    Since it has been 4 years you should use the Restore A Deck stripper and Restore A Deck Brightener for prep.

    I had a new cedar deck built. I hired a "painter" who used Porter Acri-Shield stain. Semi-Transparent alkyd/oil. It has been on the deck for about 6 months. The application was splotchy , and we have a lot of fading. My plan is to use TWP 1500. There is no flaking, do I need to use a deck cleaning agent before I apply or stripper?

    You cannot apply TWP on the Porter. Strip and or sand to remove. Brighten wood when done.

    jackie avignone:
    I just applied the TWP1500 in natural to my new Hemlock posts and headers. The color of the wood is now very orange which I do NOT like.Is there anything I can do to tone down the orange color? I would like it to be more grey or brown to look more natural. Any suggestions without re-sanding and starting over? It took a professional painter a full day to apply the TWP. Thanks in advance for your help.

    You cannot tone down the color unfortunately. There is not a grey color in the 1500 Series maybe the Dark Oak color for a brown. Please read this for color tips: http://www.twpstainhelp.com/twp-1500-colors-explained/

    Brian Pellissier:
    What do you recommend for sealing exterior cypress? Also, I want to stain some cypress beams in the interior of my house also. I've read that you have to but a sealer on them first like Bullseye shellac, lightly sand them with steel wool and then apply a stain. What process do you recommend for staining process.

    Thanks
    Brian

    No you cannot apply a shellac first than stain. It will never absorb. In addition you cannot apply shellac on top of the TWP. You can use the 1500 Series on the Cypress with no issues.
