    we live in GA. used TWP honeytone on new pressure treated pine deck 4 years ago. Just finished prepping for reapplication with California cedar Local store has told contractor they no longer recommend 100 and I should by 200. Is that correct and why?

      No, use the TWP 100 Series. The 200 is for shakes and shingles.

    We have a treated old treated lumber deck. Put deck over on it and it was awful within a few years. He sanded it all off and I cleaned it with warm water tsp and little bleach.. Then hosed it off. Can we now apply twp 100? Thank you

      As long as it is clean and free of the old coating, yes.

    Newly built pressure treated steps. Posts are 6x6 should we wait the full 12 months? Do we do under the steps?

    how to know whether to use 100 series or 1500 series? I guess if you're in one of the state that allows 100, that is the preferred option? We're in Georgia, so we should use Series 100?

    I sprayed my sawn cedar fence with cedartone and my fence looks great. I also used a pump sprayer that worked very well with the stain and made the job very easy.

    I have a Mahogany farmers porch that was treated about 5 years ago with Penofin Brazilian Rosewood Oil. I used DEFY wood cleaner and brightener. Photos attached (it was raining so outside boards are wet). I am wondering if I should use TWP on the porch as I see nothing listed about using it on Mahogany. Also, I read that 'Natural' is like a cedarwood color? I want it to have the rich Mahogany color. I see no reviews or comments about TWP and Mahogany wood. Thank you!!

      You can use TWP on Mahogany wood. Most use the Rustic color but you could also use the Natural.

    I have a cape cod house with 3 sides finished with Grade A Canadian White Cedar Shingles. I would like to better understand the difference between the two products: 1500 and 200 series. Also, can these be used interchangeably? I would be interested in either clear cedar and cape cod grey colors.

          The TWP 1500 is allowed in MA and sorry, that does not come in any gray colors. The 200 does come in Slate Gray and you can use that for the wood but you cannot "mix" it with the 1500 Series. The 100 Series is not allowed in MA.

          The 200 series is defined for shakes and shingles specifically. Has a heavier body that helps the shingles from drying out.

    We applied twp200 earlier this summer and in some spots wayer is being versus repelled. Is is ok to apply a second coat just before winter sets in?

      It would be better to apply a light coat next Spring if needed.

    We are currently in the process of sanding because the wood was worn and I wanted to make sure I got rid of all the black penofin stain. I plan to use the Safe strip stripper on areas that are hard to sand and then brighten with the TWP restore a deck brightener. Does this process sound like it will work for TWP stain?

    We are sanding a 7 year old cedar deck in Northwest Washington. It had Penofin red label stain and turned dark, dark gray.

    Do you recommend a product to strip hard to get to areas? If so, which one?

    Do you recommend a cleaner and brightener after sanding?

    What TWP stain do you recommend?

    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.
