    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.

    You can use TWP again. I would use the Gemini Restore Kit to prep after the sanding. This will remove sand dust and allow the stain to penetrate better.

    I'v already sanded 10 yr old cedar deck with 80 grit paper. Previously used twp. Can I now use twp again? Should I wait. Is there any other prep necessary?

    Diane, new wood needs to weather and then prepped properly. Please read this article:

    I would go with the 100 Series

    Russel, the stripper and brightener will prep well but it may not remove all the oil and grease completely as that has penetrated deep into the wood.

    Thanks for the quick response. I just want to make sure you know that the reason I am wanting to stain the wood is because it very dirty looking. I have black spots (from BBQ pit, etc) all over the wood. I sprayed some spray and forget stuff and it was useless. I tested a spot with outdoor bleach and the black stuff came up after some serious scrubbing. So do you still say just use brightener after the sealer remover stuff?

    You would want to remove the TWP with a stain stripper before applying a paint.

    Russell, to prep you would want a stripper and a brightener. You do not need the cleaner. No need nor can you put a sealer on top of TWP.

    Five years ago we had our house stained by a professional painting company that used TWP 100. It needs to be done again and we are now thinking about painting over the TWP. What type of prep will need to be done?

    I have a treated pine deck, 2 years old. Used thompsons water seal twice, last year the latest time. Now I want to stain it. Was planning on using a stripper to make sure sealer is 100% gone, then a cleaner and then I was going to apply twp 100. After that, should I apply a wate sealer on top or does this act as the sealer just as good? Thanks! Also please let me know if what I am doing is right.

    Jim, Make sure to clean and remove any of the old Cabot as much as possible before applying the TWP. I am not familiar with that Cabot color. I would thing that either the Rustic or Redwood would be the closest.

    i need to improve a 2 year old pressure treatee wood deck - needs recoating - owner used cabot oil based stain in new redwood color 18 months ago - getting some mold. would twp 100 be a good choice after a pressure wash - if so what color thinking rustic would be best match.

    Mike, I would get 10 gallons of the stain for this. We do not have double packs and you are a little over for one back to be enough. Stain pads are best but you will still get drips. Make sure to trap below if possible.

    I live in South TX in a salt water environment. I have a combination of an unprotected dock of approx 350 sq. ft. & a partially protected porch/stairs area totalling 700 sq. ft. The wood is treated pine and 20 years old. The dock has some checking & spliting but is still OK. I have only previously used Thompsons type sealers & have not treated it in 6-7 years. I plan to use cleaner and brightner and a power washer. I like the reviews of TWP 100 and the Restore-a-Deck products.

    1. How much TWP 100 should I order?
    2. Do you offer the Restore-a-Deck double packs or will one suffice?
    3. With the dock over water and the 2nd story deck over a concrete patio I am looking to minimise drip through. what would be the best application method?
