VOC (Volatile organic compounds) regulations are changing rapidly across the USA and Canada. Not all of the stains that we sell are compliant for all areas. As it stands 16 US states and Canada have adopted the more stringent 250 regulation:

TWP 100 Series and TWP Semi-Solid Pro-Series is not VOC Compliant for Canada and these USA states and cannot be shipped or used there: California, Colorado, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont, Delaware, District of Columbia, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Northern VA, Pennsylvania, Parts of Arizona, Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, all of Canada.

TWP 1500 Series is compliant for all 50 States but cannot be shipped or used in Canada.

TWP 200 Series is compliant for all 50 States and Canada.

    Did the VOC thing change for the Semi-Solid colors this year?  We are in Illinois and I swear we got a gallon sent here last year.

    I live in Florida and have a 15 year old Trex wraparound covered porch.  It is in good condition with very few stains.  It is just faded and I would like to brighten it up.  What do you recommend?

      You cannot brighen up a Trex deck but you can stain it if you like. Use the TWP Semi-Solid colors.

    Gents, I live in Calif unfortunately, but my cabin is in Nevada; assuming the 100 series is superior to 1500, is there a chance I can ship to Calif, but use it in NV??  (Shipping to the cabin is not an option) Thanks for your time.

    I have a new 1 year old cedar picket fence and want to apply a stain to protect it. Which stain would you recommend? I want to bring the cedar color back out, so would a semi-transparent stain work best?

    Hi, after reading about the slipperiness of affordable composites, my husband and I decided to go with pressure-treated pine deck for an above-ground pool. The area will also be exposed to full sunlight for most of the day. I'd like to go with a gray color. What is your recommendation, and can the product be applied immediately?

    Thanks!

    We want to refinish an OLD gray composite deck.  Want to do it in a gray color.  We are in OH.  Which product should we use in grey. I'm confused.

      Sorry but we do not have a product that can be used on composite and that is allowed in Ohio.

    I rebuilt a back deck a couple of years ago with pressure treated lumber.  The deck gets full sun in the summer - from 9 am till 8 pm, which series should I use?  Zip code 35645

    In the summer of 2017 I built a fence. Waited a few weeks and stained it with TWP 100. I re-applied TWP 100 in 2018 and 2020.

    This fence gets a lot of UV (SW facing, high altitude). Little precipitation but does get wet from irrigation. I was hoping to go two years before reapplying but the wood does seem to be 'drying out' and where irrigation water hits it, it's getting gray. But it doesn't peel which is great.

    I'm looking to re-apply this spring and am wondering what my best choice is.

    Should switch to Semi-Solid? If I do, do I need to strip it first? Can I switch back to TWP 100 or then do I have to strip it? Does the semi-solid start to peel? Should I just stick with TWP 100?

    Thanks,
    -R

      If you switch to semi-solid then yes, strip and brighten for prep. Same if you switch back to the 100 Series. The semi-solids do not peel. You will have better UV protection from fading with the semi-solids. Can you adjust your sprinklers to not hit the fence? That would help.

    Can the 1500 series stain be made in a weathered gray?

      The 1500 Series is not made in a gray color and cannot be.

    I live in the Pacific Northwest, Seattle area, and have three connecting cedar decks that we stain with Super Deck red cedar transparent oil stain. We have used that product on the decks for 20 years. We usually stain horizontal surfaces every two years and the railings every 4. Apparently Duck Back, the makers of Super Deck is no longer making an oil based product, so we are looking for something similar without having to remove the old stain. It would be very difficult, with railings all around and large surfaces. Do I understand that your 1500 product is oil based, and can it be used over the existing oil stain? We will be lightly pressure washing the decks and scrubbing the horizontal surfaces, as we usually do, before applying the stain.

    We have a marine plywood clad garage that originally was finished with Sikkens Cetol (clear) but exposure and poor initial application has resulted in pretty faded/worn/ugly cladding.  The marine ply now has a rough surface but cannot be sanded since there won't be any thing left if we do!  Can we use the 100 series in a color over the old Cetol surface?  What prep would be needed?  We are in Seattle area.  Thanks!

    I live in Western NY where the wind literally scrapes the snow across our wood deck and removes the semi-transparent stain I've been using - thus requiring an annual re-application.    The previous semi-transparent stain was Olympic Maximum. Which cleaning kit would be recommended before applying the recommended TWP series? Would I be better off with the 1500 series or the Pro?  And do they both destroy mildew?   Thanks.
