    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.

    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.

    My daughter bought a house recently in South Carolina. It has a smaller deck and staircase on e side of an enclosed sunroom and a stair set on the other.
    Both are in need of re-staining. I don't know what was used previously and I don't know how it was prepped. We plan to power wash, What would be the best product to use for this application? I was thinking of trying the 1500 .....

    Either the 100 Series or the 1500 will work well. Make sure that your prep includes not only cleaning but removal of any old coatings.

    I Wish to preserve the natural colors of a New cedar fence located in Central Texas. My first selection was your TWP 1500 clear, but, It appears the TWP 1500 clear stain offer no UV protection. Which of the stains is most likely to offer the greatest chance for preserving the 'natural' colors.

    All the colored stain will protect from UV graying. The darker the tint, the greater the UV protection will be. The Honeytone color is the lightest tint with Uv protection.

    Looking for a clearer type stain (shows wood grain) that I can use on T&G pine that will be an interior cathedral ceiling material, however, as it goes beyond the interior walls and continues outside it becomes the exterior soffit material. I'd also like to be able to overcoat to achieve a satin finish with probably a waterborne product. can you help!

    Built the house in 1995
    Tongue and groove porch flooring
    Excellent
    Yes, with TWP on front porch. 2nd stain was Cabot. Has not been stained since 2004. Stain on deck which is in good condition but needs to be stained. Deck added 2005. Stained only once.
    Front porch sunny in am while deck is sunny afternoon. Will prepare surfaces properly.

    Make sure to remove the previous Cabot coatings. Once removed and brightened, apply two light coats of the TWP applied wet on wet.

    Hi There. I have a second story deck with [b]mahogany[/b] railings and posts. The decking is Ipe which, we are just cleaning and applying a conditioner to and letting the wood gray naturally. The railings are our concern. We what them stained very dark (just ordered your 1500 series dark oak and black walnut samples)any advice ? The mahogany is new and has been exposed to weather for about two months, sanded with 80grit than 120 grit(will sand again). Railings will be washed down and then cleaned with acetone prior to staining. Looking for durability and ease of recoating when the time comes. We live on a body of salt water in the New York area. Your products get great reviews, any advice you might have would be appreciated. Thank you.

    No more sanding. Prep with the Gemini Kit before staining to open the grain. Acetone may help to swell the wood pores but is not a cleaner.
