    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.

    I have all cedar TG siding which I used Cabot on two years ago. My new addition is about 4 months and need to be stained. I didn't like Cabot and was going to use TWP on it. Which would be best for this and what do I need to do to restrain the older siding .

    Oh no. I'm glad I asked. No way I can remove it all...this deck is huge. How depressing. :(

    Thank you very much. Oh man. :(

    Kate, you cannot apply the TWP on top of the Cabot. It must be removed first for proper prep.

    1. 25 years old
    2. Cedar
    3. Horizontal surfaces are rough - We are in Michigan. Spindles are smooth.
    4. Stained with Cabot Semi-transparent 3 years ago.

    5. Spindles are in great shape - still beads up and shiny (unsure of where the shine comes from?). Horizontal surfaces nearly bare. Was power washed this weekend.

    Will it be ok to use TWP 100 on it this summer? Will I need to use a cleaner/brightener prior to stain? What color is comparable to Cabot Honey Teak? I would need 3 gallons.

    Mike Chu, you cannot use TWP on a painted deck. If you were to use TWP you would have to remove the paint 100% by sanding the entire deck.

    15 year old pressure treated southern yellow pine deck in western wisconsin, very grey and never been stained.
    I will chemically clean and pressure wash to prep.

    Need to know # of gallons needed of TWP 100. Also, what is delivery time after placing order?

    The 1500 has a higher solid content. The 100 dries a little faster. Otherwise they look similar and perform about the same.

    Hi,

    What is the difference between the twp100 and twp1500 besides the VOC compliant in the twp1500.

    Thanks.

    tavery, you can order the Restore A Deck Stripper and the Restore A Deck Brightener separately. You do not need the cleaner if using the stripper.

    JoeC, the 200 series is for shakes and shingles. It can be applied to a deck but it will take days or even weeks to fully cure. Please read this about new decking:
