SEALED WOOD: Any previously applied finish must be removed before TWP can be applied.
The surface should be cleaned with a solution of 1 part household bleach to 1 part water and
should then be thoroughly rinsed with water. Finish can be removed with an appropriate stripper
following label instructions, by sanding with 60-80 grit sand paper, or by power washing. If
sanded, the surface should be thoroughly rinsed with water 2-3 different days after sanding.
Allow wood to dry a minimum of 48 hours in good drying conditions before finish coat
Does this mean I have to sand and remove the existing stain every year when I re-apply?
1)Speaking of which, how often should it be re-applied?

How many coats do you recommend?
We will reply to your comment shortly· 04/23/2013You cannot use a water repellent on top of or under the TWP. The TWP does shed water as all high quality stains do. You do not want the stain to "bead" like a car wax.
We will reply to your comment shortly· 04/23/2013I'm looking to buy TWP 1500 Series for a 9month old weathered cedar deck. I also want the deck to be water sealed. Do I need to purchase a sealer as well, or with the 1500 Series be sufficient?

We will reply to your comment shortly· 09/21/2012I have a 400 square foot presure treated deck over salt waterthat is 10 years old. I am plnning on 2 coats of TWP 1500 and would like to know how quickly can I start the second application? I will be using a rollor for the first coat and a brush for the second.

We will reply to your comment shortly· 08/23/2012We are in the process of building our log home and it is almost complete. We are using TWP 1500 for the exterior. (Natural) Can TWP 1500 also be used for the interior vertical wood log wall sides ? We\'d like to go with TWP 1500 Honeytone for the interior but not sure if it can be used on interior wood.
We will reply to your comment shortly· 07/31/2012Probably the excess heat and possible over application of the stain. I would brush them out ASAP.
We will reply to your comment shortly· 07/31/2012I put a coat of 1500 series stain on my deck. I am noticing some very small bubbles on the serface in some spots. Should I ignore this or try to brush htem out? What causes this situation? The first half of the deck did not have this occurence and dried in about 42 hours. It has been about 24 hours since I did the second half and that is where the bubbles are appearing.

We will reply to your comment shortly· 06/05/2012Should I coat the new PT wood along with the old, or wait for it to age some before staining?
We will reply to your comment shortly· 06/05/2012I would lightly spray on the first coat then back coat the second coat with a stain pad.
