    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.

    Large deck, one section is 25 years old the other about 8 years old. It's very bleached out. Can you put more than one coat on? Do you deliver to richmond virginia?

    Does TWP come in clear? I don't want to add any color to the wood, just protect it.
    Thank you

    Anne, it normal for knots to be lighter in color as the wood is much more dense there. Either just leave alone until next year or apply a very light coat to the floor this year.

    Went through all of the steps of stripping and applying TWP 101 last August in Minnesota and we are now seeing the deck again after a LONG winter. It looks great but it looks like a few of the knots in the wood no longer have the stain on them. Can just the knots be restained or should/could we add another coat to the whole deck?

    So if I use that kit to prep the deck, can I seal it the same day? How many days after it rains does it take for a deck to dry?

    Thanks

    Ray, yes you need to prep the deck first. Please read this about new wood:
    http://www.twpstainhelp.com/prepping-new-wood-for-twp-stains/

    There is a calculator to the right of this page that will give you an idea as to how much you need.

    For the spindles, brush around them and wipe off when done with a rag.

    Temperature for TWP is 45-90 degrees and wood has to be completely dry.

    I am looking to seal my deck on our house we just had built and finished back in Nov 2013. The deck was finished around the same time so it is about 5 months old and went through the winter without being sealed. I would say the condition and color of the wood is still good, I just want to seal it for the long term with the TWP 100 Cedartone since I believe the wood is cedar. The deck is about 12ft by 12ft so was curious how many gallons I would need? What is the best way to apply? There are also black/metal spindles so will I need to tape those off or just use a brush around them for the rails? Would like to completely seal the whole deck. Also in KS it rains quite a bit in the spring so what are the weather conditions I need to apply (temp and rain?) and since it is only 5 months old do I need to clean the deck? Sorry for all the questions, but I would appreciate the help since this is the first deck I have sealed before. Thank you
