    I have a 7 year old covered deck that I put Twp 101 on a year after it was built it looks good but needs restained I am going to use TWP 101 again do I need to do anything but power wash it first thanks

    It would be best to use a deck cleaner with the pressure washing for the prep.

    Jeff Whiteman:
    What stain would you recommend for a 6 month old deck in Montana? I am looking for something that will keep the cedar from splintering but would like to allow the wood to grey if possible. If that is not possible to do with a clear stain, what stain would you recommend with the minimum amount of color?
    The TWP 100 Clear will protect the wood while allowing the wood to gray naturally. This would be your best option. You can choose the clear in the options drop down when ordering.

    Need a new gallon can of 1500 just to finish up a project. How long will the remaining stain (about 90% of the can) be viable. Could I use it again in 2-3 years?

    Prep first with Gemini Restore kit and pressure washing to restore color before using the TWP stain.

    We are installing new cedar decking. Since it is brand new wood, it is in excellent condition, but it does not absorb water (I assuming due to mill glaze). I would like to stain it with TWP 100 (I live in Missouri) as soon as possible so that it doesn't turn gray. Please let me know the best way to determine when it will accept stain and the best way to prep it. We are installing it without prepping it in any way, is this an issue? Thanks for any and all advice you can send. I have been very confused by all of the info on the Internet and it seems a lot of it pertains to pressure treated and not cedar. THANKS!

    I live in colorado. I have a redwood deck that is about 25 yrs old. I flipped the boards over and sanded down thru the uv grey to the redwood surface. I've heard that TWP 100 is the correct stain to use. Do I need to prep the surface before I apply the TWP 100? If I apply the penetrating stain will it look "blotchy?" My preference is a semi-transparent stain. I have a 16' x 20' ft. Deck and am thinking 2 gals. Should cover it. How do I go about getting a small sample from you to test it? Also, are there any local dealers near Ft. Collins, Co.? I look forward to hearing from you. Rick

    Samples are on the website to test.

    You will need to prep after the sanding with the Gemini Restore Kit. You will need 2-3 gallons for the deck, more if you have railings and steps.

    I had a new deck built in May. We've had a very dry summer. Would it be okay to clean, brighten, and apply TWP to a four month old deck with pressure treated pine?

    Yes you should be good to go. Only one coat of the TWP.

    I have a cedar-sided house that was stained a dark chocolate brown. I'm guessing previous owner didnt prep before staining, because power spraying instantly revealed a wonderful light brown wood color underneath with woodgrain. My question is whether you offer a clear stain that would allow me to preserve the natural wood color that is now showing.

    We have clear but clear does not have UV protection from graying. You need to have color in the TWP for this.

    Hi! My deck is cedar and approximately 10 years old. I have been using Olympic Maximum semi-transparent stain on it. Last application was about 2 years ago. I live in Atlanta, GA. Deck is covered, but stairs are not. Would you recommend TWP 100 or 1500? Can I use Gemini deck cleaner and brightener, or just stripper. Deck was just pressure washed by house painter, but I'm trying to decide on a stain. Thanks so much!!

    You need to remove the Olympic so best to use the stripper and then the brightener after to neutralize.
