Quoting L. Little:
I have a pine pressure treated dock,walkway, railings and floating dock on saltwater in SC lowcountry. Installed in Feb. 2016. Please recommend prep and stain.

Has the deck been stained previously? See this for more info on the prep: www.twpstainhelp.com/

Use the TWP 100 Series after the prep.

I have a pressure treated dock and walkway (with 4 ft. railings) in deep east Texas. It has been in since 09/2015. The UV rays are extremely bad and the dock/walkway is graying at a rapid pace. Recommendation's on prep and stain. Also, what application method is fastest and easiest.

Prep with the Gemini Restore Kit. Stain with the TWP 100 Series. Two very light coats applied wet on wet. you can find more info on our help site:

Yes it does well in a wet climate to protect.

I need to remove Penofin from my deck. Should I use Restore a Deck or Safe Strip, or are they both the same product?

Use the RAD stain stripper. Brighten after. More effective at removing the Penofin.

I want to stain my wood barn that I built in 2015. Its external siding is a pine board and batten style. I'm looking for longest life and ease of maintaining a good finish. I'm thinking I want a red to brown finish. Redwood or Walnut tone possibly. Which of your products do you recommend?

Look at the Rustic color for this int eh 1500 Series.

I have a 1 year old unstained 2 story deck. The video covers the top surfaces pretty well, but what do I need to do with the posts and underside of the deck? Is the procedure the same? Am I looking at doubling the square footage needs for each step?

No need to stain the underside of the deck. It would be the same procedures and double the sq. footage if you decide to do it.

Hi, I guess I was wrong thinking the cedar was seasoned just sitting at the lumber yard...I guess the next step is stripping..what kind would you recommend? Would the deck cleaner be strong enough? After its been stripped, should anything else be applied, or just let it weather?

You will need the RAD Stain stripper and pressure washing. It is not easy to remove a newly and over applied stain so you may need to strip more then once the get it all off. After the stripping you will need too apply the brightener. Let weather.

just used cleaner, brightener and twp 1500 natural color stain on a brand new cedar deck, but must have used too much twp as the deck dried with a splotchy appearance mostly shiny with some flat areas. Do i need to strip it off and start over? it was beautiful before i stained it,now it looks awful! any suggestions would be most appreciated

Did you let is season for 4-12 months and only apply one coat? Yes you will need to strip off and start over:

I just stripped and brightened my deck. Had to replace a few boards so we got 2 samples. Used the samples on a replaced board that was treated the same as the deck, stripped and brightened and notice 1 came out fine and the other has blotches. I don't want that look on my deck. How do I make sure that will not happen? I can see where it looks like some boards have "fuzzies" Did I scrub to hard? Pressure wash to hard???? How do i make so it doesn't happen when I do the whole deck?

Might want to buff the entire deck with a sanding pad to remove the fuzzies. This will give a more uniform look.

RE: TWP Deck Staining Video
Bill, strip off with the Restore A Deck stripper and use the RAD Brightener when done. One of each should be enough but you may need two stripper if the Olympic is thick. One 5 gallon of the TWP 105 Cape Cod Gray.

RE: TWP Deck Staining Video
I have Olympic semi transparent "Cape Cop Gray" on my deck. I am totally dissatisfied with its application and look. It is two years old. I want to remove/strip the stain and apply a TWP cape cod gray (a semi-transparen t finish??). The deck is 600 square feet. Please tell what I need - Product and quantity - to complete the refinishing of the deck.
I see from your video you have a facility in Harrisonburg, Va. Would it be worth my time to visit the facility. It is less than 2 hrs away. Great college there as well.

Thanks for sharing your wisdom with me.

Re: Redwood Deck
Is there a way to send you a picture? Somehow I need to find a transparent or semi transparent color that works well with the redwood and with the condition of my existing deck.
Quote
re: Redwood Deck
Mazen, only the 1500 is allowed on Cali due to your state's VOC laws. It works very well for your area. Any color you like will work. As for the prep, it is hard to answer as we do not know if you have an old stain on the wood or if is is just dirty and gray.

Redwood Deck
1- Just bought a new house that has an exterior redwood deck. The deck is quite old and I am trying to identify whether I need to strip the deck or just clean it.
2- Also I did not really get the difference between the TWP 100 and 1500.
3- I am looking to stain the deck, with somehow keeping the wood natural color. I am planning to order a couple of samples, which color do you advise I should try?
4- The deck is in Southern California, how's TWP perform on such a weather?

re: how to prepare deck originally stained with PorterDeck transparent wood stain
For best results it would be best to remove the previous coating with a stain stripped followed by a wood brightener. You would not need the cleaner. Both versions of TWP would work very well for a full sun deck in St. Louis.

how to prepare deck originally stained with PorterDeck transparent wood stain
Four years ago, we stained our new western cedar deck using PPG Deck Cleaner and Porter Paint\'s \"PorterDeck\" Cedar-colored transparent wood stain. We would like to use TWP to restain the deck this summer. What is your recommendation for preparing the deck before applying the TWP stain? Is it necessary to remove what\'s left of the previous stain by using Gemini Safe Strip or Solid Strip? If so, then apply Cleaner and Brightner? Which TWP stain product would you recommend (100 vs 1500?) We live in St. Louis, the deck is in full sun, plenty of humidity and high temperatures in summer. Thanks!
