    I have brand new tounge and groove pine going on ceiling. I intend to stain prior to putting up. Will the TWP 1500 in natural toner work for this application? This is for an exterior vaulted porch ceiling. Do I need to condition the wood in any way to prevent splotchy areas due to it being pine?
    Thanks

    Our 3 year old pine deck was initially stained with Arborcoat semi-transparent and a clear coat. Due to peeling we are not going to use it again. I have pressure washed as much of the loose film as possible and was going to lightly sand. Anything else I need to do before applying the TWP 1500?

    You will need to remove 100% of the Arbor coat if you want to use TWP or any other brand of stain. You will need to sand it all off, then use the Gemini Restore Kit for the final prep.

    My cedar deck is 6 years old. It has had a number of different stains applied and stripped off. The first was Cabots oil based, followed by Home Depots transparent, and then semi transparent. The Cabots was very prone to mildew. The Home Depot stains pealed up with in a year. The wood is in good condition, and I have sanded all the stain off. What prep should I do from here? One section of deck gets sun light the entire day, the other tow are under cover of a roof.

    Stain pad applicators are best.

    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.
