    Either would work. You should wait a until Spring to stain. TWP does not penetrate new wood very well. Just one coat on new wood. Make sure to prep with a cleaner and a wood brightener.

    I am installing a new pressure treated pine deck in Charlotte, NC. Which series would you recommend TWP100 series or TWP1500 series. Looking for a slightly darker color for Pressure treated pine decking.

    Both the 100 and 1500 are pretty much equal when it comes to longevity. Meaning you will need to redo every 2-3 years when choosing either. Darker stain colors though will last longer then lighter when it comes to UV protection.

    From earlier posts I will let the wood cure for a month, then clean and brighten, then apply only one coat.
    Question is which stain and why? I like the idea of more solids for UV protection, but also want to make sure that translates to better durability and longer time between treatments.
    Also want to know why to choose one over the other as I may find a color in one of the stains \"must have\" and I want to know what I am sacrificing if I choose purely based on color.

    I would use two coats since it is about 1 year old now. 3 gallons should be enough.

    Our pressure-treated deck was built in upstate New York in November 2011. If we clean/brighten this fall and stain with TWP1500, do we need one coat (for a \"new\" deck) or two coats?

    Need to cover about 275 sq. feet. How many gallons of stain?

    Most use the TWP 116 Rustic for exotic hardwoods.

    I just finished installing a new deck with ipe on the border and grappa in the field. I want to use the TWP 100, but not sure on a color due to the two different woods. The idea is to enhance their natural colors and maintain the contrast. Thoughts? Thanks in advance.

    1500 Series would be best.

    TWP does not have any \"tan\" colors. The Dark oak is a very dark brown. The closest probably would the the 1501 Cedartone. It is a brownish/cedar color.

    You should let the wood season for at least a couple of months then clean and brighten the wood. Only 1 coat on new wood.

    Which stain would you recommend for a deck part shade and part sub in Chicago suburbs? Eith 1500 or 200? I notice the 200 has more solids but I am not sure why that is important. Thanks!

    I\'m looking for some advice on semi transparent colors of the TWP 1500 series. Have a deck that gets alot of sun and has been stripped of old bad sealer and is now looking like new again. Wanted to use a color that leans more towards the brown or tan tones vs. cedar/red/orange. I dont want it too dark, but something that might give a little color and the needed protection from greying. Thx.

    I am about to put on some new cedar decking. How long should I wait until I stain? Also, which series/color would you recommend? Looking for a redder color, and in MN so we get the extremes for weather.

    I have a 12 year old redwood deck that has full sun southern exposure. Temps range from 25 to 107. Which stain would be best?

    I would stay with the TWP 101. Why switch if you are happy?!

    I\'ve cleaned and sealed my 12 year old, Michigan, wolmanized, deck myself, every 2 to 3 years with TWP 101 and have been very happy with the results. I had a quote this year to have it done. The company that quoted the job was really pushing the Stormshield, even though his flyer advertised that he used the TWP 100. Is the Stormshield a better product? Should I switch to it or maybe the TWP 1500? Confused...

    I would use the TWP 1500 Series in the Honeytone color.

    New wood only needs 1 coat of TWP. Most likely you would still need 2 gallons.
