    I am installing an IPE soffit, Rainscreen Siding and decks at my new home. Which product is the best and how often will it need to be reapplied and will I need to apply it to the soffit since with will receive minimal weather and sun damage? I am in Pittsburgh, PA.

    Thanks!

    TWP is not suggested for IPE by the manufacturer.

    Stain still feels tacky in spots after 24 hours but was't pooled or puddled when applied. Wood was dry for 48 hours and not expecting any rain for 3-4 days. Deck had been stained with TWP 100 last spring but wanted to freshen it for an upcoming wedding in two weeks. Recommendations?

    Leave it alone until fully cured. It will be fine if it rains on it in the meantime. The tacky spots will cure.

    Hi. My wolmanized deck is at least 13 years old and to my knowledge has only been treated with Tompson's Waterseal. It has probably been 5 years since it was done last. Because the deck is old, I am trying to squeeze a little more life out of it by staining (a little darker), with TWP. I have powerwashed the entire deck (using deck cleaner). There were some rotted spots that I cleaned out used Minwax wood filler. I have actually already stained the vertical areas of the deck rails and horizontal railing. All looks great. All that is left is the horizontal boards of deck (part that you walk on). It rained lightly last night and I covered the entire deck with tarps but noticed some moisture still remained. It seems to be drying is out well today with the 70' temps and wind. I am debating whether or not to go ahead and finish the staining job or wait. Rain is forcasted for very late tomorrow night and it could be dry by then. Your thoughts?

    Do not stain if wood is wet and do not stain if rain will around within 12 hours or so after the TWP has been applied.

    Just replaced deck with new kiln-dried pressure treated pine decking. How long do I need to wait to stain it?

    About a month for kiln dried and prep with Gemini Restore Kit.

    Hi,

    I put TWP 100 on my redwood deck 2 winters ago. It has started to fade and does not repel water any more. I do not want to strip or sand the deck. I am looking for something I can just clean the deck off and reapply every few years. What options do I have for re-coating it? Thanks in advance.

    Scott

    Prep for recoating with the Gemini Restore Kit then restain with the same 100 Series.

    Lana Reed:
    My home was built in 1999 and has cedar on the outside. TWP was applied when new and again about four years later, then about five years later the painter used another type of stain, not TWP. The house needs the cedar done again and I would like to go back to the TWP product, what should I have done prior to doing the TWP stain this time. House is in southern Oklahoma. What type of weather is the best. After using the wrong type of stain the wood was darker. Help

    At this point you need to remove the old coatings. This can be done by stripping and possibly the need to corn cob blasting. Removal procedures varies on what the other brand was and the current condition. Feel free to reply to the email you will get with a picture of your home for additional help.

    cedar siding 20 yr old first coated with Mautz oil then S. Williams 702 VOC last 6 years ago. Some darkening due t mildew.Q: after clean and stripI intend on TWP 100. In 4 years can I just clean and reapply without strip? If WI changes law, can 1500 go over 100 series TWP? Is TWP 100% oil volatile or combo of acrylic and oil ? How much of TWP is comprised of organic/vegetable oil?
    Thanks for your help.
    Regards,
    John

    TWP is oil based with no acrylic. You can clean and reapply it as needed. If you switch to the 1500 later on that is okay as well. No vegetable oil.

    I just installed dogeared cedar fence pickets on pressure treated posts and rails. All wood (even cedar) was wet to the point of oozing moisture when driving screws. How long should I wait to apply twp100? If I wait until next spring, would it be less effective?

    If this wet you should wait until Spring. No harm or less effective.

    Damien:
    I just had a pergola/gazebo built in my backyard with pressure treated pine about 4 weeks ago.
    I have a couple questions:
    1)Do I need to let the wood "cure"
    2)the 6x6 posts are darker in color than the 2x6's at the top so would I need a solid color stain to make it all match?
    3)Do you sell solid stains?
    4)Do you have a larger example of your colors than the small squares on the web page?
    5)What do you recommend the twp100 or 1500?

    Thanks, Damien

    We do not sell solid stains, only semi-transparent colors. Please read this about new wood: http://www.twpstainhelp.com/prepping-new-wood-for-twp-stains/
