    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?

      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

      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?

          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

      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?

      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.

    I used Redwood TWP 100 5 years ago to stain my new Log Home. I have had good performance and want to use the Redwood again but afraid it will be too dark. Any suggestions? TWP is a great stain. It's a good value!!!

      Just prep with the Gemini Restore Kit and stain with the same color.

    Hi, I am in Oklahoma and we just installed rough cut cedar post. Can we stain immediately and does it need to be prepped? Also are there any place to buy in Oklahoma city?

    I have an 20+year old deck we have used Thompsons water sealer on in the past. Last year I stained it as will with their tinted water seal. I live in Central Oklahoma. One deck is full sun all day. The rest are covered. What do you recommend to clean and which series is best to protect?

      The TWP 100, 200, or 1500 Series will not work on Bamboo.

    I have a bleached bamboo fence that I wish to keep the same color. It screens the AC units so is outside. I have stained the wood with a Sherman Williams weather proof stain. Please advise correct non-coloring sealant. Thanks
