Danny and Joe welcome callers’ questions each week on the Today’s Homeowner Radio Show.
Here’s a question from our Feb. 23, 2019 broadcast:

Shirley from Iowa says, “We had a tongue-and-groove ceiling installed about 25 years ago. Miniwax stained poly was applied at that time. We are retired and would like to add a coat of something to the ceiling as it seems to be drying out. Don’t know if we need to sand it a bit first or if we can just clean it and apply a clear coat to it. Should it be oil or water-based?”

Listen to the embedded audio clip above for the answer!
