    Paula, if the wood is free of old coatings then use the Gemini Restore Kit to prep the wood with a light pressure washing. Stain with the TWP 1500 Series.

    I see that the 1500 covers approximately 150-200 sq ft. Is this for one coat or two? Also, what type of brush do you recommend? My deck is about 10X12 with railings.

    Thanks

    Our deck is 26 yrs old and not in the best of shape. We don't want to replace yet. What would you suggest to get us thru a couple more years? Thank you for your help.

    Craig, you should be okay to stain now. Best to not have rain for 12 hours after the staining to be on the safe side. It may be okay if it takes rain sooner but it could be risky.

    BBJ, if it looks fine and it dries okay then there should be nothing to worry about.

    I am going to brush TWP 101 Cedartone on a cedar deck. The deck has been scrubbed with Simple Green and rinsed off with a sponge and clean water, then a heavy rain (no powerwash). It will have been 36 hours since the rain. Is that enough drying time? After brushing on the TWP, how long does it need to dry before being rained on? Thank you.

    Hello,
    I am staining a deck in Ohio with the cedar-tone 1500. Everything was going fine, but an unforcasted thunderstorm popped up about 2hrs after applying the product to a small portion of the deck and stairs.
    What, if anything will I need to do to the effected area? It still looks fine, but I am worried that it may create a problem down the road.

    Scraig1969, prep with the Gemini Restore Kit to help open up the wood for the TWP 1500 before applying the stain.

    We had inexperienced flooring company sand and stain our cedar decking with TWP 1500. They put 1 coat on one day and stopped due to weather. Cam back 2 days later and applied 2 coats wet on wet. It has been 3 days, and it is still sticky in some areas, so we have stayed off of it. Will it eventually dry out on it's own?

    Sandra, prep with the Gemini Restore kit if there is not an old stain. Once prepped, let the wood dry for a couple of days. Apply two coats of the TWP 1500.

    Mollie, yes you should clean first and you can spray the TWP but you will need to back brush for uniformity.

    Pressure-treated board (pine?) (four board) fence with pressure treated 4x4 posts was installed one year ago, still retaining most of its original tan color. No stain yet. Do I really have to clean it before staining? Does your TWP 1500 apply well with a sprayer? (I would back brush.)

    Bill, yes you can buy samples from our website. You cannot out TWP on top of the Thompson's. 2 gallons should be enough.

    We recently had a new deck built in our back yard. It was made from redwood and is about three weeks old. I would like to use your 1500 product in clear. How long before and can apply it?

    Thank you.
