    I have a 6 month old cedar fence that was never treated. It is starting to look grey in color. Which stain would be best and how long will I need to repeat the staining process?

    Should I use 100 or 1500 for a redwood deck in northern CO? Our wood is new but has been aged ~6 months.

    I had a pressure treated pine wood deck installed about 3 years ago by previous homeowner. It was never stained nor treated in any way. Just wood straight from Home Depot. What should I use? (Location: South Louisiana)

    3 year old pressure treated pine deck near Atlanta, GA. Recently stained using Cabot stain. Apparently deck was not prepped properly. Signs of mold under two coats of stain.

    I plan to strip and brighten the deck. What product do you recommend I use to stain? And best application method?

    I have been using Cabot in natural tone. Is there a similar RAD or TWP color?

    Thanks for your help.

      Try TWP in the 115 Honeytone color. That would be the closest.

    Living in Louisville KY, which will be the best for my application TWP100 or TWP1500. I plan to use a redwood color. I am sanding a 15 year old deck to bare wood removing a latex stain. Thank you for your time.

      After sanding make sure to do a final prep with the Gemini Restore Kit. Use the 100 Series.

    Hi. I live in the hot, southern area of Texas and I just put up a new pine fence. I would like to stain it a dark color like the black walnut. Can I use the 1500 series or do I have to use the 100?

    I have a 1 year old southern yellow pine deck. I cleaned it this summer and used a wood brightener and applied TWP 100. The wood looks great except a few areas that have turned white almost like maybe its sap coming thru. I have attached a couple pics and was wondering if you have any suggestions on how to fix and prevent this?


    Thanks, Don

      Yes, that is sap leeching out of the wood. No way to prevent. You could try removing the sap with laquer thinner than touching it up with stain.

    I have a 2 month old PT pine deck in western NC. Should I use 100 or 1500 stain and does it require 2 coats? How long should the wood rest before staining?

    Do all TWP Stain Series contain paraffin oil? Refinishing cedar deck in southwest Idaho

      No. The TWP 200 Series has paraffin oil and other curing oils.

    How long is the shelf life of a 5 gallon pail of 100? If I only use part... how long will it last once opened?

    Hello, just finished cleaning and prepping a 20yr old redwood deck, looks great. I had ordered samples of dark oak and redwood, we chose the dark oak, and it covered up to color to much, so i’m Looking at the cedar, would it work better at letting the grains and reds show through. also we are at 7,000 ft lots of UV’s what’s the recommended clearer stain with a good UV blocker? Also is it possible to return unopened containers of the Dark Oak?

    Hello: I have two applications. My home is western upland red cedar lap siding. It is in perfect condition with no cracks anywhere. We applied TWP 100 when built in 2003. It has really performed well. Starting to fade in some areas so I want to re-apply a new coat. Should I use the 100 again or is the 1500 a better product for the siding. Cedar tone. Second application is a log cabin I built in 2006, again applied TWP 100. I sanded the original logs, they are kiln dried. I applied two coats originally because it sucked it all up being kiln dried logs, penetrated deeply. Norway pine and white pine logs, from Beaver Log homes, milled round and chinked. I need to clean the logs with a material to remove a little bit of black mildew stain on the surface from pine pollen over the years, it comes off easily. The original 100 application is fading a bit now, so I want to reapply. Should I just reapply the 100 again or is the 1500 a better product. We live in the Upper Penninsula of Michigan. Rick
