    Hello, I have had a new deck built this February 14 x 28. redwood. my builder used an angle grinder to even up places where the wood was not level. i plan on staining the desk this may. i am wondering if I should sand the deck with a belt sander to even out the marks the angle grinder has left before i stain it. Is this a good idea? will sanding close the grain? Thank you

    Yes sanding closes the grain. Please see this about new wood: http://www.twpstainhelp.com/prepping-new-wood-for-twp-stains/

    I prepped and cleaned my new deck last summer and stained it with TWP 101 cedar stain. I want to apply an additional coat of stain to the horizontal surfaces this spring/summer. Do I need to do any prep-work prior to applying a second coat? Please advise...Thank you

    Lightly wash with soapy water to remove dirt for prep. Warm water with dish soap will work. You do not want to use too much pressure or too harsh a cleaner that would remove the coating from last year.

    Stained deck with TWP in august 2014, asked if I should re-stain in 2015 and was told to wait until the following year. It is now time. What are the best steps to take? Spindles are still fine but there are worn areas on the deck and top of hand rail.

    Prep with the Gemini Restore Kit and then reapply the same stain.

    May I pressure wash 6 year old PT deck with one coat of TWP100 on it, prior to reapplying TWP 100?

    Use the Gemini Restore Kit while pressure washing for the prepping.

    New PT lumber almost a year old waiting on it to dry good looking for a stain and leaning at TWP100 redwood.My question is looking at ready seal, bakers gray wood andTWP100 does your product have to be stripped after 2/3 years or can you properly clean it and recoat. we are old people and can maintain what we have but dont wont to get into stripping. From what I can read your product holds its color better than the other above mentioned.On your reply give me advice on the best way to clean this lumber and put down TWP100.Any help would be appreciated. Do I put down one heavy coat then while wet apply another coat please advise.
    Thank You,Tim

    TWP can be cleaned and reapplied as needed down the road. Prep with the Gemini Restore Kit and apply 2 light coats "wet on wet":

    Can you ship the TWP100 to Pennsylvania? Is the 100 better than the 1500 series and can you apply the 100 over the 1500 which was previously used. Thanks.

    Sorry, but TWP 100 Series if not legal for PA and you cannot apply it over the 1500 Series.

    i cleaned and restored and coated my deck last summer.i want to recoat. deck is around 900 sq, feet how much product do i need? i use the 100 series.

    How much did you use last time? If doing a light maintenance coat you should use about 60% of what you used the first time.

    chris mcginnis:
    1. old (20+ years)
    2. cedar
    3. cracking and warped but not rotten
    4. stained with semi transparent but not sure of age (old)
    5. 2000 sq. ft. deck

    Can I apply one coat only of TWP 100? it is so large I wold rather not have to do a second coat unless necessary.

    Hello, for the prep you will need to remove the old stain first suing the Restore A Deck stripper and pressure washing. Once removed you would need to brighten the wood with the RAD Wood Brightener. TWP 100 should be applied wet on wet. Typically the railings only need one coat but the horizontals should get two.
