    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

    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/

    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.

    25 year old cedar deck, good condition, Thompson water seal, followed by Beher semi, then Behr Solild, none held up. Now stripping deck to bare wood and wanting to restain. Located in Wisconsin.

    You must remove all of the Behr solid stain if you want to use the TWP and that will require sanding it off as s tripper will not remove it completely.

    We have read the can, looked on the web, but cannot find how long we need to let the 100 stain dry before we are able to put out metal deck furniture and use the deck. Could you please advise? We are patient, but are looking forward to using our new deck. :D

    1-2 days but depends on weather and UV exposure.

    Sir,
    My deck and vertical wood; treated pine, are 8 yrs old and have had a sherwin williams oil transparent that is 5 yrs old. The stain is wearing off and some of the wood is checking. What do you suggest for prepping and which product would be best ? The 100 or the 1500 ?

    Prep first with the Restore A Deck Stain stripper with pressure washing. After removal you will need to apply the RAD brightener. Stain with either the 1500 or 100 series based on what is allowed in your state.

    We hope to stain in the next few days after brightening (already used cleaner). The forecast calls for highs 94-95 and heat indices of up to 105. The TWP 100 can states to stain between 50-90 degrees and cautions about the set point. Should we wait until the temperature gets under 90 before we stain?

    Sorry did not see this but yes best to be careful if over 90 degrees.

    I previously used an Olympic deck stain on my deck, and I have prepped the deck for a new staining using the Olympic deck cleaner. Will the TWP 100 product cover/blend with the old stain or does it need to be stripped?

    You cannot apply the TWP over the Olympic so you will need to strip it.

    We are not sure of the age of our deck. We bought the house Dec of 2013 and I know that is was on the house at least 5 years prior to that. We think that the wood is green treat, but as I have sanded, some but not all has a cedar smell. It has had a stain, but no idea what kind. I have been sanding it due to new siding and flashing close to deck. Part of the deck is open to full elements and sun, while some of the deck is under a roof. We live in northwest Missouri. Do we need to use 100 or 1500? We want something to last, but also do not want something with a lot of color as we are wanting the rustic look that we currently have after sanding.

    Use the 100 Series but make sure to remove all of the old stain first.
