    Jerry Hannah:
    Planning to clean and seal 400' of cedar fencing.
    Age -11 months
    Condition - nearly new, fence has greyed some, plan to clean and powerwash, using either bleach cleaner or Krud Kutter non-bleach.
    No previous stain
    ? - Should we use TWP 100 or 101? We used #101 on an 800sf treated deck, but this is cedar.
    ? Will #100 last as long?
    ? Will #101 make it too dark?
    I have used Flood SWP on cedar fencing before. How will TWP 100 compare?
    Planning on 15 gallons to cover.
    Cleaning - any advice on cleaning cedar fence - bleach or non-bleach?

    Thanks

    Use the 100 Series. Should last 3-6 years on the fence. Not sure what you consider "too dark" as that is an opinion. TWP preserves and protects better the the Flood.

    Do you mean 400 linear feet for the fence? Id so and you are doing both sides you have 4800 sq. feet if 6 feet high. Is that correct? If so you will need much more then 15 gallons for this.

    Hello, again. You have instructed me to go ahead & clean, brighten & stain these areas of pine & PTP. Even if the 1x12 pine boards are butted up directly next to the stained cedar walls beneath them? We will have to tarp all of the walls/sides to accomplish, which we will do. But, just double-checking. Don't want to ruin all of our hard work & investment. Thank you.

    We have a newly sided rough hewn cedar shed. We have it almost completely stained but have some questions regarding how to proceed with this situation. The problems are:The soffit sections all around the bldg.are 1x12 4 mos.old pine boards.They are adjacent to the cedar we just stained last week. Another problem area that I didn't think of before staining the cedar is that all of the porch overhang is mostly pine 2x4 rafters & the posts are PTP. We are waiting to stain the adjacent South wall of cedar that is under the overhang until we hear from you on how to proceed.If we Gemini clean or restore the rafters, soffits & posts, will that affect our already newly stained boards? It has been 4 months since this was built so the drying waiting time for the pine & PTP has happened.Do we leave the pine & PTP sections until Spring & go ahead & stain the So.Wall? Or can we treat the pine, now, let dry & then stain the entire So. end at once & not harm the already stained areas? Thank You!

    Just go ahead and clean/brighten and stain now.

    20 years old
    Pressure treated pine
    Average for age
    Does not appear to have been treated/just bought the house
    Very large wooden deck on two sides of the house.

    Prep all the wood with the Gemini Restore Kit and pressure washing. Use the TWP 100 Series if allowed in your state otherwise use the 1500 Series.

    I am having an addition put on my existing deck. It will be treated pine and wrapped in cedar. What stain can I use to make the pine (both old and new) most closely match the cedar? Can I use the same stain on the cedar? The existing wood is about 10 years old.

    New and old wood will not match the first time staining. The newer wood will be lighter in color. Please read this about new wood and TWP: http://www.twpstainhelp.com/prepping-new-wood-for-twp-stains/

    I live on a small lake in the Grand Rapids Michigan area. My deck is 16' x 28' and is 26 years old and made out of what was called wolmanized (treated) lumber at the time. I've just completed power washing it and am looking for the best sealant or stain that will hold up the longest and just fade with time. THANKS

    Use the TWP 100 Series. Apply two coats "wet on wet".

    Is CWT100 legal in WA state? I am completely sanding my deck with a 12x18 walk behind sander. How many coats would be required? Thank you.

    The TWP 100 Series is allowed in WA. After the sanding you should prep with the Gemini Restore Kit. apply two light coats of the TWP. Apply "wet on wet".

    I want to stain my 3 rail fence.
    It has 30 x 10' rails, 11 post, & 2/4' gates. The rails are different age & need to be cleaned. How much stain do I need? Do you have a cleaning agent? Can I spray the fence or use a brush?
    Thx, Steve

    philip mcbride:
    I have a redwood deck, new this year and applied 2 coats after aging the surface. The redwood absorbed both coats with no problems other than aesthetics. Three months later I applied a coat in hopes that it would become glossy and even. The problem that I have is that it is peeling off and easily scraped. It is possible that I applied the TWP to thick. This application does not seem that it is totally dried, and it has been 2 weeks in 80+ temperatures. How do I treat the peeling areas? How can I repair these areas. Thank you.

    You did many things incorrectly. First new wood needs to age 4-12 months and prepped first properly. In addition only one coat is suggested for new wood. TWP also is a penetrating stain and it not supposed to be shiny. Shiny means you excessively over applied and the TWP "filmed" on the surface. When the stain is over applied, it will fail. The only thing you can do is remove it all and start over. Please read this about new wood: http://www.twpstainhelp.com/prepping-new-wood-for-twp-stains/

    Michele Morrow:
    20 years
    Pressure treated decking and fence.
    good condition/stained and treated.
    Elevated covered deck with stairs and railing(10x12, 13 stairs)

    fence in fair condition but has never been stained or treated. fence is about 140 yards total

    Prep the fence with the Gemini Restore Kit first. The deck if still has an older stain will need to be stripped with the Restore A Deck Stripper. Brighten after.
