    I just finished wrapping my pressure treated railing posts in 1x6 flat cedar stock, and my deck rails are made out of kiln dried Douglas Fir (top/bottom rails as well as cap), how long do I have to wait to stain them (Wil be using the TWP 1500 as I live in MA) and is there any prep work that I have to do beforehand? Thanks

    I was looking to see how long of a wait is needed before applying twp 1500? I just installed a new double kiln dried pt pine deck 8/3. It had 18% moisture content when purchased. I live in western NY and been installed for a month now. Any advice on when to apply stain and steps to take would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Since it a month old it should be okay since it is kiln dried. You will need to prep and remove the mill glaze with the Gemini Restore Kit first. Only one coat of the 1500.

    age is 10 years
    Pressurer treated pine
    condition is good
    previously stained with Sansin water based product
    deck has been cleaned with a deck cleaner and pressure washed
    irregular deck/stairs approximately 500 sq ft

    Ron, make sure all the Sansin is removed first before applying the TWP 1500. TWP will not work on top of this.

    Other brands have pressure treated formulas.
    What formula of TWP matches that.

    Is the calculator estimating all board surfaces of the deck.

    TWP can be used on all wood types. Does not matter on the series.

    I am having a new pressure treated deck built. Does your color chart reflect using pressure treated wood

    No it is on cedar wood. Best to get samples to test the color.

    Sachin:
    I finished staining my deck last weekend. After a day of drying I immediately realized that I had over applied the stain in places and the deck was looking Shiny (more like a glazed donut). In the last 3-4 days we have had a couple of showers and I noticed that there is small puddles of water standing on the deck after the rain. Initially I thought it was okay and eventually the extra stain will wear off. But today I noticed that in certain areas which were Shiny immediately after staining are now turning slightly greenish. So I took long brush and tried to wipe away the water.
    Please advise on next steps.
    Regards
    Sachin

    Not much you can do now. Just leave alone and in a year or two you will need to strip it off and start over.

    I've used the Gemini 2 part RESTORE A DECK to clean and brighten our aged cedar (12 month)deck. At the start of the project there was a 4 day weather window, no rain. Unfortunately, that has changed. It looks like rain for many days. How long can I wait to apply the TWP1500 stain after the deck has been cleaned?

    A couple of weeks and it should be still good to stain.

    4. Never been stained or treated
    5. 6' x 144' need to do both sides

    Use the Gemini Restore Kit and pressure washing to restore wood and prep for the 1500 Series.

    For you to use TWP you will need to strip off the Cabot first with the Restore A Deck Stripper and use the brightener after for the prep.

    Age of wood? - Unknown, was there when we purchases home.
    Type of wood? Presser Treated Pine
    Condition of the wood? Most was covered in mold/mildew. I've pressure washed everything and it is now mold/mildew free.
    Has it been stained previously and if so with what brand of stain? I believe there was a stain on at least a portion on it, but I do not know what kind.

    We are on a lake in VT. There are a lot of stairs and railings and a small deck. The area has already been pressure washed. Is there anything else I need to do before stain/sealer? The wood looks OK after pressure washing.

    Randy Boswood:
    Can the TWP 1500 be used on this type of wood? 15 years old, good condition, I will strip old worn Penofin using your stripper. Area coverage 800sf

    TWP is not suggested for IPE.
