    PaulinAurtin, TWP is a semi-transparent stain so it never looks like a paint. TWP 100 but please read this article:

    I just built a cedar deck in Austin Texas. Our summers are brutal with most days reaching the high 90's or even 100+ degrees. Winters are mild. My deck gets direct sun for most of the day. I would like the deck to have an enhanced cedar look...but still show the natural wood. What stain do you recommend which holds up well to UV as well heat but doesn't look like paint? Thanks, Paul

    RonJBell, yes you need tint if you want UV correction. Use the TWP 1500 for this. It has all you need.

    I have a new, unassembled cedar pergola kit. I want to preserve the natural color and structural integrity of the cedar. Is it true that sealers have to have dyes/pigments in order to prevent UV discoloration to gray? Should the product have silicon, oil, pigments, dyes, insecticides, fungicides, etc. What do you recommend?

    Chase, they last about the same. The 1500 has a higher solid content so it may give a little better UV protection.

    If I am in Minnesota looking at staining new wood, what product would you recommend the 100 or 1500 series. I am not sure I understand the difference between the two products other than VOC rating. Does the 100 hold up better?

    Terry Glenn, you can only use the 1500 for CA. It does stain and protect the wood.

    Lou, after sanding prep with the Gemini Restore Kit to "open" the grain of the wood so the stain will absorb better.

    I'm about to stain a covered porch deck that is composed of tongue/groove cypress, most of which is over 50 years old, some of which is brand new. the entire surface is being hand sanded with an orbital sander. I was considering using TWP 1503. What do you suggest?

    Jim Fleming, TWP would not be suggested for a Mahogany door.

    I need to refinish the exterior front door on my home. The door is mahogany and mahogany veneer. It is 8.5 years old. The top half is in good shape but the lower half is severely sun damaged. I have totally removed all the previous stain and sealer. The brand of the previous stain is unknown. Can either TWP 100 or TWP 1500 be used to stain and protect the door?
    Thanks
    Jim

    Chase, no need to stain the undersides. Please read this info on new decks:

    I am installing a new cedar deck. I am wondering the proper preparation for the deck, before applying the stain. Do I need to wait a month (or how long) after the deck is assembled to apply the stain? Does it help to apply the stain the underside of the boards? I live in minnesota, so the harsh winters will likely have the most effect on the deck/stain.

    Our deck is approaching 1 month old. It is pressure treated pine. So, wood is new and in great condition.

    Any advice on staining would be appreciated!

    The Gemini Restore Kit will help remove the graying and mold. Since it has been 8 months you may need to sand a lightly after the prepping.

    8 months since installation

    Cypress

    good condition, but starting to grey

    no previous staining

    exterior deck,pergola/trellis, entry porch, columns and balcony

    I've applied a sample of the TWP 1500 and liked the way it finished. Will the restoration kit help with the greying that has started? We also started to have mold due to the considerable rain & clouds in the North Carolina area where the house is located.

    kevin f, please read this about the new deck: http://www.twpstainhelp.com/prepping-new-wood-for-twp-stains/

    For the older section, you should strip an brighten with the Restore A deck Stripper and brightener.
