    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.

    Steve B:
    I would like to use TWP stain on my deck. Which series would be best? I'm leaning towards series 100.

    1. 1 year old
    2. Pressure treated (pine?)
    3. Great
    4. no
    5. 150 sq ft deck, full sun
    we live in MN, so we get very hot summers and very cold winters, as well as very dry falls and very humid springs.

    I will be using a wood cleaner/brightener first. Thank you.

    Use the 100 Series for this.

    16 years, treated pine, ok condition, previously treated with with flood solid stain, 250 sq food deck and 18 stairs

    For you to use the TWP you would need to remove the solid stain and that would require power sanding the Flood off the deck as stain strippers are ineffective on solid stains. Once removed you can use the TWP.

    1. Wood is 6 years old
    2. Treated pine
    3. good
    4. Wood has been stained with Cabot semisolid wood stain
    5. Deck around swimming pool and rail.

    If you would like to use the TWP you will need to remove the Cabot stain first with a stain stripper and possibly sanding. Once removed use the wood brightener.

    I have a newly built house that is only 1.5 years old and this is the second summer coming up and I was wanting to stain it with the TWP 100 cape cod gray. It is all treated lumber and is starting to get that gray look to it because it has not been stained yet. The back porch is out in the open and the front porch is covered. Please let me know if you feel this is the right stain for my project. Thanks.

    Yes it would be perfect for this project. You do have to prep first.

    Chad12345:
    Build deck 2 years ago with Cedar. Prepped and stained last year for the first time with cedartone 101 stain. We already have peeling. I want to redo it this year with something a little more brown in color instead of the orangish it currently is. I think Pecan is my best choice. Do I need to strip all the original stain off or can I go over the top? Any other prep work suggested?

    Clean and prep with the Gemini Restore kit and add one coat of the TWP Pecan. Do not over apply as that is why it may have peeled.

    My cedar deck is almost 20 years old and has never been stained. I have 1/4" wide by 1/4" deep cracks in some of the wood. Should or could I fill in these cracks before applying TWP 100? Located in SW Missouri. Any advice would be appreciated.

    Crack filler will not work for outside wood and the TWP will not stain/color the filler. Do not use the filler.
