    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.

    Rick, prep the wood with the Gemini Restore Kit. This will remove the gray and restore the cedar color. Stain with the 1500 Series.

    MikeM,after the proper prepping I would suggest the TWP 1503 Dark Oak. Make sure you remove the old stain first by stripping or sanding.

    I need to stain a deck that has not been done in at least 5 years. A small portion of the deck and railing is exposed to the elements but 85% of it is undercover. Current color is brown-ish...don't know the brand. Possibly cedar probably pine. Maybe 10 years old. Not sure.

    What product and procedure do you recommend? I planned on sticking with a dark color.
    Thanks
