    Lyn, prep first with the Gemini Restore Kit then reapply the TWP 100 Series.

    This cedar fence is 15 years old, originally stained with an unknown brand of an oil based stain in a deep cedar/brown color. The wood is deeply stained in most areas, and powerwashing does not remove the deep color.The wood is in very good condition, not rotting or splitting despite being in Michigan. The color has faded, in some areas a lot, in others not so much. I would like to preserve it, even out the color, and allow natural grain to be visible. I do not want it to appear painted, nor do I want in future years to look at what would appear to be faded or peeling paint. I suspect that an oil based stain is the best choice, and would like some guidance as to which product you would recommend. And, can I buy it anywhere within 100 miles of Three Rivers, Michigan?? Thank you!

    My deck is probably 15-20 years old. As such I believe it is the old CCA treated pine. When I stained the deck,about 4 years ago, I wasn't sure if the prior owner used oil or latex so I went with Behr latex deck stain (I know, don't say it). The spindles did not fair to bad, the decking however is pretty much bare and dry. I am very impressed by the reviews of your products and would like to know if I can use them and if so what process I should follow (i.e. stripping and/or brightening). I live in Cleveland Ohio where we get snow as well as some hot and sunny days (often in the same day). Please let me know which of your stains would be best and the proper procedures to get the most out of them. Thank you in advance for your assistance.

    Dan, if the old stain is still on the wood then you should use a stripper followed by a brightener. The TWP 100 is good for TX. It can be sprayed.

    I have a ranch style house in the Dallas, TX area with rough-cut cedar trim (eaves, soffits, window frames, covered patio) and a cedar board-over-board fence. Both are 7 years old. They were spray coated with Olympic transparent sealer (from Lowe's) 8-10 months after installation. A small area of the trim has mold, but most appears pretty much the same as when new. I have some graying on the fence and some discoloration where sprinklers have hit the fence. I do not have any flaking of the original sealer.

    Should I use cleaner or stripper prior to re-sealing.

    Can/should I use TWP 100. Can I apply to rough cut wood with garden sprayer?

    Bob, you cannot put the TWP on top of the Maxum. You would need to strip.

    I applied Maaxum 7600 Series Deck Stain last spring (2 coats). It has not held up well as some boards have little if any color.
    Question: I Plan to use Restor-A-Deck cleaner and brightener. Will I need to strip the remaing Maaxum stain prior to applying TWP 100 stain?

    5year old cedar deck with pergola . The deck and pergola are stripped cleaned and blighted with restore a deck products. The TWP 101 cedar tone we bought says not to apply in direct sunlight how important is this? It also says a second coat could or should be applied to the deck but thinned out depending on how the first coat absorbed. I'm not sure how to determine this. And last what is the BEST way to apply this product brush,pad,rag? I have spent the last week getting this thing ready to go and I'm hoping for a winner in this product. Any help or tips you could provide would be greatly appreciated.
    Deck is in southern WI

    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!

    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
    * 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?
