I'm very satisfied with my result, after many days of research I found this product which I did not know that existed. Easy to apply, used garden pump and a dollar brush.

    I was staining my deck and a few large drops of the TWP 100 dark oak got on the concrete. It's been about 3 weeks and I've tried everything to remove it, any suggestions?

      Xylene works. I had the same issue. You can pick up Xylene at most hardware and paint stores. It’s a hazardous chemical so make sure you use chemical resistant gloves. Don’t touch it with bare skin.

    My rough sawn cedar house needs restaining. I used TWP 100 on my deck last year and I love it. Can I use it on the house without cleaning the cedar? In the past I have always restained over the existing stain. I have always used semi-transparent oil based stain.

      You have to remove the current stain when switching brands.

    Sanded and brightened/cleaned, then applied TWP prairie gray to my deck late last summer which turned out great. I have some extra from my 5 gallon bucket, was thinking I could add another coat this spring. Is this a possibility? Would I just do a cleaning solution, let it dry, then add another coat on top? Or would I have to start over completely with stripping and reapplying? Thanks in advance! - Nick in Minnesota

    I have 10x40' deck Pressure Treated wood built last fall and am wondering if I need to wait a year to stain the deck? Also, how many gal will I need for 10x40? I do understand I will need to powerwashj, brighten then stain. For color I'm looking at Honeytone. Do you have this color for 5 gal?

    The manufacturer of my pavilion said they use 1-1 ratio of pecan and rustic oak. Is there a way to order that or do I need to order the same amount of both and mix it myself? Thanks.

      TWP Stains · 12/30/2020
      You would have to mix it yourself as we do not custom mix.

    Is there a method to match color of (stripped&brightened) weathered 8 year old pine to patched boards. I have two boards on my deck that were replaced with new treated pine and before staining would like to get them closer to looking like the old boards. I've read vinegar, salt, and nails make a good recipe for darkening new wood.
    Advice please. Thanks

      Sorry, but no, it is not possible to have new wood match older wood. The new wood is less absorbent so it will stain lighter in color. Next time you do it in a few years it will blend.

    Several questions - could you please answer all and be specific. Have powerwashed, and used the stripper and brightener. Now waiting on weather, before applying TWP 103.

    How long can we wait to stain until having to redo brightener?

    How long does deck have to be dry before applying TWP 103? We are getting intermittent rain, or very heavy dew.

    What temp range can the stain be applied and dry? Doing wet on wet application (I understand 20-60 minutes between coats).

    How long does deck need to dry (in 50-60 deg F temp) before it can handle rain?

    We are siding with rough sawn cedar this winter in Iowa, new construction, and want a white pickled look with cedar grain showing through. Is the seafoam semi solid stain you offer our best option? Is it available now ? Thank you, Lin Mullenneaux

      Only the semi-solid would offer a color similar to that:

      It will not be available for another month or so.

    I have a four/five year old deck that was originally coated with your TWP 100 Series stain. This week I sanded and re-applied this same TWP 100 Series product but ran out of stain after a solid two coats on most of the deck. However, the rest of the deck has only one to one and a half coats. I wanted to Purchase additional product and top-coat the whole deck to even it out. Naturally the TWP 100 Series product will take a week to receive and there would be a two week span between applications.

      No, it will not cure and dry correctly at this point. Best to wait until next year, do a light prep, and stain all then.

        I was wanting reapplying as well. I recently stained my new rough cut cypress columns in dark oak 3 weeks ago and loved the color. This pass week I noticed the color has lighten from dark brown to a red mahogany. I was wanting to put on another coat to darken the color of columns, but after reading this question and TWP answer I guess it's out of the question.
        Why have my columns lighten so quickly? I mixed stain very well with drill paint mixer. I apply stain in good weather conditions and as directed.

          Color after curing is based on the wood type and age.

    I need a tan color stain for trim purposes. The rest of the project for the cedar siding will be redwood 102. Any chance you have a similar color or recommend a way to get something close from your company. I may have to get a non transparent type in order to get the color I am looking for.

      Sorry but no, TWP does not come in a tan color.

    I have a 3 story deck. Pic attached. I’ve been very pleased with Rustic 116. The color is great and I’ve gotten three good years out of the last application. I will be doing a re-coat next spring. Between my deck and boardwalk, I will need 20-25 gallons. Do you do bulk discounts? My local ACE that carries your product won’t.

      No, we do not discount at that volume.

    I am preparing to re-stain my fence. I have a full 5-gallon unopened pail of TWP 100 left from six years ago, stored in a cool cellar. Do you think it would still be okay to use? It would be one of three that I will need to do the job. Thank you!

    I have been reading the questions and answers and a bit confused. On the site, one of the application methods is spraying it on but in comments, it says it is too thick to spray - which is it? On the site above it says 2 coats but comments say one coat - which is it? Have a older deck that the previous owners painted. It is peeling up and think with a pressure washer, we can get most if not all of it removed. The Brightener- Cleaner guessing would need to be used since the Wood is quite grey where I can see it - is this the only product that works with the 100 series - can’t find it locally so just asking.

    I am in the beginning stages of planning for a 6’ cedar privacy fence. The pickets will be rough sawn and “good” side facing in. The rails will likely be smooth and on the exterior. Would it be advisable to stain the “good” side initially while allowing portions of the exterior to fully dry and allow the wood to breath.

    Hello, I would like to apply TWP 100 - Prairie Grey 106 to an old deck. 1st, is it more of a redish tint? 2nd, is there a cheap pressure pump sprayer I can use to apply the 1st coat? Something like a 2 gal garden spayer you find at HomeDepot or Lowes? 3rd, what kind of pad should I use for the second (wet-on-wet) coat? Thanks folks!

    I have a 20 year old Cedar deck, almost at the end of its life. Going to try and get a few more years out of it. Been using Ready Seal Medium Red for the last 14 years, and it has been good, but I thought I would try something different just for fun. TWP 116 Rustic (Nebraska, full sun). Need to replace a few boards. If I decided to use Green Treated lumber instead of Cedar, would there be much of a mismatch with the Rustic color between the two types of lumber? Deck only has a few more years in it and treated is half the price of Cedar here.

      New boards will not match older boards as they are less absorbent and will stain lighter in color no matter the wood type.
