    How resistant is the TWP 100 to scratches? I have 2 dogs. Is it a solid or semi- solid stain?

    I would wait until Spring, prepping first with the Gemini Restore Kit.

    Ely, I would suggest the 100 Series for this. Make sure to prep first so the wood is clean and free of old coatings or dirt.

    I have a new PT pine deck built last year and was stained with TWP 200, 60 days later. I live in GA. I would like to apply a second coat, how long do I have to wait?

    I live in the NC mtns. We have both uncovered and covered decking.....standard treated wood about 6 years old. The exposed deck area builds up a fair amount of mildew. Which of your products would you recommend for the decking and railings?

    Sorry I did mean to say the 1500 as that is compliant for Northern VA and the 100 is not.

    Durastain is not easy to remove. I would ask Wolman as to what they suggest to remove their stain.

    Any stain strippers you would recommend? Also, just curious about why you've recommended TWP 100 over the 1500?

    I forgot to mention in my previous post that the cabin is currently sided with T1-11 plywood.

    We would suggest the TWP 100 Series for this. You can order small sample bottles from the website to test to color.

    For you to use the TWP you would need to remove the Wolman Durastain from the wood. You cannot apply TWP on top of it. This would need to be donw with a strain stripper and or sanding. Cleaning alone with TSP will not remove Wolman Durastain.

    Will be re-staining our cabin in Northern WI the Spring/early summer of 2014. What product would you recommend?

    - cabin is in a clearing, so lots of natural light
    - couple of walls have pretty direct eastern/southern exposure
    - previously stained with a cedar colored wolman dura stain (nearly 100% certain) about 5-6 years ago
    - I'm planning to clean with a TSP/bleach/water solution. Any other surface prep recommendations?
    - We haven't selected a color yet, will be cedar or a darker color. Do you have swatch books?

    dhrenfro, you need to strip, not clean the deck. The Gemini Kit does not contain a stripper. You would need the Restore A Deck Stripper and wood brightener. You may also need to sand as you have a build up of stain. You amounts are very low. Need a total sq. footage with flooring, rails, steps, etc to give an idea.

    I am considering your product for my residence deck. Structure is 1400sqft PT pine plus railings and 3 three-riser steps - one stretching 15ft, built 6 years ago. PPG SunProof was the original coating, then Flood WUV. I am treating now with 'Wet&Forget' to kill algae that seems to have come in the can with the Flood. I am located in NC under a lot of oak trees. I want to do a 'honey gold' to 'cedar' color; current color is a darker cedar. It appears I will need two of the Gemini cleaning kits, 8 Gal. 100 series stain. What is your recommendation 100 vs. 1500 and is my estimate too low on product? Thank you in advance for your assistance.

    Hi . . . i just stained my NC mountain deck with the 1500 honeytone . . . maybe I should have used 100? . . . looks like it penetrates better . . . SO, I still have another railing with a deck of oak boards. SHould I switch to 100? Can I redo with 100 after a few years on the first deck, which is PT pine . .

    Does your answer apply to the 3 questions?

    Hey there,
    I just ordered my sample. If I was to buy 5 or more individual gals of the 1500, can I still get the free shipping? They are easier for me to work from than a giant 5 gal bucket...
    Thanks,
    Patrick

    Single gallons will not ship free no matter the quantity. Just 5 gallon pails.

    Hello...we live in Tennessee, our cedar deck is full sun from 9 am to sundown. Very harsh light and heat. Deck is worn, 4 years old, no stain remaining. Which would be best here...100 or 1500? Also, where can I find info on what Restore A Deck is made of? Thanks much.
