    Hi, we used the 1500 stain, cedar, on a redwood deck last August, after allowing the wood to remain untreated for a few months. Used Gemini cleaner + brightner, then applied 1 coat of TWP. There have always been some grayish stress. We are getting ready to re-stain with TWP again. What steps do you recommend, and how many coats of TWP shoul we apply?

    We have a30 year old pressure treated deck, The wood is in fair condition at best. We are replacing a few boards that have badly cracked. We pressure washed and now want to know which product we need to apply. The last treatment to the 550 square foot deck was TWP 200 applied in June 2002.

    Use the 1500 or the 100 for this.

    I have a 10 year old cedar deck. The wood is in good condition, but the stain is peeling badly. It is a solid stain product from Behr. I have tried to remove the stain with a stripper and a power washer and even after 8 hours working on it, I have only been able to get most of the stain off half the deck. Even then, there are still spots I have not been able to remove. My question is what is the best product to remove the remainder? And if I can't get all of it off, do you have a solid stain that will work. In addition, I have a raised connecting deck that I built of pressure treated wood that is holding the stain fine. It is a solid redwood stain color. How opaque is your stain?

    Solid stains cannot be removed effectively with a stripper. You will need to sand it all off. TWP does not have an opaque stain and it cannot be applied on top of one.

    We have a large pressure treated pine deck that has never been stained. About 7-8 years old, wood is in pretty decent shape. Sits in direct sun around swimming pool, just pressure washed it to get most of the mold/greying out. What stain would you suggest?

    Use the 1500 Series for this.

    Just built a brand new (last week) pressure treated pinewood dock on a lake here in Orlando, Florida. (Since new, it obviously has not been stained before). How long do I wait before staining it? And what do you recommend the twp 100 or 1500. I can not tell the difference? Also, I was told to stain it with a more solid color so it would last longer, but all of your stains are semi-transparent, correct?

    Thanks for your feedback,

    Tom

    Yes TWP is only semi-transparent colors. Use the 100 Series but read this first about TWP and new wood:

    I have a new deck that I have allowed to cure for 5 months. I am ready to clean, sand and stain the deck. It is pressure treated pine throughout. Your TWP 1500 stain reviews are good. I would like to see samples of your stain colors. Is there a local store where I can do that? My zip code is 30739.

    We have samples that you can get from our site:
