    i have a brand new deck with treated decking and post, but with cedar hand rails with black blausters. Would you recommend rustic or cedartone in order to match up the treated decking with the cedar rails? How long to i need to want before staining the new deck?

    Janice, Rustic is a red color with a hint of brown but definitely more on the red side. There is not a way to lighten the color.

    Hello,
    We are about 1/2 through with staining our new deck. We treated it prior to staining with your cleaner and brightener. We chose Rustic (second choice was Pecan) but it is way too red for my taste. It almost looks like the Redwood sample we painted. My husband says we just have to wait for it to fade in a few years and redo at that time. I currently hate it. Short of stripping the new finish, do you have any suggestions for toning down the red? To me it looks almost orange especially when the sun shines on it. Our deck is cedar.

    Chris, I would get 8-9 gallons for the 2 coats wet on wet. You should remove the Olympic first though with a stain stripper and wood brightener so the TWP can properly penetrate. Typically lasts about 2 years.

    Pat, clear offers no uv protection from graying. There must be a tint for that. Please read this about new decking:

    Sir/Ms; I am using Ponderosa Pine boards as decking for a roofed porch; north facing side of house. I want a clear finish so natural wood shows. Does TWP 100 do that? If so, how do I order it online and what is price for one gallon? Thx, pat

    Would the 1500 series stain colors be richer looking than 100 series for my deck in Minnesota?

    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.

    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.
