    Sorry about previous question. I had already decided 100 but am trying to determine which color of the 100 line would best simulate fairly new pressure treated lumber. I like the look of the pressure treated wood when it is new. Would the color "Natural" be best. Does it exist? I thought I saw it (Natural) listed as a color somewhere. If not, which stain TWP 100 color might work best for what I am looking for? Closest to natural without red tones.

    Honeytone is the lightest tint. Golden color.

    Hello: I have a log home, on it I use sikkens log-siding which is fine.
    Big deck at home and at my business...different story, sikkens SRD CEDAR 077 is junk. I'm in the process right now of cleaning/p washing and re-application.
    I am considering switching..there are many options. I need to speak to someone before I make any serious mistakes. I'm ready to order. 412 496 7845 but I need to speak to a professional first.

    I was thinking of ordering a couple of samples stains but thought that someone might help me choose the correct stain. New home from last October. I like the color of pressure treated wood before it begins to fade. Would the natural 100 stain fit the bill or might you have another recommendation?
    Thanks,
    Roy

    Use the 100 series if allowed in your stater otherwise use the 1500.

    We have a deck that is 20 years old and another part that is 4 years old. The older deck is dried out and split but the newer deck is in good shape. We just stripped Wolman's semi transparent stain off. What should we do next and what stain would you suggest TWP 100 or 1500? Most of the deck is in the sun although some is in the shade. We live on a lake,so some of it gets very wet. We left the Wolman's on the verticals and it is supposed to be cedar but is more an orange color. What color would you suggest to match with it?

    Look at the 1530 Natural for this color to blend somewhat with the Wolman.

    I have a 10 year old cedar deck that has just been pressure washed. Which TWP - 100 or 1500 would you recommend? Ease of application is a concern. I have 850 Sq. FT. of decking - would one 5 gallon can be enough product? Also I have 10 stairs of pressure treated wood. I live in Oregon. Can I apply this stain after just press washing or do I need to do something else? I am thinking about the cedar tone.

    Jody, the wood needs to be clean and free of previous coatings. If it is than you can stain. Use the 100 Series and apply 2 coats wet on wet application. For 850 sq. feet you will need 7-10 gallons.

    I have a deck primarily in the sun in Charlottesville, Virginia. Previously used on the deck was Benjamin Moore Arbor coat. In 2 years it looks badly worn in places. I am looking for a light gray/tan - light/medium taupe. What do you recommend? Can you send me a color chart? My address is 794 Jefferson Drive, Palmyra, Va 22963

    TWP does not come in a taupe color. For you to use TWP you would have to sand off the Arborcoat.

    What would be the best color to use on pressure treated wood closest to the natural color? I don't really want to "stain" it to change the color but need the UV protection the clear does not offer. I like the look of natural wood. Thanks.

    Honeytone is the lightest:

    [quote name="Kathy Gahagen"]Our 17 year old pressure treated deck was power washed, and the Cabot semi-solid stain was stripped using Jomax stain & finish deck stripper. I have also sanded using 100 grit to remove any residual finish and smooth raised grain. Which is the best TWP to apply? I'd like a lighter or natural finish but do not want to redo this again any time soon. What is your recommendation? Wood is probably pine. Live in SE USA. Full afternoon sun.

    Why would you recommend the TWP 1500 over 100 for full sun? Just curious the advantages of 1500 over the 100. I had pretty much decided on using the 100 and even tried a couple samples. The deck is about 1/2 in full sun and 1/2 under awning/partial shade. Just want to use the best product for our deck. Thanks again for the help.

    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/

    R Petty:
    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.
