    This is a 10 year old deck and fence and upper deck stained this year. This is the fourth time I purchased your product and did it with your cleaning-products, both steps. Every time. I A Am a 74 yr old woman, painted the deck myself with a brush, then hired out the fence and the upper deck. I buy 2 -5 gallon buckets each time. I love your product

    This is a 900 square foot Western Red Cedar deck that is 30 years old and was painted with a failing solid stain. Lots of weathering and much mildew. Most said "tear it down" but I saw it differently.

    I first set all nails that were proud to the deck then lightly power washed followed by sanding to bare wood with a 12x18 rental orbital floor sander to a 60 grit finish. Then the Restore A Deck Cleaner/Brightener product was used as directed. After 48 hours of drying, I stained the deck with TWP 100 series Rustic using the wet-on-wet technique.

    I couldn't be happier and impressed with the results. Future maintenance coats will now be a breeze which is the reason I went with this product. Looking forward to this deck's next 30 years!

    My deck had never been stained and showed it. I sanded the floor and the rails using 80 grit sandpaper and then used Restore A Deck cleaner and brightener on the whole deck. I used TWP 100 series dark oak stain. With such a large deck, it took quite a bit of time, but the results were well worth the effort!

    We have just completed restoration of our 40 yr. old log home. Replaced railings and rotted logs.
    Stripped the whole house using Restore a Deck Stripper, Brightener, Gel & Booster. The results are fabulous. It was quite a project, but I am so HAPPY! Check out the before/after pics. (I hope I have downloaded these correctly-Please advise if not received.)

    I recently constructed a 2,200 sq.ft. barn and used rough cut hemlock for board and batten siding. I used TWP 1500, Pecan 1520 for the stain/color. There is still some more work to complete this project, but the stain when on great and looks good! We are very happy with the results and look forward to using TWP products on other projects.

    Originally stained deck in October 2012 with TWP 1500 Redwood in Northeast USA.

    Re-stained deck this summer (August 2019) with TWP 1500 Redwood, prepped with Gemini Cleaner/Brightener and pressure washer.

    Wood held up phenomenally well in the ~ 7 years since the initial staining in 2012. Only needed to sand the hand rails before staining.

    You'd think the deck was brand new again. TWP is hands down the best option for deck stain, especially in the harsh changing seasons of Northeastern USA.

    THANK YOU TWP!
