    Hello,

    I have a new pine pressure treated wood deck that's seats around a in ground pool. Full all day sun with chorine water landing on the deck.

    What would be the best stain & time to wait before staining the deck for the wood to be dry to accept stain.

    See here about new wood:

    Use the 100 or 1500.

    Hello there.

    I will get a brand new Western Red Cedar wood for exterior siding. It has been acclimated in a local area nearby under sun/shade for at least 6 months. It will get a smooth face with grooves much like the Eichler style siding.

    What kind of prep work is needed? Originally, I planned to light sand them and then apply the stain throughout the wood with the TWP 1500 dark tint stain. It's about 1600 sq ft worth of siding. I hope to mix a few of the available TWP tints together to get that blackish look much like charred burnt stain.

    This home is located in Bay Area, California.

    Thank you!

    You should clean and brighten for prep to "open" the wood grain for the pores. Just one coat on new wood.

    22 years old wood
    Ontario Cedar - 1000 ft sq.
    Good condition with minimal cracking but allowed to weather and grey
    Stained with numberous brands over the years (Sikens Cetol DEK, Behr, than just THompson weather treat . . . . stains all peeled even Sikens which was 6 side coated on every board).
    multilayered deck with hi point about 6 ft above ground and low point about 1 foot above ground. edge finished with lattice.

    To be able to use the TWP you will need to remove all old coatings. Either strip and or sand to remove. Brighten wood after. Stain with TWP 1500 Series after removal and drying.

    I have cedar siding and I have oiled it with shake oil for the past ten years. I did pressure wash it but you can see oil is still present. could I use this 1500 series on it? how would I prep it? every few years I pressure wash and then re oil how many years of having twp 1500 stain on my house before the gray starts coming on

    You should prep with the Restore A Deck Stripper and pressure washing:

    You should get 4-6 years on vertical wood siding when use the TWP 1500 in a stain color.

    I have a log home that currently has woodgaurd stain on it and I would like to switch to twp. How would you suggest prepping the logs? Most of the wood is in good condition, the west side has a little bit of graying. The house is a full sun exposure in Illinois.

    Prep by removing the woodgaurd with the Restore A Deck Striper and a pressure washer. After the stripping is done, use the Wood Brightener to neutralize.

    Do you ship in Canada.
    The deck in question is new wood brown pressure treated and I used Sienna Cut brown cut preservative from Home Depot to preserve and all cuts and exposed wood. Slight difference in colour. Will 1500 series cover these spots

    TWP is not allowed in Canada. Sorry

    JOHN WALTERS:
    Under "Coats Required" the response is "1-2, wet on wet". So, is it 1 or 2 coats? And, what is "wet on wet"?

    1 or 2 coats depends on the ago of the wood. Only 1 coat for new wood. See here about wet on wet:

    Have 1 month old rough sawn cedar fencing. The wood is not exactly smooth has splinters. Should I use a brush, pad, or roller?

    Stain pad or brush. You can also spray on with a pump sprayer then back wipe to ensure it applies evenly.
