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.

    We are currently in the process of building our deck with treated pine. Is there anything we would need to put down on the wood before staining it with the TWP100? I'm new to this and I don't want to mess up the process.
    We will also be attaching this deck to a pre-existing deck around our pool that was stained, then painted. I will be pressure washing & sanding the paint off of that section. Can I use this same product so that the new deck will flow into the old deck? If so, is there anything else I need to do to prepare the 'old' deck?

    We are in the process of building an event venue in North carolina near the South carolina border. The company is recommending your 100 series. Questions;
    1) we are building close to a lake. Why are some states not allowing your 100 series product and is it harmful to water sources/ lakes?
    2) If north carolina regulates your product (VOC) in the future, do we have another compatible option?
    3)The building will be 84' x 90' any recommendation on how to apply it wet on wet?
    4) Can it be applied by spray?
    5) Is there a discount if purchased in bulk to accommodate this sized of a building as well as a small cabin to be also built on site?

    Thank you
    Mark Schingen

      1. Certain states have lower VOC laws that do not allow the 100 Series. The TWP is not harmful to water when dry but you cannot spill it into the water when in liquid form.
      2. NC does not have any potential VOC changes on the horizon but if they did change, use the TWP 1500 Series.
      3. You do not apply two coats to new wood. See this for new wood tips:
      4. Yes, but you will have to back wiped.
      5. Sorry but no.

    We would be using it for a deck, western red cedar. We live in S. California Mountains, 5,000 foot elevation, snow, occasional wet snow, temperature range 10℉ to 105℉. Would the TWP100 be a good choice?

    I have a 600sf all Cypress porch that I just got finished pressure washing to make the boards look new. What product should I use, how much, and how long should I let the wood drive before applying?

      TWP Stains · 08/30/2019
      Which product to stain with depends on where you live? How much you need depends on the age of the wood? Let dry for at least 48 hours before applying.

          About 5-6 gallons for the two coats applied wet on wet. Use the TWP 100 Series.

    If applied correctly and prepped correctly, what is the expected time of needing to re-stain with using twp100 ?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 08/29/2019
      2-3 years is normal for a deck.

    I have a new pressure treated wood deck, it has weathered now for about 6 months. I live in SC, my deck gets a lot of afternoon sun. If I use twp 100 series stain, should it be a semi oil based stain and do I need to apply a brightner and or deck restore. Thank you Gary

    Using a Graco Painter Plus Airless Sprayer, would a 311 tip work best with TWP 100. Or should I get a bigger tip?

      TWP Stains · 08/05/2019
      Sorry, but we are not familiar with their tips. Any fan tip should work. Wider is easier.

    My deck was previously stained with Thompson Waterseal (the pic is after a year). I'm interested in your products but unsure where to even start to correct the current state of my deck (recommendations to clean/repair)? I live in the Atlanta, Ga area which series do you recommend 1500 or 100? Thanks!

    I am in the process of installing a new 240 square foot cedar deck. I want to have a natural look and preserve it as long as possible. Why do you recommend and should I apply it to all faces prior to installing the top deck boards?

    I stained my deck with TWP100 on Sunday 07/07/2019. I used all 5 gallons on one coat. Ordered more on Monday 07/08. Can I apply a second coat as soon as the next 5 gallons arrives? Any special process before applying a second coat of TWP100?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 07/10/2019
      NO, you should not do this. TWP is to applied wet on wet if doing a second coat, not wet on dry. This could lead to over application and shiny spots. You can do a light cleaning and a light coat in the late Fall or early Spring of next year.

    What happens or should I do if it rains before the 48 hr recommended dry time?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 07/06/2019
      It typically can take a rain 12-24 hours after application without issue.

    We will be staining our 450 sf tight knot cedar deck with TWP 103 Dark Oak this July after 11 months of weathering. We plan to clean and brighten with the Gemini RAD kit.

    -Is just one coat needed at this time, and if so, will 3 gallons (450/200 = 2.25) be sufficient to ensure we do not run out?

    We are currently building an additional 400 sf deck which will be ready to stain July 2020. At that time we plan to apply a maintenance coat on the 450 sf and the first coat on the 400 sf. We will clean and brighten the new 400 sf section.

    -Can/should we use the Gemini cleaner on the 450 sf receiving the 1-year maintenance coat?
    -Will just one coat be necessary for the 450 sf maintenance coat?
    -Provided just one coat is needed on both sections, will 5 gallons (850/200 = 4.25) be sufficient to ensure we do not run out?
    -Is there a time limit on the stain sample $15 rebate? I purchased 3 TWP samples in August 2018 and plan to use it to purchase the 5 gallons in summer of 2020.

    Thanks for your help!

      3 gallons should be enough for 1 coat and 450 sq feet. Use the Gemini Kit for maintenance coats. 5-gallons may not cover 850 sq feet. No time limit on sample rebates.

        Thanks again! We'll probably get 6 gallons next year just to be safe.

          Update: I finished prepping and staining the first 410 sf (450 was a miscalculation). I am very pleased with the results and have attached before, during and after pictures. I followed these steps:

          - Used Gemini cleaner and brightener to remove dirt and gray oxidization with pressure washer – there was a lot of gray so it took an evening and morning (deck remained wet overnight)
          - Waited 53 hours over two sunny days in the 70’s/80’s (humidity a bit high in the 70’s/80’s as well)
          - Used stain pad on 3-4 boards at a time, then took a towel and wiped down each board to make sure there was no pooling
          - Stored the remaining stain from 5 gallon container into empty 1 gallon paint canisters and had 3.5 gallons leftover…

          I’m wondering since I only used 1.5 gallons of stain, less than expected assuming 200 sf/gallon, is there a chance I “under-applied” even though I followed the above steps? I was planning to apply a maintenance coat next summer – would there be any benefit to applying it before then since we have very wet, dark winters (we're in Western WA). The new stain container was VERY full when we received it so could it possibly have contained more than 5 gallons?

    I am needing to restain my deck, and wondering if I need to strip away the old stain, or if I can just clean and brighten. I used your 100 Series Pecan color back in 2016. There are some areas that look like it has worn away, and other areas that just look dirty. Attaching a couple of pictures. My posts and vertical surfaces still look good compared to flat areas. Do I need to redo those as well?

    We are building a wood deck using pressure treated hemlock fir I believe. I'm reading that I should not use a solid paint sealant because it will not bond to the wood, is that correct? If so, what are my options for this color of wood? I don't want a dark deck, so would the ceder or pecan work?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 06/23/2019
      Cedar or Pecan would work. TWP is a penetrating semi-transparent wood stain.
