    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

    Denny, max 95 and min 45.

    Dry times varies on the wood and temps. Anywhere form 4 hours to 12 hours is normal.

    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.

    Just installed new redwood deck and trellis (December 13 finished). I am understanding now that I should wait to stain it. How long? I live in Oakland, California so no snow and rain from (good question this year) December thru March, maybe some in April. Also, could you provide detailed preparation steps? I also read somewhere that no matter what a new deck should be cleaned right away. Is this true? If so, with what? What would you do now for over the winter - anything? Thanks so much.

    Suezee, yes you should apply two coats wet on wet. Never put a polyurethane on outside wood. See here for more info:

    James E, use the TWP 1500 Series for the fence. 2 light coats wet on wet are best. Coverage is about 150 sq. feet per gallon for the first coats and 200-300 for the second coat.

    Thank you. I assume the prep on the teak furniture is a light sanding? Or would I use some of the restor-a-deck cleaners?

    prattcj, you should be able to apply to the teak as long as you prep it correctly first. Just one coat.

    Hi - I bought a 5 gallon of the TWP 1500 this summer. Worked great on my deck. I was wondering if I could apply to teak outdoor furniture? The furniture set is about 6 years old and in decent shape. I did use a teak oil previously.

    George, prep first with the Gemini Restore Kit and stain with the 1500 Series for the older wood. Two coats "wet on wet".

    John E, best to prep with the Gemini Restore Kit and a light pressure wash. Sand lightly if needed with 60 grit paper. Stain with the 1500 Series.

    I have [b]vertical[/b] support framing beam ~30' logs in a home, with splitting and extensive sun damage. These support beams have full west sun exposure and appear to have not been treated with anything for several years maybe since original construction since These logs are approximately 30' tall. The home is 1993 vintage.
    What would be the best preparation and treatment for these logs?
