    Sarah, any color will work. I would highly suggest getting some samples to test first.

    I'm trying to choose a color in the TWP 1500 series for a weathered set of stairs with a small deck at the top (pressure treated pine). The stairs look to be several years old and are in decent shape, and have not been previously stained or painted. My home sits adjacent to the stairs, and has white vinyl siding with red shutters - any suggestions on color?

    Lauren, you will have to redo every 2-3 years but it should perform better then the Super Deck when it comes to UV protection and overall water protection. Unfortunately nothing will stop heavy wearing as you will eventually wear away the wood and the stain that had absorbed into the wood.

    Ines, you should be fine as long as you apply during the day with the temps are above 45 and it has a few hours to dry before night comes.

    Live in MN. Temps are now getting down to 40's at night. Need to sand, strip, remove old stain and try your TWP1500 natural color perhaps. Should I wait till spring with cooler temps ? How long does two coats take to dry ?

    I have a cedar deck that is 25+ years old. Previously we used super deck stain and it worked well. The past 4 years the deck has become our main entrance into the house and the super deck just doesn't hold up to the traffic. Would your stain be a better fit for my application? We also live in the northern part of SD. How does your product hold up to our summers and winters and how long will the stain normally last before we have to reapply

    Michael, use the 1500 Series for this. Two coats wet on wet for this older deck.

    Greetings. I have a pressure treated southern pine deck which has been neglected (by me) for 15. The wood is weather beaten and cracked in places. I used to put wood preservative on it periodically - Cuprinol.
    It has never been stained. I am now in the process of cleaning the deck with a power washer to remove dirt, grit and mold. I will also sand and expect to get the deck down to almost original wood. What should I use - I have read your reviews and you are rated No. 1. We live in a harsh climate - Central Vermont where we experience all extremes. It is now mid-September.

    Thank you.

    I have a 7 yr old redwood deck that was previously stained. I sanded the entire deck with 40 grit sandpaper so the wood looks new but is not baby bottom smooth. Should I go with the 2 coats (wet on wet) or should 1 be OK? Any other tips as I am not sure if this situation falls under "new" deck or not? Thanks

    We just installed a new pressure treated pine deck. I understand we should wait 4-12 months to stain so the wood will accept the stain better. Is the 100 or the 1500 series recommended for North Carolina? What is the best way to tell if it is ready to stain?

    Zion, no you cannot apply TWP or any brand on top of Behr. You must remove the Behr first.

    Hi I was wondering if this product can be used to stain over a bear stain product.
