    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.

    Tim, TWP cannot be applied on top of a solid so you must remove all of it. Must likely by sanding.

    Deck is about 20 yrs old in Minnesota. Believe it is pressure treated. Overall wood is solid, with a couple of very small areas of decay (on end grain). Stained last year with a solid water based product. Stain peeled after 6 mo. Deck has been pressure washed and 95% of the existing stain is gone. Any suggestions?

    Anne, please read this: http://www.twpstainhelp.com/twp-stain-wet-on-wet-application/

    No it will not stop dog urine or scratches.

    This is probably a stupid question but I'm not an expert deck refinisher.
    When you say 2 coats, wet on wet, how do you do that with out wrecking the first coat, when you have to step on it to do the second coat? Also, I have a small dog that scratches the steps of the deck when he comes up them and sometimes does his "thing" on the deck. How does this stain hold up to those things?

    eck, yes that would be correct. Use the TWP 100 for MN. 115 Honeytone is the lightest color.

    1. Deck was built last year in Nov.
    2. Cedar
    3. Good, will need to clean/brighten.
    4. No prior stain.
    5. Upper/raised deck and stairs.
    I am leaning toward using TWP and Restore-A-Deck Cleaner & Brightener based on what I have read. Do you agree? And, if so, which TWP product would you recommend for the MN weather. I would like to achieve a look that is very close to the natural look of the wood. I see TWP100 is still VOC compliant in MN. Is this the way to go? Could you also recommend a color. Thanks.

    JohnBek, use the Restore A Deck Stripper and Restore A Deck Brightener for the prep on the older siding. Use the Gemini Restore Kit for the newer siding. Stain with the TWP.
