People typically use stain if they want more of the grain to show, whether it’s solid or semitransparent. Solid stain will last longer. No need for primer if you stain because stain needs to penetrate the wood. Power wash clean and let it dry. Stain typically last 3-5 years. Prime and paint will last longer but you take away from the look of the wood by putting on a coating that builds and fills in some of the grain but will give you longer life. Paint will last 10+ years depending on the paint used. Hope this helps, I’ve worked for Sherwin Williams for 17 years.
