    I should add the house is 14 years old - if it was ever stained/sealed it was probably only done when constructed and not since.

    I just bought a log cabin in the mountains of NC - 4500 ft elevation so harsh environment. The logs are in great shape but the exterior finish is not. It's hard to tell if it was ever stained/sealed - if so, I have no idea what was used. Couple of questions:
    1. Which, if any, TWP product is best for this application?
    2. How should the house be cleaned/prepped?
    3. Can you stain over chinking, then go back and repaint chinking grey? If so, what paint would adhere to the new stain? If not how should I go about this - just stain around the chinking?
    4. What product do you recommend to fill checks in the logs? Before or after staining?
    5. What is the recommended application technique for log houses given the situation discussed above?

    Thanks!
    -Dave

      1. TWP 1500 Series.
      2. Would need to see pictures.
      3. You cannot paint over the TWP, the paint may not adhere. Best to stain around the chinking.
      4. Do not fill checks. Just leave as is. Filler will not work or blend with the sain.
      5. Stain pads or brushes.

    I live in St. Louis MO. Am getting new teak out-door furniture delivered tomorrow. What product do you recommend- 100 vs 1500? Or?? Is much prep work needed; sanding, sealing, pressure washing?
    Thanks- Wes Berg

    Can I apply TWP 100 directly over TWP 100 that has been applied 2 years ago?

    Hello, looking for best option for 2 year old Sienna Brown pressure treated deck. Never coated with anything else just the brown pressure treatment. A few spots of mold and mildew. Should I do 100 series or 1500? Also I’m in Canada, is there a shipping charge?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 07/04/2020
      For Canada, you would need the TWP 200 Series. The 100 and 150 are not allowed there. Yes, you have to pay the shipping to Canada.

    I have power washed and sanded my deck, but there are places where the pine sap is oozing out. It gummed up the sander a few times. Can I just stain it? I plan to power wash it again when I get done sanding. I think I want to use a gray stain, what color do you recommend? I live in Missouri.

      Let it dry out longer until sap stops
    • We will reply to your comment shortly

      You can stain over the sap but when the sap dries it will be white in color. The gray colors will work.

        I think the deck is at least 3-5 years old, not sure because we just moved here. Should I do 2 coats of Cape cod gray? And do I need to use a cleaner on it if I power washed it? How long does it need to dry after power wash before staining?
        • We will reply to your comment shortly
          TWP Stains · 06/30/2020
          Just one coat of the Cape Cod Gray. Use the Gemini Restore Kit for prep. Wait 48 hours to stain

    I’m in Massachusetts and this is a PTP deck that has dried for a year. Do we need to put 2 coats on? Trying to figure out the order since we have to ship it. Concerned about only getting enough for one coat then a delay of getting more if we need a second coat. Also should we go with 1500 series
    • We will reply to your comment shortly

      Two coats wet on wet. Use the 1500 Series.

    We have a cedar deck and arbor structure that was built 20 years ago. Last time it was stained was probably 15 years ago. I just replaced several floor boards (new wood) and sanded the entire deck and overhead structure up from 60 grit to 100 grit. How long after sanding should I wait before I apply TWP1500 (we live in California)? Should I follow the instructions at https://www.twpstainhelp.com/prepping-new-wood-for-twp-stains/?

    I live in CA. What does using 1500 vice 100 cost me in terms of performance and application?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 06/19/2020
      They last the same and apply the same.

        Why do you always recommend 100 vs 1500 to people in non-VOC states?
        • We will reply to your comment shortly
          TWP Stains · 06/19/2020
          No, not always. Mostly because it is less expensive but there are scenarios where the TWP 1500 would be preferred such as cedar siding.

    Finally stained our deck and steps with TWP 1500 Dark Oak - Looks great and I will post a picture. What is a good complimentary TWP color for the posts and handrails?

    This is a silly question because this is a TWP stain site, but is there a stain that comes close to TWP? Just curious. Thanks.

      You cannot use the TWP over this. You would have to sand it all off first.

        What about Cabot water based? Can TWP 100 be applied over that? (Deck is two months old and we are SO not happy with Cabot water-based)
        • We will reply to your comment shortly
          TWP Stains · 06/29/2020
          No. You cannot apply TWP over a different brand of stain.
