    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.

    What is the best way to remove TWP stains.

    From White Vynel(sp) Siding?
    From Concrete.

    The TWP Stain/Spillage and over spray has dried.

    Thanks in advance

    TonyR

    Use a graffiti remover cleaner for these spots. Test first on the vinyl.

    I've decided on type 100 but do not quite like the colors I've received as samples. Can I mix colors together to make what I want? Specifically Dark Oak with Pecan or Clear?

    Yes you can mix TWP colors together of the same series.

    Jdeck101:
    100 vs 1500
    I am staining a 10 month old cedar deck for the first time. My climate is super cold with a long winter & the deck will be taking on a lot of snow etc. Am I better off with 100 or 1500 for maximum protection.
    Also, is there a shelf life for storing stain, I was considering buying in bulk & storing the remainder for 2 years in the garage?

    What state are you in?

    Patrick McGauley:
    My current deck is cedar and about 9 years old and in very good condition. It currently has TWP Cedartone 101.I have cleaned it with Olympic deck cleaner and lightly power washed a few sections. I am wondering if i can stain the Rustin color
    over the Cedartone? I also want to know if i should move from the 100 series stain to the 1500 series line?

    Stay with the 100 Series. You should be okay to apply the Rustic color over the Cedartone color.

    Hi -
    Can you ship twp100 to IL?
    I hv a deck that is maybe 10+ yrs old. Previous owner stained with a Red/mahagony color. Most has strip and looks grey. What do you recommend that I do before staining. And what color stain will best cover the old darker stain.

    TWP 100 is not allowed in IL. You can use the 1500 Series. You have to remove all of the old stain first before using the TWP. You cannot cover it with TWP.

    Log cabin approx 9 years old. Prevously stained by builder, but product unknown. Wood appears to be pine and is fair condition. Plan to pressure wash and stain all exterior which is 31' X 20'on each side. Hope to use TWP 100 in North Carolina. Please advise with recommended quantity.

    Hello, please supply us with a a total sq. footage of the wood to be stained. Not sure with your dimensions if all are sides are exactly square and exactly the same.
