    First time to refresh stain after going through all the proper steps almost 2 years ago. What are the steps I need to take to do that? I used TWT101 cedar tone. Also, I have almost a full can left from that first time. Is it going to be ok to use?

    Use the Gemini Restore Kit for prep. The stain should be okay as long as it was not opened and did not freeze. Stir well.

    I have a one month old pressure treated pine fence. How should i prep my fence and what is the best product for my fence?
    Thanks

    If is is rough sawn wood then no prep and stain now. If smooth wood then read this: http://www.twpstainhelp.com/prepping-new-wood-for-twp-stains/

    Use the 1500 or 100 Series.

    will putting on a third coat darken the color? Have already put on two coats as instructed. How soon can a third coat be put on if it will darken the color?
    This is on new white cedar logs on an addition.

    You should not apply more. Too much stain and it will not absorb into the wood.

    We live in the Pacific NW (Washington State) and our 8 year old house has cedar siding that was originally stained with Cabot's clear which wore off within a year. We are looking for a semi-transparent stain that will wear well in our damp climate. All the painting contractors we've contacted want to use Sikkens but I have not been impressed with the reviews I've read. Can TWP 100 semi-trans be used on cedar siding? If so, is there any special prep that needs to be done before application (the house has been pressure-washed, TSP'd and thoroughly rinsed so it's basically back to unfinished cedar)?

    As long as the cedar is clean and free of coatings then you are good to stain. The TWP 100 Series works excellent on cedar siding.

    I need to purchase a mix of TWP deck stain. Looking for a mixture of 90% pecan w/ 10% Dark Oak. Do you mix stains to order? If not can you tell me what quantities of Dark Oak I would need to add to a gal. of pecan stain to achieve the desired mix/color of stain?

    Sorry but we do not custom mix colors. You would need a ratio of 1:9.

    Want to restain my log home in lighter tint than Behr Redwood. Don't like Behr's thin coating as compared to Cabot and have heard TWP's even better than Cabot.

    Hello, what was your question? If color question, please try some samples:
