    We built a new deck 3 years ago, and let time get away and are just now going to stain it for the first time.  We have very little traffic on the deck so it doesn't have but surface dirt.  Would a light power washing be sufficient to clean before staining? Also what is the difference between the 100 and 1500 series stain?

      You will need the Gemini Kit while pressure washing. Difference between the stains is VOCs and what is allowed your state.

    my deck is six years old cedar, I power washed and sanded   three times already and try different   products   that been highly recommended newer get good results they were all oil base now I am   recommended to try water based semi solid product. my deck is again sand and washed and ready could you please share your opinion and lead PS; my deck exposed to sun all day

      Don't use a water-based semi-solid, it would look like a paint. The best option is TWP 100 or 1500 Series. Easy to maintain by cleaning/staining every 2-3 years and shows the natural wood grain.

      No stain will last more than 2-3 years on a deck so you want one that penetrates and can be cleaned and recoated when needed.

    How do you wait between applying cleaner and brighter and when can you re stain?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 07/19/2022
      You brighten right after the cleaner. Stain 48 hours later.

        What is the maximum time to apply the brightener after the cleaner?  My deck is just under 600 square feet.  Does the wood need to be wet with cleaner before applying the brightener? How long would it take to apply the cleaner using a pump sprayer (average)?

          TWP Stains · 10/08/2022
          Do it right after cleaning while the wood is wet. No idea how long it will take you to do the prep process. Tha varies based on experience, etc.

    Do you have a link to where I can just buy the cleaner? I have plenty of brightener left over for a stretch of fence, but just need the cleaner. I can't seem to find that by itself. It used to be sold in a red and white RAD bag that would mix and make 5 gallons.

    I just order 1500series . My deck is 4 months old and one page on your site says to use the restore a deck kit to clean but the restore page itself talks about using to remove dirt, mold , mildew and graying in which my deck has none of the above. Do I need to prep with this step an not?

      Yes, you must prep and yes you have oxidation to remove and mill glaze.

      No, but pre-wet them and rinse while working so soap suds and dirt does not stick to the railings.

    Hello, I have a cedar TWP semi-transparent stained deck that was applied about 2 years ago. I recently had some of the cedar boards replaced and would like to apply the new semi-solid (Cabin Fever color) product. Is the Restore-A-Deck Kit an appropriate preparation prior to applying the semi-solid product? How long should I allow the new cedar boards to dry before the kit restoration and application of the semi-solid stain? Thank you!  Larry, Austin, TX

    Hi, We live in Ontario, Canada and we have a new composite deck built in June 2021. Above the composite deck we have a pergola and we have privacy shutters on both sides of the deck.  The contractor used cedar wood for the pergola and shutters.  The cedar wood has aged and looks grey after almost one year.  We want to stain it this year and have started to clean some of the cedar using Behr All-in-one cleaner but it was very labour intensive (we are both seniors) especially for the top of the pergola. The Behr instructions said you need to scrub off the solutions using a brittle brush.  Then we came across the RAD product and it looks like it doesn't need any scrubbing, just pressure wash.  Is this correct understanding?  If so, we have further questions:
    1) can we apply RAD again on the Behr cleaned wood? 
    2) will the cleaner and brightener damage the composite deck and the aluminum deck railing with glass insert?
    3) what is the best way/method to clean the top of the pergola?
    4) which way is easier/better to stain the pergola, brush or spray ?
    5) should we sand the cedar before cleaning? 
    6) I read somewhere it says if the wood was not stained after cleaning for longer than 14 days, then it needs to repeat the cleaning and brightening process again, is that true? 

    Attached is a picture of the pergola and shutters, it has been raining since last night so the wood is wet and doesn't appear grey but it is grey when dried.  Thank you so much for your help!

      1. Yes.
      2. They will not.
      3. Pressure wash on a ladder. Might want to hire it down.
      4. Stain pad or brush.
      5. No need.
      6. If you wait too long then it may gray again creating a need to redo the prep.
