    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.

    HI,
    I need help as to what type of stain to use.
    Im comparing the 1500 series or the 100 series.
    I want this stain to last the longest amount of time. There is no such thing as a store like LOWES, Home DEPOT or any hardware store etc. that sells a good quality stain that lasts. These companies only sell to us consumers stains that last only 2 years or less.I have researched Ext Stains for about 6 hours now and I have read the reviews about your product and I have confidence in TWP since all the other garbage stains peel, lift etc after a year or two.
    Heres my deck info
    10 years old
    Pressure treated pine lumber
    Good condition now that I stripped it and spent 40 hours powerwashing it
    No idea about prior stain---just bought the house
    full day sunshine with some trees around the deck
    ALSO
    do you sell the HIGH VOC series 100 to Pennsylvania? and does High VOC last longer?
    thanks
    JOE

    TWP 100 is not legal for PA and we do not sell it there. Only the 1500. Apply two light coats of the 1500. Apply wet on wet. The 1500 lasts the same as the 100 when applied properly.

    I am building a new deck with KDAT pine.
    1. Do I need to do any surface preparation?
    2. Can I stain it right away?
    3. TWP 100 or 1500 for Georgia?
    Thank you

    Yes you will need to prep with the Gemini Restore Kit about 2-3 weeks after install of the wood. Use the 100 series and only one coat this year.

    tom powers:
    I would like to recover a small wooden deck (approx. 150 square feet of facing surface). The wooden understructure of the deck is fine (approx. 12 years old). I want to use new cedar.

    Do I need the gemini prep with new wood? Should one gallon of TWP 100 be enough? Are there mildew-resisting agents in the stain?
    thanks, tom
