    Our redwood deck is five years old. The wood is in good condition. It was previously stained twice with Honey Teak Cabot Australian Timber Oil. The first time the ATO was oil-based, second time was water-based, which didn't last as well. Do you have a color that is similar to Honey Teak?

    No we do not have a matching color. You would need to remove the cabot 100% before using the TWP. TWP cannot be applied on top of this.

    I have a treated pine deck and have used Cabot Australian Oil to stain and treat it.My deck floor shows no sign of the oil but the upright portions still show the color. Indiana Voc reg's have eliminated the sale of this oil. What can I do to restain? The wood has mixed old and new wood. I have at least 1500 sq ft of wood surface to treat.

    Remove the Cabot AT with the Restore A Deck stripper and pressure washing. Use the RAD brightener after this is done. Stain with the TWP 1500 for Indiana.

    red wood, constructed April 15th, wood in pretty good condition, though it has been wet a lot. Not previously stained, area is flat and area is 22 feet by 24 feet. We don't want to add much colour and need it to be mildew/uv protected.

    Look at the the TWP 1515 for the lightest color with Uv protection and mold prevention. Prep first with Gemini Restore Kit and only one coat for the new wood.

    Would you recommend applying a "sealer" after your TWP 1500 dries?
    This is a new, year old pine deck.

    No you cannot add a sealer on top of the TWP.

    House with clear cedar siding installed 5 years ago and previously stained with Flood oil base stain with penatrol.

    Can't find anyone who still carries Flood. What would you suggest? Thank you so much

    Prep with the Restore A Deck Stripper and pressure washing. Use the Restore A Deck Brightener when done. Stain with the 1500 Series after it dries in a few days.

    Micki"]Hi. We just used TWP 1500 on a pressure treated wood deck that was installed last year. We put a second coat on it and did not wipe down the excess stain so now it looks shiny and is tacky. I know that we didn't put the stain on correctly. Is there anything we can do now to fix it. Thanks.[/quote]

    My deck was built in 1998, so is 16 years old. It's probably pine, maybe cedar, in okay condition for Colorado, about 200 sq. ft., and has been stained previously a dark reddish brown, although I don't know what kind, since I bought the house in 2003. I've sanded it, but do I really need to clean it?

    Yes you should clean after sanding to help the penetration of the TWP.
