    The 100 is a 550 VOC stain and has less solid content while the 1500 is a low VOC stain of 250 with a higher solid content. The 1500 may give a little better UV protection. The 1516 Rustic is slightly darker then the 116 Rustic.

    I used 100 rustic stain on my pine wood siding a year ago, what is the difference in the 100 and 1500. Which one is better and will the 1500 rustic match the 100 rustic in color.

    Kent, many things are being done wrong. TWP is not to be applied to new wood for 4+ months after install. Wood should then be cleaned and brightened to prep. Sanding is not the proper way to prep as it reduces the stain's ability to penetrate. One good thing for you is that this is a ceiling. If it was a floor, the stain would fail quickly due to improper prep. Since it is a ceiling, it will probably be okay.

    As for your questions, adding a second coat will not help the stain last longer and could cause more issues. Never apply a top coat stain on top of TWP. It will not work.

    Hope this helps!

    Nicki, to ensure an even application you must remove remnants of all old stain first. Depending on who bad the old stain is, this should be done by either stripping off the stain or sanding it off. Once that is removed then cleaning and brightening with the Gemini Restore Kit will help even out the appearance of the new and old wood.

    For Ohio you would need the TWP 1500 as the 100 Series is not compliant.

    Hello :)

    1: New part of deck is 1.5 years, unsure how old other part is but the woods in good shape.

    2. Pressure treated Pine

    3. New part is great condition, older part also in good condition

    4. New portion has never been sealed or stained, old portion has been well maintained with a sherwin Williams stain but it's now a flaking peeling mess

    5. The total deck is approx 1000 sq feet. We also have a pool and I'm nervous about colors matching the old and the new decking. Thank so much for your help. Also which line of your stain would be best? I live in Ohio and like I said the deck is exposed to lots of water from the pool and natural weather elements.

    4 months should be okay to stain. Makes sure to clean and brighten the wood with the Gemini Restore Kit. Only 1 coat the first time you stain with the TWP 100. You can always add another coat in 12-24 months. For 800 Sq. feet, one 5 gallon pail of stain should be enough.

    Did you get rid of all the dark patches? If not then that is probably old Penofin that has darkened. You should strip the rest of then brighten the wood to get it more even. You cannot "cover" discoloration with a semi-transparent stain like TWP. You could "blend" maybe with the Dark Oak.

    Was the wood new? New wood should weather for 4-12 months, then cleaned and brightened to prep.

    Stains will also prematurely fail due to lack of penetration into the wood. Sanding the wood probably caused this as it makes it difficult for the stain to absorb deeply. Using the cleaner and brightener would help alleviate this but cannot fix if over sanded.

    Yes you can lightly clean and then apply a light coat of TWP 1500. Colors vary though between the series so make sure you get a matching color.

    I stained my cedar deck with TWP 101 stain this past September. After about 5 months the color on the deck boards has faded significantly. Before i stained the deck with TWP 101 i sanded the entire deck, cleaned it with wood cleaner and brightener. I cleaned with cleaner and brightener twice and waited 3 days before staining. Any suggestions on why this has faded premature? can i do maintenance coat with TWP1500 over the top of TWP 100 with out stripping it?

    New wood should weather for 4-12 months before the TWP is applied. I would wait, then clean and brighten the wood with the Gemini Restore Kit before applying the TWP

    I have a deck with western red cedar (new) that has been oiled with boiled linseed oil. Can TWP be applied over the BLO, or should it be cleaned first?

    Prep with the Gemini Restore A Deck Kit then stain with either the 100 or 1500 Series. For this size deck you would need roughly 10-15 gallons of stain.

    I would use the TWP 100 Series. The new wood should weather for a few months first though as it will not take the stain very well. After that you should use the Gemini Restore Kit to clean and brighten all the wood before applying the stain.

    I am looking for a stain that will last. I have a 10 year old deck with treated pine. Fairly large (850 sq. ft), with about 150' or railing. In frustration, I have just let it weather (did apply clear Cedarcide to it to protect it a few years ago). Doesn't look good at all. Very little stain color remains (except some light coloring on the railing). What do I need to do? How much do I need?

    New wood should weather for 4-12 months then prepped with the [url=http://www.twpstain.com/gemini-s-restore-a-deck-cleaner-and-brightener-kit]Gemini Restore-A-Deck Kit[/url] first before applying the stain. Only 1 coat on new wood.

    Future coats require the use of the kit to prep first before reapplying.
