    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.

    Looking for assistance in choice of product
    new cedar deck (3 days old)
    Want to apply on frame before decking and railing being installed.
    Which of your two lines of products is suggested.
    Advise of advantage between clear and colored.

    You cannot apply TWP to brand new wood. Please see this article about new wood:
    http://www.twpstainhelp.com/prepping-new-wood-for-twp-stains/

    Clear has no UV protection from graying.

    So spray for about 10 - 20 minutes (long enough for the first coat to dry) then respray and back-brush to even out the top coat. Sort of "wet on wet" and back brush?

    I have 20 gallons so I should enough.

    Any idea on when a second coat may be needed or just let it weather?

    Thank you for you help![/quote]
    You do not let the first coat dry. Wet on wet is correct:

    Quick question on sprayer. Would be a heavy duty pump sprayer or more like High Volume Low Pressure paint sprayer?

    Hi

    Type of wood? Cedar shingles - sidewall
    Wood Condition: New - Dried for over a year
    Stained Previously: No
    Area to be treated: Entire house
    Location: About the same Latitude as
    Tawas City, MI (44°07'36.1"N) ie snows in the winter:)
    Color: Cape Code Gray (so more of a semi solid)
    Area: About 1600 ft2

    With the info above, what would you recommend as the best way to apply TWP-100? I was thinking of either spraying with an airless sprayer of brushing.

    Should I use two coats?

    Also, does it make sense to protect the lower half of the backside of the shingles on areas just above the shed roof that goes around the house (due to splashing)?


    Thanks
    Dan

    Apply the two light coats by spraying on the first coat then immediately back brushing the second coat. You will need about 10-15 gallons. No need to stain the back sides.

    Wood is 7 years old
    redwood
    gray but still in pretty good shape
    has been stained but is almost all gone and i am sanding it off
    outside deck facing west in dry part of colorado but cold and snowy at times, real low humidity
    I am wanting a dark stain like dark oak

    Prep after the sanding with the Gemini Restore Kit and then use the TWP 103 Dark Oak.
