    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?

    Scott, if the wood is rough sawn you are ready to stain with no prep. Apply two light coats "wet on wet" of the TWP 1500 Series.

    I have an 18 year old 4,000 sq ft boat dock in full sun exposure with no shade, live in Northern Virginia. I just power washed the dock and looking for a good stain. I've used Thompsons, BEHR and Sikkens. I can't seem to find a local TWP dealer. What deck stain would you recommend, where can I get it and how best is it applied, brush, roller or spray? Need it fairly quickly as I want to stain the dock this weekend, the dock was just power washed and it is drying out now. Weather will be 56-62 degrees this Friday, Sat and Sunday.

    Dale, you let the rain water dry off then wipe the spots with a wet rag? It may just be mineral deposits from the rain water.

    Lee, you should wait about 4 months then clean and prep the cedar with the Gemini Restore Kit. It will wipe off the railings (when wet) but it will not wipe off the composite.

    Tom, let it dry for 48 hours after a rain before applying the TWP. Stain pad like these are better:

    Tom, yes you should be okay but best to start early in the day so the stain has time in the afternoon to dry into the wood. You do not want to finish at dusk with and have it freeze overnight.

    I wanted to add to my question about temperature but didn't see a way to edit my post....how soon after a rain is it safe to apply this?

    I plan to apply with a brush, long handled semi stiff bristled car wash type of brushed if that seems acceptable.

    Thanks.

    I have a pressure treated deck, about 8 years old that's been previously stained by a box store available stain (can't recall which). Very little of the stain remained after I cleaned it with some cleaner, which I can't recall the name of (ordered online, not box store), and a scrub brush and pressure washer.

    My question is, I have daytime highs in the low 50's right now (sometimes higher) and evenings usually about 35-40 (some warmer)....is this a safe temp range to use TWP1500?

    I'd really like to get this done before winter arrives.

    Thanks.

    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.
