    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.

    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.

    Bob, you should not apply TWP on top of the Sikkens. It needs to be removed first by either sanding or stain stripping. Once removed it would work very well.

    age- 10yrs. Cedar (pressure treated) good cond. The deck has been treated before with Sikkins. It is peeling off and I am not happy with it. I want to clean the main posts and facia board and apply this stain. I have a cedar siding house and all looks good except the mentioned areas. How will this product work on the cleaned pressure treated cedar posts?

    Trevor, yes too much stain can create issues. Best to apply every 2 years or so to a horizontal surface area.

    How often do you need to restain with TWP? I stained with Dark Oak last summer and was wondering if I need to reapply ? Sometimes with other stains, it can get too thick and peel if too much is one the wood.

    Thanks

    Brock, yes we deliver to Richmond VA and it is best to apply two coats wet on wet:

    Susan, yes TWP comes in a clear. Clear protects the wood but does not offer UV protection from graying.
