    I have green pressure treated deck. It is older so the green has faded some. When I apply stain how will the green come through. Looking at lighter stain color.
    Thanks

    Hard to say it depends on how well you prep. Best to test the stain colors with samples from our site.

    I have a new cedar fence which is 6' tall and about 300' long.Wood is new with no previous stain. I am considering staining with the dark oak stain. The fence was completed about 6 weeks ago. How long should I wait to stain and do you have any other suggestions. I have determined that I will probably need 15-20 gallons.

    Flood One Coat Stain Natural Finish was applied to my new cedar fence 3 years ago and was blotching from the beginning. It's time for a clean up!
    My new contractor has tried power washing and washing with deck cleaner but isn't able to remove it. Would TWP 1500 be appropriate in this situation in Denver? If not, what would you recommend instead?
    Thanks

    You will need to remove the CWF if you want to use TWP. Has the contractor tried a stain stripper when pressure washing?

    25 year old pressure treated that was previously treated with Cabot cedar toned oil stain. The wood is in good condition with light and darker markings

    Prep with the Restore A Deck Stripping kit to remove the Cabot. Stain with the TWP 1500 after the prep. Two coats applied with wet on wet technique.

    I have just cleaned, brightened, and stained my new, pressure-treated deck that has seasoned for 9 months. It looks great! What should I do now for maintenance and future re-staining? I live in Maine and the deck faces west with partial sun.

    Towards the bottom of the article, it talks about when to apply another coat to new wood.

    40 yrs old, new hampshire pine, good, stained with cabots semi transparent stain, oil base water cleanup stain, log home, hand hewn square logs w/dove tail corners. cracks and have been caulked

    Remove the Cabot by stripping, pressure washing, and sanding if needed. Apply the wood brightener after. Make sure the logs are free of any dirt and old coatings before applying the TWP 1500. @ light coats applied wet on wet.

    What will happen if I use TWP 1501 cedar over my peeling behr cedar finish? I got up the loose behr stain with my pressure washer but am not going to take the time to sand. It is OK with me if the only issue is I'm a t risk of the behr continuing to peel where it is still attached. After a few years doing this and maybe touching up with TWP between full applications, won't my whole deck eventually be fully TWP protected?
    It will not work. The Behr has to be removed first. Use a stain stripper and pressure wash again. Shoot for 95-100% removal.

    1. 3 years old
    2. Cedar
    3. Dirty
    4. Previously stained with Sherwin Williams Deckscapes Semi-Transparent.
    5. Deck, railings, steps and lattice along 3 sides of the deck. Deck balusters are black metal.

    Start by removing the SW product. Use the Restore A Deck Stripper kits. SW can be stubborn to remove, so you will need a pressure washer and might need to strip more than once. Once removed, apply the Brightener. Stain with the TWP 1500.
