    Pressure-treated pine; Sherwin-Williams Deckscapes semi-transparent oil-based stain is 3-4 years old. Approx. 1200 sq. ft total area.
    Do I need to strip it, or just pressure-wash first?
    Do I need TWP 100 or TWP 1500?
    Can I buy it locally (Woodlands, TX. 77381)

    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:

    My contractor recommended TWP 100 series for our deck which he is sanding and then staining. We wanted to have the closest look to the wood itself for which he recommended the honey color.

    My question is whether that would also be the best finish for some handmade redwood furniture I am looking at buying. I love the look of the redwood when it is freshly planed and sanded, and would like to keep as close to that look as possible while protecting the wood from moisture, sun, etc that causes it to gray.

    Is the TWP100 Honey the best product for my redwood furniture or is there a better product?

    All TWP colors will enhance the wood grain. The Honeytone is the lightest tint and is similar to a rich "wet look". You must have color in your stain if you want to prevent UV graying.

    We stained our deck yesterday and the floor boards are lighter than the railings and spindles when we looked at it this morning. There are also a few darker spots from us not being careful with the stain and getting it on a board before the entire board was stained. Can we apply a 2nd coat to help remedy both of these issues? if so when can a 2nd coat be applied. The instructions only call for a wet on wet 2nd coat.

    Applying another coat now could result in over application to the point where it cannot absorb into the wood and dries shiny.

    Can this product be used on a deck that currently has a solid stain - 22 years old?

    No, the solid would have to be removed fully first.

    For a log home do you recommend 2 coats on all vertical and horizontal surfaces? does 100 last longer or hold up longer than 1500? The home was done with 100 several years ago

    Yes you should apply two coats wet on wet. Either the 100 or 1500 will last about the same.
