    We just replaced the top of rails and floor decking on our back deck. The spindles were stained with Cabots Australian Oil but have been sanded down. How long until we should stain this new wood and what product do you recommend? We live in North Carolina and we have neighbors who recommend TWP 200 yet I notice it is not promoted for decks. I am really struggling on which stain to use and what are the pros and cons? 100, 200 or 1500? Our criteria is for ease of application, looks good, but most importantly long lasting and protects the new deck. What would work the best? Thanks for any guidance you can give.

    Ready to seal/stain a brand new cedar deck. We are in Nashville TN. What are your recommendations for the best product and application for holding up in cold winters and humid summers? thanks!

    My 20-yr old deck was pressure washed with bleach and water last week. It was originally stained when first built by the builder, but has not been stained in at least 8 years, only pressure washed 2-3 times in the past before this fourth time. It is treated wood (pine) and gray. Do I need to use any additional cleaner/brightener and can I use the TWP or do I need to go with a solid stain? If TWP, the 100 or 1500? Also, how long after it's rained can I stain the deck? Thank you!

      Clean and brighten for prep with the Gemini Restore Kit. Use the 1500 Series. What for 48 hours after rain or prep to stain.

    We are getting ready to restrain our house for the very first time. The sun hits the front of it all day, so it is faded and will absorb more than the rest of the house. What series do you recommend we use? And the color is darker than we like, so we're hoping a lighter stain will help with the color. Any suggestions appreciated.

        We live in Duffield, VA. The lighter picture is how the wood looks in the front where the sun hits all the time. The darker ones are the side and back. The last picture of the front of the house is when we first stained it. The wood siding is Southern Pine.

          That is a solid stain in the first picture. TWP cannot be used over this and you would have to power sand to remove.

    Many years ago I use 201 on my older cedar siding. What product do you recommend I use to stain my cedar siding? Also, should I apply one or two coats as I have not stained the house in 5 years.

    Why do you recommend the 100 for a new deck if the 1500 is new and improved? We have a new, pressure treated pine deck, seasoned for approximately 1 year and ready for stain. We also live in Texas. Thank you.

      Better penetration with the 100.

        So it is ok for a new deck even though the website's instructions for prepping a new deck say use 100?
        • We will reply to your comment shortly
          TWP Stains · 04/27/2020
          Typo in previous reply. 100 penetrates better.

    I stained my deck last year and thinking of an additional coat this year. Too soon, and if not what cleaner just for dirt before reapplying?

      If you add a maintenance coat you will need to use the Gemini Restore Kit for prep. Only do it if needed.

    I stained my heart redwood deck 5 years ago right after I built it with California Redwood TWP1500. Can I just clean and brighten without stripping if I use the same stain again?

        Ok thanks. How long after cleaning and brightening do I have to restain typically? Is it within days, or weeks?

          Stain within 2 weeks of prep.

    We installed a pressure treated deck in upstate NY last fall. We will be ready to stain the deck in 1-2 months after we clean and allow dry time. We don’t like red or orangy stain colors. If we like the early american and special walnut colors from minwax - what stain color do you recommend and do you have any pointers.

    Thanks!

    We purchased a home that used TWP 205 on the deck and pergola. Should we stay with the 200 series or use the 1500 series? We are located in Atlanta Georgia.

      Staying with the 205 is the easiest thing to do.

    Stripping a 20yr old Pressure treated Pine deck and Cedar picket fence(I think). Will be using your RAD stripper / brightener. This is in Missouri I am thinking I should use 1500 since it has a higher solids. Am I thinking correctly? Considering Pecan tint.

    I stained my deck last summer with Defy Extreme Clear. Some areas didn’t get covered real well. Can I reapply another application of clear right away?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 03/09/2020
      The TWP cannot be applied over the Defy. The Defy would have to be stripped off fully first.

    I just stain my deck last year with Defy Extreme. It doesn’t look like it covered very well. I would like to try the TWP stain. Is it too early to stain TWP or should I wait a period of time. Jim

    60' x 8' wraparound covered cedar deck. Three years ago contractor put 2 coats of a product only designed to be one coat. He ended up stripping and sanding the whole deck to remove the "stickY" result of his mistake. We then put water based and expensive clear coat. It has not protected wood and I ended 6 hours of pressure washing the deck which looks very good now.

    Can I put your product on that surface as it is now? We are in state of Washington. Thanks

      The TWP cannot be applied over a different brand or coating. If you removed all of the last coatings then yes, you can use the TWP. If the old coating is still thee, then you will need to fully remove it first.

    2 years ago i stain a new deck with Australian timber oil using the 19400 series which goes on as latex and dries as a oil finish and has not held up well. I would like to re-do with TWP 100 series. if the deck is cleaned with restore a deck will i be able to put the TWP 100 on?
    Thanks,
    Bill

      Hello,

      No, you will have to fully remove the Cabot first. Strip and or sand.

    For a new weathered redwood deck, is 1500 recommended or would you recommend TWP100 if my state allows it and would you recommend RAD or Gemini to clean and brighten? Is the redwood tint very subtle as I want to just highlight the natural wood coloring.
