    age of wood: 28 years
    type of wood: unknown? treated
    condition of wood: fair
    previously stained with super deck product
    10 x 20 deck

    Remove the Super Deck first. Use the Restore A Deck stripper, apply, wait 10 minutes, and pressure wash off. After finished with the stripping, apply wood brightener to all the wood. Let dry for 48 hours before applying the 1500 Series.

    Live inland from Santa Barbara, CA; weather is Summer hot, Winter rain (sometimes); Redwood Deck made 1991. Used Thompson Water Seal about 4 or 5 years ago which has worn off. Want as long lasting semi-transparent as is possible that will leave the Redwood looking like Redwood. It has grayed a bit; but still Redwood. Trees shade most of it.

    Prep first with the Gemini Restore Kit. As for colors, we would suggest some samples: http://www.twpstain.com/stain-samples

    I have a new deck, currently being installed, of kdat pressure treated pine. Does your stain offer UV protection? Please advise best stain.

    Yes the TWP offers UV protection. For KDAT wood, we suggest letting it sit for a few weeks after install. Prep with the Gemini Restore Kit to remove the mill glaze and apply 1 coat of stain this year. Apply another light coat in 12 months. Use the TWP 1500 Series.

    I am preparing to restrain our Deck which is about 5 years old and
    was build with pressure treated lumber.We stained the deck 2 years
    ago with your TWP stain and need to restain the deck now and will need to purchase the stain but will have to check on the color.Last
    time we used brush for railings and car wash brush per your recommendation.Could I also spray your stain? I have some Resore -
    A - Deck left but not the cleaner. Do I need to use both to get the
    Proper results. Thank you.

    Yes you can spray the TWP but you will need to back brush the stain to ensure it applies evenly and penetrates well. Yes you need the RAD cleaner for the prep.

    Pressure treated lumber
    Excellent
    No
    No idea. A regular size deck for a 3000 square feet house.

    Prep with the Gemini Restore Kit first before applying the TWP. Let dry for 2-3 days then apply two light coats of the TWP 1500 Series. Apply with wet on wet technique.

    I am re staining a deck that had she rein Williams solid oil stain. I need a solid color stain that doesn't mold. My deck is close to a big oak tree. The last stain got black mold. Please recommend best stain. I power cleaned it yesterday. I can't get all the old stain off but got all the loose to spray off.

    TWP does not make a solid stain so it will not work. You can use our Deck Revive:

    Use the Permabond first.

    Good day,

    I would like to know where I may purchase a spray can, if you even sell TWP in spray cans, to preserve a new mailbox stand and the answers to the questions follow:
    1. New
    2. Cedar
    3. Excellent
    3. The pole has yet to be stained
    4. Approximately 1 piece of cedar 4' high and 4x4"
    I believe the product I would like is your TWP 1530 Natural although defer to your best recommendation.
    Thanks in advance and have a terrific Thursday!

    All my very best,
    Richard Townsend

    We do not sell spray cans, just gallon sizes. The 1530 would work well.

    I am trying to match a twp 1500 color that is closest to TWP 200 California Cedar? I am staining a deck built 2 years ago and I like the Calif Cedar shade. Any help would be appreciated.

    There is not a close match for the 205 Cal Cedar in the 1500 Series or 100 Series.

    Barry Sullivan:
    I have a new cedar fence that is 6 months old never been treated. It is 1600 sq.ft. I live in Texas.What kind and how much stain do I need,and do I need to clean before staining?

    Prep with the Gemini Restore Kit. I am assuming this is rough cut wood? if so you can apply two light coats "wet one wet". You will need roughly 12-16 gallons for the two coats when applying to 1600 sq. feet. Use either the 1500 or 100.
