    I am looking for a product to apply to a 20plus year old redwood floor on our deck. It is currently part of a screened in deck that gets some sun exposure from the south. The wood is in good shape, the last application was Pentofin 4-5 years ago. The wood is dull and lifeless, we would like a neutral stain that would bring some of the life back to the wood

    I have a 4 year old pressure treated pine deck.

    It was originally finished with an acrylic product that has started to fail.

    I stripped the old finish (used a chemical stripper, followed with pressure washing, and a light sanding with 60 & 80 grit to de-fir).

    Should I use the deck brightener before staining even through the wood looks good?

    I also noticed that after stirring up my two TWP stain samples(1501 & 1530) they both very quickly (

    I would try to rinse the deck lightly with a pressure washer.

    1. 1 year
    2. PTYP
    3. Great
    4. Y, TWP--of course! Semi Trans 1500
    5. 600sf w/ pergola.

    My question is--now that I have stained my newish deck w/ TWP...there are some areas where the sanding and splash from my incremental staining project is on the wood...I've used a garden hose, but it sort of just pushes it around. Can I pressure wash my deck now that it is stained without doing color damage? The splash is just from water but has mixed sawdust and dirt in it..no stain splash.

    Nanci, if the fence it rough wood you can stain right away with little to no prep. If smooth wood you need to wait. Please read this article:

    I bought some used 2x6 yellow cedar decking to redo my 25 yr old deck. I installed the cedar bottom side up to get the nicer surface up, screwed it down. The decking is really nice quality, very straight grain, only 3 small knots in a 15x15 deck.
    I am sending for 2 samples of your 1500, natural and honeytone, to keep the wood color prevalent. I plan to use restore-a-deck to clean it first, but should i treat the underside of the deck? The deck is only 1-2 feet off the ground. thanks, Stephen

    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).
