    Dave, strip and brighten the deck for the prep. Try the TWP 1500 Series for this. Nothing though can stop chlorine from eventually breaking down the stain.

    I have a cedar deck that faces towards the west and we use it to get in and out of our above ground pool (chlorinated). I have Sikens natural stain on it but only lassted 2months - that was 3 years ago. Most of the stain has worn, peeled off and deck is grey. Will your product last through sunlight and pool water? What are your steps to fix the deck? I like a natural transparent stain to show the grain of the wood. Thanks.

    DianeK, yes on everything except the coverage. More like 6-7 gallons for rough wood and one coat.

    I just installed rough-cut cedar fencing in my south-facing, inland Southern California lot. Am looking to retain (or come close to) the natural cedar color while maximizing UV protection and minimizing future maintenance.

    Is the following correct?
    One coat of 1500 natural or honeytone (I'll order samples).
    Can apply now (ie no aging necessary) using stain pad or sprayer and back wiping.

    I have approx. 900 sq ft to cover, so plan to purchase a 5 gallons.

    Fran, You can remove most semi-transparent stain with the Restore A Deck Stripper

    Would your answer change if the stain was semi transparent?

    Fran, you cannot apply TWP on an opaque stain and stain stripper will not remove an opaque stain. You will need to sand it all off for the prep. The 1500 does not come in a gray color.

    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?
