    TWP 1500 and 100 are not allowed in Canada due to VOC laws.

    Sanded all paint off exterior 1940 yellow pine siding in Florida. Tweaking paint flecks off and washing off paint film a few times, tannin comes back. I like the tannin. Do I have to get it all out of the wood before I use 100 series, 101 Cedartone? Does tannin come through the stain? I don't care if it does as long as the wood stays protected. I have not cleaned and brightened yet. s

    It does not harm the wood just shows the tannin stains under the TWP. You do need to clean and brighten for the prep. Brightener does remove tannin stains in most scenarios.

    Hello,

    I have a customer that purchased dark oak TWP but meant to order a lighter shade. Not realizing she had ordered the incorrect color, she hired some people to paint the dark oak on her new fence. Do you have any suggestions for removing TWP from a bamboo fence? Any suggestions or help you could offer would be greatly appreciated :).

    Thank you!

    Heather

    You will need to use the Restore A Deck Stripper and pressure washing to remove. You may need a few applications of stripper to get it off.

    1940 exterior pine siding sanded down to bare wood from gray to fresh golden. Wood in good condition, some cracks. Gets lots of sun. I cleaned it once and must clean it again before I stain with 1500 (cuz it's been 3 weeks). Is the purpose of brightening it only to bring out the wood's color? It seems to have a nice color with just cleaning it. Should I brighten it; if so, why?

    Brightener neutralizes the deck cleaner or stain stripper, leaving the wood in a neutral pH balance. Also will help "swell" the pores of the wood so stain can penetrate a little better.

    Will Hudson:
    Built in 1990
    don't know
    good
    yes: Behr
    12X30 with railing around outside perimeter and 12" bench around perimeter
    How much TWP 1500 do I need?

    You will have to remove the Behr by stripping, pressure washing, sanding, and brightening the wood for the prep. There is a calculator to the right where you can enter your info for product needed.
