    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?

    Possibly. It really depends on the wood and how weathered and dry the wood is. If very gray and dirty then you need to remove more of the wood cells. This may result in raising of the grain a little.

    Hi again. Just wondering if the Restore a Deck Kit will raise the wood grain. Thanks for your help!

    I would use a stain stripper on the rough cut wood followed by a wood brightener.

    After sanding you should use a wood cleaner and a wood brightener to prep. The Gemini Restore A Deck Kit would be ideal. I would look at the Honeytone or Natural color. Typically needs to be redone every 2-3 years.

    I still need some help. The deck should be fine, easy to clean and re-stain. The question I have, is the board and batten PINE siding is ROUGH CUT AND VERY PORES. This would be nearly impossible to get rid of old product. I can pressure wash and let dry. Sanding and stripping would take weeks and change the appearance (rustic) of the house. Sorry to be a bother, please advise your thoughts are very appreciated.

    Thank You Bill

    We have a 2 year old cedar deck that is on a southern exposure. We\'ve got Cabot 3000 on it, which didn\'t last a year. I have completely sanded it and would like to use twp 1500 on it. Which color would give me the most natural finish, and do I have to prep the deck in any other way? Also, how long would should I expect the finish to last? We live in northern Wisconsin.

    Wait a month or two before staining. Do not sand but use a wood cleaner and a wood brightener to prep. Do not use a wood filler!

    As long as you clean and brighten the wood to prep you should be okay. If you have a lot of the old stain left then you should strip it off as well. Either the 100 or the 1500 would work well.

    We just installed a pressure treated deck in NJ. Most of the deck is in full sun for 70% of the day. How long should I wait before staining? Do I need to sand before staining? Should I fill in small cracks in wood and spaced where wood joins before staining?

    Thanks for your help. Also. 100 or 1500 for best performance?

    hello: I built my pine board & batten home w/ceder deck 6 yrs ago. The deck is covered. The house & deck need to be refinished. The deck is very washed out, the house is better but still needs to be redone. I used a Valspar product originally but I don\'t know if it was a oil or water based product. The customer service person @ farm & fleet said since it is that old I could use either. Is this true, please advise the best product. The TWP brand 100 or 1500? or is the a better brand.

    Lattice is pretty absorbent so I would let dry fro a week or two then lightly clean. Light brown would probably be the Cedartone in the 1500 Series. It is a browny cedar color.

    New cedar lattice privacy screen in San Antonio TX, morning sun, part shade in afternoon - how long do I wait to stain? Does the cedar have to be cleaned? Would prefer a light brown color to compliment Trex Woodland Brown deck- your suggestions please? thanks.

    You should let the wood dry for at least a month or two then clean and brighten with the Gemini Restore A Deck Kit. Only one coat is needed for new wood. I would look at the TWP 1515 Honeytone for the lightest color.

    Sorry but we do not have anything that matches the Minwax.

    We just completed installation of a new deck using treated pressure treated wood (tags on wood acquired through K-1 indicated Hixson Lumber, pressure treated using micronized copper azole). We want to stain with a more natural transparent product vs. any colors. Which series (100 or 1500) and product would you recommend. We live in Louisville, KY and deck gets full sun for 80% of the day. Also your comments on sealing the deck.

    Do you have a comparable color to Minwax Provincial 211 stain? I want to use the TWP 100 on my new cypress garage carriage doors and the porvincial color seems to have a slight green tint to it when used on cypress that I really like. Thanks!

    I would look at the TWP 1500 Series in Honeytone for the lightest color. No dealers but we can ship to you.

    Hello - I just had a 670ft cedar deck built and I live in Washington state. I like a lighter color or not much color at all, don\'t want deck to look orange! Which of your stains would you recommend 100 vs 1500? Also, do you have any dealers in the greater Seattle/Tacoma area? Hate to wait for a UPS shipment.
    Thank you!!!!
