I have a large pine deck on a boathouse as well as docks all in full sun and high humidity in Alabama. It is 5-6 years old, never stained or sealed, and had some black mold on many areas which I have pressure washed completely off but I’m also aware mold spores are notoriously difficult to eradicate. 1) Before or after prepping with your products should I TRY to treat with vinegar, borate, or bleach solution? 2) I’ve seen you suggested 100 series for docks but was that before the semi solid series came out and would semi solid now be better?

I used the cedar tone 200 series two years ago. This will be my first year I want to freshen up the look. Do I use the whole gemini restore a deck and then 1 coat of stain? Or is there a different process as I am not changing colour or wanting to remove the old stain but freshen up the look. There are a few spots of wear where the stain is almost gone and there is spots I need to clean due to tree sap. Thanks.

Is the new Semi-Solid stain better for docks? I applied Seafoam to a brand new test piece of pressure treated pine and the color was almost impossible to see. I was expecting there would be more solid pigment?

I’m going to be staining a previously stained dock over fresh water lake in NC. Planning on stripping, brightening, then wet on wet staining. I’m concerned about the stripping and brightening product into the water. I see noted “eco friendly”. Any advise is greatly appreciated.

Hi, I built my deck July 2018, its treated SYP. In July 2019 I did proper cleaning/brightening and applied one coat of 1530 natural, it looked great at first. However this spring it has a lot of grey and mildew/mold spots. See pic. The vertical surfaces still look great. Its in full sun. (as much sun as Ohio gets) Do I need to apply another coat? Does it need to be cleaned and brightened again?
