    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.

    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.

    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.

    Our deck is approx. 16x25 and not covered, about 10 years old made of pressure treated wood. Initially used a semi-transparent stain. 2 years later re-did it. Not satisfied with the results, and 2 years ago used Cabot solid stain and still looked crappy, but after the brutal winter this year, is flaking and peeling. Time to re-do it, but unsure what product to use that will last.

    You cannot use TWP on top of other stains or solid stains. You will need to remove the Cabot first by sanding all of it off. Once removed you can use the TWP after prepping with the Gemini Restore Kit.

    Ed Bolt:
    My PTP deck was built last summer and I stained it using tinted Thompson's Water Seal. This spring there was a lot of mold/mildew and the stain was chipping and peeling up in several areas. I used a stain stripper and brightener that removed about 90% of the stain. There were still stubborn areas of stain that would not come up even after repeated applications of the stripper. I sanded the remaining spots to remove the stain and also did a light sanding over the entire deck. What do I need to do to prep the deck for TWP 100 stain? Will power washing the deck be sufficient or do I need to use a deck wash and brightener again?

    It would help to use a deck cleaner and brightener with the pressure washing to help aid the TWP in this. It will absorb deeper into the wood grain.

    I just stained my swing frame I built out of Pecky Cypress. This was new wood dried, and plained smooth. Should I put a second coat? If so how soon should this be done?

    No, only 1 coat on new wood. did you let it weather for 4+ months and prep correctly first?
