    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 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?

    Use the Gemini Restore Kit for the prep.

    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!

    Yes on waiting:

    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.

    Yes you can apply the coat of stain to the wood. It is best to use the Gemini when reapplying the TWP for the prep as the new coat will adhere better. When not reapplying try just cleaning with a little bit of soapy water and a soft push broom to remove dirt.

    Roberto:
    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?

    Not sure on how to remove the grease or the burnt metal. Deck cleaners will not remove it.

    Susan A,:
    We have a 19 year old cedar deck in Menomonie, WI.Some areas full sun, some part day sun. Have used Cabot's Australian Timber Oil in honey teak in the past, last application 3 years ago. Deck boards have some cracking and most of Cabot's has worn off. Is best way to sand with deck sander to smooth out boards, then clean and brighten before using TWP? Any other advice?

    You can sand but you might want to use the Restore A Deck Stripper first. Sand after, than use the brightener.

    We have used power washer to remove all old stain on 2 year old cedar deck.which was only applied last summer and peeled very badly.
    Do we still need to strip? d
    Do we use your cleaner and brightener before staining. the deck gets full afternoon sun.
    Will this cause a problem when staining?
    We don't want to have to go through this process every year so we want to do it right.

    You need to strip and brighten for the prep. You do not need the cleaner,

    You need to remove the SW first. Typically done with the Restore A Deck stripper and possibly some sanding. Use the Restore A Deck Brightener when finished. This will prep for the TWP.

    Brenda Gilpin:
    My new Cedar fence (around my artifical wood deck) is 20' x 10' x 7' (both sides of the fence needs to be cleaned, brightened and sealed with PECAN TWP. What do I really need to do and how much of each item do I need to order?

    It has been 2 months since the fence was completed.

    Please respond to my email address.

    Have already pressure washed a 10 X 12 deck which is mostly shaded and a 15 X16 one which is in the sun. We are in SE Michigan. The decks are pressure treated pine. Is additional prep required before staining with TWP 100 series?

    You should be good to stain with the 100 Series.

    Will these products damage the metal balusters on the deck? I'm going to try to protect them as best as possible but they may be exposed to a little bit at times.

    Thank you

    It should not have any reaction but best to test first.
