    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

    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.

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

    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.
