    Can you tell me the cost to ship one Gemini restore kit and one gallon of the TWP 100 Series stain. I haven't decided on a color yet. Do you have any stores in the Northwest area like Seattle so the shipping might be less to our area.
    Our address is Montesano, WA 98563
    Thank you,
    Joy Hughes

    Shipping is about $20 to WA for this. We only ship from MI. Thx!

    We had a beautiful deck built 3 years ago. We let it cure etc and then had it stained. It looked like color just sat on top of wood and peeled within months. We has it sanded and done again (can still see some of old stain thru a it it looks awful. We want to start over. First off, where suggest finding a reputable person to so for us who knows your produvts? Then do we need to (1) step one of Gemini (2) do we need to use Gemini stripped or try sanding again? (3) brightened from kit (4) then the twp stain!? Before step 4 should all old stain be off or will be some old stuff there? Last time we sanded and sanded and didn't all come up. Plus, we have metal railings with wood on top. How do we strip that and any way to get stain off that dropped on the metal? Such a beautifully built deck but poorly finished! So disappointing. Help!

    You should remove all of the old stain. Strip off as much as possible with the Restore A Deck Stripper. Sand if needed after. Use the RAD Brightener and rinse after 10 minutes. When the wood is dry and prepped you can then use the TWP.

    Steveo08:
    Hi, will the Gemini Restore-A-Deck Kit remove stains caused by use of the wrong nails on a cedar deck rails? Our contractor apparently used screws that reacted with the oils in the cedar causing black/grey spots. We are currently in month 2 of letting the new cedar weather, and we're planning on staining in month 10. Prior to doing that, we will use this brightener/cleaner product, but wanted to find out if the contractor needs to replace all the railings or if this will take care of it. Please let me know. Thanks!

    That is rust from the nails and from him using the wrong nails. The Kit may remove it temporarily but most likely they will come back when it rains.

    What sort of process is involved with the cleaning/brightening kit? is this a hands and knees operation or a bit less labor intensive? We would like to order the kit but would like to know what we are getting into first, and we have concerns about the champion standard poodle show dogs in the household as well.

    You need a pump sprayer and a pressure washer for best results. You can read here for instructions:

    I have received samples of semi transparent 1500 series stains and have made a choice.

    Pretreated pine fence (144 feet)built by Lowes 5/30/14.

    Question: Can I purchase and do Gemini pretreatment in Oct/Nov? How soon afterwards can I do the stain?

    Thank you.

    Mary

    Yes you can do this in October/November as long as the weather is warm enough. Stain 2 days after the Gemini Kit prep.

    The Behr stain I applied two years ago is heavily peeled and has some mildew. The cleaner and stain I use must be safe for the koi pond right next to the deck, considering potential overspray and runoff. Would appreciate your recommendation.

    The cleaner is safe but you should not get the stain into the water as it is oil based and will float on top of the pond water.

    Live in the NW on a salt water beach. Last year cleaned my 30 yr old cedar deck, sanded, staining with TWP; this year would like to clean and brighten it and then apply a second coat of stain. I have your Restore-A-Deck kit. After applying the step 1 cleaner, can I wait a day, wet, and then do the step 2 brightener? Or, must I do it right away? Thanks, PK

    You should brighten right after the cleaning.

    I just wanted to say that I used the Restore-a-Deck on my 2 yr old (never been protected ) Pressure treated pine deck earlier this week. Last night I finished up before sunset and the deck looked nice. When I looked at it this morning with the morning sun drying it up I was AMAZED! It looked better than the day it was built. If it looks this good now,I can't wait to see what it looks like after I apply the TWP 1500. Its nice to see results like this when you spend the time to research a product and work hard to get those results. More to follow. Thanks

    Awesome! Thanks for the post. When applying the TWP make sure to apply evenly and do not over apply. If some stain does not absorb after 40 minutes you can wipe off the excess with a rag. Make sure to follow the directions on the can. It is not hard to apply, just do not want you to think that more is better.
