What is the best product to use on cedar shingles on my home. They are 30 years old and I last pressured washed and applied an Olympic oil base stain which held up great about 10 years ago. I plan to pressure wash the shingles and would like to know what product you would recommend for a stain. I love the look of wood and would like to use a semi transparent stain so the beauty of the wood still appears. Would greatly appreciate your advice. Thanks, alan

We have 1 year old pressure treated pine deck in NC, never treated or stained yet. Use deck prep or restore-a-deck prior to staining? Can use TWP 100 but prefer lower voc 1500. Any downside to using 1500 here? And since this is first deck treatment, just one application or 2 (wet on wet)?

i have a 36 year old redwood deck. It’s been painted for several years and we just sanded off the paint. I want to put a stain on it but don’t want to put tons of time into it. There is lots of discoloring. Can I just pad on the TWP 1500 and be done? Getting tired of this deck and want to get back to life. Also, can I use the deck after 12 hours?

I am preparing to treat my log cabin again. Used a TWP 300 series 10 yrs ago and TWP 203 5yrs ago and will use TWP 1500 this time. My request is for a recommended caulk or chinking. Used PermaChink last time and have to constantly repair it due to separating.

That is the old instructions and they have since switched to the Gemini Restore Kit for prep.

Here are some pics of the redwood mini-deck-stairs we did to the lower yard. (Calif) New wood (sat 3 months 3 months) Re-sanded all surfaces, except legs, right before oiling. Legs were done with Behr, you will see they are more yellow. Hated It! (15 years ago I like Behr, but new formula?) So I read up and ordered TWP 1530 natural after getting a couple of samples to try. Love Love Love it! If the pictures load you will see diff between legs with Behr and rest of project. This was a 10 by 10 deck with stairs. We… Read more »

15 year old deck restored to new! This is not a short story. Over the years I may have tried every cleaning and staining option known to mankind. Power washing. Hand scrubbing. Soap-based cleaners. Bleech-based cleaners. Staining with the “good stuff” from the big boys like Benjamin Moore. Cheaping out and using Home Depot options. Every solution was mediocre but accepted as “the best I could do.” Two years ago I treated a corner of the deck with TWP 1500 natural. I read some reviews online and was intrigued but skeptical of this “penetrating” stain. The results were astounding, while… Read more »

Stained my log home with TWP 1500 ( Redwood). Took me 6 weeks at 12 hours a day. I’m almost done. Looks great,i get lots of compliments. Wore out 5 -4″ brushes. I highly recommend TWP to anyone wanting a high quality stain. I added “BEE GONE ” to the stain before i applied. Carpenter bees are a enemy of log homes. One bite and they die. Here’s a picture after i finished to garage end of the house.

I used the 1500 in the Honey color 2 years and it is time to redo it. It was applied to our cedar deck.
5 = Overall Apperance
4 = Durability
4.5 = Overall
Best stain that I have ever used. In the past we used Behr stain. It peeled within a year. The TWP did not peel at all, just faded a little. We are going to scrub the deck down and reapply to the floor.
What should I use to clean? Bleach?

Samson, bleach is actually bad for wood. Best to use the Gemini Restore Kit to prep the deck before reapplying.

Why does the Gemini product data sheet for TWP say to clean the surface with a 50/50 mix of bleach and water?
