    Vince, use the 100 Series. The 200 is designed for shakes and shingle siding and roofing. Prep first with the Gemini Restore Kit.

    I have a 25 year old dock in Missouri. looks as if it has never been stained before. Very old, weathered and grey. Not sure whether to use the 100 or the 200? Thanks.

    Edward, look at the TWP stains, clean and brighten the wood for prep with the Gemini Restore Kit. Stain every 2-3 years by repeating the prepping process.

    Hav a house 24 feet on pilings with a treated lumber deck 3 years old on the gulf coast of Mississippi. What Stain should I use and how often should I retreat it?

    Larry, You can use the 200 Series for this. Typically reapply every 2-3 years.

    I live in marsh country along the southeast coast where houses are raised. I have treated hardwood horizontal slats as siding on the garage level that are exposed to the elements. I also have raised decks. I have been using TWP 200 series clear as I like the look of the sealant. Is this the right product to use. Also when I used to use Thompson's water seal on previous houses before I found your product, I would re-apply every 2 years. How often do you have to re-apply the Series 200 to keep the wood sealed from the elements.

    Since this is rough wood I would suggest the TWP 1500 Series for this.

    We just built a "tiki" pontoon boat that is going to be permanently moored in salt water in South Florida. All of the lumber used to build the tiki structure is rough cut cedar and cedar siding. With our strong sun, would the cedartone 100 or 1500 series protect the wood and color better?

    Traci, since you have two different types of siding it would be best to use the 1500 Series for this.

    Trying to figure out whether to use the 1500 or the 200 on my cedar siding/cedar shake house. House was built and stained in 1998 and hasn't been updated since. Bottom of house is cedar siding, and top is cedar shake.

    For your area you should use the 100 Series. Prep first with the Gemini Restore Kit. This article will help explain newer wood: http://www.twpstainhelp.com/prepping-new-wood-for-twp-stains/

    Leon, the 100 Series as long as your state is not on the low VOC list otherwise the 1500. Use Gemini Restore Kit for the prep.

    We have a new pine deck - 6 months old. Which would you recommend the 100 series or 1500 series. Deck is in full sun most of day.

    TWP is supposed to weather for 4-6 months, than prepped correctly for the prep with the Gemini Restore Kit.

    Pre-staining may hinder the results. Sanding, while removing mill glaze, smooths the surface additionally, preventing proper penetration.

    I've got about 550 sq ft of smooth cedar T&G soffit and 700 sq ft of cedar deck, what should I use and when? I'd like to pre-stain the soffit, can I sand it to get the mill glaze off and pre-stain?

    Lighter colors mean less UV protection from fading then darker colors. Honeytone will fade the fastest, Make sure to prep with the Gemini Restore Kit first. Use the 1500 Series. I would suggest getting some samples from the site to test.

    What product do you recommend for treated deck? Location: Northeastern Iowa; built in 2010; MicroPro™/AC2 treated wood from Menards; NEVER been treated/sealed; deck is on north side about 10' off ground of one story ranch walkout so 3/4 of deck in sun majority of the day. So that the wood grain is visible, we would like a minimal color/tint (Cedartone or Honeytone) but with maximum protection. Recommendations? Thank you!

    I live in Tennessee and have 2 pressure treated pine decks. Pool deck is 2 years old and never stained, full sun. Will be professionally cleaned in 2 weeks. The other is 5 years old, part sun, part shade, never sealed. Also will be professionally cleaned in 2 weeks. I would like them to look as natural as possible. also concerned about pool chlorine on the pool deck. Suggestions?
