Last question (I hope.). Can’t locate a 213 tip. Will a 211 tip (.011 aperture) work for the semi solid stain? Thanks…

What is the appropriate tip size for the semi solid stain? Working on aged cedar, recently cleaned. 4in pickets. Is .013 right? Or should the aperture be larger or smaller? Thanks….

New to cedar fence staining, and have a few questions. Planning to use TWP SEMI SOLID stain to help preserve the fence. As much concerned with long term protection as with appearance.

Recently moved and new house has 300+ ft of (white..?) never stained 5/4” cedar fencing — 4” wide. About 15+ years old. Needless to say, very green and moldy. See pics below. The first 2 are similar, just different lighting.

Scrubbed with bleach, rinsed thoroughly and dried; then sprayed w oxalic solution. Then rinsed oxalic thoroughly and allowed to dry. I repeated above procedure on various areas that needed more work.

Not terribly concerned with rusting screw marks. May replace some.

Plan on buying Wagner 130 tank spray for this job. Thinking smallest tip w 4”- 6” pattern might be best. Any thoughts on this?

Big Question: Fighting possible weather change here. Planning on cleaning and staining BOTH sides of fence — mine and surrounding neighbors. If my side is stained and finished, will cleaning and spraying bleach and oxalic on the other side of fence damage the stain on my side? I suspect some of the bleach and oxalic *may* splash through the pickets to the my freshly stained side. 

And…any cautions, gotchas, etc based on what I’ve shown here? Thanks for any help or ideas.

Since one side is clean and free of mold, could it just be treated with the wood brightener instead of both products? Can that be sold separately?

Also…not sure I understand why BOTH sides need to be treated and stained at the same time. Was thinking of doing them sequentially and taking care of neighbors’ side later.

Just checked w several neighbors on the other side of the fence. One has a acrylic stain on his side and apparently and I see NO effect or discoloration from my cleaning on my side. Another, with a moldy surface like mine was, also shows no sign of any over splash or effect on that side. Nothing bled through. I would think I could clean and stain each side separately. Thanks for your thoughts and help on this

Can I do a coat of clear 200 over a coat of semi solid ?

Have a recent cedar deck, a couple years not treated waiting for extreme mill glaze to weather off. Now cleaned and still some glaze, but the wood is checked / cracked a bit. Definitely going to sand down.
Q: I puchased 100 series (cedar). Can I use that first, then followed by TWP semi-solid?

Is 100 series best to use for a deck in shaded/damp location? Some sun but mildew and moisture are my main problems. Live in Georgia. Thx

Thanks! I have a lot of leaves and debris which fall on the deck. I’m assuming a darker stain would be better to prevent organic deposit stains?

I have been using TWP 1516 Rustic on my Vermont deck for many years, needing to reapply every other year. Would switching to the Semi-Solid Pro Series give me any longer life? I assume I’d need to clean and brighten before applying the semi-solid stain. Also which color would be closest to Rustic in semi-solid line?

I have a deck stained with twp100 in dark oak. It is time to refresh it with a new coat. Im interested in the new semi-solid twp stain. Can you tell me which semi solid color would match up closest to the 100 series dark oak? Also any tips or recommendations when changing between the two series is appreciated. Thanks.

What are the differences between the series 1500 and the semi-solid

I’m using the oil based Redwood Forest semi-solid stain on my 20 year old treated lumber deck. It has been cleaned with a bleach based deck cleaner and power washed twice. I plan to apply 2 coats of stain to the deck, if required. After the stain has been applied, how many hours do you normally need to keep foot traffic off the deck to allow it to dry and cure?

I live in the Mohave Desert in Arizona. I have a covered open porch with 2×4 decking. Porch faces east and small amount west. What would be the best product for this application?

Does the semi solid allow the wood grain to show through?

I see you now have TWP semi-solid pro series. I had planned on using the 100 series semi-transparent. What’s the difference, advantages of one over the other. If I use the semisolid vs semi-transparent, does it need stripped before additional coats later on or just cleaned? Changes or danger of peeling with semi-solid vs semi-transparent? Semi-solid give better protection? Can get samples of semi-solid? Is this a one coat or wet to wet 2 coat? If I went with the TWP 100 semi-transparent pro series, then in a year or two, could I recoat maintenance with the semi-solid in same color, without having to strip it? Thank you. .
