    I have a 20 yr. old redwood deck that was weathered. I power washed the wood then ran it through a planer. Should this be treated as new wood? Should I let it weather again, does it need 2 coats?

    Willyou:
    I just replaced about 1/2 of my 400 sq ft deck with Yellawood ACQ PT 2x6s. On Yellawoods website, they recommend that the decking be waterproofed immediately after installation. They don't say with what. And, they don't suggest that the wood weather and dry out before waterproofing. This appears to be contrary to your recommendations. If I were to waterproof it now I assume that it will slow the drying process and will need to be stripped later before applying TWP. What do you suggest?
    Thanks

    Best to follow the directions of the stain manufacturer, not the wood manufacturer. If you stain or seal now you will need to redo in the Spring.

    To use on New Redwood decking being installed for our condo walk and carport parking surface. Project in Nevada mountains....we've used the 100 series for other projects elsewhere & were very pleased. This would be the best product for this application, right?

    Yes but the new wood does need to season and be prepped:

    I have a cedar home that was finished with Sherwin Williams deckscapes, oil base neutral color. I used tru value deckwash and behr brightner and when I started to apply the deckscapes it looked really dark, even though it was the toner only. I heard about twp and apply it, at it to looked dark so I quit. The wood looks clean, bright and completly clean of product. Could there be a reaction between the twp and the brighter? I rinsed it completely with water.
    TWP does not react with a brightener. Not sure what you mean by dark but TWP will enhance the natural grain of your wood. It could be that your cedar has dark tannin stains in the wood and that is causing the issue.

    We have a Alabama lake home with a very large covered porch with western exposure that gets intense direct summer sun for about 4-5 hours/day. The surface has been well maintained with applications of a clear wood preservative from the big box stores every two years. We would like to try to get a longer wear period from it and are considering TWP 100. We don't want a stain that is subject to peeling and our primary goal is to protect the wood with absorbing product and not have to worry about cracking or peeling of the product. Are we on the right track for what our goals are?Recommendation?

    TWP would be the correct choice a long as your prep correctly by removing the previous coatings that you applied. TWP needs to soak into the wood fully and any previous coatings on the wood would hinder this.

    If I can't get the stain on in time, what would I have to do to get it ready to stain at a later date? Clean and brighten again?

    Yes that is correct.

    I have 8 month old composite deck with pressure treated railing and spindles. I used Restore a deck and brightener about a month ago. It has been raining off and on ever since. It has not dried enough to use the TWP 100 stain yet on the railings. How long can I wait to stain after the cleaning. I live in Cincinnati

    Usually a few weeks is about a long as you can go with a deck floor. A couple of weeks longer for vertical rails.

    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.
