    ania, I would use the Gemini Restore Kit to clean and brighten the wood for the prep. About 2-3 gallons of stain.

    Tim Fox, use the Gemini Restore Kit for the prep before applying the TWP 1500 Series. Any color will work.

    Cedar pergola on a pressure treated deck. Both 1 year old (cedar is turning grey). No previous staining. Both very good condition. Gets full sun most of the day. Would like to renew cedar color and stain deck and pergola the same color.

    Brand new good quality cedar floor boards and stairs, cedar tung and groove wall and ceiling and rough hewn cedar exterior screened in porch, deck and stairs. No previous staining. 3weeks since it was put up. No rain in that time 70-95 degree temps. screens are not in yet. When and with what should we stain? What parts if any need sanding or cleaning? What should we use to do that. What is the best to apply it with. How many gallons do we need? the porch is 24x14 with a 12foot high ceiling. Only one wall is wood the rest is screen. deck is 6x7 and 10 stairs going down. Thanks

    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.
