    I replaced decking and benches on a 1200 sf, 26 year old SYP treated deck with new SYP treated decking and railings. The old deck was treated with Sherwin Williams Redwood stain. I installed new decking/ railings in June 2018, and allowed the wood to dry/ season for about 9 months before cleaning and brightening with Gemini kit, and staining with 1 coat of TWP 100- Cedartone 101. I am very pleased with the result. I plan to add another coat in the fall.

    I had a 3 year old cedar deck which was stained with Cabot’s semi transparent Mahogany stain. It never soaked in wood and peeled and wore off. I used your Stripper, and Brightener with some power washing and sanding, all according to your directions to the letter. I then stained with TWP 1500, Rustic, stain. Utilized the wet on wet 2 coat application. I am thrilled with outcome, although a lot of work for me. I hope this stain has penetrated and holds up for couple of years. I am now 69 years old and don’t want to strip again. Very pleased and appreciative of all your help. Please consider me an entry into contest. Thanks again. Maureen

    Three sections of decking wrap around the house. All were coated in solid stain and were sanded by hand. Center covered deck is series 1500 coated in California redwood and black walnut accents. Center deck is bookended by 1500 series redwood. The cedar siding on the house is four year old 1500 natural (hand sanded for prep) followed by redwood this year. Color will lighten slightly. Before and after a for each project posted. Now to enjoy summer 2019!!

    I had a new deck built for my Park Model on Douglas Lake in Northeast TN back in September. I found TWP stain on the internet and thought I would give it a try. Sure glad that I did! I cleaned and brightened the deck first with the Gemini Cleaner/Brightener kit. A few days later I stained the deck with TWP 120 Pecan. I only applied one coat as per directions on website for a new deck, and plan on re-applying in the Spring of 2021. Since application it has rained and I have to say that you can tell the product is doing its job! Thanks for a great product.

    Great product. Used the clear on outside wood furniture and the Cedar tone on my back porch. Planning to do my front porch this year but going with a darker shade than Cedar.

    Northern VA-I recently used TWP 103 dark oak on the posts and beams of a screened deck project. Pressure treated pine with about 10 months of drying time, no other prep. Very pleased with the coverage, absorbtion and outcome. We'll be using the same application on two more large deck projects.

        Thank you very much the stain capped off an 11 month DIY project! Was planning on using Sikkens but was impressed with the amount of online reviews I read as well as the sample I received.

    I have been using TWP stain 100 for our Deck We built 5 years ago. Very happy with it. Last year just for experiment while restaining our deck, we purposely left two deck boards to be stained by another brand (Home depot?) just to compare. After one year, please see the results. uploading the Pictures soon. TWP definitely hold much better. The two planks in the middle have a lot of green algae and black mold than the other planks that were stained by TSP100 year ago
    Thanks

    I am building a log cabin from antique pine logs from a tobacco barn. What product would you recommend to preserve, yet maintain as much of the originality of the logs? I already bought a gallon of 1500 cedar tone, but think it may alter the appearance too much. The picture is a log I just cleaned.


    Thanks
