    Hi, I have new steps and a small deck area just built from pine. I live in GA and these steps get pummeled by the sun for most of the day. What do I use? Thank you.

    Use the 100 Series. see this about new wood:

    I used two a couple of years ago, I can't remember if it was 100 series cedar tone or 1500 cedar tone. Is the color the same in both these products and if they are not, which one is darker.

    They are not the same and the 1501 is darker.

    I stained a portion of my fence with TWP cedartone natural, but after seeing the resulting color, I chose to stain the balance of the fence with TWP Rustic. How should I proceed to restain the cedartone natural with the Rustic?

    To make sure that it matches, it would be best to remove the cedartone and start over. Use the Restore A Deck Stripper kit for this.

    I have a 4 year old deck and have previously used Olympic Maximum stain/sealant. I have had to recoat each year because it has peeled off. What steps do I need to take and do I use the 100 or 1500? Will I need to do one coat or two? I live in Kentucky with cold winters and hot humid summers.

    You will need to remove the Olympic before using the TWP. Stripping and possibly sanding will bee needed. Brighten the wood after removal. apply two coats of the TWP 100 Series.

    Preparing to clean/stain 30 year old cedar siding shingles. Buildings are on the North Oregon Coast. Should I use 200 or 1500?

    You could use either for this with excellent results.

    I live in Raleigh, North Carolina. I have just completed cleaning, stripping, brightening and staining a 1000 square foot, 25 year old deck (last stained 6 years ago and in deteriorated condition) made of pressure treated pine. The stain used was TWP 100 Clear. The wood looks great with the grain clearly showing. However the color is now a darkish brown. I am adding a set of steps of Cox pressure treated kiln dried pine which is a very blond (new wood) color. I plan to stain the stairs in a month. What stain and color would you advise to most closely match the existing deck color? Thanks for any advise you can provide.

    I am confused to your question? There is no color in the clear nor is their UV protection. Might be best to get some samples to test for this. We have them on our site.

    Live in Ohio. I am building a deck of kiln dried cherry. I'd like a penetrating oil stain, best possible. Very much prefer clear as most stains obscure rather than enhance grain. What do you recommend?

    I live in WA. State, I am stripping my deck of the Restore product that failed miserably. Which product do you recommend 100 or 1500.

    Use the 1500. Make sure that all of the Deck Restore is removed.

    Can you use a Wagner airless sprayer for TWP paint and if you can would you use more or less stain.

    You can use a sprayer, but you should still apply the TWP at the correct rate per gallon. You may waste some stain when spraying.

    I have a deck made of raw white fir deck that has aged 6 months. I am thinking the 1500 rustic and would like to use a pump sprayer. Any suggestions. The deck has a roof made of the same with a metal top.

    If you use a pump sprayer, you will need to back brush to ensure it soaks in and is applied evenly.

    I have used TWP 101 cedartone two years ago. I have cleaned deck and would like to use TWP 1501 series with lower voc's. Will this be compatible or will it peel off. Thanks

    Ddi you use the Gemini Restore Kit for the prep? That would be the best way to prep.
