    Doug, install the wood then let it sit for a few months unless the wood is "rough". Make sure to lightly clean and brighten the wood for the prep before applying the 100 series. Most vertical siding will last 3-6 years depending on the color you choose and the UV exposure.

    You could wipe off the shiny areas with some rags and lacquer thinner. Be careful of the rags and do not leave them in sunlight or the house. Saturate them with water when done so they do not spontaneously combust.

    One year old treated pine just cleaned three weeks ago. Deck is 40 feet by 36 feet with a twenty five foot hole (pool) in the middle. Enclosed with 42 inch high rails and balusters four inches apart all the way around. Central South Carolina with hot summers and mild winters. Receives total sun majority of the day.

    How much stain will I need and what do you recommend? I prefer to spray it on if possible. Thanks!

    I have a new pressure treated deck, which dried out for about 6 month before I put TWP 100 on it yesterday. As instructed I put two coats on the deck, about 30 minutes apart. What I know see is that there some shiny area where ther was too much stain applied. Can anything be done to take off the excess or will time and the weather do it for me?

    Also what is the shelf life of the 1 1/2-2 gallons I have left form the 5 gallon can?
    Thank you.

    TWP 1500 would be best for this home in San Diego. It is a semi-transparent oil based stain.

    Maria, you can buy from our website. TWP 100 is not compliant for Ohio. You would need the 1500. Strip and brighten the old stain for the prep.

    We live about 1 mile from the ocean in San Diego. We are restoring the cedar siding on a home built in 1968. The siding is between new to 30 yrs old. We used a Cabot stripper and brightener. Needless to say, the wood is not very uniform in appearance, but we got all of the old stain off of the wood. What stain would you recommend? We do not want to use solid, but semi-transparent and semi-solid would be ok with us. Oil base or latex base is better?

    We live in central Ohio & finished trimming out a 3-season room & covered porch. (1) Do you sell to general public or do I need to use a contractor to order? (2) Pretty sure I need TWP 100. There is nothing on new rough cedar yet, and some cedar colored stain residue on previous cedar, maybe 2-3 yrs old & brand unknown.

    Hello, How long do I have to wait to stain a new western cedar deck?

    Tamara, if you have old stain then you should use a stain stripper with the pressure washing so the wood will even out in coverage when done. After prepping I would look at the TWP 103 Dark Oak for this older deck.

    Frederick, if switching to TWP then you need to remove the old Behr with a stain stripper. Please read this:

    For Ohio you need the 1500 Series.

    Lyn, prep first with the Gemini Restore Kit then reapply the TWP 100 Series.

    This cedar fence is 15 years old, originally stained with an unknown brand of an oil based stain in a deep cedar/brown color. The wood is deeply stained in most areas, and powerwashing does not remove the deep color.The wood is in very good condition, not rotting or splitting despite being in Michigan. The color has faded, in some areas a lot, in others not so much. I would like to preserve it, even out the color, and allow natural grain to be visible. I do not want it to appear painted, nor do I want in future years to look at what would appear to be faded or peeling paint. I suspect that an oil based stain is the best choice, and would like some guidance as to which product you would recommend. And, can I buy it anywhere within 100 miles of Three Rivers, Michigan?? Thank you!

    My deck is probably 15-20 years old. As such I believe it is the old CCA treated pine. When I stained the deck,about 4 years ago, I wasn't sure if the prior owner used oil or latex so I went with Behr latex deck stain (I know, don't say it). The spindles did not fair to bad, the decking however is pretty much bare and dry. I am very impressed by the reviews of your products and would like to know if I can use them and if so what process I should follow (i.e. stripping and/or brightening). I live in Cleveland Ohio where we get snow as well as some hot and sunny days (often in the same day). Please let me know which of your stains would be best and the proper procedures to get the most out of them. Thank you in advance for your assistance.

    Dan, if the old stain is still on the wood then you should use a stripper followed by a brightener. The TWP 100 is good for TX. It can be sprayed.

    I have a ranch style house in the Dallas, TX area with rough-cut cedar trim (eaves, soffits, window frames, covered patio) and a cedar board-over-board fence. Both are 7 years old. They were spray coated with Olympic transparent sealer (from Lowe's) 8-10 months after installation. A small area of the trim has mold, but most appears pretty much the same as when new. I have some graying on the fence and some discoloration where sprinklers have hit the fence. I do not have any flaking of the original sealer.

    Should I use cleaner or stripper prior to re-sealing.


    Can/should I use TWP 100. Can I apply to rough cut wood with garden sprayer?
