    I just received my stain to add maintenance coat to my fence with previous 1500 stain on it.
    I mistakenly ordered Strip and Brightener rather than Clean and Brightener. I don't want to return it as I am planning to stain this next week. Is there some other homemade cleaner solution i could make up before applying Brightener? Thank you

      No, there is not a homemade cleaner that will work.

    Hi.... I want to do my deck. I have railings and framing under the deck that I don't want to be stripped and are actually stained in a different color. Under the deck is also a concrete pad... a lower patio. There is also a painted wooden ceiling - with gaps for drainage - under the deck and forming the ceiling for the area above the patio. So with all this going on is it likely that either the other stained wood (the railings and framing), or the concrete, and/or the painted ceiling will be damaged from the sprayed on Restore-A-Deck process? Wondering if I should just sand the deck instead....

      The prep will not harm paint.

        Thanks. 1. Will it harm concrete or vinyl? 2. Most importantly, since the posts and railings are a different stain color, made of wood, and in good condition, should I avoid getting any of the RAD material on these surfaces....

        Last - on the website I can't find any info on "process." Is a Pressure washer necessary?

        Thanks again.

          1. No.
          2. It should not be an issue unless the coating is failing or peeling.

          It helps to pressure washer, yes.

    This will be my 3rd time staining my deck with the TWP 100 series. In the past I have prepped it with this kit, is it suggested that you use the kit each time you are planning to recoat the stain?

    I have ordered this kit. My deck has never been treated so it's bare cedar (about 4 years old). How long between cleaning and brightening and how long after brightening and staining? Also, my deck is about 4' above the ground do I need to protect the house siding (painted wood) from the cleaner/brightener running down the house under the deck? Thanks

      You clean and brighten the same day. You stain 48 hours. Directions are on the containers. It will not harm the paint on the house.

    Dear TWP,
    I am a contractor. I have a client with a cypress pergola. Exposed to the sun and rain.
    This structure has a ceiling, exposed eves and support posts, all of cypress construction.
    Upon new construction three years ago all of these surfaces received one coat of your 100 Clear product.
    Now the lower surfaces that see direct UV and rain are grayed and mildewed. The upper surfaces and ceiling are still natural colored but with heavy mildew growth.
    My job is to refinish all surfaces and try to match the heavily weathered with the lightly weathered surfaces.
    Please give me a protocol using your products to achieve this goal.
    Thank you,

    I have 25+year old deck that was untouched for at least 19 years since we moved in. Yesterday I did power wash it and day/ night difference revealed. It is now very light natural wood color. I plan to sand some spots, railing. Do I need any to prep it? It has no stains and feels as raw wood. I plan to use 1500 two stain.
    thank you Jan

    I have a few dry days coming in the forecast and hoping to fit in some deck staining. Questions.

    - Can the cleaner and brightener be used back to back, or should a period of time be between the two?

    -How of long of drying period is needed for the wood to dry after it is cleaned, and before staining?

    How do you know if your deck only needs the 'Restore-A-Deck' Cleaner/Brightener product or if it needs the Stripper/Brightener?

      You have 116 Rustic in the picture, not 1516 Rustic. Rustic and Rustic Oak are the same things.

    How long do the Step 1 (cleaner) and Step 2 (brightener) stay good for? I first used about 4 years ago and still have some left, will it still be effective?

      If in powder form, they are still good.

    I have a 5 year old deck that we put twp on originally and its time to re-stain. We are going to use the same twp color as before. Should I use RAD or stripper/brightener first?

    Hello I was directed to purchase a cleaning kit, which I did and is being shipped but after reviewing more details on this site it looks like I should have bought the strip kit instead. Can you confirm. I have a old deck that has not been stained in 6+ years. Its green, black, but also has some old stain on it.
    Can the cleaning kit help remove any old stain or do i need to order the strip kit instead.

      TWP Stains · 05/07/2020
      Yes, use the Stripper and Brightener kit.

    We are planning to re-stain our cedar siding using the same semi-solid stain used approximately 9-10 years ago (prior to our purchase of home). We need to prep/ clean the wood first. Is RAD a good choice for cedar siding? Do we just follow the same directions as for a deck - i.e. mixing ratio, sprayer application, etc.? Thanks

      TWP Stains · 05/03/2020
      Yes, you can use the RAD for prepping siding. Same steps.

    I have fir railings on an Azek deck and some PVC posts, will this product damage the PVC posts or deck?

      No, it should not.

        One follow-up, the fir railings have never been treated, were done just before the winter, and are starting to gray and have some black spots (possible mold?). I'm looking at this product to clean it up, instead of sanding with probably 100grit, before treating with likely TWP101. My questions are, can I use this instead of sanding? If so, would there be any benefit of sanding after using this product before treatment?

    I am trying to strip and stain my deck with the 1500 series stain. I was planning on using the deck stripper and brightener kit. Do I also have to use a deck cleaner as well? What order would I complete the cleaning aspect of it then? I know I would use the deck stripper before the brightener but what about the cleaner? What step would that be?

    I have a cedar railing that I stained last summer with TWP 100 . It was 1 year old when I did it. I used a deck cleaner and a wood brightener ( Citralic Brightner and Neutralizer) before applying the TWP 100. This year after the snow melted this is what im seeing Yuk! What do you think went wrong?
    The vertical wood looks beautiful but the horizontal will probably have to be sanded off?
