    Cedar deck about 15 years old. Treated w Cabot opaque stain. I have cleaned and sanded deck. Stain areas still remain. Do I still need to strip to use your products? I like to Cape Cod gray in the 100 series but that is not available in the 1500 series. What are my options? I live in PA.

    "Second Request" We stained a deck & open Boat House on Lake Jacksonville, TX with TWP1500 and noticed that some areas have a glossy finish after drying. How do we get rid of the glossy finish?

    I just had a 12 ft x 25 ft deck (treated yellow pine) built 1 month ago. I was wanting to stain it with 1500 series (live in Ohio) #1503 (dark oak). Water no longer beads up (Lumber store told me that it can now be stained) but edges are curling up (temp has been in high 80's and 90's last few weeks with minimal rain). I wanted to get your thoughts. If I do stain now, does it need 1 or 2 coats. Does it need treated with anything prior to staining. Deck has not been used yet. Rails are made of Timber Tech (Black with dark brown spindles) so it will not need to be stained. How many gallons of stain do I need

    I am working on a new deck. Client is very concern about weatherproof and durability of the deck. Since is a new deck with new wood, do we need to stain all 4 side of the 2x before we install the deck? Or we should put 2 coat first before installation and put a final coat after the installation?

    New porch built last Fall; wood is cedar and Southern Pine
    Stained with AMTECO TWP, Shake & Shingle 205 California Cedar
    Only one coat was applied; I would like to get or put a second coat on, but can't find dealer or that product on your web site.

    It is still protecting and still looks good, but water does not "bubble" up like it used to and wood is slightly fading on surfaces exposed to sunlight.

    Is this product TWP 205 water or spirit based? Is it still available or is there a newer compatible product available?
    Is it available locally - Zip Code is 30152, Kennesaw GA (near Marietta GA

    Diane D, TWP 100 and 1500 are both semi-transparent. No need to do the underside. Please read this about new wood:

    Ted Clark, use a stain stripper when pressure washing and use a wood brightener when done. Try the TWP in the Dark Oak or Pecan.

    Mitch, most likely it will be fine once it dries. I would not do anything.

    1) New wood-drying for 1 month in garage, spacers & weights are separating the boards
    2) Clear heart redwood
    3) Pristine condition of wood
    5) 260 sq ft deck in Southwest Oregon

    Is 1 month enough drying time for new wood (it was pretty dry when delivered)? Should I stain the underside and sides before installing since the deck joists are only inches above ground level? Is the TWP 100 a solid vs semi-tranparent? I have heard TWP100 might be better but I want the redwood to show through while having UV & moisture protection.

    Linda,

    Do you still have old stain left on the wood? If so they you should use the Restore A Deck Stripper followed by the RAD Brightener for the prep. If no stain use the Gemini Restore kit for the prep.

    Katharina, either series would work fine for you. Being it is dried out wood, the 1500 might be a little better.

    Lori, you do not want to use too much chemical as it could be abrasive to the stain. A soft push broom would help. With the grain.

    My approx. 10year old Pine deck is approx. 400square feet, mostly full sun. It is cracked and I pressure cleaned it 24 hrs ago. I would like to apply the 1500 series but I am hearing the 100 series is similar?. Can you give me some pointers?

    Hmmm - only water, huh? Bummer - I was hoping there was some very mild detergent solution that would be safe because the city dirt is somewhat oily (mainly car exhaust). If using only water, would it be safe to scrub the deck lightly and, if so, is it better to scrub with the grain or against it? I have heard arguments both ways. Thank you.
