    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.

    I built a new split rail cedar fence. Should I use TWP 100 or 1500? I would like a natural cedar tone look. Thank you!

    Hi, we live in Seattle and have an older cedar deck to which we added on a new section. It's all 2x4 clear, I have already sanded the old portion down to bare wood and looking at finishing the old and new with TWP clear stain. Which product do you recommend?
    Thank you,
    Chris

    Do you have a link to a project finished with TWP100 dark oak? I really think it's a striking color but it might be just too dark

    We do not have a picture. Might want to get a sample from the site to test color.

    Deck was built last July, this will be the first stain applied. The wood is Yellow Wood. The wood is in excellent shape. It is a 20' by 10' covered deck that receives some morning sun. Is this the product I need to use and can I buy it locally in Kansas City area, on the Kansas side?

    Prep first with the Gemini Restore kit and stain with the 100 Series. We personally do not have dealers there and we ship online.

    Steve, use the 100 Series for this and prep first with the Gemini Restore Kit if gray and dirty or the Restore A Deck Stripper if you have an old coating to remove.

    1) 10yrs in NC
    2) pressure treated
    3) Good shape but has some black and green mold 95% comes off with power washer and mild bleach / soap mix
    4)Yes, TWP
    5)10X12 deck (some mild checking)and 12x16 covered screened in porch.
    Note - liked TWP product except that it seems to sits on top rather than penetrate. Have grey color and would like to stay with that. Is there a more penetrating option?

    Kurt, not in the gray there is not another option. The grays have more pigment than the other colors so they do penetrate a little less.

    1. Age of wood unknown prob 10 years+
    2. Type of wood unknown prob standard home depot pressure treated lumber
    3. Wood is splintered and was grayed
    4. Thompsons Water Seal Applied 3 years ago.
    5. Looking at around 475sf to be restored.

    The wood is pretty splintered in spots, was going to replace some boards and then looking to I guess strip, sand and then use either twp 100 or 1500, was looking for some suggestions. I live in Northern NJ. Thank you!

    Tom, use the Gemini Restore Kit for prep and the 1500 Series for NJ.

    Mike, yes just lightly clean and brighten for the prep and just apply one coat:

    I stripped cleaned brightened and applied TWP 100 cedar tone last spring. It has been the only finish to last a summer and still looks good on the vertical posts and pergola. I would like to just do the decking itself this year. Other then the stripping should I still clean and brighten before I apply the stain? ?

    Ron, yes the 100 would be the correct choice for this.
