    Roxanne Dickey:
    Age of wood: installed 4-2014
    Type of wood: cedar
    Condition of wood; new
    Never stained - it's new
    Description of area: Outdoor deck partial shade.
    Should we use TWP 100 or 1500? What prep should we do. Since it's new wood, should we only do one coat this year?

    Where are you located? Yes on the one coat. Please read this: http://www.twpstainhelp.com/prepping-new-wood-for-twp-stains/

    We are looking for a stain for our redwood playset. It is only 5 months old and they recommended that we restain it this fall. We sanded it down really well and plan on washing it down with a strong hose. Do we need to strip the old stain off before applying the new stain. Also which stain would you recommend?

    Ron Berger:
    Is the 1530 Natural a completely clear finish? What is the sheen of the product? I have new cedar that has been up for about 2-months, can I go ahead and stain? Should I use the cleaner product before I apply stain to new wood?
    Thanks,
    Ron

    No the 1530 is not clear. TWP has no shine. Please read these two articles to help with your questions:

    Project is an outdoor front covered porch in 1879 Queen Anne Victorian home in northeastern U.S.
    I'm not sure the age of the wood - guessing it's about 15-20 years.
    Wood = Mahogany
    Prior owner used a high gloss poly - incredibly slippery in winter weather. I previously stained with old formula Cabot Australian Timber Oil. Did not last as long as I'd hoped. Need to replace about 9 rotted boards as part of the project. Would TWP 1500 be the best product in your line?

    Yes but you must remove the old stain poly and ATO first.

    I treated my cedar fence about 7 years ago with Olympic Maximum stain/sealer. It has mostly worn off since then. How would I prep the fence prior to applying TWP? Thanks

    Use the Restore A Deck Stripper and pressure washing to remove the rest of the old stain. Use the brightener when done.

    Dave Combs:
    The cedar was kiln dried and pre stained with sickens 077 last August

    I have cleaned the deck with restore a deck and brightner

    What type of spray applicator works best

    Should I use TWP 1500? what is the difference between TWP100 and 1500

    Make sure to remove the sikkens completely. Cleaning is not enough. Use the 1500 for this.

    Yes you need to remove the old stain first.

    So Do I also need to clean it first before applying the stripper and brightener afterwards?
