    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.

    Covered porch deck 16 x 20, 8 yrs old. Previously stained with Cabot stain. Have stripped, cleaned and brightened with Gemini products. Some small area with mildew stains remain, even after cleaning twice with the cleaner. Any suggestions to remove the mildew stains?

      Try 1 part bleach to 4 parts water. Apply and rinse well after 10 minutes.

    This weekend the temperature will be in the 50’s and down to the 30’s at night. Will I be able to stain a new cedar pressure treated deck? I have the TWP 100.

    I just bought a house that has a pressure treated deck. Seems untreated. I'm looking to apply TWP 100 in Cedartone. What should i do for prep and application? If I use deck cleaner, how long will it have to dry (in Northern VA) before applying the stain. Anyone have good pics of what the finished product should look like for this color on PT wood?

      Prep with the Gemini Restore Kit. This will restore the wood. Takes two days to dry before staining.

    I have a new (5 month) old pressure treated deck and live in upper part of South Carolina (not close to the coast). When should I apply TWP and which type should I use. Do I need order on line or is there a distributor nearby. Thanks

    My "wood experts" neglected to put down drop cloths for staining my second story deck and i have tons of brick landscape stones and brick pavers that got drip, splash, and other oily stains now. The wood looks great! The bricks do not. Any suggestions for helping remove or lighten these stains? Thanks!

    I just built a new redwood deck with all new 2x lumber(not kiln dried). So I need to wait and let the wood dry out some before treating it? If so how long?

    I applied TWP100 to a 5 month old cleaned deck floor with pressure-treated wood. The cedar color is barely visible. What can I do to intensify the color?

    You used the 100 Clear? The clear is not tinted and does not have UV protection for the wood. You will need to remove it with this:
    https://www.twpstain.com/restore-a-deck-stripper-brightener-kit-detail

    And then apply TWP in one of the tinted colors for an enhanced look and UV protection.
