will this stain work over an existing color on an older deck. I was hoping to have a solid color stain to hide some of the imperfections in an older deck. This product got great reviews so I hope it will. i would be using the cape cod gray.

Hello, TWP does not come in a solid color. it also cannot be applied over top of a different brand of stain. You would need to remove the old coating first.

We stained our new deck with TWP 100, Rustic, in October 2012. We need to re-stain with the same color now. Should we plan on applying one coat of the stain or two? Will the Gemini Restore-A-Deck kit remove much of the old stain?

Since it has been 4 years you should apply two light coats. The Gemini Restore Kit will remove most after 4 years for the horizontals. Vertical areas will most likely only need one coat.

I have a redwood deck that is pretty new (built 7 months ago). We let it weather and are now going to clean and stain. We plan to use the restore-a-deck combo cleaner and brightener.

Question is- if we want to basically just bring out the natural beauty of the original redwood, which TWP stain will best help us accomplish that?

Honeytone is the lightest tint. We sell samples for you to test on our site.


That's a vague response, and purchasing samples is exactly what I am trying to do...which is why I asked the question. Do you at least have a recommendation on TWP 100 vs. TWP 1500?

You were not in the sample page so we did not know you were aware of the samples. That is why we suggested them. As to which series to use. It depends on your state? If the 100 is allowed in your state, then use the 100. If not, the 1500 will be needed. It varies based on state VOC laws.

I noticed that your technical info gives a coverage rate of 100-200 square feet per gallon. Does that mean 100-200 sq.ft. per coat -- or is that for the required two coats? I'm doing a deck and railings totaling about 650 sq.ft. and am wondering how much stain to buy. (Deck is weathered and neglected about 25 yrs. old -- not smooth, new wood, so stain will probably really soak in.)

First coat applies at 150-200 sq feet while the second coat applies at 200-300 sq. feet. It averages 100-150 sq. feet for 2 coats. You will nee 6-7 gallons for the two coats.

You should be able to walk on it anywhere from 4-24 hours under normal weather conditions but since it is bamboo, it may take longer to set up. The 100 Series is not designed for bamboo so not sure how long it will last. You can just clean and reapply when it starts to fade.

I have stripped and sanded my old deck which is not in very good condition (has a lot of grooves. Since I have sanded it do I need to wait for it to cure like new wood? Also, it was painted white. It was impossible for me to get paint out of hairline cracks. They don't look bad now, but will they show up more after using TWP? I already cleaned part of the deck with bleach and soap. Will this impair absorption? Can I use Oxyclean on the remainder of the deck and just buy the brightner? My house is white with black shutters so I really like the natural grey color but I don't want the solids in your grey color. If I use your clear how often will I need to recoat since I won't have UV protection? My deck is 191 square foot which should be 2 gallons but your calculator shows three. Which is correct? I don't see where shipping charges are estimated. I live in Tennessee. What would be the estimated shipping on 2 gallons? If I bought the 5 gallon to save money would it last until next time?

The paint will show under the TWP. Best to prep now with the Gemini Restore Kit if you want to use the TWP not bleach. If you use the clear it will gray naturally and you will need to redo every 2 years. 3 gallons if you do 2 coats would be normal. Shipping costs are at checkout once you enter a state and zip code.

Will this impair absorption? Can I use Oxyclean on the remainder of the deck and just buy the brightner? My house is white with black shutters so I really like the natural grey color but I don't want the solids in your grey color. If I use your clear how often will I need to recoat since I won't have UV protection? My deck is 191 square foot which should be 2 gallons but your calculator shows three. Which is correct? I don't see where shipping charges are estimated. I live in Tennessee. What would be the estimated shipping on 2 gallons? If I bought the 5 gallon to save money would it last until next time?

I am considering TWP 100 for a 12-year-old heart redwood deck that is holding up well. I've used the Sikkens SRD 250 Natural the last two applications. Does the TWP 100 come in a Natural? What would be the most comparable color? Also, I assume I'll have to strip, clean, brighten beforehand, correct? I live in Napa area of California. How many years can I expect the treatment to last? (I'm having the TWP 100 sent to a friend in Nevada.)

TWP 100 does not come in a Natural but the TWP 1500 does and that is allowed in CA while the 100 Series is not so you will need the 1500 Series. TWP needs to be reapplied every 2-3 years on average.

I put two coats of stain on some rough sawn cedar, wet on wet. 24 hours later the wood feels a bit oily. Will that feeling go away or is this normal? Is this due to the second coat not drying fully? There was no residue to wipe off from the second coat.

It has not fully cured. It will go away shortly.

If I apply several coats 'wet on tacky' and even a 3rd coat (either over the dried product or the tacky 2nd coat (if you're following me) - my goal is to produce a satin or semi-gloss shine. will that work?
secondly, i have a customer who's deck i have stained for many years with Sikkens SRD. I would like to switch over and try the 100 series. Can i wash or scuff sand the Sikkens and go over with 100 or do i need to remove the the old Sikkens entirely?

Gemini, the manufacturer of IPE has stated to us that TWP is not designed for exotic hardwoods. Many people still use it with good results but the manufacturer will not warranty or suggest the use of it on IPE. It is more of an issue with the IPE itself being so dense that stains may have a hard time penetrating.

The cedartone picture above does not do justice in how beautiful this stain appears in the sunlight on a recently stained deck. When I powerwashed decks for a living in the late 90s, I would powerwash a deck, sand the railings and deck, repound / replace nails, and then stain the railings first with 2 coats. I would then stain the deck with 2 coats. it appears much darker than normal but after about 2 weeks, the stain lightens to a beautiful golden hue. Every customer loved it. To get this you have to powerwash the deck and railings completely and allow to dry.

One of the things I want to do is get the panels really dark in the nooks and crannies of the OSB and then do a light sanding on the very tops to bring out some of the wood grain. Then I would like to clear coat it with an exterior urethane.

Solid color or semi transparent
Yes, there was at least an inch of heavy pigment at the bottom of the can and I was very careful to ensure it was completely mixed in. The stain went on fine over new WRC that had been aged two months in place, cleaned and brightened with restore-a-deck, and dried 72 hours in low humidity no dew weather. But now I have a deck that looks painted. If I wanted a painted look I would not have gone to the extra effort and expense to get WRC.
