    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 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.

    Location is Georgia
    Wood is PT, installed 7 months ago
    Wood is untreated,
    no previous treatment/stain
    deck floor, posts, rails, steps , lattice skirting (all about 400 sq ft)
    Advice about how long to wait to use this stain and any other info you can offer.
    Thanks.....hard to locate in Augusta GA.

    You should be okay now. Prep with Gemini Kit and just one coat of TWP for the first time.

    cori, you can use the 100 Series for both. Maybe Honeytone for cedar and Dark Oak for posts.

    We have a new cedar wood fence (completed aprox. a month ago) with green treated posts that are off set from the cedar pickets. I believe it is recommended we use TWP 100 for the cedar can we use the same for the posts? We would like to do the cedar a lighter 'natural' color and the posts a darker brown color, what colors would you recommend for this? We live near Lexington Kentucky (central part of the state)
    Thanks, Cori Withers

    After stripping, should I wait until deck is dry before applying twp 100? After applying twp 100, how long should we stay off of the deck? Temps will be in the 60's - 70's for the application and drying.

    After stripping apply brightener right away. Let dry for 48 hours before applying. Stay off for 24 hours after stain.

    Estimate home many years will the tinted TWP 1500 last on new cedar fence...

    On vertical fencing it can last 4-8 years.

    My husband recently stained our deck made of redwood with TWP 100 (redwood color). It is close to a year old with no prior stain. He followed the cleaning/brightening steps. We're thinking he went a little heavy on the staining because we have some areas that remained shiny after drying. Also, we have some ruins on the upper pergola header and was wondering if this can be fixed somehow. Also, any suggestions on the shiny spots? He only applied one coat...is that sufficient?

    Yes on the one coat. Try wiping down the shiny spots with some paint thinner to remove the excess stain that has not absorbed into the wood.
