    How long should I wait before staining my new deck? Treated wood was used and it has been about 4 months.

    HL Manning, either would be fine but the 1500 has a little more solids so it will give slightly better UV protection.

    Western Cedar fencing 160 ft. installed in spring. 80 ft. cedar fence 4 yrs. old just power washed today, previously finished with CWF and was peeling. What product do you recommend? 100 or 1500?
    Thanks

    1. Yes it will be fine through the winter
    2. I would let the shingles weather as well

    I've been slowly building a treehouse constructed entirely of pressure-treated pine (deck, framing, siding, railing) and western red cedar roof shingles. It has all aged at a different rate since it has taken so long to construct, but the oldest wood has been exposed to the weather for about 4 months now while the newest wood is still wet from the store. None of it has been stained yet. I can see the decking (which has been up the longest) has faded quite a bit and will probably be gray in a couple months, while the newest wood is quite "yellow". I'd like to wait until Spring and let the wood age a little more before I stain it.

    My questions are these:
    1. Is the pressure-treatment enough to protect the wood for the next 5-6 months through the winter in TN?
    2. Is it better to let the cedar shingles age and turn gray before staining them? I'm debating whether to stain them before I install them (easier to get to).

    Lynn, you could try a very light re coat. If that does not work then you need to strip off the stain and start over.

    Ken B, I would use the 150 for this after prepping with the Restore A Deck Stain Stripper and Brightener.

    That is just mineral deposits from the rain water. Just wipe off with a wet rag.

    I stained my deck with the twp 101 in August and I notice that when it rains there are areas that will have a few dried water spots. Is this normal? I have not tried to rub or scrub the area to see if they come off.

    Heidi, strip off the old coatings and use the TWP. The Restore A Deck Stripper should work with a pressure washing. Brighten the wood when done with the stripper.

    John L, it means only one coat this year. No second coat. Best to do one now and a light maintenance coat to the horizontals next year.

    First application on 11 month old pressure treated lumber deck. It reads on help page to only apply one coat for the decks initial application . Does this mean to not apply the second wet coating after 4 hours? Or is one wet on wet considered one coating?

    Good condition. Has been stained once before with a Sikkens product, SRD. Before that it was stained by a previous owner and I don't know what product they used. I live in MN.
