    I wish to stain (semi-transparent) pine boards on my barn. The wood is three years old, and has been installed from 6 months ago until today. They have not been treated and are rough cut, so I plan to spray.

    I also have some pressure treated fencing that was painted white and the paint is largely warn away. I would like to do the fence in the accent color of the barn.

    Barn = Redwood or Rustic
    Trim and fence in Walnut

    Tracey, best to prep first with the Gemini Restore Kit that we sell.

    Larry, clean it first for prep. You could use the TWP in the Clear. It will preserve the wood but allow the color to oxidize/gray naturally.

    Lacey, Lacey, since it was 7 hours later I am pretty confident it will be alright. Just let the rain dry off the wood and make sure there is not any severe blotchiness.

    There was no rain on the forecast but of course my luck it starts raining (lightly) about 7 hours after we finished staining our deck. It is pooling on some of the boards with a oily look. What should we expect when it dries and how do we fix if the stain is compromised?

    Thanks,
    Lacey

    We have a redwood above our front porch that is 24 yrs. old. It has not been treated with anything since installation and receives many hours of Texas sun each day. The wood is gray and somewhat rough from aging. What should I use to treat this wood? I don't want to restore the color of the redwood, but want to treat it for longevity.

    Thanks,
    Larry Cox

    I applied Ready Seal about four months ago to a portion of my privacy fence but am now going to stain the rest with TWP and in a darker color. How much prep will be required for the portion with Ready Seal? Fence is seven years old and this is first stain since it was built. Not cedar, pine maybe.

    What is the minimum temperature for application on my deck? I have one coat on now but need to apply a second coat for the best appearance.

    In most scenarios TWP will about 18-36 months on horizontals and 3-6 years on verticals before a maintenance coat is needed.

    How many years should this stain last before having to reapply?

    Lisa, all new wood should season for 4+ months, even kiln dried. TWP stains are semi-transparents.

    Can any of your products be used on a 2 month old kiln dried pine (Yellawood)?
    Is there a transparent product ?
    Thanks!

    Elliott Nowels:
    Stained house and barn with TWP 501 cedartone several years ago. Need to do the job again. Also need to do big adjoining deck. Q: Would 1501 be the new product to use on the cedar?
    Also Q: Would 101 cedartone be a better, laster-longing product for the deck that would still be close to matching the color?
    THANKS.

    I would stay with the 1501 as it is the replacement for the 501.

    I applied TWP 116 to a new cypress deck last summer by cloth saturated with stain followed by wiping excess with a dry rag. It looked very nice and repelled water very well at first. This summer it began to turn dark (almost black) and spotted, and it lost it's ability to repel water. What is the best treatment plan now?

    if I'm applying TWP 100 to a deck that previously had SW semitransparent water based stain (deckscapes). do i need to strip the deck of the existing stain? do I need to strip all the pickets and railings. thanks

    Yes you would need to remove all of the SW if you want the TWP to work correctly.

    Steven, the Clear will not prevent UV graying. Must have a tint/color.
