    I live in Phoenix Arizona, just had a large Pine Pergola installed in my yard and need a good stain that will last and protect my structure from the elements here in Arizona. Please give me a good recommendation that will last a long time and have good UV protection.
    Thank you!!

    Hello - I stained a new cedar gate with TWP 1500 Cedar color. I used the "let stand for 30-minutes then wiped clean" for a natural finish. The color is lighter than I anticipated. Thinking of going to your darker Rustic color. Question, can I stain over the Cedar color with the Rustic. Will it soak in adequately and keep the darker color or not. Suggestions.

    No it will not soak in now. Best to leave it alone and redo later on.

    I have a 2 story deck that is made of pressure treated wood. The deck is approx. 14 years old. The last time it was treated was 2 years ago with Thompsons. We also have 6 panels of lattice that will need to be done also. I don't mind a little bit of 'elbow grease', but if I am going to go to the expense, time and effort to do the job, I want it to last as long as possible. The deck faces north so it only gets the morning sun. We live in PA, so after reading reviews I see that I can only get the 1500 version. I looked for a store near me and there aren't any local places in our area that sell this product, is it online order only? I also thought I'd ask if you ever run any promotions, sales, etc. Any other tips would be appreciated. Thanks so much!

    We are an online retailer for TWP and would be able to ship to PA in about 2-3 business days.

    Jamie andrews:
    1. 2years
    2. Cypress
    3. Normal
    4. Yes, but it's been sanded down to the wood again. All stain removed. Early American was the stain color we used.
    5. 12x12 cypress post on our front porch. Sunlight hits them all day.
    We would like to use TWP now and we had them stained early American color. I would like to stay in that color range. How would I start with the TWP and what color. How much would the 5 gallon cost?

    Pricing for the TWP 1500 is on this link:

    After the sanding you should lightly clean and brighten with the Gemini Restore Kit. As for color, sell samples to test and we would suggest getting some to see the colors.

    I am installing brand new T-11 Pine siding on a shed. Do I have to wait to stain it or can I stain it right of way? Do I have to use wood conditioner to allow the stain to penetrate?

    I have a new construction barn that I am installing a 1x12 rough cut pine as siding on. I live in south Alabama and was wanting to know what you recommend for a dark brown stain.

    TWP 1503 Dark Oak would be your best option for vertical siding on a barn in AL.

    Love my fence:
    I have a bamboo fence. I have sealed it with TWP in the past, but I don't remember which product I used. Can you tell me 1) which product; 2) recommended temperatures to apply and dry; 3) how to prepare bamboo for resealing; and dry/cure time?

    You would want the 300 Series for Bamboo but we do not sell that version.

    Hello,
    We have a newly constructed Premium (#1) grade treated pine deck that we would like to stain. I already have some TWP #205 - California Cedar stain. Can this product be used to stain the floor of our new deck? rails and spindles will be painted.
    Thank you

    Yes but you will need to wait 4+ months to weather then prep first with the Gemini Restore Kit.

    I am building a new house where the exterior cedar siding is also used on one of the interior walls. For consistency, is there a problem using the 1500 stain indoors?You can use indoors. Just be aware that it is oil based and it will smell until it airs out fully.

    John M:
    1. 10 years
    2. Redwood
    3. Fair. Some splitting and rot in non weight bearing planks.
    4.) Yes. Many coats of Behr semi-transparent. Coats have failed and turned grey/silver.
    5.) 4 separate decks. 1 deck has 12 month sun exposure. 2 have partial year sun exposure. 1 has almost no sun exposure.

    Wood doesn't have the nice red you see newer decks and fences. Will the Redwood tint help renew its once beautiful natural reddish hue?

    Your first issue is to remove the Behr and that can be tricky when you have many coats applied. Best to strip off as much as possible, sand some if needed, and brighten when done. Once the wood is prepped well you can use any color of TWP that you want. We have samples to test on the site.
