    Chip:
    I have a new pressure treated deck in Key West, FL, that I've let weather for approx. 6 months. The deck gets a lot of sun and is around a pool, so lots of water exposure. Would you recommend 100 or 1500 for this deck? I am planning on using Honeytone, to keep a more natural look. Deck is approx. 2400 sq. ft. How many gallons would you recommend purchasing? Thanks.

    Chip, For this full sun the 1515 Honeytone would be better. Just one coat on this newer wood. 15 Gallons should be enough. This article on new wood is helpful: http://www.twpstainhelp.com/prepping-new-wood-for-twp-stains/

    I finally decided I was going to use TWP but I dont know what to use 100 or 1500. It will be applied to my siding on my house. The entire house is the original wood siding from 1973. Its very rough wood and its located in Oklahoma. I want to pick the best one because I will need about 25 gallons and I want it to last. From what ive read 100 seems to be the best if its allowed in your state, well its allowed in Oklahoma so is that what I should get or tbe 1500?

    Thanks for any input!

    Either would be fine for Ok and vertical siding. The 1500 would probably give a little better UV protection though.

    I live in Western NC int he mountains. I have a 10 year old PT deck floor I wish to stain. I used your stripper to get the old Cabots timber-oil off and have used your brightner. Which stain would be best...100 series or 1500 series? Thanks so much. Jeanie Bollinger

    Use the 100 Series.

    We just moved into a home in Kansas that has a nice deck that was last stained with a solid color stain in 2009. Can we use your 100 to stain our deck? The current color appears to be redwood.

    You cannot use TWP on a solid color.

    Rahul, please read this about new wood:
    http://www.twpstainhelp.com/prepping-new-wood-for-twp-stains/

    TWP is the only one that is a registered EPA wood preservative of the stains you mentioned. It will far exceed the others when it comes to longevity and mold prevention.

    We are building a new home with pressure treated cedar shingles on the siding. We would like to protect the wood, preserve the beautiful brown color, avoid mildew, and have little to no maintenance concerns. We are considering benjamin moore arbor coat, sikkens srd, and twp. Would you please explain the pros/cons between your product and the other two as well as which of the twp products you would recommend for our needs? Many thanks, Rahul

    I am staining a 1 yr old cedar deck for the first time. I want it to look like it does when it is wet with the rich cedar color coming out. I also live in MN and have the sun beating on the deck all day long. Any advice on what the best product would be?

    Closest color would be the Honeytone to a wet look.

    We bought our house a year ago. The previous owner used TWP stain (redwood) on the cedar deck. This past winter really punished the deck. I've cleaned and power washed. Can I stain over the existing TWP with the storm shield and how many coats do you recommend? I want to use the same redwood color.

    You cannot use Storm Shield over TWP. You would want to use TWP again after a good cleaning.

    Is the "natural" color of the TWP 1500 actually "clear" or is it a color?

    Thanks,

    Dave

    No it is tinted:

    TWP is not available in any Big Box store. We can ship to you. You should remove the Cabot with the Restore A Deck Stripper and follow that with the Brightener.

    Hello,

    I'm interested in purchasing TWP 1500 Stain for my deck. Is TWP located in any stores for example: Lowes, Home Depot, or Menards? If not, would I have to purchase it through your company? Also, what would be the best way to prep our deck before we stain? Our deck has been stained once before with Cabot Natural color. Cabot didn't hold up over our harsh winter.

    Thank you,

    Tiffany Fouts

    I live in Illinois, long cold winters and short hot summers. I have a cedar deck, approximately 13 years old that gets full sun and also goes around a pool. How does TWP 1500 hold up to sun and chlorine? Thanks

    Kristen, TWP is fine for sun but chlorine is bleach and bleach can break down the stain.
