    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.

    We recently bought a home in Redmond,WA state. The home has beautiful deck made completely of Cedar wood. The oil-based stain previously used on the deck is no longer shipped to the state by the manufacturer. It is Baker's Gray Away stain (Super Cedar). I have the following questions--
    1. What is the best alternative stain in TWP series that will go with previous stain?
    2. What is the best Deck Cleaner to go along with it?
    3. If there is no alternative, then what is the recommended stain stripper + stain?[/quote]
    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?

    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.

    jay lorenzana:
    - 10 yrs
    - Cedar I think
    - Neglected, some evidence of prior paint/stain
    - not sure, mostly all gone. Have pressure washed snd sanded it all away
    - wood now looks better after pressure washing. Needs protection now.

    Looks like you prepped well so go ahead and stain with two light coats of the TWP.

    Wood is grade a cedar- 28 years old
    Bleach used 28 years ago
    Good condition- weathered
    This is for the whole house

    Prep first with the Gemini Restore Kit and pressure washing to remove the weathered graying. Stain with two coats of the TWP 1500 Series.

    Robert Luke:
    I purchased and used the Natural 1500 series on my deck last year, regular preasure treated lumber, and am very pleased so far. How would it work if I were to build a Chaise Lounge out of white oak and then stained it with the same stain? Will it hold up the same. Will it soak in to the White Oak ok? Will it be safe to sit on?

    Yes it will work on this but just one coat.

    Larry Patzer:
    * New redwood deck planks
    * Has not been stained or treated in any way

    What determines whether to use one or two coats?
    Should all six faces of each deck plank be stained?

    No need to stain all sides. Read this for new wood:

    I recently used this product to stain my covered porch and noticed that it seems to hold it's color well when accidently spilled on the concrete patio. Can I use this to cover all of the concrete patio or do you recommend another product?

    No TWP is not a concrete stain.
