    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.

    Lor, I would just use water to remove the dirt. Any cleaners can be abrasive after the stain has been on there for a year.

    Fred, rough sawn wood can be stained right away. Just one coat.

    Hi - I stained a new redwood deck in San Francisco with California Redwood TWP1500 one year ago. I followed the prep instructions very closely. It turned out great and it still looks good however I would like to give it a VERY mild cleaning just to remove the city dirt and bird droppings - there is no mold or mildew. What product or what homemade solution would be best for this purpose? I really do not want to shorten the life of the existing stain so if that is what would happen if I clean it, then I just won't clean it until it needs another coat of stain. Thx much for the advice.

    I had a rough sawn cedar fence installed August 1st. Can I stain it sometime in mid to late September? Is there a device to determine the amount of moisture in the wood?

    No need to wait if the wood is rough. I would prep the old fence and stain all with the TWP 1500.

    Is the new wood rough or smooth on the fence?

    We moved into a house with 2 sides of the back yard fenced and stained. We are now fencing the rest and want it all to match.
    It is all cedar fencing, we don't know age of fence or stain brand/color that was previously used. Condition seems good. We know we need to strip the previous stain, but do we need to wait to stain the new portion as you would with a deck or can we stain it all as soon as we strip the rest and it dries? Is TWP 1500 our best bet?

    Judith, the stain stripper will remove it.

    A section of my deck has green mold or mildew because the sun never gets to that area. Does that need to be removed before powerwashing with the stain stripper, or will the stain stripper remove it? If it has to be removed ahead of time, do you have or recommend any non-toxic products to remove it?

    Judith, for KY you can use either the 100 or 1500 with similar results. Use the stripper and pressure wash off. Apply brightener when done.

    After seeing the comments below, I guess I need to ask some questions regarding my 16 year old badly cracked deck.
    Does it sound like the TWP 1500 is the best product for me? I live in KY. I'm thinking I should go ahead and use the stain stripper with the power washer - ? Then use the wood brightener before applying the new stain - ? Any help with these questions will be greatly appreciated. I'm a 73 year old lady who knows nothing about deck care!

    Age of wood: 16 years
    Type of wood: treated lumber
    Condition of wood: poor
    Stained previously: most recently (4 years ago) with Cabot
    Description: Wood is badly cracked and stain began peeling a few months after being applied.
    Also - just put new railings on and want to get those stained as soon as the treated lumber allows. Do I use the same product on the rails as on the deck flooring?

    Aaron D Smith, nothing will match the Sikkens color. It is not possible with any brand. Only option is to remove the Sikkens 100% and start over.
