    Yes you can return. Please review our refund policy at the bottom. For 1000 sq. feet and 2 coats you should have easily used 8-10 gallons.

    Midwest Cedar Deck:
    1) Age of Wood - About 12 years old

    2) Type of Wood - Western Red Cedar

    3) Condition of wood - Good, freshly sanded all surfaces to bare wood

    4) Previously stained using Flood CWF-UV about 3 years ago.

    5) Deck is about 700 sqft. Total about 1000 sqft with railing and skirt. All surfaces had weathered to just about bare wood, so all surfaces were sanded to bare wood to remove any remaining stain and weathering.

    Will 5 gallons be enough to stain this deck?


    Finished staining the deck this past weekend with TWP 1501 Stain. Very happy with the result! However, I used only about 4 gallons to put 2 coats (wet-on-wet) on all surfaces (horizontal and vertical). The recommendation I got from this website was to get 10 gallons, so I now have an unopened 5 gallon leftover. Can this be returned?

    1.) Less than 10 years
    2.) SPIB No. 2 Pine
    3.) Good
    4.) Yes, within the last 3-5 years with some kind of crappy REDwood semi-tran. stain.
    5.) Aprox. 400 sq. ft. horizontal, railings w/ 25-30 spindles.

    Would like to HD-80 strip, sand where needed, wood brighten, and use TWP 1500 Dark Oak or Rustic... is it ok to jump to that kind of color difference from a pretty redwood finish to something darker like dark oak or rustic?

    Steven, you can order right from our website for shipment. For 1500 feet you would need roughly 15 gallons for the two coats of TWP.

    Jeffrey, you would need to remove the previous stain first if you want to switch to TWP. Please read this:

    mda, it would be best to strip the cetol first then brighten the wood. Use the 1500 Series for this.

    Diane G, you cannot use TWP on top of another stain. The CWF should be removed first.

    I currently have cedar siding about 5 years old. We stained the siding with Flood stain transparent. We will need to restain the entire house and railings. With this product work over the other stain and can I get this in New York State?
