    I have 25+year old deck that was untouched for at least 19 years since we moved in. Yesterday I did power wash it and day/ night difference revealed. It is now very light natural wood color. I plan to sand some spots, railing. Do I need any to prep it? It has no stains and feels as raw wood. I plan to use 1500 two stain.
    thank you Jan

    I have a few dry days coming in the forecast and hoping to fit in some deck staining. Questions.

    - Can the cleaner and brightener be used back to back, or should a period of time be between the two?

    -How of long of drying period is needed for the wood to dry after it is cleaned, and before staining?

    How do you know if your deck only needs the 'Restore-A-Deck' Cleaner/Brightener product or if it needs the Stripper/Brightener?

      You have 116 Rustic in the picture, not 1516 Rustic. Rustic and Rustic Oak are the same things.

    How long do the Step 1 (cleaner) and Step 2 (brightener) stay good for? I first used about 4 years ago and still have some left, will it still be effective?

      If in powder form, they are still good.

    I have a 5 year old deck that we put twp on originally and its time to re-stain. We are going to use the same twp color as before. Should I use RAD or stripper/brightener first?

    Hello I was directed to purchase a cleaning kit, which I did and is being shipped but after reviewing more details on this site it looks like I should have bought the strip kit instead. Can you confirm. I have a old deck that has not been stained in 6+ years. Its green, black, but also has some old stain on it.
    Can the cleaning kit help remove any old stain or do i need to order the strip kit instead.

      Yes, use the Stripper and Brightener kit.

    We are planning to re-stain our cedar siding using the same semi-solid stain used approximately 9-10 years ago (prior to our purchase of home). We need to prep/ clean the wood first. Is RAD a good choice for cedar siding? Do we just follow the same directions as for a deck - i.e. mixing ratio, sprayer application, etc.? Thanks
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 05/03/2020
      Yes, you can use the RAD for prepping siding. Same steps.

    I have fir railings on an Azek deck and some PVC posts, will this product damage the PVC posts or deck?

      No, it should not.

        One follow-up, the fir railings have never been treated, were done just before the winter, and are starting to gray and have some black spots (possible mold?). I'm looking at this product to clean it up, instead of sanding with probably 100grit, before treating with likely TWP101. My questions are, can I use this instead of sanding? If so, would there be any benefit of sanding after using this product before treatment?

    I am trying to strip and stain my deck with the 1500 series stain. I was planning on using the deck stripper and brightener kit. Do I also have to use a deck cleaner as well? What order would I complete the cleaning aspect of it then? I know I would use the deck stripper before the brightener but what about the cleaner? What step would that be?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 04/30/2020
      No need for a cleaner if stripping.

    I have a cedar railing that I stained last summer with TWP 100 . It was 1 year old when I did it. I used a deck cleaner and a wood brightener ( Citralic Brightner and Neutralizer) before applying the TWP 100. This year after the snow melted this is what im seeing Yuk! What do you think went wrong?
    The vertical wood looks beautiful but the horizontal will probably have to be sanded off?

    I have a powder coated aluminum railing system installed on my deck, with glass inserts. Is there any concern if the restore-a-deck contacts it? Will it react with the aluminum?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 04/21/2020
      Thre is no way to say for certain if an issue or not as not all aluminum deck products are manufactured the same. Typically not an issue but always test spot first.

    We have a cedar arbor and patio cover that we stained with TWP101 cedartone natural about 5 years ago. It has held up REALLY well with just few touch ups. However, in the covered portion, where the sun doesn't hit it, it has turned really dark. It seems to have some type of mold growing on it maybe. Will the restore a deck kit remove this? Can I apply this with a roller or brush instead of buying a sprayer for this small area? Is there anything I can do to keep it from turning so dark again?

    I have a new deck with pressure treated pine we installed last July. I'm ready to stain(using the TWP 1500 series). What cleaner would you recommend we use to prep the deck for staining?
    I see the Restore a Deck kit but not sure we need the brightener. Thanks
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 04/20/2020
      Yes, you need the brightener. Use the Gemini Restore Kit for prep.

    This is my 2 year old deck. PT lumber that's never been painted or stained before. You can see that theres some surface damage here. I've just ordered Restore-A-Deck and some TWP 200 stain (I'm in Canada) but I'm curious about other prep you recommend. Should I sand the whole surface first to remove this damage? What grit do you recommend?

      Personally, I would just clean and brighten before staining. I doubt that after doing so, you'll see any need for sanding. Here's a progress pic of cleaning my 20 year old deck, that hadn't been cleaned in several years, with RAD cleaner. There's another pic farther down the thread of the finished product, several months later. The deck is a little dirty in the "finished" pic, but when it's hosed off, it looks nearly new.

      You do not and for prep. You use the Gemini Restore Kit and that will remove the graying.

        Robin · 04/20/2020
        So all of the "fuzz" that you see will come off with the restore-a-deck alone?
        • We will reply to your comment shortly
          TWP Stains · 04/20/2020
          That is oxidation and most of it will come off with the Cleaner and pressure washing.

            Ok, don't want to beat a dead horse here, but if some doesn't come off, is sanding going to be a problem for stain application? I want to do this right!

              TWP Stains · 04/20/2020
              Sanding does not help the TWP to soak in. Best to not power sand. If needed, you can lightly use a hand or pole sander.
