    I just bought a house that has a pressure treated deck. Seems untreated. I'm looking to apply TWP 100 in Cedartone. What should i do for prep and application? If I use deck cleaner, how long will it have to dry (in Northern VA) before applying the stain. Anyone have good pics of what the finished product should look like for this color on PT wood?

      Prep with the Gemini Restore Kit. This will restore the wood. Takes two days to dry before staining.

    I have a new (5 month) old pressure treated deck and live in upper part of South Carolina (not close to the coast). When should I apply TWP and which type should I use. Do I need order on line or is there a distributor nearby. Thanks

    My "wood experts" neglected to put down drop cloths for staining my second story deck and i have tons of brick landscape stones and brick pavers that got drip, splash, and other oily stains now. The wood looks great! The bricks do not. Any suggestions for helping remove or lighten these stains? Thanks!

    Try a graffiti remover cleaner and pressure washing.

    I just built a new redwood deck with all new 2x lumber(not kiln dried). So I need to wait and let the wood dry out some before treating it? If so how long?

    I applied TWP100 to a 5 month old cleaned deck floor with pressure-treated wood. The cedar color is barely visible. What can I do to intensify the color?

    You used the 100 Clear? The clear is not tinted and does not have UV protection for the wood. You will need to remove it with this:

    And then apply TWP in one of the tinted colors for an enhanced look and UV protection.

    I live in SW Minnesota so we get cold winter and hot summer. Have 2 cedar decks installed in 2005. Both are covered but one gets Sun in the am and the other gets afternoon - evening sun. I have used Olympic Maximum stain in natural cedartone semi-transparent stain on the deck. Stain only last 2 years before it peels. The wood is in good shape with no mold or mildew. Vertical components of the deck are not peeling like the horizontal parts. What should I use to strip off old stain and what stain do you recommend I use?

    I have an ipe deck that was installed one year ago. I am interested in coating it and it sounds like the TWP 100 would be the way to go. Is pressure washing and/or Gemini Restore recommended for prep? Is there anything special that needs done due to the density of this wood? I have heard that the absorption will be very minimal. How many coats should be applied? The deck is in the Florida keys, so it is warm year round, but it is shaded most of the time.

    Yes, prep with the Gemini Restore Kit and pressure washing. Just one coat for IPE. Most use the Rustic 116 color for IPE. Coverage is 300+ per gallon for this wood type.

    TPW 100
    Can I put more than one coat on?
    How long between coats?

    Hello, depends on if the wood is new or older wood if you can do two coats. New wood is one coat. Older wood is typically two coats applied wet on wet. See this about wet on wet:
