    I have a cedar privacy fence that is approx. 1 1/2 years old. Nothing has been done to the fence. It has grayed out and I want to stain it. What all would you recommend to do this. The fence is approx. 285 ft. long by 6 ft. high, gets full sun in central Ky.

    The large deck/porch was half done on Sat. It rained Sunday overnight hard, and when the contractor returned to finished Monday morning, he wiped away the water off/down the tops of the uncovered landing, and steps. It dried in full sun (90 degrees) about 4 hrs and then he stained it as he said the wood dried out enough. I'm just concerned that he applied it too early, just to complete the job to get paid. How much time should be considered 'long enough' to determine whether I was right? Or what should I look for?

    Hard to say if there will be an issue or not. As long as the TWP soaks into the wood and dries fully then most likely it will be fine.

    I'm in SE Ohio. I have a deck, faces east, 14' x 70', plus steps. Nearby lake (so humidity & moisture most of the time). Made from pressure treated pine, installed Oct 2013. Never been stained. Want something light colored but has UV protection. Is TWP 1500 the product to use? After powerwashing should I use the Gemini restore kit? Any help appreciated!

    You use the
    Gemini Restore Kit while pressure washing. Yes you would need the 1500 series for Ohio.

    I think I am in love with Prairie Gray, but I live in California! Does the TMP1500 come in Prairie Gray? Our redwood fence was installed about 4 months ago. It is 3 dimensional, rough and never stained. I love the color of the redwood, but it is a little too "bright"next to our dark gray (BM Chelsea Gray) house. It's a lotta fence, 30 linear ft. on either side of the house. Please advise.

    Sorry but it does not.

    10 years
    Pine
    Weathered
    Not been stained previously
    Gets exposed to all four seasons ranging from cold, snowy and dry all the way to hot, and humid with our fair share of rain as well.

    Does untreated weathered wood always need to be cleaned first and is it better to apply in the less warm and humid fall weather or is warm, humid summer weather okay too?

    Prep first with the Gemini Restore Kit. Stain with the TWP 1500 Series. Does not matter if done now or in the Fall.

    What is the best way to prep to revive wood and what TWP series shoudl I use?

    Prep with the Gemini Restore Kit and light pressure washing. Stain with either the 100 or 1500 depending on which state you are in and what is allowed in your state.

    We are staining a log home for a customer. What prep needs to take place to the logs. The logs are in pretty good shape. It does need to be chinked. Would I do that before the staining or after?

    The logs need to be cleaned and or stripped of any previous coatings. A wood brightener should be applied as final prep. Chink after or before.

    1. 18years
    2. Pine
    3. gray with mildew
    4. in 2008 with Olympic Maximum (3 year warranty)
    5. Water tends to stand after a rain but it also gets blasted with afternoon sun which makes the boards extremely hot. Would using outdoor carpet be harmful to your stains?

    Clean and brighten for prep to remove the gray and mold using the Gemini Restore Kit. Stain with two coats of the TWP applied wet on wet. Outdoor rugs are fine after fully dry.
