    I like this color for my hunter green metal roofed poplar cabin. What would you recommend to closely match this.

    Don, if rough cedar you can apply right away. Smooth and you need to wait and prep first.

    Webstir, use the Gemini Restore Kit for the prep.

    I am staining my cedar rough shingle siding. It previously was sealed with thompsons oil based water seal ( which didnt last even a year) eastern exposure and I was wondering if I need to clean the rough cedar first and what would be best so I don't damage the appearance ?

    I have 2 yr old cedar deck that was finished with TWP 120. I would like to recoat to freshen it up. It's in excellent condition. Can I use Deck Maintain (a Gemini product) to prep,or do I need to use something with sodium precarbonate in it, and a brigtener as your web site suggests?

    gpgorman, you should not put TWP on top of other brands. It will not work at it's maximum potential. Best to strip off the old stain so the wood is free of other coatings.

    I stained the house 8 years ago with Olympic Oil Base Semi-Transparent Exterior Stain and I want to try your 102 stain. I tested a small section with your sample bottle and it penetrated really well and looks good. Do you see any reason it would not work?

    Anne, only reapply if needed. Most likely you will not have to do anything unless this is new wood. Please read this about maintenance coats:

    Just finished staining my cedar deck and railings with the TWP 101. What should I expect next Spring? We live in Minnesota and the deck/stairs are shaded until about 10 am and then sun on the deck until it goes down at night.
    Will I be needing to put a new coat on next Spring and if I do, will I need to prepare it again?

    Jason, rough cedar can be stained right away. No need to wait. Just one coat though. We would need a total sq. footage to give an accurate idea.

    .. and (4) 6x6x9' posts


    Jason Seck:
    I'm getting ready to build a pergola out of new rough western red cedar lumber and have heard that TWP is the best stain. I'd like to stain all of the lumber before assembly. However, I've read that the wood should weather for a few months first for smooth wood. Is this the case for rough cedar as well? Is the VOC the main difference between 100 and 1500? How much would I need to stain (16) 2x8x16', (23) 1x4x16', and (2) 2x8x10' boards?

    Thanks,
    Jason

    Heinz, prep the wood lightly first with the Gemini Restore Kit. Stain with only 1 coat of the TWP for the first time.

    Hi, I have gotten myself into a big project. Our deck (approximately 8 years old) was sealed with a Flood product. My plan was to clean the deck this year, but the old sealant/stain looked horrible after cleaning. I have now stripped the deck and cleaned again. I am looking for the best product to seal my deck. I want to add little to no color. I also would like to use a product that I will not have to ever strip again. I'm willing to clean and reseal. The stripper has to go. Needless to say I am sick of spending my summer working on my deck and not enjoying it. Any advice on the best product? TWP keeps coming up on all the discussion boards and web searches. Thanks for any suggestions.

    Deck age - 8 years
    Wood - pressure treated lumber
    Previous stain - Flood oil base
    Large deck with one staircase. All stripped and cleaned.

    Jeff, TWP cannot be applied on top of a paint or solid stain.

    Anne, touching up is hard to day as it may show the spot treatments. I would try it though as it would be much easier.

    Hail storm here in Minnesota last Tuesday and I had just stained my spindles the previous Friday. I now have many pits in the stained wood. There are only a couple of spots that broke all the way through to bare wood. Do I need to re-sand and re-stain or can I just try to stain the little spots that broke through to the bare wood?
