    I would use the TWP 100 for Michigan. Make sure to prep the deck with a deck cleaner and wood brightener first.

    We installed an 8 x 30 deck made out of treated lumber [pine] in March, 2012 [4 months ago]. This is on the north side of our home in southern Michigan. It gets 1/2 sun; 1/2 shade. I see your TWP 100 is rated #1 and TWP 1500 is rated #3 in consumer reports. Which one would be the better product for us to use on this new wood? Sally

    You should use both a wood cleaner and a wood brightener to prep the wood after the sanding.

    I sanded my PT deck with 20 then 36 grit paper. Should I do anything else to the deck before staining for better penetration?

    You can use one stain and color but it will look different. Cedar cannot look like mahogany.

    Thanks

    Hi,
    I have a new deck that is mahogany deck with cedar wrapped rails.
    Is there ONE stain/sealant that will bring out the natural color of each wood type? Or do I need to use two different stains?
    Thanks,
    Geoff

    Unopened a few years. Opened, less then 1 year. All TWP Stains are semi-transparent.

    What is the shelf life of the 100 series. I will probably not need the 5-gallon pail, but it seems to be the better deal.

    Also - Do you have semi-transparent stains?

    In Richmond, VA you have to use the 1500 Series ans the 100 is not compliant there.

    Cal Red is a lighter red, Cedartone is a brownish cedar color, and Pecan is a little darker. Sorry but we personally do not have any dealers in your area.

    You can use one stain for both wood types. I would look at the TWP 1500 Series in one of the lighter tints.

    I have a 15 year old deck that has been properly cleaned and prepped for staining. I live in Richmond, VA and the deck is in full sun from 11am until 5pm every day. We have a lot of humidity in the Summer and above average rainfall throughout the year with mild snow every year or two. Which Series would be better for my deck - 100 or 1500? Also, I am looking at Cedartone, California Redwood or Pecan but it is almost impossible to choose a color from a website. Which color is darkest? Does California Redwood have a lot of red in it? Lastly, is there a retail store in Virginia that carries your products?

    TWP 150 Series. It unfortunately cannot be shipped to the 4 counties of LA if you happen to live there. Nothing can.

    Hello,
    I am planning to re-finish a Redwood deck. We live in southern California and the deck is exposed to full sun and extreme heat (100+) most of the summer. Which of your products will be a better choice?

    Coverages are on each product page as it varies on the series.

    What is the coverage per gallon? I would like to have this for a potential insurance claim.

    I would not apply the 1500 series right now but rather wait 6+ months. It will adhere better.

    I just refinished my deck with 100 series honeytone a week ago. I did it 2 years ago and most of it was weathered off the wood within 1 year. Could I apply a coat of the 1500 series over the newly applied 100 series to make it last longer?

    Must choose the Rustic color in either the 1500 Series or the 100 Series when staining an exotic hardwood like IPE.
