    Hello I stained my deck 3 years ago with TWP stain not sure what number. I think it is time to do it again but I am not sure should I only clean and brighten and reapply the stain? On the railing there are some black stripes not sure if did something wrong while applying the stain.[/quote]
    You should be okay with using the Gemini Restore Kit and pressure washing for the prep.

    Also in 2013, you ordered the 1530 Natural color.

    Must I use this product even with power washing the deck? I have 4 year old 1500 on there now.

    Yes, you use the kit while pressure washing. Pressure washing by itself is not adequate and can damage the wood.

    Do you sell samples of restore-a-deck? I ordered stain samples and want to clean a sample of the deck just like the entire deck will be cleaned prior to application of the stain.

    We do not sell samples of the Restore a Deck.

    Paul Landraitis:
    I used TWP 101 Cedartone Natural on a new cedar pressure treated wood deck 7 years ago. It's held up very well in protected areas, worn and even peeled in a few sunny / traffic areas. It sounds like I could use the Gemini restore-a-deck instead of stripping everything if I re-apply TWP Cedartone. Is that right?

    Yes, you can use this for the prep.

    We have 3 decks pressure treated lumber used
    One deck is 10 yrs one is 8 yrs and one is 5 yrs
    All of them connect to each other
    We used defy and it isn't holding up
    We live by water ... there is mold and mildew and no peeling but the stain has faded .
    What do you recommend to re seal it and the best way to do so

    Hello, the Defy will need to be removed before using the TWP. Use the Stripper Kit and pressure washer for this: https://www.twpstain.com/restore-a-deck-stripper-brightener-kit-detail

    Once removed, use the TWP 1500 or the 100 Series.

    Will the cleaner/brightner be harmful to plants/shrubs? Thank you, Ed

    If you prewet the plants and rinse well when done, you will not have any issues.

    I want to stain my whole deck ( 1/2 has never been stained and was added 1 yr ago and the other half was stained w/ twp aprox 4 yrs ago) so it will all match. Do I use the cleaner, brightner and stripper( on the faded already stained part) Please tell me I do not have to sand.

    Restore A Deck Stripper and Brightener for the older half and Gemini Cleaner and Brightener for the newer half.

    The Gemini Kit is designed for prepping when reapplying the TWP, not just for general cleaning as it may remove some of the current stain. This is normal for prep.

    Best to put the umbrella back in the same spot if not reapplying the TWP.[/quote]

    Thanks for clarifying the Kit, was very worried because of the last time (but i did use a deck brush to help it clean which I don't think I will do this year). Since i have cleaned everything very well (sponge and soapy water all surfaces) can I just use a sprayer to apply part 1, let it sit as recommended and then use sprayer to apply part 2, then rinse - so no scrubbing at all to lessen stain removal?
    Also, should I use it more dilutated (i read somewhere that for maintenance coat use at half strength if no issues - and since the only issue i have it very isolated to 2 handrail top boards that are 14 and 20 feet long everything else but under umbrella looked good)?

    Yes you can do that. Use at 4-6 oz per gallon of water.
