    Renee,
    Thought I'd chime in because your note was very similar to my experience. I tested RB on pressure treated and also felt it was too Red, but Dark Oak was just too dark for me. I then tested a mixture of 3 parts RB and one part Dark Oak and I really like the color. Ultimately that is what I am going to go with once I can find a break in the rainy weather to apply it. You can mix colors of the 1500 series, I've seen others ask the same question on here. But I wouldn't apply one over the other, simply get a big bucket and mix them together and stir it up real good before applying.

    Try testing different combos like 2 parts RB to 1 part Dark Oak. Sincd you dont have lot of sample supply, all you need is a small measuring medicine cup that measure in ML or a tablespoon. Simply mix 2 or 3 tablespoons of RB with 1 tablespoon of dark oak and test that with 2 coats.

    Good luck.

    I have a 750 sf pine deck I just stripped and cleaned with your Gemini products. (Very effective products, by the way) After sampling your 1516 Rustic Brown and 1503 Dark Oak, I'm wishing you offered a color a little less red than the RB, yet a little redder than the DO to better blend with the color of my log siding. The perfect color actually came up when I applied the Rustic Brown first, then applied the Dark Oak over that. Do you mix colors by chance, or have any recommendations for achieving that effect?

    Prep the wood with the Gemini Restore Kit and a light pressure washing to restore the wood and remove the graying. Look at the TWP 1500 Series for the stain.

    what would you recommend for me. I have a new pressure treated deck with ceder floor. Just installed last week. Should I seal/stain it right away and if so what product do you recommend? I'd like a transparent finish. The deck is in direct sunlight all morning.

    I have a 50 year old post and beam cottage in the Berkshires - western Massachusetts. All western red cedar with a four foot overhang consisting of beams, tongue and groove and fascia. Wood is grey with some minor pitting. I want to bring back to new look. Suggestions please!

    MayLouL, hard to say. It it does not dry properly then you will need to strip and and start over or possibly lightly recoat. If it does not look affected then leave it alone.

    Help. We just had a deck company strip, brighten and 2 weeks later stain our deck and gazebo (yesterday) with your product. An hour later we got an unexpected rain storm, and then another during the night. What will this do to the finish? The stain also ran onto the gazebo screens. Now what? Thanks

    Have a new deck that is ready to be finished. Live in SE Michigan, deck on west side of home, installed in Oct2012, applied cleaner and scrubbed w/ brush two weeks ago to prep for finishing. Want to leave wood grain showing through and keep natural color as much as possible, what is best product to consider?

    wood is 1 month old cedartone decking sold by Menards. This is treated wood with an added color to simulate cedar. Have any advise on using TWP 1500 on this material?

    rsppjwg, you do not need to seal after the stain. Hard to say on the pail as we would need a total sq. footage including the floors, railings, and steps.

    5yrs, white cedar, good, Cabot natural deck 2 tiered. Does sealing after staining help longevity? If so what sealer? Will 5 gallon be enough to cover 16by 16 and 16 by 12, 5 steps and railing?

    Dan J, you need to apply it right away while the wood is still wet. A week or so is okay to wait.

    Just finished stripping entire cedar deck with RAD.Do I need to apply the brightener immediatly? I will also be staining with TWP 1500. How long can I let the deck sit unstained? The weather doesnt look like its going to be favorable for staining for a while.

    George, you would need to remove the CWF with the Restore A Deck Stain Stripper and pressure washing. Neutralize with the Restore a Deck Brightener when done. Stain with the 1500 Series.
