log home cleaner
Good morning, Do you sell Bio wash or simple wash made by bio wash? How much per gallon and can it be shipped to Canada? If not, do you have a similar product that will remove mildew stains from a log home?

Thank you! Cam

Defy Extreme samples?
I see your Defy samples, but they don't seem to match the full color list of the new Defy Extreme line. I'm interested in the cedar tone, light walnut and also butternut, but I don't see butternut available as a sample.

re: Help with Color
Sequoia is closest but not the same. It is not that much different as far longevity. Just slightly better color retention.

Help with Color
My deck gets lots of sun so you recommended a semi solid. My wife ordered a sample of the sierra redwood which is semi transparent and of course she likes the color. On the website it shows it as having quite a bit of red but on our treated pine it is quite brown..(which she likes) IN a semi solid which color do you think would be closest to the Sierra Redwood?

OR how much protection do we lose if we went the the semi....????

cleaner / brightener
Hi, We are ordering samples of deck stain for timber oil brand. Building a new deck with kiln dried cedar. The wood brand is called Cascadia by TPF sold by Parr Lumber. Question: Do I use cleaner or brightener before staining?What brand is good with this stain? We live in Oregon and the deck is exposed to the water, lots of rain. Also should I stain the bottom of the wood before screwing it down? I want to stain it in three to four weeks and reviews said this is the right stain choice for new decks. My deck is 27x16 with no railings, just one step.I was going to order 5 gals. Will that be enough? Thanks for your advice, John

Pool Deck, NB, Canada
I will be staining our PTP pool deck with AC stain, but uncertain of color due to the chlorine content of the pool. Getting in and out of the pool and what effect it will have on the stain if I go dark (Oxford Brown or Mountain Cedar)) vs light (Driftwood grey or Cedar semi). Thank you for your time and advice

Defy Extreme Stain - Butternut sample not available?

I don't see a sample available to order for the "Defy Extreme Stain - Butternut". Is it available and the website is not up to date, or is it really not an option. I will be ordering from Canada so I need to use your website.

re: natural color retention, do you have a recommendation
None of these samples "mask" the wood grain, they "enhance" the wood grain with different pigments. I would look at the TWP 1515 Honeytone as it is the lightest tone. Typically enhances the wood grain similar as to wet with water.
TheSealerStore , April 12, 2012
Last summer I refinished my 15 year old decking (2500 sq ft) with TWP 100 Cedartone. Three coats, 30 gallons and 9 months later, the deck looks wonderful and I have no doubt about using TWP in the future.

However, the small amount of remaining Cedartone is not what I want to use to finish a new outdoor cabinet that I've almost completed with black walnut. I especially want to show off the beauty of the wood and am reluctant to use a "stain" because I'm afraid it will neutralize all the natural tones. The options I'm considering are TWP 1500 Black Walnut (a "stain" and TWP 1500 Clear). The cabinet will be somewhat sheltered from the weather (large overhang) and will get only a little direct sun (one hour?).

Thanks, Rich

Since I'm looking for natural color retention, do you have a recommendation?
