    Don, TWP is a penetrating oil based stain. You can get samples on the site for $6 each to test.

    1.Deck is 3 years-old
    2.Pressure Treated Lumber
    3. Wood is in good condition, no graying.
    4. Previously applied Behr semi-transparent stain to our deck, which started peeling in 6 months. I have stripped & sanded the deck, but a few spots have some residual stain.

    5. Deck is in full sun for the majority of the day. This is also the main entry into our home, so lots of foot traffic. We need something that is going to provide maximum protection.

    Questions:

    1. Is TWP 1500 the product that I should use? If not, what do you suggest?

    2. Do I need to get absolutely ALL of the old stain off before staining with TWP? The Behr that is left is REALLY on there. Funny that lots of spots were peeling up, but the residual stain refuses to give up it's hold.

    Thanks, Janice

    Do I still need to wait before applying TWP even if I have kiln-dried treated pine decking?

    What is the difference between TWP 100 vs. 1500?

    It would best to remove the Biowash Natural Deck Oil first with a stain stripper followed by the brightener for the prep.

    We have cedar decking that is 15 years old and in very good shape, having used Biowash natural deck oil to maintain it over the years. That product is no longer available, and TWP was recommended as best alternative. Do we need to completely strip the Biowash off the wood in order for TWP to absorb properly, or can we just use cleaner/wood brightener on it and then apply TWP over the remaining Biowash?

    Gary, TWP is a penetrating semi-transparent stain. It is not a paint.
