Prepping Tip 1: Choose a  Wood and Deck Cleaner if gray, dirty, reapplying the same stain, etc.

Prepping Tip 2: Choose a Stain Stripper if you have a failed stain that has peeled or worn unevenly. 

Prepping Tip 3: Choose a Wood Brightener to neutralize the wood cleaner or stain stripper. 

Prepping Tip 4: You do not need both a deck cleaner and a stain stripper. Just choose one. If you are unsure what to use, we encourage you to ask here: Questions On Products

Help Arrow 1Step 2 - Stain the Wood

Staining Tip 1: Choosing a stain with a "color" will prolong the graying. The darker the color, the longer it will last.

Staining Tip 2: Choose a semi-transparent or semi-solid deck stain that penetrates into the wood grain will make future reapplication easier.

Staining Tip 3: Our most popular deck stains are the Defy Extreme, Armstrong Clark, and the TWP Stains.

    80 degrees today. Down to 49 degrees tonight. 80s again tomorrow. Is it ok for me to stain my deck today with TWP?
