    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.

    I am restaining a deck around a pool. It is pressure treated wood and we used a 3 year stain from Lowe's 2 years ago. The stain did not stand up well to our hot summers. Can we use the 100 or 1500 series over the old stain and sealer?

    Small fence at both ends between adjoining home. Roughly 10' X 5 (X2) or 200 sq. ft (if both sides sq. footage counted separately). Fence is 3 months old, mostly cedar with pressure treated 4x4 posts. Not stained previously. I suspect 1 gal will do it or would you recommend 2 gallons?

    Howard, Prep with the Gemini Restore Kit first. Without knowing the exact sq. footage it is hard to give an accurate amount. I would think you would need about 5-7 gallons for the 1 coat on the new wood.

    Any color will work. That is up to your preference.

    Rosie, the Honeytone is a golden color. That may work. Have you read this about staining new decks:

    What is a good NATURAL color to stain for the first time on pressure treated wood. We did another deck on another area of our property and it was too orange.(with another product)
    What color do you recommend that is NOT orange, gray or too dark in the 100 series line? ...just natural looking.
    Thanx.
