    Kenny, It seems you have a solid color stain for this deck already? You cannot use TWP on this. You would need to sand off the Duron first then you can use the TWP 1500.

    We added a 3 season room and deck last year. All wood is new untreated cedar. We'd like to treat the wood for weathering, sun, and enhance the color of the wood. I'm considering the TWP 1500 stain, probably the Cedar stain. Anything comments or tips before we proceed?

    Rayray, bleach is bad for wood as it breaks done the wood cells. We do not suggest it.

    Kim, you can stain the floor then walk back on to reapply. Just do not step in your second coat. Please read this for more info:

    I built a pt pine deck last summer. I'd like to stain in this spring. I'm interested in your TWP 1500 but I'm a bit confused with the "wet on wet" application. How can you stain a horizontal deck then turn aroung and re-apply stain over the wet surface?

    Tim, you would need to remove the BM first with the Restore-A-Deck stain stripper followed by the brightener. You can get samples in the top menu. There is an button to order them.

    15 yr old redwood deck, good condition. every few years I sand the deck and apply BenjaminMoore transparent deck stuff. after 1 or to years the redwood starts to gray and grow mildew. im in central jersey so hot/cold extremes. whats best...twp 1500 or 100? do I need to do anything except for cleaning to apply twp product? the B-M stuff seems to absorb into the wood since I notice that after a yr the wood becomes permeable to water again. i like the natural color of the redwood so would "rustic" be better than "CA redwood" color? how do I get samples?

    Ted Carmichael:
    I am building a pavilion out of new rough cut cedar. I would like to apply the stain before putting in the building. Do I need to use a cleaner on this material before staining with TWP1500?

    If it is rough then you do not need to clean first.

    Lynn, it would be best to remove the Cabot so the TWP can properly penetrate into the wood and adhere. This will give the TWP 1500 the proper prep for maximum performance. You can use the RAD Stripper followed by the RAD Brightener to remove the Cabot.

    Deck wood is new pressure treated pine. 12X16 deck with closed sides. Should I prep it with cleaner and brightener? What is the best application method?

    TWP is an exterior stain. While it may be used indoors, it will have strong odor for application and will linger for a time. Either 100 or 1500.

    Live in central Texas. pressure treated wood flooring and cedar rails and trim. Wood is 5 years old and in good condition. not a lot of mildew. Moderately bleached from sun but still looks pretty good. NOT stained previously. About 1000 sq ft floor area.
    How is TWP 1500 applied... What preparation is recommended. Thanks

    Suzanne, you cannot blend or hide a dark color with a light color. You would need to either remove the rest, choose a similar color, or accept that it would be uneven with choosing a lighter color.
