My home is a gambrel with shakes on three sides and clapboard on the front. I am looking for the best TEAL color stain for my front clapboards.
I currently have fading Sherwin Williams water-based Woodscapes exterior house stain in Really Teal.Most of what is suggested here are wood-tone stains. Please, can you help?

Many thanks,

Hi, Kathleen.
It is difficult to find stain manufacturers who stray beyond wood tones for exterior use – most of their colors are for interior use only.
However, you can try Benjamin Moore stains; they have a wide range of colors for exterior use, with some close matches to your existing teal color:

Good luck!
