    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.

    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.

    Mary W:
    I would like to use this TWP 1500 stain on a wooden "tree fort/playhouse" that tend to be in most back yards now days and a wooden hexagon picnic table with attached seating (all wood minus screws). Is it safe to put on the items? The "tree fort/playhouse" is around 10-15 yrs old, previously stained however use, time and weather have washed it away, the wood is in good condition. The table is at least 15 years old, still in very good condition, was previously stained however it has been pressure washed and no stain remains.

    As long as the wood is free of coatings then you are good to proceed with using the TWP. It will work great for the fort and table.

    We have used all the TWP products to redo our deck-it looks amazing-My husband tracked across a part of the deck with his shoes on (from wet part to completely dry section we had done a couple days before). There were dark stain foot prints. We took a roller and went over the track marks with a light coverage of stain, Now we have dark shiny patches-how do we fix.

    You cannot spot fix perfectly. Only thing you try is using a rag with mineral spirits and wipe off the excess shiny stain that is on top of the wood. It may help some.
