    I have a 23 year old PT deck that has been stained numerous times with Sherwin Williams and Cabot grey solid and semisolid stain. It is on the back of the house in morning sun in MA.The wood is in good condition, I have had to take a thin kerf saw to increase the spaces between some boards as they have swollen and closed the gaps. I would like to clean it and put the appropriate TWP product on it. It is connected to a screen porch which has the same stain-currently solid- which needs only a touch up.

    I am sorry but you cannot use TWP over these products. You would have to remove them first completely by sanding them off.

    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!
