TWP does not make a solid stain. We do have semi-solid colors but you will need to make sure to fully remove any prior coatings.

Clear with no tint means it will not prevent UV graying. You must have a tinted sealer to prevent the graying. Look at any of the tinted colors in the 1500 Series.

New deck was built June 2023. Now its Nov. 2023. Pressure Treated Pine.  Never stained or sealed. Middle Tennessee area. Uncovered area gets full sun most of the day. Covered area gets less sun and is way less weathered. Does that matter? Covered is also screened in and has rug and furniture.  We are looking for more natural color, would TWP 1530 Natural be a good choice? We were hoping to seal and stain before December. Too Cold? What if it takes 2 days to seal and stain? Thanks for your time and suggestions!

We are redoing a pine log cabin that was built in the 70’s.   We have sanded down the logs and are getting ready to stain.  I have used the 100 series Pecan to create a sample on a piece of actual log and I like the color using only 1 coat.  Is it recommended to use 2 coats or will 1 coat work fine?  my only worry is that 2 coats will make it much darker.

OK!  That was the part I was missing!  So am I correct that both the 100 series are comparable, and the only time 1500 is necessary is when you are in a prohibited state?  Otherwise 100 series might even be preferred because of better penetration?

24 year old deck. 31′ x 12′, approximately 75′ of rail cap at 3′ height. Steps fit deck footprint so were not added separately. Unknown wood type. Has not been touched in the past 7 years. Unknown last date / type of stain. Based on appearance it appears to have been a transparent stain. I have access to a pressure washer (in the photos, deck has just been pressure washed over past 2 days…top and bottom of deck). My primary concern is maintenance / longevity, with aesthetics being 2nd place. I’m going to be re-applying treatment to the entire deck (including the bottom). Posts on top of the deck are 8′ 6×6 posts. Bottom posts are 9′ 6×6 posts.

Looking for recommendations on products needed and quantities.

Hi,
I’m a seeking a go-to stain/protectant for new cedar fences. Really want to preserve the natural cedar look as much as possible. I’m a contractor in Houston and with the heat and humidity, new cedar pickets turn gray quickly. Most customers don’t want a color stain, just as natural as possible. VOC isn’t an issue. Ease of application on vertical rough cedar surface is key. Would you recommend the 100 series or the 200 series? Can I spray it? Any other recommendations or tips?
Thanks for your advice!

It must be tinted for UV protection from graying. Clears will gray naturally. Use the 100 Series. Honeyton is the lightest tint with UV protection.

Thanks. Just to clarify before I order:
Is honeytone less pigment and more natural than cedartone?
Also, you indicated 200 series is best for siding, helping wood from drying out (below). We use Western Red Cedar rough sawn for 8′ horizontal fence pickets, and its very porous. What is the difference between 200 and 100 series? 
Appreciate your help!

Honeytone is the lightest tint and lighter than Natural and Cedartone. 200 Series is for shakes and shingles. You can use it on a rough-sawn fence as well. No distinct long-term advantages to either outside the 200 has non-drying oils as well that help dried out wood. The 200 series goes on very dark and takes 2-3 weeks to fully cure to final color.

I’m confused at all the recommendations for 100 series over the “new and improved” 1500 series. Other than the 100 series is not approved in some states, in what circumstances would the 100 series be better than the 1500 “new and improved” series?

Better penetration and quicker dry time for the 100 Series. Otherwise, they will perform the same on a deck surface.

So if the 100 series has better penetration and dries quicker, why is the 1500 considered “new and improved”?  Why use the 1500? Why spend more on the 1500 vs 100, unless you are in a state that you can’t use the 100?

Sanding is not the correct way to prep as it closes the pores and reduces Stain penetration. If you do sand, never use finer than 60-80 grit and only apply one coat due to lack of absorption. At this point, strip and brighten for prep using the Restore A Deck Stripper Kit.

We have inherited a large wooden sculpture which has been treated, but it has always been indoors, for more than 20 years. Not exactly sure what kind of wood, but presumably cedar, as we live in the Pacific Northwest. We want to move the sculpture outside and would like to know how to best treat it further so it will weather our WET winters. Do you have a product you would recommend? If so, what should we do to prep the sculpture prior to treatment, and how much product do we need? The sculpture is of a life-size bald eagle catching fish in its talons. It is approximately seven feet tall, three feet wide at the top of its wings, which are drawn up toward each other and approximately 18″ at the bottom. Very hard to tell how much coverage we need because of all the detailed nooks and crannies in the wings and body. Please provide any input you are able to based on this information.
