    4 year old cedar deck. Was coated with twp 100 series 3 years ago and is needing redone. I have pressure washed the deck and it looks pretty good. Do I have to use a brightener or can I just reapply twp? When applying twp would you recommend one coat or two?

    Clean and brighten for prep with Gemini Restore A Deck Kit. Apply 2 light coats with wet on wet application.

    What is the difference between the 100 and the 1500 series? Is all TWP semitransparent stain oil based?

    All TWP that we offer are oil based semi-transparent. See this for more info:

    Stained my pressure treated deck last summer with TWP 100 cedar tone. We really don't care for the color and would like to apply a second coat of a darker color. Is that possible? Or do I need to stick with the cedar tone color. What should I do to prep the deck for the second coat? Last summer I used your cleaner, brightner and I sanded it.

    HI Mike, you should be able to go darker in color as long as you prep first with the Gemini Restore Kit and pressure washing.

    Stained my deck last fall, and it looked a little blotchy. In early March, now, there is not the luster that I envisioned, and the water on the deck is pooling not beading.

    What can or should I do?

    Mike

    TWP is not supposed to have a shine as it is a penetrating stain, not filming. It also is a breathable coating so it is not going to bead water but "shed" water. Since it was a little blotchy last year, we would suggest a very light cleaning to remove any dirt. Apply a very light coat of the TWP. This should even out the appearance and give the deck an enhanced the overall appearance as well.

    I stained my deck about a year ago it worked great. Recently I noticed a burn mark on one of the boards... I preceeded to sand the burn mark out... When I tried resanding the stain would not take now the board does not match. Is there anything I can do? Should I have waited longer after I sanded to reapply stain?

    When you sand the wood is reduces the TWP's ability to soak in. This could result in a lighter color and possibly some filming of the stain on top of the wood instead of soaking into the wood. Not much you can do about it besides letting it weather after the sanding for a few months.

    Jim Pillans:
    Can I apply TWP to a Cedar fence that already has Thompson waterproofer Plus tinted wood protector which I applied 4 years ago?

    Hello, TWP or any other stain cannot be applied on top of the Thompsons without removal of the Thompsons first. It will need to be stripped and or sanded.

    I used TWP 100 on my 10 year old never sealed PT pine deck and it looks great. Excellent product. The only problem is that I put down painters tape to protect my painted siding and some stain wicked under the tape and dried. I tried mineral spirits but it did nothing. Do you have any suggestions on how to remove it? Can it be sanded and repainted with good results?

    Try a water based graffiti remover cleaner. You can find this in the paint aisles.

    I have a new deck made from treated lumber. Not sure how long the boards sat at the lumber yard before I used them, but wanted to know how soon I could apply TEP 100. Also, what is the recommended application method, can I spray it on?

    4 years old cedar deck
    direct sunlight 1/2 day
    Recently removed old Skkins SRD by a 4-disc sander using 36 grit
    Cleaned and pressure washed but still some gray (post sanding color)
    temps are 70 during the day but 45 at night


    Try a wood brightener and then stain after. Use the TWP 100 if allowed in your state. If not, use the 1500 Series.
