    Anne, best to prep the wood that you want to stain with the Gemini Restore Kit then apply the TWP 100 Series 2 coats wet on wet.

    Mitch, I would not do anything now but rather do a light maintenance coat late Fall or early Spring to just the horizontals.

    I used the 1500 Natural
    Deck is a year old, pressure treated, excellent to good condition, gets a lot of sun from 11am to 8pm (e.s.t) in the summer)I scrubbed it with a bleach and water solution, power washed it, waited a little more than 48 hours to dry
    I used a 3/8 nap roller, there are some areas that came out lighter than other areas, some little spots that actually look like a shine to them, but, the shine spots I can live with, what I am wondering is it possible to do a second light coat over the areas that are lighter, or is a second coat only to be done wet over wet and not wet over dry cause it might look even more uneven?
    As for the look of the product I thought Natural meant it was going to be,well clear,but,nope it has a light Cherry/Mahogany tone to it,not a complaint I think it is gorgeous the wood deck up against my white vinyl fencing
    I still have to do the lower level of the "deck" area suggestions welconed

    10 year old deck
    Cedar
    great condition
    previously stained with Wolmans semi-transparent.
    would like to find a product that I don't need to completely remove to re-stain.
    Have stripped and brightened deck and top of handrail last fall but spindles are still in good condition with previous stain. Considering keeping the stain on the spindles and just re-staining the rest. Suggestions?
    Live in Minnesota with full sun on deck

    Susan, after the sanding you should prep the wood with the Gemini Restore Kit then apply 1-2 coats of the TWP.

    Our 250-sq-ft cedar deck has been covered with Sikkens DEK, re-coated three times. We intend to power sand the upper surface off down to bare wood and start over. Any suggestions?

    Chris Gifford, you cannot use TWP on a composite deck. Yes you should remove all of the old stain first. Stripping should work. TWP can be recoated as long as you do the maintenance coat before the product goes to failure.

    I have 2 Customers looking for a protectant that can be renewed without having to completely strip each year. One has a composite deck made of iron wood. Is this product good for composite decks? Customer#2 has a fir deck that has been treated with water based stain, it is weathered and very dry but has a few patches of stain left. Should all the stain be removed completely. Should the fir have a light sanding before applying? Same question can will the deck accept a recoat without having to completely strip it first? Both homes are at high elevation with snow in the winter and one is in deep shade the other by a river.

    Jo, TWP is not compliant for Canada and cannot be used or sold there.

    I have a screened-in deck - built 13 years ago. Pressure treated wood (red type not the green).
    Deck surface has been restained with Behr product-some flaking with this product.
    Rest of deck never been restained - where protected by eaves, practically new looking - where in sun moderate to severe weathering.
    Cold canadian winters, hot summers
    What product should I use to prepare the deck surface? What stain should I use?

    Ryan, It is extremely diffcult to remove a newly applied acrylic stain. Best to ask Olympic for advice. For the old oil based Olympic, you can use the Restore A Deck Stain Stripper followed by the brightener. Read this about staining new decks:

    I built a new cedar deck that I stained with Olympic Maximum cedar naturaltone yesterday. I have used the oil based product for years and loved it but the new water base formula was awful! I hate the color and the way it went on. I want to remove it and stain it with a TWP product. Hiw do I remove this stain I just applied and what stain should I use? I also have a cedar deck about 8 years old that hasnt been stained in about 3 years and is pretty weathered. It was stained with the Olympic Maximum oil based. I am in Texas. Thanks!

    New deck, cedar. good condition, bare.
    Looking to treat entire deck.
    Question: is there any benefit from applying the deck stain to all sides of the deck boards before installation?

    Wade, you must remove the Behr 100% before using TWP. It cannot be applied on top of it. What state are you in?

    I have a 400 sq ft deck that is 10 years old. part is stained with solid bahr which is 70% gone with power washing and the rail is semi transperant behr that is very faided. the deck is treated lumber. It is on the west of the house and gets a lot of sun in the afternoon and evening. I used your stain on a job in Missouri for a family and loved it. I cant find a local distributor near here. Which of the two stains will work best in my application. Wood is in fair condition.
