    I am staining 6 cedar pavilions. All previously stained with TWP. Using same color. Since using same product, is it still recommended to apply 2 coats. If so, how long do I need to wait between coats? How many days of dry weather is recommended before applying? I see that at least 24 hours is required for drying before next rain event. Thanks.

      Prep with the Gemini Restore Kit first. Wait 48 hours after prep or rain to stain. Apply one coat since this is a maintenance coat. It will need 12-24 hours to dry before any rain.

      1. Yes
      2. You have to use the 1500 for PA.

    What is the difference between the 100 and the 1500 stain?

      VOC compliance for certain states is the main difference. Not all states allow the 100 series.

    At best I will have 28-36 hrs of dry weather after applying TWP 100.
    Doesn't look good by waiting as needing 48 hrs to dry after a rain really complicated things. What is the minimum time for stain to set up before a rain event.

    Age of wood - New
    Type of wood - Bald Cypress timber columns/beams and 2x6 T&G spruce ceiling/decking
    Wood Condition - New and all is sanded all sides. The cypress columns/timbers do have some checking.
    There is no finish currently on either the spruce or cypress.
    I am in Western North Carolina near Tennessee on a mountain at around 3000' elevation. The exposure is due north.

    Which product do you recommend and do you custom mix colors? The ceiling will be well protected but the column/beams will be exposed to the elements for the most part.

    I recently bought the TWP 100 and applied it to my deck two days ago after prepping it with RAD stripper/brightener. I think I applied the stain too heavily as it is very tacky to the touch and the color still comes off on my hand. Will I have to strip it again and redo it? Or just wait longer for it to harden?

    Just started to apply 105 cape cod gray to my never treated, 1 yr old fence. I prepped as directed and had friend apply the stain.

    When I got home I realized it was not the color I wanted. It's very opaque and almost white. I live in a neighborhood with a HOA, and the cape cod gray will not be approved.

    I should have, and thought I had ordered the 106 prairie gray. Only 3, 5' x 6' panels stained on one side. I only ordered 2 gallons, which will not complete the job anyway.

    Questions:

    1. Can I remove the stain already applied and apply new color?

    2. Can I return 1 unopened gallon of 105 cape cod gray and order 5 gallons of the 106 prairie gray?

    Thanks for your assistance.

    Had issues with bad stain application from another company a couple years ago. Just power washed, stripped and then sanded the wood, live in Michigan, deck faces south with no shade. Do you suggest TWP100?

    Building an arbor out of pressure treated yellow pine(6x6s , 2x12, 2x4,etc.) The wood is new and in good condition, which series will work best and how long should I wait to stain. Thanks, Tom

    1. Im putting up a new deck for around my pool. Would you recommend the 100 or the 1500?

    2. Should I wait to apply the stain until the wood is weathered? Or could I stain it right away?

    Hello,
    We used a stain sealer 20 years ago from a company in the Washington State area. My question is what would be the best product that you sell that will darken & seal ? Thank you for your help in advance.

    I have a 600 sq ft pressure treated deck, 20 years old and in good condition in Denver CO. Weather is hot summer, rain, hail, snow, high UV due to altitude. Sanded to bare wood 3 years ago and stained with oil based semi transparent stain (Cabots?). Deck is half covered by a roof and half open. The open half is much more faded. Covered half looks nearly new. I want to use TWP Ceadartone. What procedure do you recommend?

    Can I install the 1500 series over previously installed 100 series? Also what is best color match for 101 Cedartone Natural? Existing stain is roughly 4-5 years old, what process would you recommend for application?

    I sanded off the old stain (different brand) - do I still need to do the deck wash/brightener stuff before putting down TWP100?

    My PT pine deck is about 10 yrs old. Had 3 types of stain over that time with stripping & sanding in between. Last used an oil based semi transparent but has all peeled off horizontal surfaces. Now planning to sand, wash, brighten and stain using your TWP 100 Dark Oak & Gemini cleaner combo kit. We live in IA. Would you recommend this approach?

      Yes. Make sure all of the old stain is removed.
