    3 month old rough sawn treated pine fence pickets never stained

    How much square foot coverage will I get per gallon?

    Will 1 coat using a pump sprayer suffice or do I need 2?

    What is the recommended application method and what is the lowest temperature tolerance during and the days following application?

    Thanks

    Marty, sorry but there is not a solid stain in TWP. Wood putty does not really work well on outside wood and it does not "stain" with exterior stains like TWP. The only thing you can do is use a filler that is already tinted.

    Hi team - we love the 1500 pecan semi transparent but the wood putty for the nail holes looks terrible beneath it. It is on some old and beautiful heart redwood. Do you either have a) any recommendations for wood putty that looks good with this stain or b) a pecan solid stain? The pecan semi trans is fabulous for every part of the house except for the garage and front doors where there is too much putty.

    Thanks
    Marty

    The Restore A deck Stripper we sell and a pressure washing should remove most of the One Time. Use the RAD Brightener when done.

    Eric, you cannot apply TWP on top of the One Time. It would need to be stripped or removed first. I would prep correctly, brighten the wood and apply the TWP 1500.


    Do you have any suggestions for stripping the One Time?

    I live in the Seattle, Wa. area (Langley on Whidbey Island) and just completed a home with cedar board and batten. It's late in the season to paint now, should I be concerned with weathering if I wait until spring to coat? Based upon our weather pattern, what month in the spring would you recommend I paint?

    17 years
    Redwood
    Good condition, for the most part
    Stained with One Time Wood 5 years ago
    The color of the redwood still looks pretty good, other than some bleaching in the sunny areas. However, there is no water repellance. There is some deterioration of the wood in places, but overall, it is in good shape. The area is shade to part sun. 800 sf of deck

    As long as the TWP as 4 hours to dry in the day it should not be affected if temperatures drop into the 30's at night. You would not want wet stain and have it drop below freezing though.

    Hi,
    I noticed the TWP stain should be applied when the temperature is between 45°-95°. The temperature is getting cooler and I was wondering if it is okay to apply the stain when the temperature is around 50°-55° (during the day), but at night the temperature is around 30°-35°. Will this be okay?

    Clark, use the Gemini Restore Kit and a light pressure washing for the prep before applying the TWP 1500.

    We have a o14 month old pressure treated pine deck that measures roughly 10 by 60 with stairs and railing. The deck is in good condition and is natural never treated. I would like to use TWP 1500 here in Plymouth, Massachusetts. What prepping procedures do you recommend or just apply the stain?

    Robert, you need to remove the Behr which can be difficult. Best to use a deck stain stripper and pressure washer to remove as much as possible, sand the rest if needed, brighten the wood when done.

    Marty Skyrman, I would clean it first and apply the TWP 1500 Clear. It will help prolong the life.[/quote]

    The instructions on the last TWP1500 pail I purchased says one to one solution of water/bleach is okay for cleaning. Is that right or do I need to buy the expensive restore kit?

    Better to use the Gemini Kit. More effective, better results, and better for the wood.

    Ron, wait until Spring and prep with the Gemini Restore Kit.
