Question: How do we prep the deck for the re-stain? Do we have to strip 1st coat of TWP 100 to re-stain with same TWP 100 color? If so, why?
I have a 14 year old Mahogany deck and have stained it every year with Cabots Mahogany Flame and switch to your TWP 1502 350VOC the last two years. I liked to strip the deck this year an apply 1502 again. What do you recommend? Process? How many coats of 1502?
My deck was previously coated with Behr Premium Solid Color Deck Stain. Will the Restore-A-Deck Stripper with a pump sprayer remove this?
I have a 15 yr old pressure treated pine deck that has some parts that were stained with a semi-transparent Behr oil stain when the deck was new. Most of it was not stained at all or sealed in any way. Should I use the stripper only on the parts that were stained and the cleaner on the remainder or use the stripper on everything? I am especially wondering about the portion that is under a roof and therefore has received less weathering. Will the stripper be too harsh on wood that has never been stained or sealed?
I have a deck that has white acrylic latex paint on the rails and dark gray latex paint on floor. The paint is peeling on the floor pretty badly. The white paint on the railing seems to be adhering to the wood but is very stained with black mildew. I would like to refinish.
What would be the best preparation and finish application. I like the white solid color for the railing. I would like to go back with a lighter gray/taupe for the floor.
I have just replaced my deck with new cedar 2x6 boards and hired a guy to stain it. He used TWC 207 Butternut. It is very uneven and hasn't dried in over a week.Some areas are ok but the knots and hard part of the wood is still tacky. Can ou please recommend what is necessary to strip and reapply. After reading your product bulletins, It appears that the wrong choice was made or missapplied. Please advise.
