Brand new patio cover. Cedar posts and ceiling (20×20). Live in IL. Should I wait 4-12 months before staining using the 1500 series? We want to do the Black Walnut 1504 for the posts and beams and the Pecan (1520) for the ceiling. Roughly how much would I need also? Thanks for the help.

If the cedar is rough sawn should we still wait?

It is my intention to purchase a product exactly like your “TWP1500” for application on an existing log home. Upon completion of cleaning the logs the wood “PINE” is dry and porous. My question is, If I buy your product will the wood need a sealer applied prior to staining to prevent your product from blotching and provide an even distribution of stain?

Thank you,
Joe

Have used TWP 100 several times on our deck with good results. Decided to try TWP 1500 this time. I have to say that so far we are not very satisfied with it. We used the TWP 100 Clear in the past, and thought the TWP 1500 Natural would be close to clear. Boy were we mistaken! It has an orangish tint to it. We applied two coats as we have always done in the past with the 100, but the 1500 is taking forever to dry. It’s been on for two days now with temps in the mid 70’s, dry humidity and a pretty constant breeze. We live in the NC mountains and it’s great Fall weather right now. We had some 100 left over from the last application in 2019 that I used on the deck at my workshop this morning. Two coats and it’s already almost dry. Is this difference due to the low VOC of the 1500 or what? We love your products, and have recommended it to others, so we’re just a bit surprised with the 1500.

Thanks!

We did not realize at the time that it would have that much tinting nor did we know that there was a clear option since it doesn’t list it on the page that shows the color options. Just missed it when we ordered on the drop down menu. Both decks were stripped and power washed, and dried for several days, so the prep was identical. We’ll keep this in mind in the future.

Stained my new deck October, 2019 with 1 coat of TWP 1500 Honeytone on pressure treated pine. Plan on staining with the same stain Tuesday morning about 11 am after any dew evaporates. It takes about 3 hours to completely do this. Forecast just changed to a 25% chance of rain approximately 36 hours after staining is completed. The chance for rain is about a 12 hour period. How bad can that possibly damage the stained deck TWP 1500 Honeytone if it rained, say 36 hours after application rather than the 48 hours you recommend. Should I just postpone until another time when I can prep again and stain?

What would be the least amount of time the stain would dry enough to withstand rain? What would have to be done to correct the effects of rain on the stain that has not dried enough?

Would that mean to strip, brighten and stain again or clean brighten and stain again?
Would any sanding be involved?
Thank you for your time and advice.

My deck is 3 years old. Never been stained. I have received 10 gal series 1500 with cleaner and restore kit. Deck is very rough. Have sanded rails and spindles, but the deck floor is rough. Will need to sand. Do you recommend cleaning and restore first, or sand first.?

How to remove stains on siding

I’m going to restain my deck again with Natural 1530 this week. It’s a 3yr old deck and I last stained it 2 summers ago. The first year I let the wood dry out thus why I didn’t stain it the first year. I’ve purchased the 5 gallon along with the cleaner and brightener package this week. I have some questions around the order in which I should do things. If I intend to sand parts of the deck should I do that after the cleaner and brightener or before or after the cleaner? I’ve got some areas I want to fill and also just some areas that have some mold/mildew that I anticipate won’t get completely clean with the cleaner and power washing. My thought is do the cleaner first and see how things look. Then do some filling and sanding. Then put the brightener on when all is finished? Is that correct?

We applied the 1500 series stain last summer and want to do a light surface cleaning. What do you recommend to clean with and would you recommend using a pressure washer? I Don’t want to remove any stain in the process

We did as suggested however the finish is still dull. It turned out beautifully last July when we stripped and stained it with the 1500 series. The color was very brilliant and it repelled water very well. It has now lost it water repellency and the color is very dull. I would describe the finish as cloudy. It this typical and should we apply another coat this summer? If so, we wouldn’t have to strip again, correct?

After 2 summers I’m restaining mine. You could let it go another season but if you’re like me it just doesn’t look good anymore. My deck is shaded for half the day so it has a tendency to get mildew buildup.

Hi,
I ordered 5 gallon of the 1500 series Cedartone stain and the Gemini kit 2 months ago, the project looked very nice after it’s done.( I posted some photos on your website.) Now I noticed lots of fading on deck floor and black spots on some stairs. I was wondering what happened as I followed instructions carefully when I started the project. I expected the twp stain should last longer than 2 months. Our deck has full sun half of the day and I live in Raleigh, North Carolina. Attached is some photos of the current conditions. Thanks!

The sap is not my concern. It’s the fading that I am disappointed of. On the last photo, did you see the door mat ring? Under the mat is the original stain color when I finished it. The rest of the area outside the mat shows grayish wood just like I didn’t stain it at all. It’s fading super super fast. Is there a way to fix it? Thanks! N

I got two samples of 1500, pecan and dark oak…I’m thinking about mixing either 1 to 1, or 2 to 1 pecan to dark oak…I’m staining new pine log rails, posts and stringers and old (4 yrs old) redwood stair treads and deck. I want a light/medium brown tone, not golden, not red, not orange, not super dark brown…When I mixed tiny bits of the samples(very small volume for samples by the way..) the color I got on the pine log was a med lt brown. BUT I re-read the part about new wood and wax….The logs are newly stripped and turned but not green and the installer(log house builder) said I should put at least one coat of stain on before winter. I live in Park City UT, my stairs and rails especially get full sun, snow, cold dry nights, I live at 7800 altitude. I’m worried about doing either stain or no stain because of the winter season and the wax from the logs being turned. Is there something I need to do to the logs and posts before I try one coat of stain? would the cleaner and brightener help this or does it have no affect? Thanks, Marcie
