    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.

    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

    Could you please tell me the sequence of pigment level among these stains? Trying to select one that we like but also have more pigment for UV protection.

    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?
