    I used twp 100 cedar tone three years ago on our deck. Am considering using the darker pecan to restain. Will the darker color look ok over spots that faded or are worn due to foot traffic? I plan to clean and brighten first, of course. Thank you.

    Hi I have a brand new cypress swing, nothing on it sanded raw wood. What would u recommend. My cypress beams on my house are currently stained in an early American stain and would like something comparable. Thanks!

    I power sprayed a 25 year old pressure treated deck and want to use twp 1500 semi transparent.  Does the deck need to be cleaned and why if it's bright ?

      Cleaned and brightened for best results and to make sure the TWP fully soaks into the wood grain.

    I am building a new house in Tennessee with rough sawn cedar accents & posts on the outside and cedar beams on the inside. I like the cabin fever and weathered cedar in the semi-solid stain. Is this product going to be the best for long term color and water repelant or would one of your other products be better ?

      Yes, this would give the best results.

    I have been using the the 100 series on my Log home for over 12 years including the original application. It looks and works great!! Why doesn't TWP advertise more as a great product for log home applications? It is a much better product than the over-priced stains you see in the Log and Timber publications? I have used both and trust me TWP is not only better but a much better value.

    I live in Austin, TX and will be staining a new deck (aged for 5 months). It gets extreme afternoon sun exposure. Should I use the 100 or 1500 series?

    Want to stain/preserve some bass wood (Indonesian) deck chairs.  Can I use your stain for both the chairs and our new white cedar railing (8 months old).  I was thinking of the 1500.  Seattle area.  Thanks

      As long as both kinds of wood are prepped correctly and free of previous coatings, you are okay.

    Is the 100 series oil based?  If so, what kind of oil is in it?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 07/08/2021
      Yes, it is. A combination of natural and synthetic oils.

    Hi, I've been using 100 on my pressure treated pine deck for a few years. I like the look of semi solid colors.  Do you project the new semi solids to hold up less, equal, better, or longer than the 100 series?What would I need to do to change over?
    Thanks.

    Can you compare cedartone to honeytone for me in the 100 series? They appear to be very similar, except I've read your description that says Honeytone is the lightest. Is it a light cedar, or totally different color base?  Thanks!

    I just stained half my deck with semi-solid super cedar and we think it looks way too orange, especially on CCA treated boards. It looks a little better and darker on the cedar boards I have. Is there a better color, still in the cedar family? Maybe cedar mulch,cedar chest,autumn foliage, or heartwood? Can you just stain one of these right over it? I really do not want to strip it all. It looks good, just not liking the orange.

      Colors will vary based on the wood type and age of wood so there is not a way for us to say what is "better" in what would be your personal preference of color. You would have to remove it if you want to switch.

    This is a picture of the ceiling on my porch.  I was told this was twp and it was a mixture of 2 stains.  Can you tell from this picture what it might be?

      Looks more like straight pecan or cedartone.

    My deck finishing contractor gave me color recommendations for finishing my new deck.  One is a blend of (TWP 200/100) Butternut/Dark Oak;  One is TWP 200 Butternut;  And the Third is a TWP 200/100 blend of Russet Brown/Rustic.  Of the three, which one would be the best for UV protection?  The first option is the darkest if that makes any difference
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 06/09/2021
      All would give equal UV protection.

        Thank you.  We went with the Russet Brown/Rustic blend.  Just finished this week.  I liked the idea of a blend of the two (200/100) and it looks fabulous!  Thank you for taking the time to answer everyone's questions.  I don't believe I have ever seen a company do this, and you answer extremely quickly.  Customer service is very important to me and you go way above and beyond

    Hello, I'm having a new deck built out of douglas fir. What do you recommend as a buy-once cry-once solution that will survive high desert heat/full sun? Also, is any prepping required of the new lumber and how easy is re-coating/applying? Thank you

        See here about new wood. You cannot do it yet.https://www.twpstainhelp.com/prepping-new-wood-for-twp-stains/

        It can be sprayed but you will need to back wipe it for a uniform application. Clean and recoat as needed.

          Ok, so let them build it un-coated/raw and prep/coat in 4-12 months. Does spraying with an airless sprayer require thinning? What is the preferred method of application? Thanks
          • We will reply to your comment shortly
            TWP Stains · 06/08/2021
            No, do not thin. Stain pads and brushes are best for applying:https://www.twpstain.com/wood-and-deck-stains/application-tools/brushes-stain-pads

                Hello, my county is telling me I have to have some coating on the deck to pass inspection to move in, what do you recommend I put on it to pass inspection that I can easily remove to put on your product? Thanks

                  TWP Stains · 06/10/2021
                  That is the weirdest county thing we have ever heard. Tell them that is it not advisable to ever coat or stain a deck right away and it can create more issues down the road.

                    Yeah, I just moved here (Yavapai County AZ) from Oklahoma, and this feels like California rules. Can you ship the 100 Series to zip code 86327? Thanks for all your help!

      Sand it off. Strippers will not remove solid stains fully.

    Do you recommend a specific stain if you are near the ocean because of salt in the air?

      The 100, 1500, or Semi-Solids would work for this area.

    I've used TWP 1500 stain on my treated wood decks for a few years and am impressed with it.  I have a home-built piece of cedar outdoor furniture that I would like to treat with TWP outside and later bring in to the house. What are your thoughts on this and whether it would be safe after allowing an off-gassing period outside?
