    I have a Mahogany farmers porch that was treated about 5 years ago with Penofin Brazilian Rosewood Oil. I used DEFY wood cleaner and brightener. Photos attached (it was raining so outside boards are wet). I am wondering if I should use TWP on the porch as I see nothing listed about using it on Mahogany. Also, I read that 'Natural' is like a cedarwood color? I want it to have the rich Mahogany color. I see no reviews or comments about TWP and Mahogany wood. Thank you!!

      You can use TWP on Mahogany wood. Most use the Rustic color but you could also use the Natural.

    I have a cape cod house with 3 sides finished with Grade A Canadian White Cedar Shingles. I would like to better understand the difference between the two products: 1500 and 200 series. Also, can these be used interchangeably? I would be interested in either clear cedar and cape cod grey colors.

          The TWP 1500 is allowed in MA and sorry, that does not come in any gray colors. The 200 does come in Slate Gray and you can use that for the wood but you cannot "mix" it with the 1500 Series. The 100 Series is not allowed in MA.

          The 200 series is defined for shakes and shingles specifically. Has a heavier body that helps the shingles from drying out.

    We applied twp200 earlier this summer and in some spots wayer is being versus repelled. Is is ok to apply a second coat just before winter sets in?

      It would be better to apply a light coat next Spring if needed.

      We stained following TWP recommendations last august. It actually looked good most of the winter but now is graying and fading on the boards and the railings. We applied one coat as recommended at the time.
      What do you recommend to get it looking vibrant again? There was a lot of prep time to get it ready. I hate to have it looking bad so soon and can’t stand the thought nor expense of staring over.
      Thank you!

        New wood last year? It is normal to have to reapply another coat the second year for new wood. Just lightly clean and reapply one coat to the horizontals.

    We are currently in the process of sanding because the wood was worn and I wanted to make sure I got rid of all the black penofin stain. I plan to use the Safe strip stripper on areas that are hard to sand and then brighten with the TWP restore a deck brightener. Does this process sound like it will work for TWP stain?

    We are sanding a 7 year old cedar deck in Northwest Washington. It had Penofin red label stain and turned dark, dark gray.

    Do you recommend a product to strip hard to get to areas? If so, which one?

    Do you recommend a cleaner and brightener after sanding?

    What TWP stain do you recommend?

    I should add the house is 14 years old - if it was ever stained/sealed it was probably only done when constructed and not since.

    I just bought a log cabin in the mountains of NC - 4500 ft elevation so harsh environment. The logs are in great shape but the exterior finish is not. It's hard to tell if it was ever stained/sealed - if so, I have no idea what was used. Couple of questions:
    1. Which, if any, TWP product is best for this application?
    2. How should the house be cleaned/prepped?
    3. Can you stain over chinking, then go back and repaint chinking grey? If so, what paint would adhere to the new stain? If not how should I go about this - just stain around the chinking?
    4. What product do you recommend to fill checks in the logs? Before or after staining?
    5. What is the recommended application technique for log houses given the situation discussed above?

    Thanks!
    -Dave

      1. TWP 1500 Series.
      2. Would need to see pictures.
      3. You cannot paint over the TWP, the paint may not adhere. Best to stain around the chinking.
      4. Do not fill checks. Just leave as is. Filler will not work or blend with the sain.
      5. Stain pads or brushes.

    Hello, looking for best option for 2 year old Sienna Brown pressure treated deck. Never coated with anything else just the brown pressure treatment. A few spots of mold and mildew. Should I do 100 series or 1500? Also I’m in Canada, is there a shipping charge?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 07/04/2020
      For Canada, you would need the TWP 200 Series. The 100 and 150 are not allowed there. Yes, you have to pay the shipping to Canada.

    I have power washed and sanded my deck, but there are places where the pine sap is oozing out. It gummed up the sander a few times. Can I just stain it? I plan to power wash it again when I get done sanding. I think I want to use a gray stain, what color do you recommend? I live in Missouri.

      Let it dry out longer until sap stops
    • We will reply to your comment shortly

      You can stain over the sap but when the sap dries it will be white in color. The gray colors will work.

        I think the deck is at least 3-5 years old, not sure because we just moved here. Should I do 2 coats of Cape cod gray? And do I need to use a cleaner on it if I power washed it? How long does it need to dry after power wash before staining?

          TWP Stains · 06/30/2020
          Just one coat of the Cape Cod Gray. Use the Gemini Restore Kit for prep. Wait 48 hours to stain
