    I had our local Ace Hardware build me a pine Bistro patio set. It was built in June 2014. Do I still need to wait 6 mo. to seal the wood? What should be my process to protect this patio set? It is under a covered patio. I need to go ahead and order what I will need if you could advise me I would really appreciate it. Thanks -

    I would wait until Fall, lightly prep and apply once coat of the stain.

    We have an old deck that has peeling Sherwin Williams Deckscapes on it that we are scrapping off. It was an opaque brown and it will be really hard to get off the sides of the boards not to mention the tops. Do we need to get it all off Before putting on the TWP or is there some other solution?

    Yes you need to get it all off as you cannot apply a semi-transparent stain over a solid opaque.

    I have a 2 year old deck that had a water-based stain applied when it was built (this is the deck's third summer). We are in the middle of sanding the deck, the railing, and an attached mudroom that has cedar siding before using TWP 1500 on it, as the water-based product didn't hold up well at all. I have TWP 1500 on the sides of my log home, which we applied two years ago and it looks great. :-)

    My question is -- after sanding the railing, deck, and mudroom, do we need to hose them off or is it sufficient to wipe down to remove dust before staining?

    It's been a soggy summer so far, so there haven't been a lot of days in a row where we don't expect rain, heavy morning fog, or both and the wood isn't staying dry for long! If we need to hose, there need to be two nice days without moisture on the deck before we can stain, then two nice days afterwards while the stain is drying, right?

    Thanks for the advice!

    Yes you should heavily rinse the deck with water to remove the sand dust. Let dry for 2 days and stain. Thanks

    Do I have to sand my deck before applying TWP 1502 ? I t's a 9 year old deck without any sealers on it

    No you do not have to sand but you do need to prep with the Gemini Restore Kit.

    1. Use the 100 Series after removing the Bakers with the Restore A Deck Stripper and Brighten when done
    2. Strip not clean for prep. Easier as well.[/quote]
    Thanks for your comments. Can you tell me why 100 series is better than 1500 series. Is this because of the type of the wood/weather etc?[/quote]
    Not that it is better, just will penetrate a little better then the 1500.
    Bakers is a watered down version of the TWP 200 Series.[/quote]
    My existing Stain is Baker's Super Cedar. Which twp stain is closer in appearance to Baker's Super Stain?

    I am sorry but we are not familiar with their stain colors.

    I have an older treated pine deck that has a semi-transparent stain on it. How do I remove it, do I use the solid strip, as in your video, I do not see it for sale. I plan on ordering a gallon of your TWP 1500.

    Hilty:
    Have use stripper to removed old failed stain from my 4 year old pressure treated deck and used neutralizer/brightner. Am now sanding remaining stain stripper did not get off. After sanding should I use a brightner again? Am planning on using TWP 1500, how will I know if two coats will be needed? Thank you so much.

    Yes a brightener after the sanding will help. If the first stain absorbs right in then apply a very light second coat "wet on wet". You want the TWP to penetrate all the way into the wood grain.
