    My deck had not been stained in 7 years and looked pretty rough. I used the TWP 1501 Cedartone and it turned out great!

    I stained my deck last fall, but it rained about 6 hours later. The color looks good but should i put another coat on it this spring?

      If it looks good then leave it until next year.

    We used TWP Natural on cedar siding many years ago--loved it. I do have

    .a few questions. At a different house now and have a deck to stain (new pressure treated wood--is at 5 months old, nothing applied to it). In Illinois, so looking at 1500 series. Question is we used Natural on cedar siding previously, would you recommend Cedartone for pressure treated wood for similar tone? Natural on pressure treated seems like it may not have much tone. I looked through gallery, but I am not sure which photos are pressure treated woods. I did read about new wood prep, you are still recommending cleaner/brightener for 5 month old pressure treated correct? Thank you

      Clean and brighten and just one coat. Natural has a lot of color so either one would be fine.

    Any merits to applying a water sealer on top of the TWP 100 stain on a deck?

      You cannot add a sealer on top of a deck stain. It will not work.

    I stained my cedar deck in 2013 and reapplied in 2016/2017 using 1530 Natural. It is time to do it again to get the cedar color back. I was going to go with 1530 Natural, but thinking to do 1501 Cedartone.

    If I go with Natural, will it cover over the current stain? If I go with Cedartone, how will that cover? Will that give the older wood (9 years old) a better cedar look?

    Thanks!

    I prepped the deck (just railings and balusters; the floor is trex so won't need stained), only to realize the weather isn't going to cooperate for the staining part. Based on the forecast, I doubt there will be any more days this year that have a temp above 50F and no rain forecast for 48 hours. Will I need to do the full prep again in the spring? Is there anything I can do now to lessen the work that will be required again at that time, or protect the wood that is now somewhat stripped down? Any insight is appreciated.

      You will need to prep again if you cannot stain until Spring. Nothing you can do to lessen that.

    I received a can labeled 1501 Cedartone, but it looks like 1503 Dark Oak on my PT fence. Did I receive a mislabeled can or am I doing something wrong? The stain itself in the can looks dark.

      It is not mislabeled. The TWP enhances the gain of your wood. If the wood is internally darker like this then this would be the result. Also, make sure it is properly stirred as the pigment does settle. Use a drill mixer paddle on your drill.

    Looking at the samples of cedar versus pecan posted by Richard. Does anyone know if the test samples are on cedar wood?

      Looks like a brand new pressure-treated pine board and that is why the colors are so light.

    Love the results of my deck. It had two coats of solid until I sanded it down and applied TWP 1501 Cedartone. Love the results! 1.5 Gallons wet on wet!

    I have a 12x18 deck with mixed new and old wood. I like a more "natural" color but prefer brown over yellow/orange. Based on some other users' comments, seems like 1501 cedar is a good option. Any insight on how the two different color wood would look? I don't expect them to look the same but getting them closer in color would be great. The deck is in partial sun in the afternoon.

      I finally chose Pecan 1520 as it is light brown without traces of yellow. I tested samples and Pecan is similar to Natural. Have not applied it yet because the weather is not cooperating here in Indiana.

      New wood will always be a shade lighter in color than older wood as it is less absorbent.

    I tried the Natural color and it seems a little too yellow. Cedar tone seems to be more brown. However, I am concerned that in direct sunlight it will be hotter for bare feet as it is a swimming deck at a lake. Any comments?

      There would not be any difference in heat retention between the two colors.

      No, TWP does not come in a solid stain.
