    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.

    My deck is approximately 9-10 years old. I have previously re-coated it by stripping it with a stain stripper purchased at Home Depot and re-coating it with Behr semi-solid stain with is water soluble product. I not sure if it is an acrylic stain. 1st time it lasted about 2 years and the second last

    I am planning to use the 1500 redwood on a new redwood deck. Do you recommend one or two coats? and how long in between?

    Ron Darling, what is the total sq. footage and are you doing both sides? It can be applied with a high quality pump sprayer.

    John Mack,

    You mist remove all of the old stain before switching and it will not be easy with that much of a build up. Once removed you should use the TWP 1500 Series.

What nozzle should I buy for my airless sprayer?

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