    Can the 1500 be applied with a pump up type sprayer?

    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?

    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/

    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.

    Wood is 1 year old. I was told to let it season.

    Cedar

    Good

    no stain has been used.

    We used trexx for screened deck. I want to use Dark walnut so do I need to use wood brightner? since it will be covered with dark stain.

    I think I only need two gallons. How long does the stain last if I buy a 5gallon pale?

    Thanks, Rex

    After our house was built, we waited 2 years to stain the deck. We cleaned it, pressure washed it, waited a couple days, and used a Behr stain, 2 coats. It lasted a year. We don't want to make a mistake this time.
    It's is treated fir, now 4 years old. Old stain is almost peeled off.
    How do we rid of the left over paint? Pressure wash or chemical treatment? Then please advise with the next steps we should take. Thanks.

    D and S, chemical stripper and pressure washing to remove the Behr. You may need to sand as well. Once removed, stain with the 1500 Series.

    So 1500 clear is to be used by itself or mixed with another 1500 stain. What is the effect of mixing it? Does it just affect the color/tone?

    Is there value in applying the 1500 clear as a topcoat over one of the other 1500 products (value as in appearance, protection, etc.)?[/quote]
    No value and actually could create issues.

    Jeff Viehmeyer:
    I had a 5 gal bucket of your twp 100. I used up the 5 gal bucket on my fence and had to buy 7 more gallons. The original 5 gallon bucket may have been 3-4 years old in cedartone. The new twp 100 is probably 2 shades lighter than the older twp 100. Now I have 2 different colored fence. How can the shade change that much and what do I do now to get my fence to match? I have always use twp but that will change after my recent experience. Fence looks awful.

    Jeff, it is the shelf life of the product that most likely caused this. You were far outside it.

    Tom N.:
    I had my deck stained with TWC California Cedar 3 years ago. I washed deck and still see heavier paint strokes from the original application. Do I have to strip the surface again, or just apply TWC 1500 right over the remaining stain? The wood is 10 years old, 431 sq. ft.

    If the old coating of TWP is uneven than you should strip it off and brighten the wood for the prep.

    Jim Martin:
    My deck is roughly 900 sq ft with 13 steps 4' wide. The wood is 20 years old and in pretty good shape. I previously used Cabot Australian Wood Oil and Olympic stain. Cabot didn't last and Olympic wouldn't dry. 240 sq ft is covered and the rest is open. I live in NE Kentucky. I just finished cleaning the entire deck with Krud Cutter deck cleaner and a power washer. What do you suggest for staining this deck? Thanks - Jim

    Jim, you need to remove the old coatings to use TWP correctly. Did the cleaner remove? If not than you need to strip off. Use 1500 Series for this.
