TWP Two-Toned Deck Stain Tips

TWP and Two-Toned Decks

There are several advantages to having a TWP Wood Stain two-toned deck. Being able to match or blend the deck in better with the house with a TWP Semi-Solid Pro-Series in one of the 30 Custom Colors and using one of the TWP semi-transparent colors for the flooring or horizontal areas that keeps those areas more natural with a stain that shows all the wood grain.

When TWP Semi-Solid Colors are applied properly on vertical surfaces they are extremely durable and can last a long time. On a vertical surface, semi-solid stains can last up to 4-7 years and may only need to be cleaned occasionally. A properly done two-tone deck can really add appeal and value to your property. It may take a little more time and labor initially but as some deck owners know, the end result can be amazing.

For a Semi-Solid Stain on the verticals/railings, we suggest the TWP Semi-Solid Pro-Series. For a semi-transparent stain for the flooring/horizontals look at using the TWP 100 Series or the TWP 1500 Series.

Advantages of having a TWP Stain two-toned deck

  • The ability to color match the railings and vertical wood to blend with the color of the house by using TWP Semi-Solid Pro-Series
  • The deck floor/horizontal wood is stained with TWP in a semi-transparent stain so it still has that natural wood appearance. 
  • TWP Semi-Solid Pro-Series stains on vertical wood/railings can last 2-3 times longer on vertical surfaces or up to 7 years with little to no maintenance.
  • Future coatings typically consist of cleaning and reapplying a semi-transparent stain to the horizontal floors every 2-3 years.
  • Visually a beautiful two-color look to your exterior wood deck.

This two-toned stained deck has the substructure stained the same color as the house. The deck was stained with TWP Series 100 101 Cedar Tone

I used black walnut TWP 1500 on my outdoor table with the deck beneath the coppertone 1500.  I want to sand down parts of the cedar table  and add some of the coppertone and perhaps also parts  a more reddish color to other parts in order to blend the table in but still contrast with the deck. I do have some other semi transparent stain I could use for the reddish color, but am thinking that might be a problem with the TWP 1500 series I already used. So I assume I sand down the parts I want to change, clean and brighten and then add the stain? 

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
