    I was planning to do restore deck, cleaner and brightener, but had a rain last night. Should I wait until the deck dries, or is it sill ok on the wet deck?

    If I sand my deck, do I need to apply the restore-a-deck as well? I have a semi-transparent stain on an older deck that is beginning to chip away.

    Hello- can you please help me? My new deck is pressure treated pine, and is about 7 weeks old. HOT weather here in the 90s for a few weeks now. Is the wood okay as is with the TWP 100 series stain? I am confused after I read things on the website. I have a very very good prep wood cleaner at home already, along with a power washer?

    Hello,
    We built this deck in October of 2019 - we are looking to stain and seal it. It is made of AC2 treated pine. Do we need to do any prep work or can we just use the 100 series right away?

    carl again, bamboo fence, can I use the restore-a-deck kit and then apply TWP 200 or 201 SERIES OIL BASE STAIN. Will this help to make the bamboo look bright again. Should I pressure wash first ?
    the fence 5184 sq ft, How many restore kits and how many gals of TWP 200 or 201 is needed?

      Sorry, but no, the TWP 100, 200, or 1500 will not work on Bamboo.

    Hi - returning customer. Three pics: after one season pre-wash; after pressure wash; after cleaner and brightener. Uneven coloration throughout. Boards are under 15%. Can I stain this?

    I think I read in the instructions for the brightener that it needs to be washed down with water for 25-30 minutes after using it. Is that a typo? High or low pressure? If the wood is dark in some areas after it dries, but no old stain left, do I reapply the brightener?

      It should be rinsed for about 20 minutes when down.

        I stripped and brightened per the instructions, but there are some dark areas on the wood after drying (but no stain left). Do I just reapply the brightene again, or leave it and stain it?

    I have a 2 yr old deck. Treated flat boards and cedar spindles and railing. Used Sherwin-Williams Deckstain last yr and have some mold entrapped in wood. Would like to chemically remove mold and old stain-clean deck and restain. What product should I use and what is the process?

    I have a very neglected deck that I want to restore with the 1500 natural stain. It has turned completely gray with lingering spots of old and quite faded redwood stain. Do I use the stripper/brightener followed by the restore-a-deck kit or will that be redundant? Also, will your product remove the gray or will it need to be sanded?

        Additional Info: Most of the deck is over 20 years old. Some of the deck has been repaired and is only 10 years old. The wood has some minor grooves from being pressured washed too hard and the wood likes to turn black when it rains. Last year we also had the deck treated by a company called Seal Smart to help save it. What do you recommend we do to best prep the deck for staining? Thank you for helping us. We really appreciate it.

    I have a brown pressure treated deck it is 2 years old and i would like to apply twp 200 (i am in Canada)
    this would be the first time staining this deck as well as using your product. would i just use cleaner and brighter and then proceed with the stain after 48 hours? any helpful tips? thanks

      TWP Stains · 06/16/2020
      Yes that is correct. Prep with the Gemini Restore Kit and then stain with the TWP 200 Series.

    We just applied full coat of TWP 100 last summer after a full sand down. How should we prep for a restain this year? Do we need to do the Gemini restore a deck? Thanks!

    Does the deck need to dry between step 1 and step 2 or can step 2 be applied to the wet deck?
    By the way, step 1 is amazing!

    Deck received one coat of twp100 last fall. Deck had been previously sanded and then used Gemini restore a deck cleaner / brighter kit. Will be doing a recoating this week. Will be using restore a kit cleaner/ brighter again. Don’t want to use pressure washer. Will a garden hose with a pressure head do the job? Only want to surface clean. I don’t want to remove original coat.

      Yes, that should work. You can dilute the cleaner in half as well to 2-3 oz per gallon of water.

    Last year (2019) I used 1500 Clear (no UV protection) on a dock that had weathered for 5 years and a deck that had weathered for 1 year. Water still beads up on both. Will pressure washing and then applying another coat of 1500 Clear prolong the life of the stain? What prep, if any, do I need to do before applying another coat of 1500 Clear? Thank you.

      Wait until next year to prep and apply. Use the Gemini Restore Kit for the prep.

    I am in the process of staining my cedar fence for the third time with TWP 1500 using the gemini Restore-a-Deck to prep each time and have been very happy with the results. I have a couple of questions:

    1. The cleaner says to mix 6 oz. to one gallon of water. Is this a volume or a weight measurement? The brightener says to mix one cup (8 fluid ounces) to one gallon of water. Both the cleaner and brightener are 2 lb. packages and each makes 5 gallons total. Does this mean I can measure one cup of the cleaner as well, or do i have to weigh it? Standardizing the measurement units would be very helpful.

    2. The TWP has held up so well that when restaining the first half of my fence, the stain was not completely soaking in and was remaining wet for over an hour. I did as directed and tried to wipe off the excess, but am not sure I was very successful. I brushed the stain on this time (used garden sprayer the first time, someone else applied last time). Do you have any recommendations on application to minimize how much I have to wipe off/waste?

    Thanks

      1. Volume. One cup for each will work.
      2. Just apply and back brush right away.
