm summer days. Any suggestions would be appreciated

Yes it was cleaned well And allowed to dry for weeks before applying sealer. We have used the sealer in the past with success and the cleaner in the past with success. It appears to be wood fibers. And we pressure washed it in the cleaning process

I am thinking pressure washing may have caused some of the problem?

We are using a product made by Sun Frog. We have used it 2 x in the past with good results. Log And siding Sealer. We have rustic tight knot cedar siding. It is rough sawn. What puzzles me most is we have used the same cleaner and sealer in the past. With good results. We allowed the siding to dry for 2 weeks before application of the sealer.

The only thing I can think of since I'm not there to really see it is that the wood has uv damage and the wood has grayed they make products to restore it cleaner would of not helped it

Try using steel wool to remove the "fuzz" before reseating

We used a restoring product after cleaning. Born Again wood restorer by Sun Frog.
We have applied a 2nd coat of sealer hoping the wood fibers lay down on the wood better. Will know when it dries if it was a successful fix.
