    Rick, best to prep with the Gemini Restore Kit before staining. Caulk does not work for outside wood and would not blend or be covered by the TWP. Best to just leave the splits alone as this is normal with outside wood.

    I have brand new pressure treated pine deck installed in June 2013 that is soon to be 12 months old. The wood is in good condition and I am letting it age for 12 months before staining in June 2014. The deck is in southwest Ohio, faces west, and is in the sun for 12 hours a day. Winters are moderately severe. What do you recommend for deck cleaning, deck brightening, and deck staining for maximum protection and maximum longevity? I have read that semitransparent penetrating oil stains are best. We were thinking of TWP 1500.
    Also, some good condition boards have a longitudinal split for part of the length. Do you have a recommendation for repair? I have used silicone calk on past decks that seemend to perform well.

    Winter cut Tulip Poplar air drying about 4 weeks, will be used as roof beams and roof decking. What % moisture does it need to achieve and at what temperature can I apply it? I plan on staining it with TWP 1500 before assembling.

    Kristin, it is not possible to get the two wood species to match. I would get a few samples and test to see if you can get it close.

    I am trying to find the right color for my front door. My cypress posts are TWP dark oak, however my door is spanish cedar so the colors will not match. Do you have a formula of different TWP stains I can use to get the dark oak color to match on cypress and spanish cedar? I think I will need to go with the black walnut.
    Any suggestions?

    I am building a new deck porch on my home. I have constructed the base with treated lumber and then purchased some western red cedar boards to cover it. The cedar was recently milled and has not been treated in anyway. I would like to maintain the natural color of the cedar. What do you recommend for this and should I put the boards on then treat them or pretreat them. I live in the Panhandle of Texas. Thank you.

    Can 1500 be used on new interior fir or hemlock trim, including wood clad (on the inside) doors and windows? Any problems with using 1500 in this way?

    Bill, you would need to remove the old ocating first with a stain stripper. You may also need to sand some. Basically all of the old stain needs to be removed before TWP can be applied. TWP is a penetrating stain. It does not fill cracks.

    I want to restore a deck, approximately 700 sq feet, at a beach house. The wood is pressure treated and approximately 12 to 15 years old. Some of the boards need to be replaced and some are cracked slightly. The deck was previously stained with a dark stain (possibly Home Depot brand)about 5 years ago. I would like to stain it gray, but any color would really do. Also will any of this seal or fill the cracks. The deck gets a lot of sun on a daily basis.

    Thanks

    What are min and max temps for applying 1500 stain and how long does it take to dry under those conditions?

    Thanks

    David, for Indiana you need to use the TWP 1500 Series. Sanding reduces the stain's ability to penetrate and is not advised.

    I have some White Oak Deck furniture I built 3 years ago. I originally treated it with a product called Mono-Coat which did not hold up. The following year I cleaned and sanded all the items, and I used the Mono-Coat again since they told me the process needed more time to soak in. This did not work again. This year I cleaned, applied pure bleach, sanded and applied Pure Tung oil. Again the no success. The biggest problem I have is MOLD! After a month or so outside, NW Indiana, I get mold spots all over the furniture. I was told your product would prevent this and give me more protection. Please advise me as to what TWP product I should use.
