    Prep with the Gemini Restore Kit first then stain with the TWP 1500 Series. Make sure to double your sq. footage if doing both sides of the fence.

    Peg, you would need to make sure that the Wolman removed from the deck prior to applying the TWP. TWP 1515 Honeytone is the lightest color.

    Yes use the Restore to clean any dirt or grime then apply a light maintenance coat on top of the current stain. If the stain has not "thickened" from solvent evaporation then it should be okay.

    Benny, you need to clean and prep the siding first. If the TWP is able to penetrate into the wood then you should be good to go.

    Stained a 8-month old deck last string with twp 1500. I want to recoat this spring.

    Do I just use restore-a-deck again, and then apply more twp 1500 over deck?

    Also, have some left over in 5 gallon drum. Can I just get a couple more gallons in mixed with last years left over.

    The wood is a pine log siding, about 3 years old. It has been stained with cabbot clear stain. The condition is good but heard about your product and would like to use it. Is it ok to use over the clear stain. I want to use your cedar color. Have used your test samplers and worked good.
    Tks Waiting for your reply Benny

    Yes you would need to remove the Behr first before applying the TWP. Behr is very difficult to remove. Strip it with the RAD stripper then sand any remnants. Make sure to use the RAD Brightener as well.

    Hi,

    Our brand new redwood deck has been done for about two weeks. This is non-kiln dried wood with a reported moisture content of around 12%. We are in NorCal where it is now sunny, dry and warm. We plan on cleaning/brightening the deck with Restore-A-Deck. How long to wait to stain the deck. Likely using one of the TWP 1500 series colors for this.

    Thanks!

    Rick

    Jeff Z, I would use the 1515 Honeytone and apply just one coat for the first time. Make sure to clean and prep with the Gemini Restore Kit. For application help, please read these articles.

    I finished a new deck out of Pressure treated lumber about 5 months ago. Haven't decided on a color but want to go with something light like Honeytone. Which TWP product do you recommend for first time application? How much will I need for approx 750sf? Can I use a paint sprayer for application or does this need to be brushed/rolled. Any other application/prep tips? Thanks!

    Jim, prep with the Gemini Restore Kit first. I would use the TWP 1500 in any color but take inconsideration that darker/richer colors will take longer to fade from the UV.

    Joy, you can use the Black Walnut on your wood but make sure that you back wipe an excess stain if it does not absorb in 30 minutes or so.

    Strip and brighten the deck with the Restore-A-Deck products then stain with the 1502 Redwood if looking for a similar color.

    I would do a light cleaning to remove dirt and grime then apply a light maintenance coat to the horizontal flooring.
