    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.

    age : 8 years
    pine treated
    good but cracking never stain or painted
    1000 square feet deck
    90 ft. of railing
    The deck and railing were cleaned in August 2012 and i have ordered 3 sample stains. i like the dark oak. It covers well and I believe that I will not have to clean the area again.
    I would appreciate your advice.
    If I order online how do I get the rebate for the 3 samples
    Thank you Terry brown

    I have a 25 year pressure treated pine wood deck in decent condition for its age. It has only been waterproofed and never stained. About a quarter of the deck can get up to 6 hours of direct sunlight. Most boards are fine but the sunny ones are weather worn but acceptable. There is some black mold & mildew plus greening. Overall the deck is gray colored now. What do you suggest?

    Our deck was built October 2012. Made of cedar, live in Minneapolis, MN. Wood has bleached out immensely over winter due to constant sun exposure. 2 level deck, 14' x 20' and 26' x 20', 2 flights of stairs.
    Would you use twp 1500? Would you use Gemini deck cleaner? How many gallons o stain do I need for this project?

    Hi!
    Our deck was built from cedar 7 months ago here in Minneapolis, MN.
    We have not stained it yet. It gets a ton of sun & snow as well. We have read a lot on what stain to use and we would like to know what you might recommend between the twp 100 or 1500 stain? and also how any gallons necessary for our deck? It is two stories., one floor is 14' x 20' and one is 26' x 20'. Plus 2 flights of cedar wood stairs.
    Also what do you recommend forvprep?
