    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

    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.
