    We have a 1000 sq. foot covered porch, douglas fir, 20 years old, but completed sanded down to new wood. We will be staining just the floor of the porch as all railings, posts, etc. are painted. Is TWP 100 series a see-through stain or mostly opaque? The wood was painted for 20 years and after having it professionally sanded down to bare wood, the wood is gorgeous so we don't want to cover it up with an opaque stain. Would we need to wet down the wood and wait 48 hours like new wood? I understand only one coat.

    How often would maintenance be required? We live in the foothills of California near Yosemite National Park and have mild winters (snow maybe twice in the winter) and very hot summers.

    Thanks for your help.

    Lou Selva, you cannot use the Cap Cod as a base coat then add a different color on top. The gray colors are closer to a semi-solid and the other colors are semi-transparents. I would suggest getting a sample or two to test.

    I live in Sarasota Florida. I have a 20 year old wood dock that I would like to protect and make look better. My friend painted is dock with twp 100 cape cod gray.This color looks more like a paint than a stain, does it protect better because it cost more. My Dock is made out of aged pressure treated wood. would one of the other stains such as rustic look more natural like a stain and give a old dock a natural look. My friend has 7 cans of cape cod grey, can I use that as a base coat and then coat with other color of your stains, or is it to opaque?

    Took, TWP is not a "builder grade" of lower quality.

    What state are you located in?

    New western cedar wood fence

    I am trying to choose between 1500 series and 100 series. I have read that then 100 series is 'builder' grade (which in my mind is lower quality ).

    No need to wait for rough sawn wood. Please read this:

    Built 115 feet of 6 foot by 5/8 cedar fence rough sawn. The fence was erected a month ago and is losing color. I researched and you state the wood should be 4 months old before application of TWP-100. I live in san diego that typically has low humidity; would the time frame be shorter?

    JeffreyFranklin, the lighter the color the quicker it will turn gray. You wood type will require an application of stain annually or sooner. I would get some samples to test. Maybe Pecan.

    Age of wood is 5 months
    Type of wood is Afromosia (African Teak)
    Condition is excellent
    Not yet stained
    Outdoor deck in Nevada, strong sun, hot and cold but no snow, rarely below 30 deg.
    We are trying to find an oil that will do the least to hide the original color but at the same time we don't want the color to go gray. its adjacent to an indoor walnut floor so if it had to lean toward a color it would be best to be toward brown or walnut/teak and not a reddish hue. any advice and do we just pressure wash prior to application? and is 100 the best fit, thanks!

    Gre, look at the TWP 105 Cape Cod Gray. Coverage is about 150-200 sq. feet per gallon.

    Looking for a stain for one and half year old pressure treated pine on a dock and outdoor porch with roof overhang located in Florida panhandle on the gulf. Prefer something with gray color. Wood is in good condition and has not been previously stained or treated.

    How much square feet will one gallon cover?

    Spray and back brush the barn. You cannot apply TWP on top of paint. You would have to remove the paint 100% by sanding it all off as a stain stripper will not remove paint.

    I wish to stain (semi-transparent) pine boards on my barn. The wood is three years old, and has been installed from 6 months ago until today. They have not been treated and are rough cut, so I plan to spray.

    I also have some pressure treated fencing that was painted white and the paint is largely warn away. I would like to do the fence in the accent color of the barn.

    Barn = Redwood or Rustic
    Trim and fence in Walnut

    Tracey, best to prep first with the Gemini Restore Kit that we sell.

    Larry, clean it first for prep. You could use the TWP in the Clear. It will preserve the wood but allow the color to oxidize/gray naturally.

    Lacey, Lacey, since it was 7 hours later I am pretty confident it will be alright. Just let the rain dry off the wood and make sure there is not any severe blotchiness.

    There was no rain on the forecast but of course my luck it starts raining (lightly) about 7 hours after we finished staining our deck. It is pooling on some of the boards with a oily look. What should we expect when it dries and how do we fix if the stain is compromised?

    We have a redwood above our front porch that is 24 yrs. old. It has not been treated with anything since installation and receives many hours of Texas sun each day. The wood is gray and somewhat rough from aging. What should I use to treat this wood? I don't want to restore the color of the redwood, but want to treat it for longevity.
