    Hi

    I have an 15 yer old deck that has had various stains throughout the years. The last one applied was a semi transparent stain from Cabot and i want to remove any traces and stain w one of your products.

    The wood is pressure treated pine and wanted your opinion on clean up, the type of stain, and some color suggestions. I prefer lighter colors than dark stain.

    The deck is about 300 square feet and has railings all around.

    I live in NJ so it goes through a variety of seasons. The deck is semi covered by maple trees and gets sun on only a portion of the deck.

    Thanks

    Steve

    Prep with the Restore A Deck Stain stripper to remove. Apply and pressure was off. Repeat if needed so all is removed. Apply the Wood Brightener after. Let dry for a few days and use the TWP 1500 Series for NJ. Honeytone is the lightest tint.

    Would like guidance in staining our new (2 months) cedar pergola. It is rough cut, some splits and knot holes. Looks like it has faded quite a bit already. How many coats? How long between coats?

    I am having a pergola built out of Western cedar. The wood is new. What if any prep work is needed? Also which of the TWP stains would be best? Also, is TWP stain oil based? How many coats are necessary?

    See this about new wood:

    TWP 100 and 1500 series are oil based. Which to use on new wood depends on your state VOC laws. Use the 100 of you can, otherwise the 1500.

    Deck is coming on 3 years old. Treated pine. Never protected. Finishing up the cleaning brightening step. Have the TWP stain we want. Since it's a newer deck that's never been treated, should we only apply one coat of stain, or is it old enough to apply two coats.

    You can do 2 light coats applied wet on wet since it is 3 years old.

    10 years old
    pressure treated pine
    good condition (no splits,cracks or warping
    Behr transparent cedar naturaltone
    peeling stain, some green alge, very limited sun exposure. (north side of house)

    You will need to remove the Behr to use the TWP .
    Try the Restore A Deck stain Stripper and pressure wash off. Repeat if needed for any stubborn spots. Use the RAD wood brightener after. Let dry for 48 hours+ before applying.

    Hi, I wanted to know the difference between the TWP 100 and TWP 1500. I live in NC and need something that can handle the hot humid environment. The deck I am staining is treated yellow pine, about 10 yrs old, gray, has been cleaned with deck cleaner, and never stained.

    The TWP 1500 is complaint for all states while the 100 is compliant for about 36 states. See these articles for more info:

    I have a brand-new red wood deck 900 square-foot Seasoned f for three months. What would you recommend for sealing? I want to keep you original look.

    See this about new wood:

    The Honeytone is the lightest tint that will offer UV protection.

    I'm trying to understand the difference in 100 vs 1500. One says it prevents mold and mildew and one just says not prone to mold and mildew. One says it sheds water longer. Is that longer than 100 or just longer than competitors?

    The 1500 is more expensive so would that mean it is better?

    My wood is regular pressure treated deck boards from Home Depot. Installed this past December. So, I think I am at a point where the wood is ready.

    Thanks.
    Dennis

    Both prevent mold. Both last about the same. The TWP 1500 is complaint for all states while the 100 is compliant for about 36 states. See these articles for more info:

    I used salvaged 4x6 port orford cedar that was 20 plus years old and looks and smells wonderful. It's been planed and sanded for an outdoor structure. Which stain stain should I use and is there a retail location I can go to near Portland Or.

    Use the TWP 100 Series and we can ship to you there in Oregon.

    Wanted to know what is meant by a second coat "wet on wet" and is a second coat necessary? I have stripped the deck but not all of the previous stain could be removed. The previous stain was Sherwin Williams Deckscape
