    Brett, you can use the TWP 100 for your area and that would be your best option.

    Sorry. I live in Spokane, WA. It's on the east side of the state, so not as wet. I get all four seasons, dry summers, snowy winter, some rain in spring and fall. Thanks!

    Chuck, the TWP 101 Cedartone would be a great choice for this.

    Wood is redwood, age four years. Stained previously with Olympic semi-transparent alkyloid oil-based stain. Condition of wood is good, but poor coverage by previous stain. In sun for most the day, but also subject to rain and snow. Which TWP product would be best? Am able to purchase the TWP 100 in my state.

    The pressure treated pine is about 12yrs old. I've pressure washed it a few times but as of yet have not sealed it. The deck is in pretty good shape, however some hand rails will either have to be replaced or sanded. The deck is in located in north Georgia (Atlanta) area. The deck is attached to back side of the house and gets midday sun and then shade in the afternoon. I was looking at the 100 Series in Cedartone, but what is your suggestion. Thank you.

    You would need to remove the SW with the Restore-A-Deck Stripper followed by the Brightener.

    Once removed we would suggest the 1500 series.

    * 16 year old deck
    cedar
    * replaced four boards that had rotted around nails
    * Stained every other year for with Sherman Williams Deckscape oil based semi transparent toner in cedar
    * large raised deck that faces south west

    Please recommend what would be the best approach to revitalizing this deck.
    Will I need to remove all the stain or can I just use a deck cleaner and pressure washer and then restain with TWP 100 or 1500?
    Or what do you suggest?

    Fabian, you would need to strip and brighten the deck for prep. The TWP 1500 would be better for this deck.

    The wood is over 7years old, Pressure treated lumber. Good condition of wood. It was stained 2 times with Cabbot Semi-transparent stain Cedar tone.
    Full sun most of the day from morning until 5PM. My current stain looked burned/black after 2 years on the deck flooring. What is the best to go with for about 275sq ft of coverage? 1500 or 100 series TWP.
    thank you

    You cannot put TWP on top of the Cabot semi-solid. You would need to strip first.

    20 year old Red Wood deck, Good condition. Stained 2 years ago with Cabots semi solid stain. 80% stain still on but time to do again. DO NOT want to strip it to bare wood Thinking of using the TWP 100 as sounds better. Will it work OK? Suggestions?
    Thanks, Dennis

    Either would work well and both are compatible. The 1500 has a higher amount of solids.

    Any recommendation on between the 100 or 1500. Any problems using the 1500 later to restain after using the 100 initially? Is there a difference between the two?

    The lightest tint in either series is the Honeytone. Clears will not give UV protection from graying. I would personally use the 1515 Honeytone after proper cleaning.

    I have a one year old treated pine deck about 450 square feet in north alabama. It has faded to a nice color and is in good condition. I have waited a year to look into staining and need help deciding on a color and brand of stain. I want as close to natural as I can find. any suggestions??

    Brenda, you cannot put TWP on top of a failing stain and expect it to perform correctly. You must remove the old stain first.

    Colin, 2 Gallons for 1 coat. 3 gallons of doing the 2 coats wet on wet. Rough fence wood is more absorbent and the stain does not spread as far.
