    Restored my 25 year old cedar deck to "like new" condition.

    I had the deck sanded by a local contractor. Then applied the Restore-A-Deck Cleaner and Brightener. Two days later I applied two coats (wet-on-wet) of TWP 1500 Series Cedartone stain. Weather stayed dry for 3 days after staining, and the results could not have been better. Got a "new" deck at a fraction of the cost of replacing all the decking. Great products. Excellent finish!!

    Pergola that was pressure washed and then sealed with TWP 1501 Cedartone. Turned out gorgeous. I always recommend TWP!

    Hello, I will say that the stain I purchased from you last year has done wonders for my deck. In the past I used a sand mixed coating; it was some type of paint that I purchased from Home Depot. I used the stuff on my Moms two porches and our deck. It was a total disaster, after a year the stuff started flaking off. It flaked off everywhere. I cleaned the deck with their deck wash and followed the instructions to a tee. It looked great at first 14 months and 2.5 years later I was pressure washing the remaining stuff off. They sent me some new product. I ended up giving it to my brother for his tree stand. I still have to finish pressure washing one of the porches for my Mom.

    My neighbor was the one who introduced me to your product. For the past 6 years I have admired my neighbors deck. It looks great and I asked him what he used? He wrote down the info that directed me to your site. And the two decks are the reason I will be using your product on my Moms porches.

    You have a great product!!

    Thanks Ben

    TWP 100 Series - California Redwood on new construction Douglas Fir rough sawn lumber patio cover in Arizona. After attempting to find various stains locally and scouring the internet I came across TWP stains and have been very pleased with the result. Neighbors ask who did the structure and want to replicate for themselves.

    I restained my deck and my fence. I used TWP Redwood 200 series. I had stain them before using the same product so I only needed to power wash the wood and then apply the stain.

    When we first built our deck we decided to use the cheapest stain we could find from the big box store. The before picture you see below is what that stain looked like after one winter. It was hours of work and hundreds of dollars wasted. I consider it one of the worst decisions I have made. This spring, we stripped the old stain with deck stripper and a pressure washer. We then sanded the entire deck with a stand behind orbital floor sander. After we sanded, we applied the step#1 and step #2 restore a deck cleaner and brightener. The wood looked as new as the day we bought it. We waited 48 hours after the cleaning and brightening to let the wood dry and made sure no rain was coming for 48 hours after, then stained it using the the TWP stain 1520 pecan. It looks great and I will post more pictures after it goes through an Illinois Winter. My wife and I can already tell this stuff is better than the stuff they sell at the big box store. The moral of the story here is, don't buy cheap stain.

    Brand new pressure treated deck with cedar rails that had aged for 10-months prior to using the gemini restore-a-deck kit. Once the wood was dry, deck and rails were stained with TWP 100 Series in Pecan 120.
