    New wood, cypress

    We have a new construction and I want my painter to do 2 coats. Can you describe the procedure for putting two coats on? Is there an electronic copy of this procedure you can send me?

    Nancy, if you sand than it would be best to use the Gemini Restore Kit after for the prep. Only one coat if you sand smooth.

    Hi, I live in WA state and my deck wood is two years old and the Sikkens that we applied two years ago is peeling off. The Sikkens did not penetrate the wood. If we sand the Sikkens off, how long do we have to wait to apply TWP 100?

    Michelle Curry, make sure to remove the old stain first. Clean and brighten the entire deck when done. Use the 100 Series for NC.

    Dianne M,

    More like 100 sq. feet for 2 coats. First coat goes on about 150-200 and the second is 200-300. Averages to about 100 sq. feet for two coats.

    I'm considering this stain for my new boathouse and dock on fresh water lake in Florida. Wood is new dense or better grade of pressure treated and paraffin treated Southern Yellow Pine.

    How long do I need to wait before this stain can be applied to new construction?

    We have added on to an existing deck, so have both new and older wood to stain. Older section has been stained before--about 4-5 years old. In good condition, but stain is "flaking" up in sections of older deck. We live in Mountains of North Carolina--Blue Ridge/Appalachian. Lots of ice in winter, rain in summer, humid all the time. What will give us the best protection overall? How about maintenance? Think it is pine...

    Hi, I'd like to restain my 10+ year old deck with TWP 100 in Dark Oak. I'm not sure why type of wood was used, but the desk surface has been power-washed to remove the old stain (Behr Weatherproof Stain) and dirt.

    I see the description that one gallon covers 100-200 sq feet - but does that figure cover 1 coat or 2?

    My deck measure 14 x 10 and I have 5 stairs up to the deck along with the railings that need to be stained.

    I assume I should purchase 3 gallons, but just wanted to check first. Thanks in advance for your help!

    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.

    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?
