    Jayson Tyler, yes you can mix 1500 colors together to achieve a new color. Make sure to prep with the Gemini Restore Kit.

    Matt, should be the same or maybe a little more. Depends on the prepping and if the wood has dried out.

    If I previously used about 4 gallons of stain on my deck about 4 years ago, will I need about more/less/the same to do it again this year?

    Age of wood - 9 years
    Condition is good
    Previously stained with TWP 500 (Honeytone). Will be using TWP 1500 Honeytone.

    Thank you for your time.

    Matt

    1. 18 mos
    2. Pressure treated pine
    3. partially weathered
    4. no previous stains
    5. 20x14 deck (Staining horizontal decking)


    Can you mix TWP 1500 stains for desired color? I was hoping to darken Pecan with a small amount of Dark Oak to more closely match siding stain (different manufacturer).

    thanks!

    Had a new western red cedar fence put up about a month ago, only 33 linear feet. Have a few questions.

    - I read that WRCedar requires less drying out time. Is that true or should I wait the 4 months?

    - Will 1 gallon be sufficient, or should I get 2?

    - Will any prep work be needed?

    Thanks.

    1. Age of wood is about 2 months old (1 month in newly built deck from new order of pt wood)
    2. Two types: decking is pt pine and railing is cedar.
    3. Condition is very good as it is new. Fresh color still but wood decking is currently shrinking.
    4. No previous stain or cleaner
    5. To treat decking and structure if needed as well as the cedar railing

    Like to know how long to wait for wood to dry and weather before applying the stain (for pt wood and cedar). Pt wood drying/shrinking quickly. 4 hours of direct afternoon sun ( rest shaded or blocked). Located in SE PA.
    Also, what prep in needed.
    Don't know if I need to stain before winter (dec) or after in spring (April). Deck built in early september. Railing ( cedar) mid October.
    Thank you

    Part of the siding is cedar which has never been treated in 20 years. My husband just died and I need a quick fix for this problem. I would like it to last 2 years.

    Buzzman100, yes both colors will fade through the years the same and both show the gain of the wood.

    Jacque:
    Age - new siding, not installed, will stain before installing

    Type - rough sawn pine, 1x12" and 1x4"

    Condition - rough sawn, clean, new

    Previously stained - no

    barn siding

    If rough wood you can stain with 1 coat now. Use the 1500.

    Trying to decide between Natural and Cedar tone for cedar siding that was installed last summer, the cedar siding has begun to fade (whiten). Will both color options lighten same rate due to UV rays and natural elements? Also I would like to see some of the natural grain will both provide it? I have samples and they are very close in color tint. Looking for guidance - Thanks

    Eastwood, best to use a deck cleaner and wood brightener for the prep after sanding. It will help the stain to penetrate deeper into the wood grain.

    I just purchased TWP1500. I have T&G dough fur porch floor. It was put down last fall. Just finished sanding off any cupping and graying from UV. On the can it says to wash with bleach solution before applying. Is it necessary to wash? I vacuumed up all dust.

    RSMackie, TWP is thinner then the Sikkens and can be sprayed and back brushed if desired.
