    Steve, the TWP is not to be top coated. It is an all inclusive stain.

    I am making a beam with several pieces of DSS grade southern yellow pine (not pressure treated) which will be wrapped in Cedar. I want to be able to get a very long life out of this build up. What version of stain would you recommend and how many coats would be required.

    is your deck stain a one step stain, or after staining does it have to be topcoated

    Jim, the 1500 is a low VOC stain for all states. It also contains a higher amount of solids.

    What is the difference in the 100 and 1500 series stain? I know not much about paints/stains and would like to understand what makes the 1500 series better than 100 series.

    Jim, I would prep the wood with the Gemini Restore Kit then re stain with the TWP 1516 for a slightly longer life.

    I live in Michigan and have white pine log siding on my house. it was stained in 2009 with TWP 116-1. There is black appearing in several areas. What should I use to clean and which stain would work best.

    After you sue the stripper you should use a wood brightener to neutralize. Once the Behr stain is gone, you can apply the TWP.

    I live in Charlotte, NC, and am sanding off a flaky Behr finish with 80 grit orbital sander. The wood is pressure treated pine, is 6 years old and in good condition. I plan on using a light stripper to get some of the previous pigment out of the crevices. What finish and other prep procedures do you reccommend?

    For NJ you must use the TWP 1500 as the 100 is not compliant there.

    Becky, either would work but I would probably go with the 1500 for this.

    Thanks for the fast response! Do you have a recommendation for 100 vs 1500? I'm having troubles trying to determine the difference between the two.

    Yes newer wood needs to be prepped with the Gemini Kit then stained with just 1 coat for the first time.

    We have a 1600 sq foot pressure treated pine porch that needs to be stained. It wraps around the house, so it has both northern and southern exposure, sun and shade. We live in Iowa, so there will be snow. Would the 100 or 1500 work best? Also, we built it 5 months ago, would it still be considered "new" wood and only need one coat? Thank you!

    WGJACKSON, Both the 100 and the 1500 can be used in Georgia. You would need to remove the OneTime first with a stain stripper such as the Restore-A-Deck Stripper followed by a the Brightener.

    IS THE TWP 100 SERIES AVAILABLE FOR GEORGIA YET? IF NOT, HOW WOULD THE 1500 SERIES PERFORM ON A 10 YEARS OLD DECK LAST CLEANED AND STAINED WITH "ONE TIME" SEVEN YEAR CHESTNUT COLOR. IT DOES NOT WORK AT ALL. MY DECK SPLIT AND PEELED IN 6 MONTHS.

    I would go with the 1500 Series, Make sure to prep with the Gemini Restore Kit first.

    Which TWP series is best for my new (8 month old) 450SF pine deck near Houston? The deck has a eastern exposure and is halfway under a mature oak tree.

    M. David,

    You can use either depending on your state VOC laws. Only 1 coat for Mahogany wood. Due to your wood type, Mahogany needs to be reapplied more frequently then woods such as cedar and pressure treated pine.
