    Hi;
    2 years ago I stripped the Cabots off my 2 x 4 cedar deck (not new wood, but some new planks) and applied 1 coat of TWP-100 cedar. It help up pretty well, and now it's time to re-coat. The idea was not to have to strip it again. So this time I will replace about 25 boards, so will have some new wood again.

    1/ After using the 2 part cleaner, stabilizer you offer, I would like to go to a darker shade, pecan etc. Can I go to TWP 1500 w/o stripping, or if I find a shade I prefer, or do I have to stick to TWP-100?

    Bes to stay within the 100 Series. Try the 120 Pecan. It is more of a brownish cedartone.

    We have a 5 year old redwood deck in northern Arizona that we used Behr Premium Transparent Weather Proofing. The horizontal surfaces failed miserably.

    Please advise the best product and prep procedure.

    Thanks,

    Noel

    Use the TWP 100 or the TWP 1500 for this. Prep to remove the Behr with the Restore a Deck Stripper Kit.

    We have just installed a Batu deck.
    What TWP product would you suggest we use to seal this hardwood with?

    TWP is not designed for hardwood decking.

    Denise Wilton:
    When it's time to redo the deck what kind of prep is involved? Can you go over the existing TWP stain with another coat of TWP or do you need to strip and brighten with products like Restore a Deck?
    Thanks

    Clean and brighten will be needed with a Gemini Restore Kit.

    We used Behr semi transparent premium... 4 years ago on a 5 year old deck. followed all directions- it failed the day after we applied. Now we stripped, and cleaned with behr 63 wood brightener- nuetralizer and sanded deck. Can we use TWP 100 on it, or do we have to clean it with something else first??

    As long as the Behr is fully removed, you can use the TWP.

    Hi, I'm interested in using TWP100 for my dock. After putting 2 coats of your sample onto the cedar, I noticed it was shiny. The stain also stayed tacky for about 3 days which I didn't expect. I put the 2nd coat on about an hour after the first coat while it was still wet. The piece is now dry but there is a definite gloss. I want to make sure this won't be slippery while walking on it since the dock is used to get to and from the water and people will have wet feet. My sample is too small to test for this.

    Thanks

    TWP is not supposed to be shiny. If it dried shiny, then it was over applied or not prepped correctly. Was this new wood?

    A pressure treated pine dock installed in November 2015. No previous stain. Full afternoon and evening sun.
    What special information do I need to know for prepping and staining the dock, which is over water?

    Prep with the Gemini Restore Kit and stain with the TWP 100 or 1500 Series, depending on your state laws. Take precautions to not get the stain in the water.

    1. 3 years
    2. pressure treated pine
    3. Slightly grayed
    4. Yes Behr premium
    5. deck has been stripped cleaned and brightened
    6. 36 x 16
    Question - what is the coverage and quantity needed ? TWP 100 or TWP 1500

    Which series to use depends on your state. If your states allowed the 100, then use it. If not, the TWP 1500 is the way to go. See our calculator for amount needed:
