    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.

    Kathleen Patton, TWP is not legal for Canada's VOC laws.

    Ge, you should be okay with the temps. Allow to dry for 48 hours after the prep.

    LarryL, you cannot apply TWP on top of Thompsons. It would need to be removed first.

    Just bought a house with a 3 yr. old wood fence. A neighbor said it had been treated with Thompsons. It looks pretty good and has very little fading. Could I apply TWP 100 over the Thompsons and expect good results? I am looking at about 2500 sq ft of fence so cleaning would not be a minor project.

    I have a pressure washed and sanded older deck with treated spruce (I believe). I'm located in Quebec, Canada. I'd like to try your TWP stain if it can be shipped to Vermont which is close by. Which stain would be better to withstand the extremes - TWP 100 or 1500?

    Drew, lightly rinse with water for the prep. If the wood is rough sawn, apply two light coats wet on wet. Lightly spray on a first coat and apply another coat immediately with a brush or stain pad. We need a total sq. footage to give an idea on quantity needed.

    George, prep with the Gemini Restore Kit before reapplying with the TWP.
