We will reply to your comment shortly· 06/07/2013We built 2 PT pine decks: one last July and one this April. We're in Upstate New York so lots of snow/cold wintering. Will we be able to stain both decks at the same time this August/September? Or should we let the new deck winter before staining? (Does it stain better after weathering 12 months instead of 4?)
We will reply to your comment shortly· 06/03/2013Rustic is more red then brown.
We will reply to your comment shortly· 06/03/2013I recently applied a sample bottle of 1516 Rustic to several small sections of a stripped and cleaned 15 year old PT pine deck. The color turned out very red. As red as my neighbors cheap redwood color on his deck. Am I doing something wrong or is rustic a red stain as apposed to the nice brown shown on your site?

We will reply to your comment shortly· 06/03/2013John Kanen, TWP 1500 is not legal for Canada.
We will reply to your comment shortly· 06/03/2013Can I use the 1500 series on the underside of the roof covering the deck? It is pine and open with beams showing. Plan to use a natural color.
We will reply to your comment shortly· 06/03/2013Can you tell me if you ship to Victoria, British Columbia Canada?
If so, what is the cost and what is the duty charge?
It would seem that in Canada we can only get sub par rated fence and deck stains.

I 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.
The deck has not been treated in + 5 years and is dry. We just completed a thouough cleaning and brightening.
The TWP must be applied wet-on-wet, that is you will need to apply the second coat before the first one dries out. An air spray gun is the preferred method, if you do not have one, or want to invest in one, then an spray pump can be used instead.
We will reply to your comment shortly· 05/09/2013Strip and brighten the Behr stain to remove as much as possible. Sand after if needed as the Behr can be very difficult to remove when stripping. When the wood is free of the Behr coatings then you can apply the TWP 1500.
We will reply to your comment shortly· 05/08/2013Properly prepared my 1500 square ft deck 2 years ago following instructions using Behr Stain. By early the following spring most of the decks were pealing/flaking. I live in New York State south of Buffalo and get all weather conditions. The pressure treated deck wood has weathered but is structurally sound. What is the recommended stripper and stain that you would apply? The TWP sounds like my best bet. I may even rent a belt sander to do the 1500 sq feet of decking not counting the 400 balusters and deck rails and posts! The verticals did hold up better than the horizontal areas so this will require even more stripping than the decking. Please recommend best approach.
We will reply to your comment shortly· 04/30/2013The 100 is a little easier to apply.
We will reply to your comment shortly· 04/30/2013I'm not sure which I'm going to get yet.
We will reply to your comment shortly· 04/30/2013Luis, about 8-10 gallons for the two coats. Please read this article:
We will reply to your comment shortly· 04/29/2013Does this require the preciously mentioned prep work including sanding?
We will reply to your comment shortly· 04/29/2013for approx 850sq ft of pressure treated timber surface area, how much shoudl I get?
Describe wet on wet application?
Im trying to figure out how you would do that without footprints everywhere!
We will reply to your comment shortly· 04/29/20131. 2 coats wet on wet.
2. Not when reapplying the TWP on top of TWP, just when switching brands.
Typically is reapplied every 2+ years.
We will reply to your comment shortly· 04/29/20132) in the PDS it states: "
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?
We will reply to your comment shortly· 04/29/20131)I live in new england. The deck is in direct sunlight about 25% of the time. between deck, stairs and railings, i probably have aboud 850sq ft of surface to cover.
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?
