    Just finished building a 16'x16' deck. It is made of yellow pine, treated. Brand new lumber. How long should I wait until I stain it? Thanks.

    I understand that I should use the restore kit but is it absolutely necessary? I'm looking to just get another 2-3 years out of the deck here in Michigan. In other words, will the TWP 1500 still do a decent job without the restore kit? I know it's not optimal.

    Thanks

    It has to be prepped correctly for the stain to work correctly.

    I stained my 10 year old deck with TWP 100 cedartone after stripping the old stain about 2 years ago. Can I simply put on a cedartone coat of TWP 100 or 1500 right on top of it now with just a hose wash as prep? Same color and wood is a bit porous.

    Thanks

    Since it has been two years, you should prep with the Gemini Restore Kit and reapply the TWP.

    1 part of the deck is 15+ yr pressure treated wood that was sanded to new wood, the other part is 3yr Lowe's redwood and both were stained with Messemer's UV Plus Natural Redwood about 2 yrs ago. With hail damage, both will be sanded to new wood and my fence will be power washed and stained. According to the insurance deck is 483.50 SF, fence is 2256.00 SF. My wife suffers from chemical sensitivity so I am thinking the TWP 1500 will be best. How many gallons will I need to do 2 coats on the deck and just 1 coat on the fence?

    About 5 gallons for 2 coats on the deck and 15 gallons for 1 coat on the fence.

    We have a pressure treated deck , 1 year old, we will pressure wash the deck before we stain. It gets full sun most of the day and humidity is a factor. We life in PA so we have to get the low VOC. What do you recommend for stain? I like the color of the deck on your web page. Would like it to look natural...

    Look at TWP 1515 Honeytone or TWP 1530 Natural.

    Building exterior stairway. Stringers built with 4"x 12" treated and painted a dark brown. Purchased 1 Gal. 1502 from FSC Coatings in San Diego, Ca. to stain Balusters and Handrail built with clear heart Redwood, It is slightly more Red than desired on my test piece. I would like to know if I could add a 1.5 - 2 oz. sample of one of the darker colors in the series and which you'd recommend?

    New Clear Heart (Kiln-dried) Redwood sanded with 80 grit.

    Thanx for your Help.

    You can mix TWP colors together. You will need more then the small sample to make a noticeable difference. Dark Oak color. Also see this about new wood;
