    The decking is 1 1/2 years old. Wood is pressure treated pine. Unstained wood has minor gray and algae. Most of the wood is smooth. There is a portion of the vertical section that is Dog-Ear pressure treated pine fence rough surface. Any tips would be helpful.

    Prep to restore the color and remove the graying with the Gemini Restore Kit. Stain with the TWP 1500 series after it dries to two days. Two light coats applied "wet on wet" for more tips, please see here: http://www.twpstainhelp.com/

    Sharon Hixson:
    Decks of varying ages, 10+ years in shade, 5 years in partial shade and 3 years in full sun in central Pennsylvania. Treated pine in mainly good condition, stained in Cabot semi-transparent stain. Wondering if you carry a solid stain so all decks will be a consistent color. Also, what do you recommend.

    We do not have a solid stain. Prep by stripping all decks and brightening with the Restore A Deck products. Once clean and free of old coatings, you should get a consistent appearance.

    Have roughly 550 sq ft total. Your calculator says one thing, but also says one gallon for 1x1 sq ft.
    Thanks!

    5-6 gallons for two coats applied wet on wet. One coat and you will need about 3-4 gallons.

    Can HVLP (3-stage) be used to apply TWP 1500? If so, any advice?

    It can be sprayed. Just apply evenly and back wipe to ensure an even application.
