    I stained a large new deck here in NC mountains with TWP 100. Came out great. There is a section that is shaded that has mildewed on the horizontal surfaces. What should I use to clean it?  Thanks

    12-15 yr old deck on house in Va, stripping, cleaning and brightening got that.  This deck gets minimal to average sunlight, I would say could be more likely to mold then to have excessive UV issue.  Semi solid or 100 series.

      Where in VA? Certain areas do not allow the semi-solid or 100 Series.

    TWP 103 Dark Oak on older treated pine deck, previously stained with this product 5 years ago, now second time, finish is glossy in spots.(Do not care for the gloss) I did clean deck with Oxiclean/ vinegar and TSP and corrected PH with Oxalic acid, rinsed well and dried for 48 hours before application. How to deal with the gloss and eradicate?

      Prep was incorrect and/or the stain was over applied, resulting in shiny spots. See here for tips: https://twpstainhelp.com/twp-stain-is-spotty-or-shiny/

        Update on my original post. In retrospect, I can tell you that the prep was done just fine. I haved been building and staining decks for over 30 years, does not make me an expert, far from that, but I have used various stains, oil and waterbased. TWP is by far the best that I have used. My problem with this section of deck, was that it was in full sun in South Texas and I was trying to get the work done before it got too hot. The ambient temp for that day was 93 and the stain was drying before we could wipe up the excess, so too much stain did go down. It was applied with rollers and brushes, necessary to fill in the cracks in the pressure treated pine wood, as the deck has taking a beating from the sun for over five years since the first staining. What I have now found out, two weeks after the job was finished, is that with time, the stains gloss is slowly going away due to the blazing sun and the deck is looking better every day. Sometimes, waiting, and letting Mother Nature do her thing, can be the best solution.

          Just an FYI, TWP is a fully penetrating stain. It is not designed to fill in cracks or dry on top of the wood, but in the wood fully.

          Glad it is looking better!

      No, and you cannot ever topcoat TWP with a sealer or coating, it would peel.

    We have used TWP 101 cedar tone on our cedar deck for years. This year my wife got a gallon of the 1501 cedar tone I’m wondering if they are the same other then the VOC and can they be used together?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 03/21/2022
      No, they are not the same and not the same color. You can use it but you will need to strip off the 101 first.

    My deck is one year old and I’m going to stain. Does it need any prep work before applying and do you use the 100 series or 1500 series and how many coats do you recommend?

    I’m having a house built with cedar headers above the windows in Kansas City, MO.  The cedar will be in full sun for most of the day.   Would it be best to get 100 or 200?  Thanks!

    I power washed the deck 3 times in 3 days, then removed and sanded the boards on all sides. about 70% of the boards I turned over and used that side for the surface. Most of the screws were not coated and were rusted badly. After removing all the screws I drilled out the holes and filled them with Elmer's wood filler.  I plan to coat 3 sides with a semi transparent stain. After that I will attach the boards to the deck. which series do you think I should use. I don't want to have to stain every year.

      You should not have used wood filler. It will fail and will not “stain” to blend. Only stain the exposed sides. Which series to use depends on where you live?

      No, you can never top coat over the TWP.

    After applying the RAD Stripper and brighner and washing away (I power washed after applying stripper and rinsed after applying brihtner), I see residues on the wood while drying. What should I be doing before applying the stain?

          That is oxidation. It typically does not show when stained but you can lightly sand it if you want.

            Did you mean 'it does not show up when stained' or 'it does show when stained'? I did some sanding with a rotary sander, but, it did not take it away much since the wood itself is not very flat. Appreciate your answer.

    Can you provide me with a SDS for the TWP 100 and 1500?, And what is the difference in the Base oil used are they both the same base oil whit 1500 being less oil to reduce the VOC?

    FunnyMoose · 09/27/2021
    What is the Base of your VOC that allows you to change it between your 100 series and the 1500 series ? Thanks
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 09/27/2021
      Bases do not make VOCs, how much evaporates into the ozone does. Both are oil-based.

    What is the difference between 100 series and 1500 series? I have two fences, one new (bare wood) and one 10 years old and previously stained with a water based stain. Which stain should I use for each of my fences?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 09/26/2021
      The difference is VOC levels and what is allowed in your state. Where do you live?

          You have to use the 1500 Series for CA.

    I just finished sanding my deck and stairs and am ready to clean and brighten, should I use a stiff brush to clean or a pressure washer for the best results? I pressure washed before sanding and it left a rough surface, just dont want to see that again after spending so much time sanding.

      Pressure washing lightly for prep while using the cleaner and brightener to open up the wood grain.
