    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.

    Wood is one year old. Treated pine. In very good condition. Previously stained with Baker's Gray Away. We power washed with combination of bleach and detergent and water.

    What do we need to do before and when staining?

    Is the wood clean and free of the Bakers? If so then you are ready to stain now. Use the 100 Series for this and apply two coats to the wood. Use the wet on wet method. Thanks!

    We just finished putting up a new Pine treated fence about 4 weeks ago. I want to use the semi-transparent honey tone.
    How long do we have to wait to apply this? I live in IL so it gets a bit muggy here - don't know if that makes a difference.
    I have heard 1-3 weeks, 3-6 months, and 1 year. I want to treat the wood BEFORE it turns grey.
    Please help. Thanks

    I have a composite deck made of Evergrain Composite material. The cedar color did not hold and the deck is in very good condition but very faded. Can I use your product TWP 100 or one of your other products on this composite material?

    Sorry but no you cannot.

    Al Badalamento:
    Deck is 17 years old is cedar and in very good condition. I place bad boards as needed. Floor was stained last year with TWP 101 and rails are being done this year.
    Both floor (last year) and rails were stripped and brightened. Questions:
    1. Can I put another coat on floor this year without stripping?
    2. Can I put one coat on vertical railing this year and the second coat next year?
    3. There is some white mold on a few boards under the 10' high deck, can I spray 101 on it to protect the wood?

    The deck has been maintained by Penofin the last 17 years but always was very dirty in the spring. Your Cedartone 101 this year only needed a light cleaning it still looked great in the spring!

    1. Yes as long as you clean the floor form dirt
    2. Yes you can do that
    3. Yes.

    TWP does not turn dark or black like the Penofin can.

    Aloha,
    My deck is about 2 years old. Pressure treated. I stained this deck previously with a product called Thundersheild. It is water based and began peeling off within a couple of months. I powerwashed most of it off. This deck is in the sun almost all day till around 4pm. I read some reviews that name your product as the best. Do you have a supplier here on Oahu? Thanks for your help.

    Used TWP 100 Redwood 2 yrs ago and customer would like me to re-up it soon. Raleigh NC
    I plan to pressure wash and thoroughly dry; can I put fresh TWP 100 back on? Lumber is in better than good condit. I use and recommend TWP and have put it on about 7 decks. I'm a handyman.

    As log as you clean and prep properly first you can reapply the same TWP.
