    The 100 Series works great on vertical cabin walls.

    1) 10 year old bevel sided cabin
    2) Rough Pine
    3) Wood condition is good after I power washed and used a siding/deck cleaner.
    4) Stained when built with Behr Transparent Stain - nothing done to it since first staining.
    5) 1 1/2 story cabin 1027 sq. ft.

    1. Yes
    2. Yes you need to clean and brighten
    3. Not on newer wood.
    4. That amount sounds correct.

    1. 6 months (over winter).
    2. western red cedar rough sawn siding
    3. looks very fresh
    4. No previous treatment
    5. Bevel with some board and batten siding on a small house on east slope of Cascades in Washington State. Winter snow and cloudy. Somewhat dry, sunny summer climate.

    Is TWP 100 best choice?

    Both 101 and 115 test samples look very good, applied on raw wood with no cleaning or brightening. Is cleaning and brightening necessary?

    Wood is thirsty. I assume that coverage will be in low end of range.

    Total outside wall area (excluding windows) is about 1100 sq. ft. Should I get 2 5 gal. containers?

    You should use the Gemini Restore Kit to prep with the pressure washing.

    Jeff, I would just do the 1 coat now and then a light maintenance coat in a year or so. Coverage is about 150 sq. feet per gallon. Please read this about new wood:

    My deck had hail damage, so I replaced all the horizontal boards with Kiln-Dried After Treated Yellow Pine. The rest of the rails and boards are a mix of new "green" but dried for 5 months and wood that had a solid stain that I sanded off (about 12 years old). I plan on using the restore kit (cleaner) before staining. How many coats should I apply? One or wet on wet? What coverage should I expect? I have just over 1000 sqft of wood surface...144 sqft is on a new lumber privacy fence. Thank you for your help!

    Luis, remove the Cabot ATO with the Restore Stain Stripper then use the brightener. Once the wood is dry, you could use either the 100 or 1500. Probably need about 10 gallons for the wet on wet application.

    ScottB, you must have color in your stain if you want to prevent UV graying. If you do not care that it grays and just want to protect from other elements, then use the TWP Clear in the 100 or 1500.

    Purchased a home with a new pressure treated wood deck installed Aug 2012. Since this is nice lumber am not as keen on a stain color change but moreso on preserving and protecting the wood. What is your recommendation plase?

    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.

    Gene, what is the total sq. footage of the wood?

    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.
