    Looking to stain my brand new Cedar Deck in Colorado, and wondering the best stain to use and what is the best color choice to preserve the natural cedar look. It's approx. 180 sq/ft, is one gallon enough? Thanks!

    When I did the calculator for amount needed it says 2 coats "wet on wet". Do I need two coats and what does wet on wet mean?

    Need to know what I ordered in the past. Just bought 101 TWP Stain. It is to dark brown. Know I accidentally ordered this two years ago and did not use. Then ordered a lighter Cedar Stain. I like the color of the lighter stain. Is there a 100 Cedar Stain? Can you check please so that I can order the lighter stain.

      The only past order we see in your email address is from 2015 and that was for TWP 101 Cedartone. The only lighter tinted color is the 115 Honeytone.

    How do you remove TWP 300 from deck? There are many areas that you can scrap off with your fingernail. Some areas turned black. And after all said and done, is the 1500 series the best stain for the deck floor? Also, which is the best stain for the deck siding which drops down our slope and has a door. It's about 15". Thanks

      You will need to sand off the 300 Series. Use the TWP 1500 for all surfaces.

    I live in Oregon and have an ipe hardwood deck that faces south. Lots of rain and lots of sun. I would like to use the TWP 100 and expect to put on one maintenance coat every year. Can I do this indefinitely or will I have to strip it down and sand it every so often?

    We have a redwood deck that has 4 coats of clear & semi-transparent. These are going to be sanded to bare wood what do you suggest for the 320' seat redwood deck?

      The TWP 100 or TWP 1500 Series would be the correct products.

    We just stained our fence with the rustic stain and it is slightly more red then we wanted. If we came back with another coat of Dark Oak would we get a more brown tone or would it make a crazy color?

      It will not be able to "take" another coat now. Best would be to wait a few months or a year and remove the Rustic if you want to switch colors.

    I have a 4 month old cedar fence. I would like to protect it and stop it from turning gray. I also don't want to change the color of the fence. Which TWP product should I purchase? Thanks

      Unfortunately, what you want to do is not possible. For UV protection from graying, you must have a color/tint in your stain. This will also enhance or change the color of your wood. This is true for all brands of deck stains, not just TWP. The lightest tinted TWP color is Honeytone. See here for some pictures: https://www.twpstain.com/twp-115-honeytone

    15 year old rough sawn waney pine siding that was stained with a Cabot stain about 10 years ago. It didn’t weather well as you can see in the before and after shots.
    I power washed with sodium percolate this spring but was unable to complete the job. You can see how quickly it grayed out.
    I would like to apply the TWP 1515 or TWP 101 this fall. How would you suggest I proceed?
    Thanks Dave

    How do you remove TWP stain spots/drips (Black Walnut) from brick pavers? Mineral spirits did not work. Please advise.

      Try a graffiti remover cleaner and pressure washing. You should find some in the paint department of a local store.

    I built a redwood deck about 6 months ago and it has not been stained previously. I want to protect the wood in some way but I don't want to alter the color too much because it looks great as is. Is there any tint in the TWP 100 series that looks good on redwood or should I go with the clear? Thank you for your help.

    Hi, My painter used TWP-302QD last year (12 mo ago) to do our deck. It already needs to be redone in a part of the deck that gets lots of sun. Previously using the same wood protectant lasted over 2 years. Also, I found a can of TWP1502 used probably over 3-4 years ago. Which one is better for the deck floor? The railings still look great. Our deck is made of brazilian hardware. thanks Jeannette

      The TWP 1500 Series is the proper product for decks, not the 300 series.

    Hello. Our new natural cedar 12x12 ground level wood deck was finished the day before Memorial Day. It has treated structural lumber. The carpenter wants to come back next week to sand it down and put a coat of stain on it. We are not painters. We seek your advice on timing and which product to use. Our desire is to have a not-painted look. We are in MI.

    stripped our older deck. stained it with ceder tone 100 series deck stain. I came up a little short on giving the whole deck a second coat. Can I get a little more stain and finish it in a few days or just leave well enough alone. It looks good as is.

      At this point, it is best to leave as is. If needed, apply a light coat next Spring.

    Greetings, I have an IPE deck that was stained new with TWP 100 Cedar and stained again with the same product after 1 year. Now it has been 2 years and 2/3 of deck is silver/gray with spots of residual stain. Would using the Gemini Restore kit and than stain again with same product work or do I need to sand those stubborn spots showing the second year stain? The exposed deck faces East, hot Utah summers and plenty of snow in winter. Waiting to stain until the second year was an experiment, or being lazy, ha ha.

      Using the Gemini Restore Kit with pressure washing should work for the prep.

    What is the difference between the 1500 series and the 100 series. I have used the 100 series Cedertone in the past with good results. I wonder if I should continue with the 100 or should I switch to the 1500 series.
