    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.

    Jackie, more than likely she used a stain that darkened in color to turn brown. Nothing last more then 6-8 years on vertical siding.

    45 years
    Redwood siding
    Some raised grain and some fading but still brown
    Original owner says it was not stained only sealed but I question her memory because every salesperson I've talked to has said that they can't believe the wood would still be brown after all these years. They also say that there is nothing on the market that would be as maintenance-free as whatever was used. Is one of your products longer lasting and more maintenance-free than the others? Do you have any idea what might have been available 45yrs ago that would've lasted this long?

    12 mo (built July 2012)
    Cedar
    Excellent condition
    Stained with 1 coat of TWP 101 Cedartone
    Decking on southwest corner of Minneapolis home

    July 2012 we installed a new cedar deck after sanding and staining boards with one coat of TWP. We tried applying second coat within 10-60 minutes but second coat wouldn't dry -- maybe due to high humidity. One year later wood has now lightened and we want to apply additional TWP maintenance coat. Do we need to completely wash and brighten with Gemini products or can we just wash/scrub well with water and a little bleach? We'll wait 48 hrs to allow wood to dry first. If we need Gemini, where can we buy it locally?

    Anne, you should wipe them up unless you stain the floors within an hour.

    I'm using the twp 101 right now. I am staining the spindles and handrails first and then the floor boards. Do I need to do anything about little splatters that get on the floorboards?

    Latoya, use a stain stripper or wood cleaner for the prep and a pressure washing. Brighten when done. Stain with the TWP 100 or 1500 for this log home.

    TLM, TWP is not compatible with the Arbor Coat. It may blend but it also may peel where it lies on top of the Arbor Coat.

    Cedar, SE exposure in Michigan, about 10 years old, in good condition

    Previously covered with Benjamin Moore Arbor Coat, which has peeled terribly each year.

    i have been able to remove the Arbor sealer and most of the stain with Behr stripper, but there are places where the strain is still present.

    Difficult to sand because many board are slightly cupped.

    Can I recoat with TWP, matching color as closely as possible?

    Karen, strip off the Thompsons ans brighten the wood when done before applying the TWP.
