    Age of wood 13-years
    PT pine
    Condition is good
    Previously stained with Sikens Cetol DEK
    Wood deck with rails, stairs, and pergala type room

    I'm thinking about using TWP 1500 vs. Sikens. Do I have to strip the old Sikens off? Any guidance is appreciated.

    Yes it is best to remove the Sikkens before switching to TWP. This allows the 1500 Series to soak deep into the wood grain.

    I just sent away for two of your samples. My deck will need only about 2 gallons. I know it wouldn't be guaranteed, but if I bought a 5 gallon container and stored the remainder in my basement (unfinished basement but does not get cold in winter, no lower than 50 degrees), do you think it would be okay to use for maintenance coat in one to two years? I know it's not guaranteed, but in your experience... Thanks, Wendy

    Just the RAD Stripper and Brightener. Yes you have to back brush after spraying to get a consistent application and appearance.

    25 years
    pt pine
    "Floor" of deck is greenish, verticals and small protected areas (under welcome mats, for instance) still have Behr semi-transparent acrylic from 2 years ago.
    Most of deck just needs cleaning, parts need stripping, do I need both RAD products? Also, if I apply TWP 1500 with generic garden pump sprayer, do I need to go over it after with a brush to smooth it?
    Thanks.

    John, yes the clear allows the wood to gray naturally.

    We are planninh to install 5/4 x 8" cedar as a siding. We want to allow the cedar to gray but also want to presserve it. Will your 1500 clear allow the cedar to age?
    Thanks,John

    You cannot apply TWP on top of the Penofin. Use the Restore A deck stripper and pressure washing to remove first. Apply Restore A deck Brightener when done. Use the TWP 100 Series for CO.

    1. Approx 15yr old deck
    2. Cedar
    3. Fair condition. Small cracks in a number of places.
    4. Penofin (siera color) every year or two. Lasted stained a year ago, but in good condition. Recently pressure-washed.
    5. Approx 600sqft deck, facing East (parts get sun virtually all day). In Denver, so intense sun, low humidity & high temps are an issue in summer; snow & low temps in winter.

    Have always used penofin. Was looking at TWP for a change. Not sure whether 100 or 1500 would be better; whether TWP can be applied over penofin; or what prep-work might be required beyond the annual pressure washing & deck cleaner.

    Thanks!

    Daniel, use the Restore A Deck Stripper to remove the old coating and the RAD Brightener when done. This will prep it for a new coating of the TWP.
