    I power washed the deck 3 times in 3 days, then removed and sanded the boards on all sides. about 70% of the boards I turned over and used that side for the surface. Most of the screws were not coated and were rusted badly. After removing all the screws I drilled out the holes and filled them with Elmer's wood filler.  I plan to coat 3 sides with a semi transparent stain. After that I will attach the boards to the deck. which series do you think I should use. I don't want to have to stain every year.

      You should not have used wood filler. It will fail and will not “stain” to blend. Only stain the exposed sides. Which series to use depends on where you live?

    After applying the RAD Stripper and brighner and washing away (I power washed after applying stripper and rinsed after applying brihtner), I see residues on the wood while drying. What should I be doing before applying the stain?

          That is oxidation. It typically does not show when stained but you can lightly sand it if you want.

            Did you mean 'it does not show up when stained' or 'it does show when stained'? I did some sanding with a rotary sander, but, it did not take it away much since the wood itself is not very flat. Appreciate your answer.

    Can you provide me with a SDS for the TWP 100 and 1500?, And what is the difference in the Base oil used are they both the same base oil whit 1500 being less oil to reduce the VOC?

    What is the Base of your VOC that allows you to change it between your 100 series and the 1500 series ? Thanks

      Bases do not make VOCs, how much evaporates into the ozone does. Both are oil-based.

    What is the difference between 100 series and 1500 series? I have two fences, one new (bare wood) and one 10 years old and previously stained with a water based stain. Which stain should I use for each of my fences?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 09/26/2021
      The difference is VOC levels and what is allowed in your state. Where do you live?

    I just finished sanding my deck and stairs and am ready to clean and brighten, should I use a stiff brush to clean or a pressure washer for the best results? I pressure washed before sanding and it left a rough surface, just dont want to see that again after spending so much time sanding.

      Pressure washing lightly for prep while using the cleaner and brightener to open up the wood grain.

    Hello, couple of questions.  I used the TWP 100  2 years ago and am ready to reapply.  Which prep products do I need. Also, can this be put on a damp deck after being cleaned or does it have to dry.   ? Finally, if applying two cots it has to be wet on wet?  If so how long before second coat go on?  Thanks

      Clean and brighten for prep with the Gemini Restore Kits. Let dry for 48 hours. Has to be applied wet on wet for two coats. 40-60 minutes.

    Hi...I used the TWP series 100 Honeytone stain on my house last summer.  I lightly power washed this summer to remove pollen and mildew from building up.  I am thinking about applying a light coat of your clear stain and not another coat of honeytone.  I think the honeytone would darken the current look.  I like the current look.  Should I do this or apple another light coat of honeytone? thanks!

      You cannot apply the clear over the stain colors. Use the same color as before.

    I live in Kansas City MO and plan on staining an unfinished cedar deck that’s about a year old.  Would you recommend 100 or 1500?  Also, do you have any photos of a pecan and dark oak mixture?  I like dark oak but would like it a little lighter.  Thanks!

      Use the TWP 100 Series after prep with the Gemini Kit. We do no have mixed-color photos. If you want a lighter Dark Oak, add some Clear into it.

    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
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 07/24/2021
      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.

    1.  What are the differences between the Gemini and RAD products for prep?2.  What circumstances determine when you would recommend one over the other?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 07/13/2021
      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.
