    I've prepped and cleaned my new deck which has weathered for about 11 months. The weather is supposed to be decent this weekend, and I'd like to get the stain applied before dirty treas (cotton wood and box elder) dirty up the deck. However, the forecast is calling for 40% chance of rain 30-48 hours after I plan to apply the stain (jumps to 80% chance close to the 48 hour window). Should I wait until there is a longer dry spell or is that enough time to put on the recommended 1 coat to a new deck? The instructions call for a 48 hour window, but your site has indicated 12 hours is enough time.

    We have an approximately 17-year-old cedar porch previously stained with Sikkens Cetol Deck Finish. The wood is not perfect but is in fair to good condition. I lightly sanded the peeling spots and would like to protect it with your TWP 1500. Any suggestions or tips? I can't find a dealer in the area so I guess I'll need to order. Thanks!

    Monika, wood filler will not work on outside wood. For the DC area, look at the TWP 1500 Series.

    I've been researching and found your product to be the best. I have a 20-25 year old deck. It's not in the best condition with serious greying, splintering, popped nails, etc. Can I use wood putty to fill in the splits and splinters? I can't affort a new deck now. I just had it power washed yesterday. Which of your products will would be best to use? I live in the DC area. Please help!

    Doug, I highly doubt you can apply Cedarcide on top of TWP. I would ask them but it sounds like it will not work.

    Tree, it is a semi-transparent. Please read this about new wood: http://www.twpstainhelp.com/prepping-new-wood-for-twp-stains/

    Need to protect new deck built with pressure treated lumber in Penna. Location is in the woods so algae/moss is a factor. How soon can I use TWP 1500 on the new deck and will I still need to clean it? Is TWP 1500 a semitransparent or solid stain? Or is it closer to a toner? I would like the protectant to be as close to clear as possible.

    Hi,
    I like the samples you sent. Ready to stain my treated pine 8' long x 6' high prefab (cheap) privacy fence, just prior to sealing with Cedarcide.
    My goal is to spray your product on, then immediately go over it with cedarcide....least amount of work with longest time before being forced to re-seal. Any thoughts? Thanks.

    Leon, prep first with the Gemini Restore Kit. Stain with 1 coat since it is newer of the 1500 Series.

    auty, you will need to remove all of the old coatings for the TWP to work correctly. Use a stain stripper and or sanding for this. Brighten the wood when done. Use the 1500 Series for this.

    Jim, TWP does not come in a solid stain. Only semi-transparent. You should prep with the Gemini Restore Kit after sanding. Two light coats wet on wet and you would need about 10-12 gallons for 1185 sq. feet. We can ship to you from this website.

    My home is in San Diego Ca, I have a large exterior wood deck about 10 years old. My contractor has just sanded it down to the bare wood removing an industrial grade material that was rolled on with a heavy rough coat. That product almost right after being applied as per the instructions began to develop blisters throughout the deck. That resulted in a settlement from the manufacturer. I have done a lot of research and your product seems to be the best. The wood is in good shape and the prep is thorough. Should we prime it before putting down TWP 1500, how many coats, price? I have approx 1185 sq ft to cover. I'm thinking a solid stain given prior product on the deck. And, finally where can I buy in the San Diego area.
    Thanks

    I A Rumble, you should not apply TWP on top of another brand of gray stain. You would want to remove it first by stripping or sanding the wood. Once done, apply wood brightener. Stain with the 1500 after the prep. We sell online.

    Chuck, you cannot apply a spar varnish on top of TWP.
