    David, you must remove the Cabot first. The TWP is a stain and a sealer.

    I have a white cedar deck that is about 8 years old. The condition of the wood is pretty good. We live in Michigan. My dilemma is that I'm staining the deck every year. For the past two years I've used Cabot stain. I'm interested in the 1500 series. Should I strip/treat the deck before staining, even if the colors are the same? What should I use if I want to change the color? Should I apply some type of sealer after the stain? Thanks

    The deck is 12 years old, it is cedar wood, not to bad condition, besides the stain i have used constantly peels off every winter..I have used Behr Stain, semi transparent and solid and the same thing happens every spring, it peels and chips off.
    I looked last year and there was a store in St. Paul, MN that carries this , i am looking for a store please advise.

    If you sand then you should use a deck cleaner and wood brightener after to prep and remove any sand dust.

    Either series would work fine.

    I have an eight-year-old pressure-treated Yellowpine wood deck. It has been stained previously, and I'm uncertain whether it's oil or water based. I've pressure washed the deck and most of the stain has been removed but there are areas where the stain is remaining. If I choose to sand the remaining stained areas will any other surface prep be required?

    The deck is in partial shade and in the shaded areas I've had a problem with mildew the past. Would you recommend the TWP 1500 or 100 stain?

    New wood should weather for 4+ months then cleaned and brightened before staining. Only 1 coat of stain on new wood.

    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.
