    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.

    We have a house with rough saw cedar on the lower portion of the house that has several coats of Sikkens over 30 years since built. New 2nd story addition is tongue and groove cedar that is pretty smooth milled finish. I am trying to find a color for 2nd story new siding to match the old Sikkens finish on the lowel level. The Sikkens has a lot of pigment build-up so it is drak brown in most places with hints of orange glow in other light areas. Darkbrown/orange. I don't want to use Sikkens because they switched their product. Do you have something that would match that color? THe new siding won't absorb as much product because of the smoother finish. I want something that penetrates so that it doesn't peel later, it has to soke in. Let me know what you can do. Thanks, Aaron Smith

    I live in central Florida and just had a new boathouse and dock walkway built from pressure treated lumber. Construction was completed 2 weeks ago after 3 weeks of work.
    Which of the TWP products would be the best choice to protect the wood? How long should I wait prior to application? Which product would keep the current appearance of the wood as far as color is concerned?
    Thanks,
    Paul

    Curtis L, remove the Behr first before proceeding with the TWP. Behr is not easy to remove. Will need to be stripped a few times and possibly even sanded some.

    LDC, I am sorry but the 1500 Series does not come in a gray and the 100 Series cannot be shipped or sold there.

    1. Less than 5 years old.
    2. Pine wood
    3. Overall good condition, however the decking has a considerable amount of cracking along the grain lines.
    4. Was stained about a year ago with Behr Weather proofing wood finish, and it looks terrible.
    5. The deck is in a full sun area.

    Devin, you can use the 1511 for this. All TWP colors will enhance the natural wood colors. If the wood is rough you can stain now. If smooth you should wait a couple of more months.

    Wood is CA redwood, con-hart, 6' fence (pickets), rough cut, 260 linear feet, and has been up 4 weeks. Still has it's color (originally pink, but now orangy red), and I want to preserve that as long as possible. Is 1511 the right preservative? I plan to pressure wash, dry 2 days, and spray 1511 on with my Graco ProX7 sprayer. Nozzle recommendations? Thanks!

    Jason, clean and brighten the wood first. If the wood is new it should dry 4+ months.
