    I recently lost a friend/neighbor on our street helping family prep house for sale Refinishing 13'x 21' elevated half is 5 yrs old half 10 yrs old deck,stairs,balusters,hand rails support posts.
    Treated wood -type unknown
    Condition overall-fair- No graying. Had to do some scraping to remove peeling original stain on hand rails several stairs and deck boards
    Original brand-unknown
    Southern exposure - direct sun 6 hrs
    Do I need to sand all surfaces lightly even in areas where original stain is in good shape? (suppt posts, balusters some deck boards)
    Preparing to use cleaner and PW to finish prep.Need to return the 5 gallons of Olympic"Restore it"- light I purchased for the project. (puch.onsale 75% off at Lowe's since they are discontinuing the light product.) After reading horror stories of peeling a season after applied and effort required to remove and re-do.
    How much TWP 100 is needed?
    Can I apply with a Wagner optistain airless?
    Thanks!

    Hello,

    You have to remove all of the previous stain if you want to use the TWP. How to do this will depend on the brand and type that the old stain is. If you do remove the old stain then yes you can use an airless to apply. We would need the total sq. footage for the amount of TWP needed.

    I am about to apply a 2nd & 3rd coat of TWP stain on my deck. The 1st coat was applied 2 years ago & is looking really thin. First, I'll be using the remainder of a 5 gallon can from 2 yrs ago. Is it still good? Second, I seem to remember that you don't have to use a brightened on reapplications. Can I buy just the cleaner? Third, since the original stain is getting very thin, could/should I apply a 4th coat? Thanks!

    Use both the cleaner and brightener for the prep. Not sure of the stain is still good. Probably not as the shelf life is less them 12 months after opening. No you cannot over apply TWP. After the prep you can apply 1 or 2 coats depending on the porosity of the wood.

    I have a 6 year old 5 gallon pail of TWP 101 & it has become quite coagulated with thick chunks of rubbery like substance. Is there anything I can do to make this usable?

    Many thanks

    Elvis Palombizio:
    Hi - I put on a new deck last year (2012). Boards are PT, railing is vinyl. Deck was never stained/sealed/painted. Condition of wood is excellent, barring a few areas I need to sand down that have been marred up.
    What do you recommend for preparation before using your products? Should I sand the whole deck or would that be unnecessary considering it's a year old?
    Thank you
    Prep with the Gemini Restore Kit.

    Rube Junes:
    Logs are 20 years old pine. Fair condition, but not stained for 10 years. Last stain was Behr product. Going to treat all exterior logs, decks and railings AFTER corn media blasting using 20/40 grit.
    Question: Will any other surface prep be needed after blasting and blowing off all dust, etc.?

    No additional prep will be needed. Thanks!

    aj:
    Ive noticed on my last 2 5 gal pails of twp100 there is a 1/4" of putty like settling on the bottom of can. I took the pail to a paint store and had it shook first and i also stirred myself for a good 10 min. What is this and will it have any effect if i can get it to dissolve back into liquid?

    This is just pigment settling and yes you have to mix/stir this back into the stain.
