    We have a Pier & Boathouse constructed in January 2013 and are now ready to stain. Should we apply 2 coats to the areas that are open to the Sun?

    I have a one year old cedar deck which had a one coat acrylic stain applied after sanding. It is already graying with most of the stain wearing off. Is the 1500 a good choice or the 100? Can you ship either to Canada?
    Thanks.

    I have an 8 year old deck that was stained with a redwood solid Cabot oil based stain. We have sanded and used chemical stripper. The wood is in good condition but much of the stain is still left behind. We have morning shade and full afternoon sun. Lots of snow in winter and deck up against a pool.

    Any assistance would be so much appreciated!

    We had a wooden built last November - the railings are cedar and the floor is pressure treated pine. We were told it should dry out for about 4 months. We are now having it cleaned and sealed. Do you recommend one coat or two coats (it has never had anything applied)
    Thank you,

    Narasu, TWP is not legal for Canada and cannot be shipped there or brought across the border.

    We have a pressure treated wood deck, aged about 8-10 yrs, previously stained but is now completely stripped off and looks quite ugly. Full sun from morning until about 5 pm in summer, winter is cold with lots of snow... open deck, no cover at all. Need to restain, live in Toronto(Canada) area. Total area about 500 sqft. Please suggest stain and the best procedure to be done. If required I can get it shipped to a US address.

    For 2 coats you would need about 10 gallons for 1000 s. feet.

    1) Age of Wood - About 12 years old

    2) Type of Wood - Western Red Cedar

    3) Condition of wood - Good, freshly sanded all surfaces to bare wood

    4) Previously stained using Flood CWF-UV about 3 years ago.

    5) Deck is about 700 sqft. Total about 1000 sqft with railing and skirt. All surfaces had weathered to just about bare wood, so all surfaces were sanded to bare wood to remove any remaining stain and weathering.

    Will 5 gallons be enough to stain this deck?

    * My deck is 9 months old
    * It is made of pressure treated pine
    * The wood condition and is starting to turn color
    * The deck has not been stained previously
    * Partially covered deck in the foothills of NC

    From what I've read, TWP 1500 would be the best product. What is your opinion and recommendation on application method?

    Question: (1)Do I need to do any wood prep beyond clean and brighten to apply TWP to a previously stained deck. (2) Should I use TWP 100 or 1500?
    Background details: 8-yr old pressure treated, good condition although I am replacing all top rails. Stained 5-years ago with Cabot Australian Timber Oil (Mahogany Flame).
    Most of stain on decking is worn, particularly in traffic areas. Spindles all remain with consistent stain coverage.

    Caren, prep first with the Gemini Restore Kit. You would need a 5 gallon pail for the 2 coats.

    1. Age of wood: three years
    2. Type of wood: Pressure treated pine
    3. Condition: decent- some splintering in a few areas. Doesn't appear to have been stained.

    My deck is a little over 500 square feet. How much of the TWP 1500 do I need and should I plan on two coats?

    Thank you!

    You should always prep before staining. You would want to use the Gemini Restore kit. Sample credits are applied after the order is placed. Just leave a not in the comment area during checkout about it.
