    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.

    24 yr old deck
    treated 2x6
    few cracks, not bad for age
    SW Deckscape transparent used every two years except last summer when Deckscape semi-trans used. Whole deck is peeling.
    thx for advice

    Need to remove the SW first before using the TWP this can be stripped and or sanded to remove. Once removed, we would suggest the TWP 1500.

    Erich, you can sprayer with a pump sprayer or an electric sprayer. Yes you should back brush after.

    1. 1 year
    2. Western Red Cedar
    3. Very good condition. Starting to get some "graying"
    4. Never been stained
    5. 6 ft. tall privacy fence. 185 ft. total length.

    What is the best way to apply the stain? Can an electric sprayer such as a Wagner Power Painter be used or must it be applied with a pump sprayer? Does it need to be "brushed in" after spraying?

    George Lowe:
    1. Deck bild in April 1991=23 yrs.
    2. Redwood
    3. Darken with age and cracked in various places.
    4. Yes, with a solid redwood stain.
    5. 20'3" wide by 27'3" long.
    Would you recommend TWP 1500, plus 1-kit of Gemini restore-A-Deck?

    George, it is not possible to use TWP on top of a solid stain. You would have to remove the solid stain first by sanding.

    Dan, the wood will not gray for months but best to get this stained within 2 weeks of the prep work.

    I live in upstate NY. Yesterday I completed all my prep work using Your the Restore a Deck product. Everything worked as advertised as my 1 year old PT deck is ready to be stained with your TWP 1500 Cedartone. Now all of a sudden the weather reports have changed and rain is expected tomorrow and a couple of times this and early next week. How long should/can I wait before I have to consider having to re-prep before staining? How long before the wood starts to "gray". Other suggestions?

    Steve, What's the total sq. footage? Need to prep first with Gemini Restore Kit. You can get small sample bottles to test color from our site.

    Elaine, for MA you can only use the TWP 1500 Series. You do need to remove the Behr first before applying the TWP.

    We have installed a Southern Red Pine deck in North Carolina about a year ago. It has never been stained and has weathered just a bit. What should we prep with before staining with TWP?

    thanks, rich
