    .. 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?

    we have just received rough sawn cedar boards for a vertical board and batten siding we would like to use TWP stain
    can we apply it before putting on the house or is it necessary for the wood to weather first?

    Dale, you can use either series but it does depend on your state if the 100 is legal. Any high quality caulk is okay.

    I am unsure what stain to use on our log home 100 or 1500 series. Also what caulk is best to use with your stain. I was told that you have to use an oil base caulk and was recommended Titebond. What is your opinion?

    tim m, best to strip off the Olympic first and brighten before using the TWP. This way it will properly adhere and perform like it should.

    Tina, best to use the Gemini Restore Kit for the prep and we can ship this to you from our website.

    Just so you know, new wood is supposed to weather for 4-12 months, prepped properly, and only 1 coat of TWP should be applied the first time.
