    Hi,
    Building a pergola. Will treat it when finished. Using pressure treated pine. There are some greenish patches and some surface dirt on some boards. What prep should be done to the wood and how long should I wait to treat after built?
    Thanks-
    Marlin

    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:

    Existing deck:
    Cedar, 4 yrs., Good Condition.
    Lower deck = 500 SqFt
    Stairs w/landing = 100 SqFt
    Upper deck = 240 SqFt.
    Total = 840 SqFt.
    Handrail caps and deck surface will be done only. (not stiles and post they are painted white)
    Currently has Behr Cedar Naturaltone 501
    Would like to strip/brighten/stain with TWP 1500 Ceader. Best process recommended, and do I need to protect all railings upper and lower with plastic or will care and pre-rinsing do the job?

    Strip off as much as you can of the Behr with the RAD Stripper. Sand off the rest. Brighten all when done. Stripper does not remove the white paint. Once prepped you can stain a few days later with the TWP 1500.

    I applied TWP 1500 to my 8 year old deck yesterday (never been treated before). I used the two coat wet on wet method. I finished around 4:00PM and at around midnight we got hit with heavy rain. The deck looked dry a few hours after staining it and the rain is pooled on the deck this morning. IS it safe to say everything is fine?

    Mot likely nothing is wrong. Let dry for a couple of days and check.

    I have a new barn with vertical rough sawn cypress siding.
    What would you recommend as a sealer that would protect but not change the natural color of the cypress?
    Thanks,

    If you go clear than you will not have UV protection from graying. Must have a tint if you want to retain color. Please read this about colors: http://www.twpstainhelp.com/twp-1500-colors-explained/

    Will your 1500 stain work well over a deck that was stained with a water based stain before?

    Stafford:
    I have a redwood fence (most likely Pacific redwood) that is between 8-12 months old. We pressure washed the inside and stained it with the California Redwood TWP 1500. It looks good, but the color is more golden/orange than I had hoped. It was hard to tell with the sample since it didn't cover very much. I think the Redwood color is too red, based on the sample. Are any of the other colors, like Pecan or Cedartone somewhere in between? I think a color in the middle of California Redwood and Redwood would be what I'm looking for. I'm not sure if the stains can be mixed or not.

    Yes you can mix two colors of the TWP together.
