    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.

    TWP are semi-transparent colors that do not mask the wood grain but highlight or enhance the wood grain. You must have a tint/color in the stain if you want to prevent UV graying.

    We live in the Seattle area where it\'s very rainy and we live around lots of trees. Our cedar deck gets afternoon sun, when it\'s around. We just stripped our 10 yr old deck and brightened it. Which of your stain products would you recommend for this area? For color we like the look of natural cedar when it\'s wet but don\'t want an orange deck. What color would you recommend?

    Our new pine pressure treated deck is 240 square feet [no rails or railings]; on the TWP 100, does it require one or two coats? Trying to decipher whether to order 1 or 2 gallons. Also, are the stains transparent, semi transparent, or solid colors? We are trying to just seal the wood in it\'s natural color.

    Hi - we have a 5-month old pine treated lumber deck and will be ordering the cleaner/brightener and the TWP 100 stain - my question is are these stain color choices transparent, semi-transparent, or solid colors? We really just want something to seal the wood and not change the color or hide the woodgrain. Thank you - Sally

    TWP 1500 would work and is compliant for Northern Virginia.

    Which stain and treatment would you recommend? I have a cabin in the woods in Northern Virginia. The deck is pressure treated and submitted to mostly shade all day. Because of the shade (and lack of treatment) it continues to readily grow mold and algae. In addition, the deck is completely covered by tulip poplars that shed sticky nectar which molds and stains black almost as instantly as it rains. I will be sanding it before treating.

    All new wood needs to be cleaned and prepped. I would wait until Fall than clean and brighten with the Gemini Restore-A-Deck Kit. I would then use TWP 1500 Series in a light color such as Honeytone or Natural

    We just put down a new cedar deck and would like to bring out the colors of the wood while protecting it. We live in upstate new York and would like to know what is the best stain to get and how long do you wait before applying anything to it? Also should we use something to clean and prep it before staining and should it be sanded?

    I have replaced my 30 year old cedar decking with EverGrain Weathered Wood composite. Which stain would you recommend for the remaining cedar benches, posts and trim boards, which are still in good condition?
