    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.

      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?

    When I did the calculator for amount needed it says 2 coats "wet on wet". Do I need two coats and what does wet on wet mean?

    Need to know what I ordered in the past. Just bought 101 TWP Stain. It is to dark brown. Know I accidentally ordered this two years ago and did not use. Then ordered a lighter Cedar Stain. I like the color of the lighter stain. Is there a 100 Cedar Stain? Can you check please so that I can order the lighter stain.

      The only past order we see in your email address is from 2015 and that was for TWP 101 Cedartone. The only lighter tinted color is the 115 Honeytone.

    How do you remove TWP 300 from deck? There are many areas that you can scrap off with your fingernail. Some areas turned black. And after all said and done, is the 1500 series the best stain for the deck floor? Also, which is the best stain for the deck siding which drops down our slope and has a door. It's about 15". Thanks

      You will need to sand off the 300 Series. Use the TWP 1500 for all surfaces.

    I live in Oregon and have an ipe hardwood deck that faces south. Lots of rain and lots of sun. I would like to use the TWP 100 and expect to put on one maintenance coat every year. Can I do this indefinitely or will I have to strip it down and sand it every so often?

    We have a redwood deck that has 4 coats of clear & semi-transparent. These are going to be sanded to bare wood what do you suggest for the 320' seat redwood deck?

      The TWP 100 or TWP 1500 Series would be the correct products.
