I am putting new pine decking down. Have used TWP before with great results. Is there any advantage to using pressure treated pine for the deck or would regular pine be just as good? Or is cedar a better choice?
Which series should I use 100 or 1500?
I live in Austin, Tx with sun glaring on the deck sun up to sundown.

Love this product, went on easy, even overhead with the right brush to hold product! Pecan and Dk Oak on rough sawn pine.

Can the product be thinned if it’s been sitting for years?

I am installing brand new cedar batten board shutters that I ordered from Home Depot. Is there a waiting period before I can stain them? I live in the south and I don’t want the humidity to damage them.

Currently have cedar deck with Behr stain that is peeling. What do you recommend to prep the deck. Was planning on sanding and using brighter. Which cedar stain would you recommend, the 100 or 1500 series? Thank you.

Which stain (twp 100 or 1500) would work better on a weathered deck, with decent sun exposure in Lincoln, NE?

Wow! I just used TWP Dark Oak to treat a 5 year old bamboo privacy fence and, as you can see, it came out beautiful! First cleaned the fence as you suggested, then 2 days later applied the TWP. I’m so impressed with the product and the results. Thanks!

Which stain should I use for a brand new white cedar log yard swing? I would like a light to medium brown color. How many coats are needed?

We are in the process of building a new house sided in clear cedar siding and shingles. How long should I expect TWP100 to hold up on that product. I think we are using cedartone 101. Do I need to let the house weather for a period of time?

See this about new wood: https://www.twpstainhelp.com/prepping-new-wood-for-twp-stains/

On vertical wood, TWP 101 should last 4-6 years.

The photos below show a history : needing a stain replacement, applying a paint like stain recommended by the paint store that peeled after the first winter of 2014. Had to sand it off! Applied the 100 series stain here in Denver- totally worth the work- we put about a 100 hours in this thing. The belt sander was a workout but was a life saver.

Your deck looks beautiful! Can you tell me what color of the 100 Series you used and if you applied 1 or 2 coats? I’m getting ready to do my deck and hopefully it will look as good as yours.

Hi- thank you! The color – I believe had the “honey” something in the name… 1 coat with a roller. Good luck!

Your directions for the 1500 series says to wait 4 to 12 months before applying stain. The deck has been finished for about two months. This summer was really hot and the deck is just turning grey on some of the boards. Your article doesn’t mentioned sanding. I’m wondering if I use a deglazer and sand with an 80 grit with an orbital sander do you think the deck would be ok to stain? The lumber is western red ceder.
Thanks, Rick

No you should still wait. If you apply now then it will not take as well and you will need to apply another coat next year.

My red wood deck here in Colorado that was stained with Cabot last August already needs redone. Do I need to strip it before appling twp? Also the 100 series looks to be the best but I do not see a transparent stain offered?

Yes you would need to remove the Cabot first with the Restore A Deck Stripper and the brightener after. Use the 100 Series. They are semi-transparent in color.

Thanks!

Followed all instructions for a pine deck, after 6 months my rails and floor are black?

The TWP stain itself does not turn black so it is something on top of the TWP causing this. Could you please post a picture?

I have a 6 month old deck that is made of treated pine. I treated the rails with Sherman Williams Deckscape, but then read that TWP is the best. I decided to do the floor with the TWP 100 cedar so I bought a couple of gallons. After reading more on your website, I see that I need to treat it with the Gemini product prior to applying stain. My question is will the prep product interfere with the previously coated areas or can I skip this step and apply the stain to the rest of the deck?

The Gemini Kit is a cleaner and brightener and does not remove newly applied coatings. You should be fine.

I did a wet on wet application of TWP 100 in Rustic on 8 Jul 2014. I’d first prepped the cedar deck with your stripper/power washer and brightener products. They really did a great job of bringing life back to the covered cedar deck. It’s been a week since I used the brightener. The TWP 100 went on great with a brush and pad. It really penetrated the wood. I’ll report back on how it stands up but as of now TWP is the only product I will use.

We have sun, relatively low humidity today with a nice breeze and temperature in the mid 70’s. How long does it typically take for the deck to “cure” or be dry enough to use it?

I stained my porch Saturday and the wood is still sticky in some areas is that ok? I removed the excess but didn’t get all of it . The temp was in the high 60s and 50s by midnight and later 37 . But I got done with it by 7 pm do you think it will be ok?

Steve, it should be okay and it will dry eventually. Give it some more time.

If your researching and trying to figure out what stain/sealer will work best, you can stop searching because the TWP product is the best. I did my research years ago and there simply is not another product that works as well and has as many happy customers as the TWP product. I personally use the 100 series and am very happy with the results. From the first time we stained the deck, to the second and third the ease of use has been great.
