    we cleaned and stained our deck in sept 2011 with twp 100 cedartone, it needs to be done again this year, the wood is ipe, it's 4 years old. it held up pretty good, mostly fading not much black mildew at all. when it rains it no longer beads up. what do i have to use to remove old twp 100? we used m-1 deck and roof cleaner 3 years ago and it worked great. thanks

    Use the Restore A Deck Stain stripper followed by the Wood Brightener for the prep.

    MY HOUSE HAS BEEN STAINED WITH TWP 100 series in the past. It needs to be recoated. How do I know if I just need to clean it versus stripping it? What would the process be to strip it?

    Strip if wearing unevenly. Clean if not. These articles explain the process:

    I live in Austin TX, which is better 100 or 1500 for a new pine fence.

    Fore a vertical fence in Texas you should use the 1500.

    I have a deck that is used frequently. Last year I applied TWP 101 to unsealed cedar decking. In the high traffic area the stain is wearing off. In some area bare wood is exposed. What is recommended for surface preparation before reapplying TWP 101.
    Bob

    Use the Gemini Restore Kit for the prep for another coat to the floors.

    Do you need a mask (resperator)to apply?
    How long is does odor last?
    Decks are approx. 15 years old but but sanded down to bare wood and cleaned with deck brightner. should I use 100 or 1500?
    Thanks Jer[ Only want to apply one coat!!

    You do not have to use a mask when applying. Odor does linger for a few days or so. Use the 100 if allowed otherwise the 1500.

    can i apply 2nd light coat on deck after 24 hrs of first coat? Deck is 5 plus yrs old. Also how long before I can put furniture back on deck or have food traffic?

    If you do it must be a very light coat of the stain. Wait at least 24 hours for the furniture.

    New Cedar:
    The TWP-100 application instructions call for two coats, wet-on-wet. Does the coverage-per-gallon take this into consideration? I need to cover new, rough cedar (~ 1500 sq ft) - would I need 10 gal? 15 gal? 30 gal?

    150-200 sq. feet for the first coat and 200-300 for the second coat. Averages to about 100-125 sq. feet for two coats per gallon. You will need somewhere between the 10-15 gallons most likely.

    I have a 12 year old pressure treated deck that has not been treated before. Just within the past week, cleaned it and cleaned it. The wood appears to be in good shape with nice wood grain. I live in West Virginia, which TWP product do you recommend?

    Use the 100 Series

    JEREMY KERSLAKE:
    This deck is about 15 years old and was stained with a behr product originally. Since then it has been stripped and had CWF applied. This has also been stripped although there are still residues here and there. The deck railing is still coated with CWF and is in good condition where not exposed to sun. The deck was then stained twice with woodguard about 6 and 4 years ago. It has since been pressure washed and needs to be restained. The homeowner will sell the house this year and has a budget that does not cover stripping everything. The deck and rail do not need to be perfect but look maintained and good at a glance. Solid stain is not an option. What would TWP look like over these slightly different surfaces? Any other advice?

    You cannot use TWP on top of these other brands. It will not work or adhere well.
