I had custom cedar posts and shutters put on my house and the carpenter stained them with the wrong color. I wanted TWP natural or rustic cedar stain color and the stain is red/orange. Is there anyway to correct this or tone it down?

We have a red cedar deck which is five years old. WE had it professional stripped and stained in May of this year. The contractor used TWP 100 Pecan at our request. We are now seeing areas of graying mostly in shade areas under the bench area. Why would this be happening so soon ? What can we do about it ?

I just finished a grill table build and finished it with two coats of TWP101 Cedartone. The color is beautiful. I am considering putting a coating of clear gloss marine coating/varnish in the table top to increase durability of the work surface. Do you have a recommendation either for or against doing this? Do you have a product recommendation?

We stained our 20 yr old deck ( with new boards on parts with twp 100, 2 coats after sanding and cleaning a month ago & it turned out beautiful. It has cured and dried a month in Atlanta ga so it’s in the 80’s . Put our rug down for gathering for 2 days and it rained. Boards look whitish where rug was and had to go over it with a mop then dry it. Quite a pain and would like to prevent that on the future. ( we only put rug out when entertaining).

I live in Canada and can only purchase the 200 series. We are going to be using Western Red Cedar T&G horizontal siding. I have a picture of the color we want. Can you please help with what color stain we should purchase? The 200 series currently does not have a photo album to see examples. We don’t want it to be too red and we also don’t want it to be too dark. Thanks in advance.

I just ordered some samples of 3 stain colors, once I apply them, do I need to strip them off before applying my choice stain or can I apply over it, if a darker color?

Hi, I am a Canada buyer and have a question on TWP 200 series:
Do you provide color match similar to Benjamin Moore? If not, can I order 200 series with “TWP106 Prairie Gray” color?
Thanks a lot

I am thinking of buying the TWP 200 stain since I live in Canada. I have 2 questions:
1 – is the only stain you sell for the Canadian market?
2 – is there any disadvantage to clear TWP 200, i.e. less UV protection since it is not colored?

thanks,

Dennis

What Shade do you suggest for a deck made of cyprus that gets a lot of sunlight? Inside floors leading out are oak wood-look tile. Thinking of Dark Oak or Rustic. Does stain tend to go on lighter or darker than advertised?

I want to apply TWP to just sanded red cedar shingles that are about 10 old. I applied a test area of TWP 200 cedartone color and it looks very dark even after a week of dry time. Is cedar tone 200 darker than 1500? The shingles are freshly sanded. I’d like to preserve the current color with UV protection to prevent graying over time. Which product is best. I’m in Connecticut. Thanks.

I used cedartone 1500 on a shed and like the color. We did a test spot on my house with 200 cedartone and it looks noticeably darker. Is that expected? The shingles are the same age and same prep.

Will 200 and 1500 look much different?

Will 1500 require recoating sooner than 200?

I have finished applying a second coat of TWP 100 to a new cedar deck that was installed last september. I brushed out puddling areas and wiped down with shop towels. This morning a few areas still seem glossy but not thick. How or what do I fo with these areas that are drying? Is it to late?

Now that I have power washed our 10 year old cedar fence, it looks like areas of it need to be sanded. Is this necessary before staining? I can’t imagine the labor involved in doing so.

Can you give me some advice on cleaning my dear siding before using a stain? Will your strippers work to do this on vertical cedar?

Thanks.

Cincinnati OH…1500 Rustic Oak on Pine…sanded down to bare wood and used one coat…this is a 20 year old screened-in and covered porch so the wood was in great condition. Very happy with the results. Will probably do a second coat next spring after a good cleaning.
