    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!

    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.

    I have a deck around my pool that was constructed 10 months ago from non pressure treated lumber. I have cleaned and brightened the deck already and am looking for a semi transparent stain that will give my deck the best possible protection. I live in Tennessee so I get all types of harsh weather. I was thinking the 100 series but not sure on that choice. Any help would be appreciated.

    I just put in a new cedar fence and want to use the colored (non-clear) TWP 1500 on it 2 coats. How long can I expect it to last before it has to be re-applied?

    Clear has no UV protection from graying. Must choose one of the colors for UV protection. The Clear will gray in a a matter of months depending on exposure. Tints will last years on a fence.

    I pressure washed my fence last year but did not apply stain. Should I pressure wash it again before applying stain? Also, I don't know which stain is the best for my fence, which is pressure treated pine. Should I get the 100 series or the 1500 series?

    Yes prep again and use the 1500 for the fence.

    Sorry but TWP is not a linseed oil based stain. It is an oil based stain stain. TWP 1500 would be best.

    My board fencing was last 'treated' with creosote in ~1992, built in 1982 originally creosoted. We have 5 acres and 3 enclosed paddocks. I'm looking for the best semi-transparent linseed oil containing stain to cover/preserve the fencing. We also have wood hand rails and deck (~400SF). I heard TWP was highly rated. Which type should I use 1500 or 100? As I pressure clean the wood it is porous but actually in good shape;; after cleaning you can't tell there was creosote (~20yrs ago). The deck we've done twice in the last 5 years with local products Behr/ built 6 years ago.

    Hello,

    I have stripped my deck with Restore a deck
    and used the deck brightener. Now I am ready to stain. Can I use TWP 100 (I am in Rhode Island) and the deck is pressure treated and 3 years old. Deck is 700 feet. How much will I need and what is the best way to apply. Please advise.
    Thanks,
    David

    Jason, if it dries shiny than the stain did not penetrate. This is commonly done from improper prep or over application. It sounds like over application and we suggest one coat on new wood. Not much you can do now. Just let it dry and when it is time to redo you will need to strip it off.

    I applied TWP 120 "Pecan" oil based stain on our 6 month old cedar deck yesterday afternoon. The deck had never been treated with any other stain or finish. It had been bleach washed and pressure washed 3 days prior. I applied the stain per instructions on back of the can and stirred the stain regularly. I used a brush and applied a light initial coat that appeared to penetrate well..and then went back over it 30 minutes later with a 2nd coat. today its glossy looking and tacky. is that normal? how long should I expect it to take to dry? is there anything I should be doing to it at this point? thanks for any advise.

    Billy, clear coats with no pigment means there will be no UV protection from graying. Must have some tint for this. TWP does come in clear.

    For NH you can only use the TWP 1500 Series.

    what would i have to do to use this with a sprayer?

    Put the TWP into the sprayer and pull the trigger :) Kidding aside, TWP can be applied with a pump sprayer. Make sure it is a decent quality sprayer with a fan tip and. Make sure to back brush the TWP for uniformity.
