    Our 12mo old deck is cleaned and ready to be stained, but we got almost 2 inches of rain this past weekend. How long do we have to wait for the wood to dry out to stain it?

    My privacy fence is 20 years old.  I have only used TWP over the years.  I have applied TWP four or five times.  All the wood is in good condition, still looks great.  Not sure which of your two stains to use?  Also, are there any local distributors in the Indianapolis area?

    What type of water repellent is in your stain I’m putting a hot tub on my deck and would like to coat it to help protect it

      TWP is a semi-transparent stain that sheds water. It is not just a "water repellent" as it provides mildew, water, and sun protection all in one.

      Gemini is a Cleaner and Brighener Kit and the RAD is a Stripper and Brightener Kit. Which to use depends on your current condition?

      Let it dry and cure out but sounds like you over-applied. It will cure but it may take a few days or longer.

    My  prep work on porch is almost complete. I used the stripper with both additives and the brightener.  Unfortunately, due to weather it’s been 3 weeks since that was completed.I have enough of the brightener for another ‘shot’ however I do not the cleaner and time is of the essence as I’m having some major adjacent landscaping done in a week.   It’s a loaded question, but is there an alternative product I can use to clean/rinse off the porch and railing.I started this project in ample time for a normal year, unfortunately this is unpredictable weather this summer not seen for over 15 years.Help!

      Give it a good pressure wash with water, apply the brightener, rinse well. You will be okay.

    Can TWP be used to seal/protect charred cedar (aka shou sugi ban)? If so which specific product do you recommend? I’ve done sample tests with tung oil, mineax wood hardener and water based poly and the tung worked best (after 2 months in outside in south facing sun and rain) but I’m concerned about the longevity of tung oil. My friend recommended TWP. Thanks

      Yes, you can use it as long as the wood is porous. Try the TWP 1500 Series in Honeytone color.

    Follow up from Barney——-what do you mean by wet on wet? I assume you mean that If you need 2nd coat you must do it while stain is wet??    Barney

    I have redwood deck in Colorado that has been stained about every two years with transparent stain that is no longer available.Deck is about 9 years old and good shape.has redwood stain on now.is 100 series good enough or do I need 1500 series? Looks like your redwood may be quite Red. From pictures looks like Rustic may be good choice. Looking to go with semi transparent this time???Barney

    Is ok to apply Dark Oak 100 with a roller?

      Stain pads and brushes are better than rollers. Rollers can splatter.

    Deck is 6 years old pressure treated pine. TWP 100 Pecan applied 5 years ago. Has had several cleanings and color is fading on deck located outside. The deck under roof still looks great.Time for a deep clean and restain. Going back with same product in Tennessee. What cleaning and brightening kit do you suggest? Not sure if I have to strip or not. Thank you.

    If you don’t strip but do prep with kit, can you use a different color if you don’t mind a possible non uniform color outcome?

      Only if the current stain is TWP. Also, stripping is just as easy as cleaning.
