    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.

    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.

    TWP is not compliant for Canada and cannot be shipped there or sold there. We cannot suggest that you break the law and bring it across the border.

    Location = Southern Ontario. Raised back deck, two levels, plus wooden Gazebo. Age 15? years, probably basic pressure-treated wood. Heavy mildew, and will be cleaning thoroughly. Some wear, three boards to be replaced. Never stained.
    Can you please recommend colour?
    Also, do you ship to Canada or must I have shipped to US address & bring over?
    Thanks!

    1. We are an online retailer.
    2. You cannot blend the 1500 with the 100. Stay with the 120 Pecan.

    I had used the TWP 100 stain on my deck in 2011 and have recently applied the rest of the can that was left over to part of my deck. I have looked all over Omaha and am unable to find a store that sells this product - Lowes said they might have discontinued it. With that said, I have 2 questions:
    1) Is there a store in Omaha that sells your product?

    2) Is there a difference in appearance between the 100 & 1500 series -- I have used the leftover can of the 100 series and was only able to get half the deck done. If I order the 1500 for the other half, will it look different if I order the same color (pecan)?

    Thanks,
    Christine

    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.

    I just ordered your 100 stain. The deck is one year old treated lumber with no stain. Can I was power wash with bleach water and if so how strong a concentrate.

    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!
