    I am getting ready to install some rough cut douglas fir. Par will be a fence in weather. Part will be wainscoting a porch, outside but under cover, part will be the porch ceiling and part will be trimming out an interior of a shop. I am looking for suggestions for preserving my wood. Ideally, I'd like the same color for all applications. Please specify whether or not I want an oil or water based product, especially for the wood exposed to weather (the fence.)

    Thanks, Mark.

    We only sell the TWP in oil based. Look at the TWP 1500 Series for all. It is a semi-transparent stain that soaks into the wood grain.

    Age of wood--4-6 years
    pressure treated pine?
    Lots of sun, Splitting in places, Suspect previous owners stained too early in order to sell--Stain started peeling within months of moving in--underside like new but unstained
    Behr Cedartone, I think
    Full Sun, humidity in Maryland summers, Snow and ice in winter, some dark areas, railings are splitting
    Attempting to get a deck repair company to do this the right way--it is too big a job for me--They have agreed to let me buy the stain, now trying to get the prep right.

    For the prep, the Behr needs to be removed 100%. That will require stripping, pressure washing and possibly sanding. After removal, brighten the wood.

    Can you tell me how long a shaken/stirred gallon of TWP will stay mixed before recommending shaking/stirring again?
    Thanks.

    If you are applying the stain, remix every 30 minutes or so should be okay.

    I have a 12 yr old pressure treated deck that has several applications of Flood oil base stain. The deck has been power washed. will TWP 1500 work on the power washed surface or do I need to do something additional.

    The Flood will need to be removed fully. Strip or sand to remove.

    Looking to protect vertical 1x10" board and batten siding. Material is eastern white pine. Age of wood is a approx. three months. It is in very good condition and has not been stained previously.

    Use the 1500 Series. If rough cut, you can stain now.

    I am buying a cedar house that was stained using the TWP 200 series. It is due to be restained. I am told a latex based stain is best. Is TWP a latex paint? also should a clear coat be applied over the stain color?

    TWP is not a latex based stain but oil-based. It is not possible or needed to apply a clear coat over top.

    I am restoring a redwood bench for our pier. I have been sanding for two weeks and it is finally ready to go. I have TWP 1500 redwood (wow that's dark) I am wondering if I can put anything over the TWP to help fill in some surface topography and possible splinters? How many coats am I supposed to put on this bench? This is a very old bench and I have sanded it for 2 weeks and probably could sand for 2 more but tomorrow I stain.

    No, it is not possible to top coat TWP. Appy 1-2 coats or as much as the wood allows the stain to absorb. TWP needs to soak into the wood grain 100%

    I built a horizontal plank fence using western red cedar 6 weeks ago. I want to seal/stain it with a semi-transparent stain to keep guard against UV decay and to keep the reddish hues visible. Do you recommend I use the 100, 200, or 1500 series? Thanks!

    The 1500 Series. See this about new wood and TWP:
