    I have a gazebo that has been treated with Superdeck Duckback semi transparent, or transparent stain.  The stain is in really bad shape on the outside, but looks beautiful on the inside.  What do I need to do to prepare for TWP 100 (102)?  Is sanding enough?
    I am also adding a section of new cedar.  One side is rough, the other is smooth.  How will I go about staining this, as new smooth is to be treated differently than new rough?

    On treated pine, what would the color redwood look like? Would it be too red?

      No way to say for certain as color varies based on the wood type, age, and application. Plus, we do not what you consider "too red" to be as everyone's opinion is different. Best to test samples:

    Run short and had to only put 1 coat on the deck. 18 month old pine, cleaned and brightened according to the recommendations. Should I be able to put another coat on in spring? So far I'm loving twp. I used 3 gallons of twp 102.

      Looks great! Would not bother with another coat for 1-2 years.

    Here's a few pictures showing how 2 coats of the TWG-100 Redwood stain looks on redwood benches on my deck. I prepped the wood by heavily sanding using a belt sander with 40 grit then 80 grit sandpaper. There is one pic after sanding and then the same area after staining. The other 2 pics show an area before sanding and then after sanding and staining. One thing to add is that I originally coated the redwood 5 years ago with spar urethane - that did not work at all because it allowed the redwood color to quickly fade and the spar urethane coating peeled allowing moisture intrusion.

    I have stripped my 7 year old deck with Defy stripper and a pressure washer and put down Defy brightener. I am waiting for it to dry before applying the TWP 100 series that I bought for the first time. Unfortunately, I pitted quite a bit of the wood with the pressure washer and possibly a wire brush that I used. I have read that it is easy to redo TWP stain every one or two years, and I have looked forward to doing that, but I wonder if it will be difficult to remove the stain from the pitted wood. If so, should I sand the deck before refinishing, should I do that when I'm ready to redo the stain, or should I just leave it like that? Also, can sanding be done with a large floor sander to speed the process, since working on my knees with an orbital sander takes forever and is really hard on my 73 year old back?

    We are installing a new western red cedar fence, which stain would be the best, and what prep is required?

    I have an Evergrain composite deck can I use this to enhance it?
