    Redwood deck 1 yr. old, cleaned with Gemini restore-A-deck as instructed..applied first coat of TWP-100 yesterday, then realized instructions said to apply 2nd coat within 30 minutes after first..too late in the day to do so..any problems with applying 2nd coat today or in a couple of days (since rain is predicted tomorrow)?

    Hard to ay but it could potentially be an issue. It may dry slow and leave some shiny spots. It would be better to leave alone and apply a light coat in late Fall or early Spring.

    I have a treated lumber deck that is eight years old. The wood has slight cracking but otherwise it is in good shape. Most of the previous Cabot stain is worn off. I live in Northern Wisconsin so the deck is exposed to full sun and freeze thaw cycles.

    Strip off the remaining Cabot and use the wood brightener when done. Stain with the TWP 100 is allowed in your state or the 1500 if not.

    I have a 15 yr old pressure treated deck and want to use TWP 100 with a stain that looks like natural light oal. It has been pressured washed. You said to apply wet on wet, how much time between applications? Can I purchased this in our area 20708?

    For your zip code you cannot use the 100 but you can use the 1500. Please read this about application: http://www.twpstainhelp.com/need-some-help-with-twp-stains/

    Please strip or sand off the CWF first. Brighten the wood when done. Use the 100 if allowed in your stater otherwise the 1500.

    TMerwald:
    It rained about 9-10 hrs after applying TWP (cedar tone)to an 8 month old cedar deck. (It was powerwashed/prepped a few days before applying). Will it end up peeling down the road?

    Doubt it as water cannot wash out oil.

    I have a 17 yr old Cedar deck with some boards only 6 months old. I have power washed it this Sunday 5-18-14. The deck boards are 90% bare wood and vertical surfaces are 10%-80% bare wood. It has had a few coats of TWP 100 in the past. The deck in 9 ft in the air with a concrete patio below.

    What else should I do to pre-treat it?

    If using the same color of TWP than you should be good to proceed with the staining.

    We received our color samples yesterday after playing around with them we found we like the look of the honeytone and rustic combined, is this something you can do before shipping to us? We will be ordering 3-4 5 gallon pails.

    We do not custom mix them but you can on your end with no issues.

    I have a 400sq.ft. pooldeck 7years old and in pretty good shape. I used behr semi-trans.sealer but cant get more than 2years before peeling and complety disappearing in high traffic area(chlorine?).What can I expect from twp,what product is reccomended and how much is needed for said pool deck.

    2 years is normal for a pool deck. Use the TWP 1500 for this. 3-4 gallons for 2 coats.

    I have a 260 sq ft cedar fence (sq ft total for both sides) that was installed last September. I'm in Michigan- which stain would you recommend ? 100 or 1500. I'm thinking I need the Gemini kit to prep & want to use Dark Oak color. Thoughts? How many gallons? Thanks in advance.

    bec116:
    my pressure treated wood deck is three years old. It was stained with twp 1500 now I need to do it again. I was wondering How to apply the stain? I was thinking of just using a rag to wipe it on waiting 10 minutes and wiping again.

    I would not use a rag but a stain pad for application.

    Ted Heutsche:
    I am currently designing a pergola for a pool in Huntsville, AL and I am curious about TWP 100. We are using smooth cedar that has not been stained. I was wondering if you could recommend a color. I would prefer that the cedar stays a natural color. I know some cedar tone stains turn more of a yellow/orange color. Is that the case with TWP 100? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
