    The brightener will lighten a little. Coverage is about 150-200 sq. feet per gallon.

    We applied the first coat of TWP1500 stain to a pier and open Boathouse that is located on Lake Jacksonville, TX. After it dried we have some very glossy areas where it appears the stain is not dry but it actually is dry. Can you advise why the glossy areas & how we can correct?

    I have a house with redwood siding that had solid stain on that I stripped off with a power washer. Will go back with redwood tone or cedar tone (I want redwood) 100. The siding is clean but more brown than the reddish color I expected. Do I need to use a brightener and will it bring out more natural color? What do you suggest? Also, will the recommended coverage do the job?[img]http://www.flickr.com/photos/19154469@N07/9694844656/sizes/o/in/photostream/[/img][img]http://www.flickr.com/photos/19154469@N07/9694848104/sizes/o/in/photostream/[/img]

    Jan, you can wipe the excess stain with a rag and mineral spirits to speed up the drying.

    I applied the 100 stain on previously stained wood after prepping it as you described. It went on and dried beautifully except for a couple of spots here and there. They are still tacky to the touch and a bit shiny. How long will it take to dry completely? And if it doesn't what can I do to remove the stickiness? thanks for your help.

    Ryan12, for 2 coats of the TWP 100 you would need 4-5 gallons. Make sure you clean and brighten the wood first with the Gemini Restore Kit.

    I am about to stain my deck for the first time. It's been stained before but by the previous homeowners, so I don't know what they used or when it was stained. It's fairly grayed and in need of a stain. The deck is about 530 sq. ft. How much stain will I need?

    Jay Jensen, if that wood is that old you should do the two light coats wet on wet.

    TomS, use the Gemini Restore Kit and the TWP 100 or 1500 for your deck.

    I have a deck 8'x16'. Its pressure treated lumber. Never been stained. Approx. 10+ yrs.old. Its aged and weathered, coarse, has mold.

    What can you recommend to clean, brighten, and protect? I've been looking at your TWP100.

    NewDeckOwner, use the Gemini Restore Kit witht he pressure washing. Let wood dry 48 hours after prepping or heavy rain. Make sure the TWP penetrates into the wood and does not dry on top of the wood.

    Our deck was installed in April 2012. It began to curl, warp and shrink by August 2012. Our carpenter told us that this meant it was time to seal/stain it. Unfortunately, we did not have enough good weather to finish the entire deck before wet and winter weather. However, the areas that we did seal last year are already peeling - the cedar benches and the treated steps. We live in Michigan and it gets full sun most of the day (faces east). We powerwashed it first, let it dry for a day and then applied two coats by brush, waiting about 15 - 30 min in between coats. Any advice to keep the stain from peeling now that we are preparin gto coat the rest of the deck? Also, how dry does the deck need to be after a rain/powerwash to begin staining (can we stain when it rained the prior night)?

    Ralf, yes you should clean and brighten after the sanding. I would wait a month first. Clear will not prevent UV praying. Might want to read this:

    I have just stripped and sanded an old redwood deck. Deck was about 20yrs od and was previously painted. Do i need to clean/brighten the deck after sanding again. After sanding, the deck has a beautiful red/pink colour to the wood, but this doesnt last too long once exposed. Can i stain the deck after sanding or do i need to wait and then clean the deck before staining. Also i want to preserve the redwood color as much as possible without darkening too much. What color stain would you recommend. i was originally planning to use a clear stain, but the twp only seems to come in a color range.

    Jose,

    Prep first with the Gemini Restore Kit. Only apply 1 coat of the TWP the first time staining.
