RE: TWP Stain Comparison
Quoting taxdefer:
I live in Raleigh, North Carolina. I have just completed cleaning, stripping, brightening and staining a 1000 square foot, 25 year old deck (last stained 6 years ago and in deteriorated condition) made of pressure treated pine. The stain used was TWP 100 Clear. The wood looks great with the grain clearly showing. However the color is now a darkish brown. I am adding a set of steps of Cox pressure treated kiln dried pine which is a very blond (new wood) color. I plan to stain the stairs in a month. What stain and color would you advise to most closely match the existing deck color? Thanks for any advise you can provide.

I am confused to your question? There is no color in the clear nor is their UV protection. Might be best to get some samples to test for this. We have them on our site.

Live in Ohio. I am building a deck of kiln dried cherry. I'd like a penetrating oil stain, best possible. Very much prefer clear as most stains obscure rather than enhance grain. What do you recommend?

I have a deck made of raw white fir deck that has aged 6 months. I am thinking the 1500 rustic and would like to use a pump sprayer. Any suggestions. The deck has a roof made of the same with a metal top.

If you use a pump sprayer, you will need to back brush to ensure it soaks in and is applied evenly.

Quoting Zak Cook:
Hi,

I live in Southern California and need to refinish the siding on my SMOOTH, clear, cedar sided home. Previously treatments were apparently a traditional linseed oil/turpentine mix. I'd like to use a product that produces the most natural, non-obscuring finish possible. Generally I'm not a huge fan of the semi-transparent look - it's always somewhat plasticky. What would you recommend? Thanks so much.


The lightest tint in the TWP 1500 Series is the Honeytone. Make sure to prep by cleaning and removing the old coatings.

I am finishing a cedar deck. I have already washed it with a cleaner and then oxalic acid and there are still stains on it. I am planning on sanding it to get it back to original (which I did last year) Last year I applied a Sherwin Williams product on it and it failed miserably. I am assuming I will not need any of the prep products but which series should I get for the longest results. I would prefer to NOT have to do this every year. I love the idea of clear to keep the natural color of the cedar but am assuming that is not an option. HELP!!

Clear will not provide UV protection. The darker the tint, the longer the UV protection. Look at either the 100 or 1500 based on your state laws.

Quoting resinguy:
My deck is well weathered CCA pine, 15 years old. The contractor proposes to use TWP 200, which apparently is his standard for deck refinishing to give a two year warranty. I read here that TWP 200 is intended for shake/shingle roofs. Your thoughts? Thanks.

Guy

Yes the TWP 200 is intended for shakes and shingles. It has a high amount of paraffin oil. It can be used on decking with very good results. The negative is that it goes on very dark and can take 2 weeks to reach final color and to even dry fully. For this reason alone, we suggest the TWP 100 or 1500 that has a normal dry and cure of 4-24 hours.

re: New cedar fence
Yes you will need the 1500 for RI. If the wood is rough cut, then you can stain right away with no cleaning. Make sure wood is dry. If smooth, wait 4 months and prep first with the Gemini Restore Kit. 15-20 gallons for 2000 sq. feet and two coats of the TWP

Hi, I have just installed a 6 x160 ft cedar fence. I live in Rhode Island. About how long should I wait before staining? Since its a new fence, do I need to clean it? I want to stain both sides, about how much will I need and how many coats? I guess I have to use 1500 because I am in Rhode Island? Thank you!

If using the 1500 series, can only one coat be applied to year old bare wood? Is the 1500 series more opaque that the 100 series?

Both the 100 and 1500 are semi-transparen t and are not any different in opacity. Since it is older wood, it would be best to apply with 2 coats "wet on wet".

Many questions to use 100 or 1500. No explanation why they should use one or the other in all the comments on the site. I have a cedar fence in Austin TX. and read that the 1500 is better. Why shouldn't I use it verses the 100? Please advise. Thanks

Both work very similar but the 100 Series is not compliant in certain states. The 1500 Series does have a little higher solid content and that can translate into slightly better UV protection on a vertical surface such as your fence. Does not mean it will last longer but can hold color a little longer. The 100 Series advantage is that is dries quicker and is able to penetrate deeper.

255 feet x 4 feet = 1,020 sq ft
For both sides then it is 2040 sq. feet. You will need about 15-20 gallons for the two coats. Use the 1500 series for Northern VA.
What is the best price available for that quantity purchased? How long is delivery to VA?

TWP does not come in a solid stain. Look at the Dark Oak for a dark brown color but it will show the wood grain. Prep first with a Gemini Restore Kit.

We just laid down a 1300 sq. ft. deck with 2x6 rounded edge pressure treated pine.
There is maybe 4 hours of sun on part of the deck, the rest in shade and some areas damp.

Also, we have purchased panels of bamboo to build a fence.

I just stained my pine siding with 100. The wood is about 70 years old but looked and smelled new after I conditioned and brightened. Since the 100 penetrates into the wood, isn't it going to stay in the wood no matter how long I wait to do the maintenance coat? In other words, is the purpose for a maintenance coat merely for surface looks after it fades?

Use the TWP 1500 in low VOC states, older decks, or when in full sun. Use the TWP 100 if in a high VOC state, and or the wood is newer.



Is the 100 better to use and will it last longer?

They last about the same. 100 penetrates better so it wears better. 1500 holds color a little longer. Both will need to be redone every 2 or 3 years on average.

It should come off before using the TWP. Shoot for 95% removal. If you still need to get more off, then use the Restore A Deck Stripper for the prep and pressure washing. Brighten wood when done.

RE: TWP Stain Comparison
I am planning on refinishing my 15 year old cedar deck--Used TWP 100 about 5 years ago. I want to do the entire deck, top and bottom 14x40.
I have a lot of tree droppings on the deck every year and its fully shaded after 1pm--I need something that will hold up to the moisture and tree droppings and keep the mold/mildew down. What do you recommend? How much of it

RE: TWP Stain Comparison
Quoting Gillian Cropp:
WE are building a replacement deck in Conheart Redwood in California. Can you ship the oil-based formulas to us? If so which would be the best formula for a deck which gets hot sun for 8 months a year, very little rain in winter only and some frosts. No snow.
The deck is 550 linear feet and averages 7 feet across.
I would like to get samples of TWP 1500 in the most translucent you manufacture and in Redwood (would prefer very little pigment).

TWP 1500 is allowed for CA and it is oil based. We have samples on this link: http://www.twpstain.com/stain-samples
