    For maximum effectiveness to maintain the color of a new cedar fence, is it necessary to cover your fence with a clear coat polyurethane AFTER you have stained it with TWP 100?

      You can never apply a sealer or coating over a deck stain like TWP. It will peel.

    We applied a coat of the 100 stain on raw cedar that I waited for the mill glaze to wear off of. Cleaned the wood as directed and then had an issue come up that prevented us from adding a second coat which I think It needed. It has been about 36 hours now. Can I app,y again directly over this coat as it is?

      The decks are 21 yo pressure treated wood, and was previously stained with oil-based. Both are exposed to the sun and in shades 50% during the day. My contractor said that he’ll power wash it first.

    Newer treated pine deck and screened in porch floor that has been sitting for one year and never stained. The deck is in the Georgia sun for most of the day. I am planning on staining with TWP100 Prairie Gray. Hopefully, 1 coat. What prep would you recommend prior to staining? I do plan on brushing on stain in early June.

    Approx. 2 yrs ago I applied TWP 116 to my new 20' x 14' deck here in Raleigh, NC that is exposed to sun 7 hrs per day after it was 3 months installed. Now it is faded and seems a new coat is needed as the wood is slightly splintering and color has faded. I was thinking of moving to the 200 series to get more oil on it so it lasts longer than 2 years. Three questions:

    1) Can I use 200 series over the 100 series that I applied with the above conditions and will it last longer and color stay truer?
    2) Is it possible to move to a gray color over existing red color of the 116?
    3) What is best way to prep given the above conditions?

    Thanks in advance.

    I would like to use TWP100 (Honeytone) to stain pressure-treated (ground contact) decking boards.

    They were installed 1 year ago. How sure the boards be treated/cleaned prior to applying TWP100
    ? i.e., cleaned with Gemini Restore a Deck Kit or bleach solution (25%)? Should I add Dawn to the bleach solution? If so, how much? Thanks..

    I recently pressure washed my gates and fence. I don't remember what stain I used almost 12 years ago. I read the reviews for TWP 100 and I wanted to give it a try. I'm just outside L.A. in Woodland Hills and it gets really hot here in the summer. I don't want to change the color too much (see photo of before and after pressure washed) and it would be great to see some of the imperfections in the wood. Which TWP would you recommend?

    My 2nd story covered cedar deck was last treated about 5 years ago with a Behr stain, which is almost completely worn off. In August 2018 I had a lot of the deck boards replaced and new stairs built using cedar. This summer we will have a deck company power wash everything and then apply TWP 101 Cedartone. Is that sufficient or do they also have to do the Restore Kit prep?

      100% of the old stain must be removed and the use of the RAD prep products will aid with this. never a good idea to just use a pressure washer for prep without proper prep products. Too much pressure can damage the wood.

    Installed a new privacy fence in Michigan at the end of July last year. I did not apply any stain and left it bare through winter. 6x6 PT Pine posts with Rough Cut Cedar slats. Will I need to prep the wood with cleaner/brightener first? Since it's new, is one coat recommended at first? I have 66 linear feet at 6 foot high. Will 5 Gallons be good if only one coat is needed for both sides?

      Yes, prep first. Two coats for this rough sawn fence wood. You will need about 7-8 gallons.

    new rough cut cedar fence 3520 sq ft how much stain and do i need to prep> twp 100
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 03/29/2019
      Rough sawn wood will not need to be prepped as long as it clean and dry. For the two coats applied wet on wet, you will need 30-35 gallons for 3520 sq feet. Coverage does vary based on application method and wood porosity.

    I live in Houston TX where sun is really hot and summers humid. Want to stain my approx. 300 lineat feet of 6ft fence. Different areas get different amounts of sunlight from full shade to full sun. What type of stain 100 or 1500 would you recommend? How much stain will I need?

      TWP Stains · 03/12/2019
      Use the TWP 100 Series. For the sq footage (300 x 6 x 2 (both sides) = 3600), you will need about 30-35 gallons for the two coats.

    I have 170 linear feet of new western cedar fence that is 8 ft tall. It is also board on board and I need to stain both sides. I'm in Dallas, TX and the fence will get a lot of sun. What do you recommend, how many gallons and do I need 2 coats wet on wet?

      Is the wood rough sawn or smooth wood? You cannot stain new smooth right away. If rough sawn, you can do now as long as the wood is clean and dry. About 20-30 gallons for the two coats applied wet on wet.

        Yes. It is rough sawn.

    I have built a brand new deck with deck seating all the way around it. Can I use the 100 series in a color for both the decking and the seating or should the deck be done in another series? Also, can I add a coat of the clear on top of the color to help the coating?

    Redwood deck being installed currently in Colorado. What color TWP will best show off the beautiful patterns and colors while offering great uv protection? Also was concerned about a winter's worth of snow before treating/sealing the deck. Better to weather 4 months? Temps too cold to apply so really not much choice anyway. Best prep method for Redwood in April?

    I have a 6 yr old timber frame home. Exterior posts and frames need to be restained. I've chosen TWP 100. Surfaces have been power washed. Should the wet on wet application be applied?
