    We have a Cedar deck that is 4 years old has been treat with unfortunately Thompson's I have clean and washed deck. I have but down one coat of 1501 on all the flat surfaces with a pad and got real good coverage but did not have the chance to do the wet on wet is it to late to go back in and brush on a second coat and try to get better coverage in between the deck boards.

    Doyle, clears will have no UV protection from graying. You must have a tint for that.

    We have a new pier & boathouse in East Texas that was completed in January. Which color between clear and cedartone would you recommend and why? We are considering the TWP1500. If we use cedartone will the areas open to the Sun lighten before the area under the boat house roof? It is an open boat house with no sides? Thanks

    George, we are an online retailer for TWP and we personally do not have a dealer in your area. Not sure how we can help but shipping to your area takes 2-4 days normally but we cannot guarantee by Wednesday.

    Sheri, you must remove the failed stain first before applying the TWP. You can apply 2 coats wet on wet with the twp. About 15 gallons will be needed.

    Chris J, use the Restore A Deck Stain stripper followed by the brightener for the prep. If needed, sand off any remaining stain. Stain with TWP 1500. best to apply by stain pad or brush. it can be sprayed but you will need to back brush the stain for uniformity.

    1. About 10-12 years old
    2. Pressure treated pine-old type not ACQ
    3. Fair
    4. Yes Home Depot Behr Premium Transparent weatherproofing wood finish natural applied 3-4 years ago.

    The deck is 14 X 20 in size, the current stain is staring to wear off and there are some spots on the deck boards that are bare and starting to gray. Which product is best to strip off the old stain and brighten the wood? Would TWP 1500 be the best choice? Do you need a special tank sprayer to apply it or will any garden sprayer work? Can you use a power sprayer like the Wagner Control Spray Double Duty spray gun?

    Viking Hedberg, prep the deck with the Gemini Restore Kit. Strip the garage to remove the SW stain with Restore A Deck Stripper. Stain both with TWP 1500 series.
