Tips on Applying TWP 100 Pro Series in 2020

TWP 100 Stain Series Wood and Deck Protectant has a coverage rate of 150-300 sq. ft. per gallon, per coat. Best to measure the wood’s square footage to determine how many gallons you’ll need for your project. On wood decks, be sure to include all the railings and steps.

Before applying TWP 100 Series Deck Stain be sure the wood surface has been cleaned properly using a wood cleaner. Use a broom or leaf blower to remove any debris that may have fallen onto the wood since cleaning it.

Applying TWP 100 Series Wood Stain

The wood must be dry for a minimum of 48 hours prior to staining and the air temperature should be above 50 degrees. Check your local forecast to make certain there will be several dry days before and after the day you want to stain.

On the day of staining be sure you have all the equipment on site that you will need. Wear protective gloves and safety glasses at all times. Mix the TWP Wood Stain thoroughly using a paint stick before and several times during use. Using plastic or tarps to cover any landscaping, siding, windows, or concrete that you don’t want any stain on.

Start with the harder to reach areas first. On wood siding, gazebos, or playsets start up high and work your way down. On a deck, start with the spindles and railings first and stain the deck floor last.

Use a brush, stain pad applicator, or pump sprayer to apply TWP 100 Deck Stain. The first coat of stain is a saturation coat. If it soaks in quickly, and the wood seems thirsty, an additional coat may be necessary. If so, apply the second coat within 30 minutes of the first coat, essentially applying them “wet on wet.” The more TWP 100 Series Stain that you can get to soak in, the better protection it will provide.

Be cautious of over-applying TWP 100 Series Wood Stain or performance may be jeopardized. If you notice excessive stain puddles or drips that aren’t being absorbed, use a stain rag or brush to remove them. Stopping in the middle of a piece of wood or board can result in unsightly lap marks. To eliminate the chance of lap marks finish staining each board from end to end once you start.

TWP 100 Series Wood Protectant has outstanding penetration properties and will dive deep into the wood. It is not prone to flaking or peeling like other stains. TWP 100 Series will simply fade after several years and can then be cleaned and recoated as needed.

I’m planning on purchasing TWP200 stain for my wood shingled siding. My original plan was to brush it on, however, it seems that a pump or airless sprayer is an option to save time. I was under the assumption that solvent based stains could not be sprayed on based on some videos I watched. Can someone give guidance as to the best way to apply and suggest sprayers. Will any sprayer work? Should I consider the WS TWP product instead? Thank for any suggestions and/or anecotal evidence as to the best approach to take.

I applied TWP this morning, it looks so dull. Can I add another coat? What might happen if I do? It sucked it right up.

I applied stain remover, did pressure washing, applied cleaner/brightner on my deck. I am planning to sand the deck with 80 grit sand paper. 1. Do I have to wash/rinse the deck after sanding? 2. I was assuming since already brightner was used , using 80 grit would open up the grain? 3. If washing/cleaning is not required after sanding, how long do I have to wait before staining with TWP 101?

TWP 100 – a few questions:
1. We have access to a power washer and Behr all in one wood cleaner. Should both be used and if so in what order?
2. We have a fence which was previously coated with TWP 100 several years back. It has began to fade and is due for re-application. Does all prior TWP 100 need to be removed or can we clean, allow to dry for 48 hours and stain over it? (same color, same product).

Thanks!

We are now sanding our deck which has been maintained for several years. Unfortunately the pergola and some Railing were sanded with 100 grid. We are now changing it to 80 for rest railing and 60 grid for the floor. My question is: 1. Do we still need to pressure wash with cleaner and brightener after sanding? Before Sanding we already pressured washed the deck with Behr cleaner. 2. What is the highest PSI allowed to pressure wash after sanding? 3. How long do we need to complete the stain after 48 hours dry time? I learned it is better… Read more »

I applied the stain using wet on wet guidelines. There appeared to be some pooling as it was drying which I wiped off with a rag, but the stickiness the stain adhered to the rag and left behind white specs of cotton in the stain. Do I wait for the oil to finish curing and then clean? What do you recommend?

Has anyone ever experienced these leopard like spots after stripping and utilizing the brightener. Tried straight bleach on them, sanding and scrubbing the you know what out of them. I am going to strip and brighten again.
Thanks

Hello,
I purchased your clear twp protectant. On the can it states it will age my deck to gray. I don’t want it gray. Can I buy a twp stain and put the clear on top of the stain? What is your best seller? My railings are black! Any help will be appreciated! Thank you!

I have a 40×20 deck with a 3ft spindle railing on one side. Also a small 6×6 porch with 3ft spindle railings on both sides. Looking at using TWP 100. It has been stained in the past but the stain is getting old. Wondering if this is the right product (located at cabin in northern WI), what wash to use and how much stain is needed. Will one coat cover? Thanks.
