    I have a 40 year old redwood top railings with 8 month old cedar side railings on a no maintenance horizontal deck base. Should I use the TWP 100 series wet on wet process on the wood after a cleaning and brightening process?

    Hello - I have to sand my deck this spring as after cleaning some snow off it this winter there are some shovel marks. I have put cabot stain on it before and have not like it and am planning on using the 100 series. Some questions:
    1. After I sand it do I need to let the wood sit or can I put the cleaner and then brightener on it right away.
    2. When staining, can I put a first coat on and then in a week put a second coat on? Can I put another coat on it in the fall before winter hits.

    I live in Minneapolis MN.

    TWP 100 and 1500 is not legal for Canada.

    I have a new cedar deck and fence - about 1 month old. Can I apply TWP 100 Transparent stain now? Do you ship to Toronto, Canada and if yes, are there duties. What would the shipping costs be for approx. 5 gallons? If you don't ship to Canada, can I buy this product in Canada?
    Thank you

    melanie, the TWP 100 Series would be the correct choice for this. For the prep, you need to make sure that all of the old stain has been removed. In addition you should clean and brighten the wood to remove graying and dirt.

    Ken, probably mineral deposits from the water. I should wipe off if lying on top of the stain.

    I have a log house in Telluride, CO, approx. 10,000 ft above sea level. All lodge pole pine (logs and decks) 27 years old. Wood in good condition. Have been 5 years (more?) since it was last stained, using Sikkens (suggested by company doing the work) appears that there is basically no stain left. Extreme weather conditions ~ below zero in winter, snow. Main deck is south facing, harsh sun all year round, very dry climate, mold not an issue.
    Would TWP 100 be an ideal product for this use (logs and decks), what treatment is suggested prior to using?
    Thanks!

    One year old redwood deck. had been treated with Thompsons. I powerwashed twice, cleaned and used brightener before rinsing again. Let dry for several days and then put two coats of TWP 100 on. It looks blotchy in spots and has grey water spots in areas as well after it rains or pool water gets on it. Advice?

    You cannot add TWP or any other brand of stain on top of the Olympic. It will not work.

    My deck is pressure treated pine and is 8 yrs with an add-on. Sanded and stained last year with Olympic but water is still soaking into boards. It's a big deck so I REALLY don't want to strip or re-sand, and I'm happy with the color, just need a water-repellant that I can add as an annual or bi-annual maintenance. Thought about Thompsons until I read your reviews, hope you can help. THX.

    TWP 100 is not compliant for CA. New wood needs to sit. Please read this:
    http://www.twpstainhelp.com/prepping-new-wood-for-twp-stains/

    No need to do the underside.

    New / untreated redwood deck. We are in La Honda, CA: moderate temps, 75" rain / year, occasional frost. Deck is in direct sun / part shade.

    I read that new wood should be left out for some time before sealing, but I want to retain the color of the new redwood, What should I do?

    Should I seal the underside before installat6ion while it's accessible. (again my concern is the instruction to let the wood sit for some time before sealing.)

    Also would you recommend 100 or 1500?

    thx,
    L2

    You do not need a cleaner if you use the stripper. You still might need to lightly sand after the stripping and brightening.

    Thanks for the advice on just using a deck stripper on my cedar deck. Another question, after using the cleaner the first time I now also have white fuzzies on the top of the deck. I believe that is from using the power washer. Can I still just use a cleaner and then the brightener or because of the fuzzies will I need to sand. I love the idea of not sanded and just using the stripper - I just want to not do this every year so want to get it right this time.

    opwdecks:
    I would not sand but use the Restore A Deck Stripper then the Brightener to prep. Once done you can lightly sand with 60 grit if needed. I would suggest the 100 Series.

    You cannot stain brand new wood with TWP. It needs to weather 4+ months then cleaned first.

    I'll be buying 13 1x6x10 pressure treated wood from Lowes. So not sure how old it will be. It will not have been stained. This wood is for a motorcycle/utility trailer I'm restoring. The trailer will be exposed to the outdoor elements, and times with a motorcycle sitting on it. Thank you for your advice.

    I have an 8yr old cedar deck. Sanded it two yes ago and put on Cabot Australian timber oil. The strain has peeled. Last weekend put on a deck cleaner. And finished right before it rained. Deck looks awful so am planning on sanding. What are the next steps. Do I have to use a cleaner and brightener again? What stain will hold up in a mn winter. Also what's a good time frame. It looks like rain here for the next week. Can I sand then wait to apply deck brightener.
