    deg, strip and brighten with the Restore A Deck products. Not sure what color matches the SW but I would thing the Natural or Honeytone would be close. Solid or TWP for the rails would look nice.

    Cedar Deck, Cedar Spindles, 13 years old
    Used Sherwin Williams Deckscapes Oil Based Toner - Natural Color on Deck every 2 years

    Looking to switch to TWP, What prep do you recommend, and what color of TWP 1500 would be a good match. Also what would be a good recommendation on what to do with the spindles. I have seen commentary that doing them a solid color would look nice.

    Hello,
    We have as new deck made of pressure treated wood. This deck is on the south side of our home surrounding a pool. Is the 1500 product a good choice fr PT wd? How long do we wait before we apply to new PT lumber? Also does your coverage estimate take into account 2 coats?
    Thanks

    I would solid stain the verticals and use the TWP for the floor. Two-toned decks look nice and future maintenance is easier as well.

    Recently I used restore-a-deck two step process to remove the prior Behr Premium Stain on my decking. This is multiple tier decks over 1500 sq ft! After several attempts was able to remove 95% of the floor decking stain but the vertical surfaces is near to impossible to remove it all (short of spending the summer trying to remove it and lots of $$ for more stripper!). With the cleaning i have already done will the TWP 1500 adhere to the verticals? Or, should i just prime and paint the verticals and just stain the horizontals with the TWP? Help!

    Al, the CWF needs to be removed as the TWP will not perform properly if applied on top of it. Darker colors will typically last longer form UV graying/fading. You can order samples on our website.

    Please Specify your recommendations for the this staining project after being pressure washed. We are staining a log home (exterior)and deck (2500sf)in upstate NY. The wood is 28 yr old white cedar in weathered condition (some graying and darkening). It has been stained several times with Flood's CWP-UV cedar tone . We are also wondering if we need to stay with the cedar tone, or if we can go to a slightly darker color (in Semi-transparent) for added color permanence(your recommendation;difficult to determine actual colors on-line).

    Rick, as long as you prep the wood first you can. Best to prep with the Gemini Restore Kit.

    Can you apply TWP 1500 over previous applied TWP 100

    Lis, you must remove the Cabot 100% before applying the TWP. This will need to be sanded off since you said it was a semi-gloss stain.

    marashi1, for newer wood and in Minnesotta we would suggest the 100 Series as it penetrates a little better then the 1500 series.

    Jean, you must remove the Thompsons first by using a stripper and or sand it off. Once removed, stain with the 1500 Series.

    John Donalds, they are both excellent stains and perform about the same. The 100 Series cannot be used in all states though.

    One year old pressure treated wood, never stained or sealed. Sun exposure most of the day in Minnesota.

    Should I use TWP 100 or 1500?

    I would like to know why either one works better.

    Thanks,
