    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?

    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;

    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:

    http://www.twpstainhelp.com/prepping-new-wood-for-twp-stains/

    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:

    http://www.twpstain.com/restore-a-deck-stripper-brightener-kit-detail

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