    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

    We want to use TWP 100 to restain a deck in Cleveland, Ohio that has previous coats of Cabot 1433 stain on it. Any advice?

    TWP cannot go over a stain of a different brand. The Cabot would have to be removed first. In addition you have to use the 1500 Series for Ohio.

    Can I put TWP on a painted deck? The deck is a brick red paint. TWP states it's a cedar national. Sorry for the little info as this is for my grandfather and a friend gave it to him. Thank you.

    No TWP cannot go on a painted deck.

    We have alot of afternoon rain here. What is the dry time for this product? It says I need a 2-day window of dry weather after inital application.......Please advise...Thanks

    Depending on your wood, exposure to sun, and air temps, it can take the TWP anywhere from 4-24 hours to dry properly before a rain can hit it.

    We have a 15 year old PT pine deck with an 8 year old addition. They had a coating on that I pressure washed, cleaned, sanded and brightened. The wood looks good and I am ready to apply the TWP 120. I plan to coat the balusters first by brush, then apply a coat on the handrails followed by a second coat. We will then apply a coat to the floor with a pad and within 10-20 min a second coat wet on wet by sections of the deck floor. The temp is mid 70's at night and is to be 95+- during the afternoon. Can I get up early and get coated and be okay? We have been getting a lot of rain and wonder how long after we apply will it be okay if it rains?

    You should be okay as long as it does not rain for the rest of the day.

    I have an older deck that has been fairly well maintained over the years. The last two applications of stain were Flood. 1. Will TWP cover this prior application? 2, Which product would be best for this deck? 3.Can TWP be applied with a sprayer?

    1. No, you cannot apply TWP over a different stain.
    2. Use the 100 if allowed in your state. If not use the 1500
    3. Yes but you will need to back wipe.

    I have a 30 year old pressure treated pine deck that has been stained multiple times with Behr. I used the Woodrich hd-80 stripper and brightener to remove the old stain. I'm sanding now. I replaced a few damaged boards but the wood is in reasonably good condition (but does seem dry). Can I use the 100 product and is the stated coverage for 1 coat? Would the second coat go further? I live in Michigan.

    As long as all the Behr is removed you can use the TWP. First coat of TWP applies at 150-200 Sq. feet. Second applies at 200-300.

    I'm constructing a pergola out of cedar purchased from a lumber yard so I'm wondering what steps I need to take on the new wood because in reading and talking with people I've heard a variety of things (i.e. wipe the wood down w/ soapy water then seal it, just seal it no wipe down, use a prep kit and then seal it and you don't have to do anything for a year). What I thought I was going to go with after hearing everything was to use the restore a deck kit and then use the TWP 100 but I heard the TWP 100 should only be used on wood that's been exposed for at least 4 months. What would you recommend?

    i ordered and received a 5 gallon drum of TWP 100 stain. The lid was bent on one side and will not closed back completely sealed. How is the best way to store the stain under current conditions. I have about two gallons left in drum.
    Thanks

    Sorry about the dent. Your local store will sell a plastic 5 gallon pail and lid for abut $5. Transferring to that will work.
