    15 year old Rainbow play system. Most is either redwood or Douglas fir. We have replaced some board with cedar and pressure treated. It was stained previously with Rainbow's own stain. Most of that has either worn or been power washed away. Wondering what the best solution is given the different types of wood we have. And will a semi-transparent stain unite the wood enough in appearance? Will the new cedar pieces eventually match the old wood, or will staining prevent the aging of the new pieces?

    Hi, I have a 17 year old redwood deck in Denver, Colorado. Superdeck has been used on this deck since it was built. The deck is being stripped to original wood with Deck Restore. I may sand as well as i have some fuzzies showing. I would say the condition of the wood is average for a deck of this age. Which product would you recommend? We have used redwood color in the past but was unsure if there is any reason to use a different color in regard to showing dirt, wear?

    Use the 100 Series. Any color that you like will work. TWP does not darken like the Super Deck so dirt does not matter.

    Pine, AZ. 6,000 foot elevation. Neglected for ten years. Moldy, very dried out in places. 1200 sq ft wrap around redwood deck. Mostly exposed, 1/3 under covered porch still showing some stain. Clean and brighten with restore a deck, strip old stain and brighten. Sand it all then 1500 or 100 series stain?

    Use the 1500 Series for this.

    I am new to this and just applied TWP 1500 to my deck only to discover I have the fuzzies on my railing. Can I sand the railing then reapply TWP? Wood is pressure treated lumber, 10 years old, never treated-- pretty bad condition. Thanks!

    Yes, you can do this.

    Installed cedar vertical fencing 9 months ago in Oklahoma. Used TWP 100 Clear when installed. The cedar has western exposure and the natural yellow/red color is starting to fade. Would like to restore natural yellow/red color and eliminate potential of graying. What stain should I apply?

    For UV protection, you will need to use a tinted color. Try the Honeytone 115. Prep with the Restore A Deck Stripper Kit.

    follow up to first question. I did not buy stripper only cleaner but since we are sanding will that effectively remove the old stain?

    If you are sanding, do it first and then clean and brighten the wood for the final prep.

    1 year old red western cedar. Full sun. vertical side of a house. Previous stain sherwin williams water based semi transparent. Failure at 1 year with mildew and pealing. Plan is to use restore a deck cleaner and brightener then sand to original color and to completely remove old stain. After sanding do you recommend anything prior to applying TWP?

    Are there any pictures of finished projects in the different colors TWP offers? Trying to decide between Redwood and Rustic. Used Sherwin Williams Covered Bridge previously and want a similar color.

    Colors vary based on wood type and age of wood. Best to try some samples on your wood: https://www.twpstain.com/stain-samples

    We recently had a deck and boat house stained. The contractor used a Behr product (natural stain) water base and the problem was the color. We requested cedar tone and he applied natural. We want to re-stain with TWP 100 cedar tone. The contactor plans on using a foam based cleaner to clean surface before application. Will we be ok going forward with TWP 100?

    No. You cannot apply TWP (or any other brand) on top of the Behr. You will need to remove the Behr and that requires stripping and sanding. Behr is not easy to remove, especially when just applied.
