    I have a 30 year old pressure treated pine deck in northern NJ that gets a lot of sun. It is in pretty decent shape. I replaced some boards and power washed the whole deck. I'm planning on sanding the deck and then applying your stain. Is any other prep necessary? Should I lightly power wash again after sanding and then what stain do you recommend?
    Thanks!

    Reconditioning deck in Michigan. Upper deck is original (10 years). Lower deck added on about 4 years. Cleaned and brightened, but some color difference remains. Lots of sun from midday on. Heavy lake effect snow in winter. Some mold around posts and underneath furniture.
    What stain is recommended. I prefer as light as reasonable for conditions.

    Use the TWP 100 Series.

    Based on the comments here it's not clear to me if it's OK to use TWP products on a composite deck. Could you please clarify? I'd like to use TWP 100 or 1500 because they appear to be very highly rated! Thanks.

    TWP is not designed for composites.

    I have a deck that has been stained with a semitransparent brown but has a glossy sheen, almost a varnished "look" that oil stain samples will not dry on. Does TWP have a solution for this scenario.

    No you cannot apply TWP on top of a stain of a different brand.

    want to redo our large 1000 ft deck, it is a redwood color pretty faded with lots of gray at this point. Want to change to gray. Like the Cape Cod Gray color, but I don't see it in the TWP 1500 series. Would the TWP 200 series work? Live in Michigan

    Use the 100 Series for MI. Clean and prep with the Gemini Restore Kit first then apply the TWP 105 Cap Cod Gray.

    Mostly rough cut. Rails and posts are smooth

    Live in NE Ohio.

    Have a new PT Pine fence.

    1. How long will your stain last?
    2. How long do I have to wait to stain?
    3. What is your recommended product?

    Thanks!

    Is the new fence rough cut wood or smooth like a deck?

    Hi, I live outside of Austin Texas. I have a log home that is 20 years old and has been sealed many times. One side of the house gets sun most of the day. Front and back are covered by porches. Which sealant do you recommend?
    Thanks
    Michael

    You would have to remove the old layers of sealer before applying the TWP. You would want the 1500 Series.

    I live in the Pacific Northwest in Washington State. Which product do you recommend for my new Deck? 100 or 1500?
    Once I apply how long before I should reapply? Thanks.

    Use the 100 Series for this. See this about new wood decks:

    We have a 15 year old cabin in the Idaho Mountains and getting ready to stain smooth, half round pine siding. Plan on using rustic in either 100 or 1500 series. One side of cabin gets sun 3-4 hours a day, rest of cabin gets little to no sun. Lots of snow in the winter and warm dry summers. Do you recommend the 100 or 1500 series and why?
    Thanks!

    Use the 100 Series since you have only 3-4 hours of sun. Better penetration and dries faster.

    On your comparison chart you show the price of 5 gals TWP 100 AS $154.99 yet in my cart it shows $170. What is the actual price?

    It is $170 per 5 gallon.
