    Only if you strip off the Penofin and brighten the wood.

    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.

    Would like to use TWP 1500 Pecan. Please advise on pre-staining prep.

    Prep first with the Gemini Restore Kit and light pressure washing. Let dry for 2 days before applying the 1520 Pecan.

    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.
