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.
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
Trying to find TWP in Minnesota. The previous painter used TWP 101 cedar tone many years ago and I want to use the same!
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
During a recent remodel, my contractor used TWP-100 to seal plywood flooring since the framing above it was postponed a few months and the plywood was open to the weather.
I want to paint the floor, rather than stain it - so what prep would you recommend to remove your product well enough for the plywood to accept Benjamin Moore porch paint?
I used this restore a deck and so far it is working great, but need to prep a few stubborn spots, can I purchase just the 1st step
I have a WRC dock stained with 2 coats of TWP 105 applied wet on wet. The stain is still in good shape but starting to look thin. I want to re-stain with more 105 before the current stain starts to fail. What do you recommend I do/use for prep in this situation?
Just had a redwood deck installed. We live in Colorado where the sun is very intense. What would the proper timeframe be before applying the TWP stain - still the 4 months minimum / 12 months maximum? Thanks!
Hi, I have cedar deck that I stained with TPW 1501 last year. It looked awesome and perfomred well through the PA winter. Althogh it still pefromed well, the deck became very dirty over the last year and when I called to order more stain, the lady on the phone said to use the restore a deck at a lesser strength to not take the stain up. I used it at half strength and now most of the stain is gone. There are spots where it is not. is it okay to restain as is? what can I use in the future to just clean the dek without having to take the stain off? Thank you.
I just finished building a rough sawn douglas fir porch cover with my contractor. Unfortunately, when he cut the bolts with the grinding wheel, it left a residue of either burnt metal (or the aluminum oxide grinding disc dust). He came back and sandblasted it, but some of it, and a little bit of grease from the grading chains at the saw mill remain. Any suggestions?
