    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!

    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.

    Carl, try the Gemini Restore Kit for the prep and apply a light coat of stain.

    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.

    New 750 sq ft cedar deck about 4 months old. Never stained or sealed. Plan to use 100 series clear. Will the cedar continue to "grey" with age or will the clear TWP lock in the current color?

    I have a pine fence that is 3-4 months old - it should be dry. What kind of application method should I use and how many coats do I need? I put down some dirt (river silt) for new grass in my yard which has splashed up on the fence with rain/watering. I was thinking it could simply be brushed off with a broom - will this be sufficient? I live in south Louisiana, so it is hot and humid much of the year. Also, the fence is about 315 feet with about 100 feet being 8 feet tall (rest is 6 feet tall) - how many 5 gal pales do I need?[/quote]

    I estimate the vertical portions (fencing boards) to be about 4200 square feet - this does not include the 3 rails (which total about 1000 linear feet of 2X4), the nooks and crannies between the fencing boards, or the roughly 50 vertical 4X4 posts (Total linear feet of about 330 ft).


    You will need about 6-8 of the 5 gallons pails.

    Jane333, VOCs are the major difference. Both perform similar.

    What is the difference between 100 and 1500 series? Is there any difference besides the VOCs? I already bought
    Behr stripper and brightener. Are they acceptable for the preparation process? My deck is 19 years old pressure treated with deep cracks. I am trying to choose between TWP and going with one of the last-ditch effort products like Restore.
