    2 years ago i stain a new deck with Australian timber oil using the 19400 series which goes on as latex and dries as a oil finish and has not held up well. I would like to re-do with TWP 100 series. if the deck is cleaned with restore a deck will i be able to put the TWP 100 on?
    Thanks,
    Bill

      Hello,

      No, you will have to fully remove the Cabot first. Strip and or sand.

    For a new weathered redwood deck, is 1500 recommended or would you recommend TWP100 if my state allows it and would you recommend RAD or Gemini to clean and brighten? Is the redwood tint very subtle as I want to just highlight the natural wood coloring.

    How many coats on a criss Cross Wood Cattle Fencing that is a year old and never been stained or sealed? (if we use TWP 1500) This wood fencing is out in fields. I assume this serves as a sealer and stain and no need for any other under coat?

    I read through some posts. Looks like you recommend the 100 series for the first time, after the weathering period? Would you recommend continued use of the 100 series or switching to the 1500 series for continued maintenance?
    Thanks.

    I'm a little confused about the difference between the 100 and 1500 series stain. I'm in Corpus Christi, Texas and want to use the longest lasting product for a new cedar fence. I thought that the 100 series was better, because in the description it says that it "sheds water" and the 1500 says that it's "water resistant". But I see that the 1500 series has a higher solids content and takes longer to dry.

    Which on will last longer and repel water better?


    Thanks

      The difference is VOC content and what is allowed in certain states. For TX, you can use either series and both would last the same on a fence.

        I recommend you use an airless spayer and back brush it in with a large 6" deck brush. Will save you 75% of the time.

    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.

    I am putting on already eixisting stained barn so do i need to strip the old or just go over it with TWP? The prior stain was TWP FYI.
