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

    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.

    4 years old pressure treated good cond the TWP applied has worn partially off the deck area traffic area's the tops of the rails have fadded off

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

    Jim Shuck:
    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.
