    Jennifer, use a wood brightener and rinse the deck well to remove any sand dust. Use the 1500 Series for this. Clear does not offer UV protection from graying. Use a tinted color if you want to prevent graying.

    19 year od cedar deck. Full sun Southern exposure with small overhang. It has just been power washed then sanded. Does it need anything else before stained and which stain should we use. We have always used a clear stain. I think Cabots or benjamin moore.

    Where do you stand on if you apply wet on wet? I would have to stand on the wet stain to apply the second coat of stain then. Can you stand on the stain within 30 minutes in order to put on the second coat?

    Ron/Darlene, it will dry eventually but it does sound as if it was applied a little too much in those areas. You could try wiping off some of the excess stain with some mineral spirits.

    Yimin,

    Cedartone
    Rustic
    Redwood
    Dark Oak

    They will all give similar UV protection.

    Pj, use the 1500 Series for NY. Apply two light coats wet on wet for best results.

    I have applied TWP 1500 1516 Rustic Brown to my 20'by 12' deck five days ago. The deck wood is 2 by 6 treatd pine about two years old, it is in mostly full sun. The deck was power washed and allowed to dry one week before aplication with no rain. the stain was applied with a brush and is still tacky and wet in some areas and is not drying. Can you advise what to do? Thanks, Ron Kohn

    If we buy the 5 gallon pail, but only use 2 gallon this year. Could we use the remaining stain one year later? How to store the stain properly for one or two years?

    Yimin,

    1. 1500
    2. We only sell oil based stains, no acrylics
    3. As long as all of the Behr is removed you can use an oil based stain like TWP.

    1. We are in NJ. Should I use 100 or 1500 for the deck?
    2. The deck is cedar wood. I read somewhere that said for cedar wood which is naturally agains mildew and insects, it is better to use water based stain such as acrylic. Could you comment on that?
    3. We had Behr semi-transparent on the deck and took it off with strippers and cleaned/brightened using Behr products. Now the wood looks like new, with just some fuzzy feel on the surface. I read somewhere that once you used the water based stain, it is hard to get them all off, and it is hard to switch to a oil based stain like TWP. Could you please give us some advice on this?

    Yimin, 2-3 years for TWP is normal on a deck. If the wood is free of the behr and clean than you are ready to stain.

    Hear TWP is highly rated.

    My Cedar Deck, 6 yeas old. Previously stained with Behr. Now stripped and cleaned/brightened with Behr stripper and cleaner.

    Should I prep the wood again with TWP products such as restore a deck cleaner kit? WHich kit should I use?

    We live in New Jersey. With winter snow, salt to prevent slippery on stairs, and freezing weather. People tell me no matter what stain you use, you will have to re-stain after 2 or 3 years.

    How many years can TWP stain last on our south facing deck?

    Thanks.

    Jason, prep with the Gemini Kit. It might need to be sanded when done since it has grayed a lot. You cannot put a polyurethane finish on outside wood. It will peel. You need a penetrating wood stain like TWP. The 15is what you need to Ohio.

    jeraldine, we do not have any pictures. I would suggest getting a sample. About 4 gallons for 1 coat. Please read this about new decks:

    My deck is at least ten years old, it's 1 x 6 pine decking, wood is solid but very gray, no evidence of stain on the deck itself now, but the deck rails are still stained, so it had a coat sometime. It's about 400 square feet. A Gemini clean and brighten treatment first, and 5 gallons of TWP 1500 is what I would use, if it's available in New York. I'm open to suggestion on product as i haven't used yours before.
