    I live in Northern Arkansas, will be a 1st time user of TWF on a deck a contractor installed wrapped around 2 sections of the home, and has been sitting for the second year. I know i need a light power washing. I like the Cedartone Natural, does the oil base give a better shine and last longer than water base ?

      TWP does not have a shine as they are penetrating stains. We only sell oil-based.

    I used 101 cedar on my new cedar deck 10 months ago. I want to put another coat on before the winter. Do I need to do anything more than a good power wash before I recoat with the same stain? The deck has held its color pretty well, but no longer beads up in rain.

      Whenever you recoat you will need to use the Gemini Restore Kit.

        I used the kit last weekend, and the deck is ready to stain. I'm hoping to stain this weekend. We've had no rain for several days. However, we are having very heavy morning dew, and the deck is not dry until mid-afternoon. Do I need to wait until the dew lightens? we are getting temperature extremes here from night to day -- high 50's at night and then mid 80's during the day.

          You can stain in afternoon after dew dries off.

    I just completed staining my 33-year-old pressure-treated 2x4 pine decking. I live in SE MN. First stripped the deck using Restore-A-Deck with both additives, since the deck had one coat of Sherwin Williams Deckscapes Semi-Transparent Stain 17 years ago. Used TWP Series 100 101 Cedartone. See the before and after pictures. Just loved the stain color and how the deck turned out. A lot of work, especially for a guy who's 80.

    This is my front porch. Can I apply one layer of TWP 101 Cedartone over existing stain or I have to remove old stain before staining TWP 101 Cedartone? It does not matter what color the porch will be after the work is done, but I do not know whether TWP 101 Cedartone can stick well on existing stain? Thanks!

      You have to remove the current stain first.

    ⚠️ Lengthy post warning!!

    I live in Oregon. In 2018 I re-stained my deck. Previous owners had applied several layers of solid stain or possibly paint on the deck flooring that I sanded off. I then used Restore-a-deck cleaner and brightener before staining. I used Ready-Seal brand semi-transparent stain in a pecan color. I’m getting ready to restain this year but have some questions. I’d like to use the TWP 100 pro series deck stain. (1) Do I need to strip or sand my deck before applying a different brand of stain? (2) Would this stain hold up in a heavy rain climate like Oregon? I have pets that love sun bathing on the bare deck, (3) will the oils rub off onto my pets? The Ready Seal stain I used last left behind a oil residue that rubbed off on my dogs coats and our clothes. It held a strong odor of chemical and oil for months after. It also made the deck slippery when wet. (4) Is this all normal stuff? (5) How do I prevent the deck from becoming slippery in the damper seasons? It was my first time refinishing a deck, so perhaps I made some rookie mistakes that I’d like to not repeat this time around. I don’t want to cover up the wood grain or drown it out with a dark stain. I’m looking to accentuate it’s beauty with adding a splash of color for protection, so I was thinking of going with the TWP 101 cedartone or honeytone stain. The railing posts were stained but never the railings themselves. The railings have never been stained, sanded, cleaned, brightened, etc. My husband was going to change the railings but never got around to doing so. The railings were just added back on this year after being stored under the house. They were taken off prior to sanding and staining the deck last.

    Much thanks,
    Kat

    Our deck gets the direct setting sun. Our restoration company indicated that they apply two coats "wet on wet" to the horizontal boards - but my husband feels like the deck faded after only one year. He would prefer to have the deck restored every 3 years if possible. When he asked them to apply a second coat - after the first application dries, the company said that wasn't necessary. What is your opinion and recommendation??

      More is not better. Only apply as much stain as the wood allows to fully soak in.

    Hi! my painter recommended the 100 series stain for our soffit and cover over our outside covered deck. We are installing a high grade clear cedar 1 x 4 T & G material so want to be sure to do the correct color the first time around. We are going to coat the lumber in a dry location prior to installation. I do not want to obscure the natural grain of the wood with a stain that will detract from the cedar. My question is should I be using a stain or a clear protectant? of all of the colors which will look the most natural without giving it a sheen or artificial look? I understand the goal sometimes of trying to make wood look better than it might be but we are starting with very expensive cedar and I don't want to sacrifice that. Thank you

      You cannot prestain unless the wood is rough sawn: https://www.twpstainhelp.com/prepping-new-wood-for-twp-stains/

      You must have a stain if you want to prevent UV graying. Clear will gray naturally in months.

        Question regarding pre stain. We want to stain while on the flat as opposed to having to stain overhead in an open area. This is mild dried v joint cedar and would be a lot easier to do on the ground

          TWP Stains · 11/04/2020
          Only can be done if the wood is rough sawn otherwise you need to weather and prep as explained in the article link we sent.

    I've been told that new wood (pressure treated pine) may only need one coat of the TWP series stains? Is this true? My new wood deck (5 months old) is ready and am unsure what to do? One coat vs 2?

    Hello - I have a 8 month old boat dock and walk way that totals ~1,200 sq ft and made of marine grade lumber. Half of it the dock gets constant sun and the other half is covered. Our goal (like most others) is to maintain the look of the wood finish as long as possible. After reviewing the products we believe the TWP 101 Cedartone will meet our needs and is the color we would like. While the calculator takes into consideration things we don't have (hand rails, etc.) it stated we need 12 gals along with 2 kits of the cleaner / brightner. Would you be kind enough to confirm our assumptions, the amount of product we need and if there is anything we might of mist your guidance is greatly appreciated. Take care . . .

      Only one coat for new wood so you would need about 7-8 gallons and 2 of the prep kits.

    I wonder how log does TWP 100 series can stay in can after I opened it. I plan to purchase 5 gallons, and there will be left over. I plan to use leftover in following years. Also, can I apply it after a year or so when it starts losing its effect without stripping the old one.

    I have all rough sawn cedar porches. The wood has cured for several months now. I have areas that are greying due to direct sun exposure. I would like to restore the grey areas back to their natural finish then coat all the cedar with a low lustre product. I didn't want to alter the natural color but everything I read says that a clear coat will not protect as well from greying. Your cedartone 101 looks really yellow/orange in a lot of the reviews. I prefer the red and browns that are in my wood right now. I do like how the grain and knots appear darker after they are wet from rain. What's my best option to maintain the current color without having to recoat every year. I have lots of exposed wood. I've tried a semitransparent on a scrap piece and my wood is so rough that it was blotchy because of the fir on my cedar. Please advise! Thank you!

      I used the Cedartone 101 and if you like the darker wet look of knots in the wood knots really stand out after staining. I suppose there’s a difference in the way the stain is absorbed in the knots.

      Honeytone 115 is the closest color to a "wet" look. Look at that.

            Thank you. I ordered a couple of samples. I'm now wondering if after doing more research if the 1500 series is better for my situation? What's the major difference in the 100 and 1500?

              TWP Stains · 05/08/2020
              1500 is not better. The difference is VOC laws based on your state. They both work about the same for what you have.

    I recently purchased a 5G drum of TWP CDRTONE 101. It appears I may not quite have enough to finish my project. Another gallon will likely suffice. Is this available in a 1G size?. If available please send info as to availability in my area or price and shipping options. Thanks so much. I live in the 63366 zip code
