    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.

    Scott Park:
    I have a 13 year old PTP wood deck. It is weathered with cracks and splinters. Sanding is not recommended due to arsenic content of the wood. It has previously been stained and sealed with Olympic cedartone one time about 5 years ago. It is a deck in full sun with mold and mildew problems due to large amounts of annual rainfall. I live in South Alabama.

    Prep first with the Restore A Deck stripper to remove the Olympic. Use the RAD brightener after to neutralize. Stain with the TWP 100 series after the prep.

    If an ipe wood deck is 1 year old and has been stained previously with TWP is it necessary to put two coats on it? The deck is on the west coast of California. Thank you.

    Only one coat for IPE and only the 1500 Series is allowed for CA.

    I stained my newly constructed cedar and pressure treated wood deck last August with TWP 100 per your instructions for new wood. Now, some of the boards have black mold on them. Can you tell me how to address this problem. I plan on re-staining this summer.

    Prep with the Gemini Restore Kit then reapply just one coat.

    Unknown age- approx. 30 years
    Unknown type of wood- pressure treated we assume
    Very grayed and molded,mildewed
    It has been stained before- some type of solid stain. Most is worn off
    Large area of decking that wraps around house and upper and lower decking some areas see shade part of the day and some are in full sun. House is lakefront in Indiana where we see all extremes in weather. Snow,freezing,hot,humid. From 10 below zero to 100 degrees

    Hello, TWP cannot be applied on top of a solid stain. It would have to be removed 100% and that would require sanding it off. Once removed you could use the 1500 Series.
