We will reply to your comment shortly· 06/22/2022On a new redwood deck, can I apply a (single) coat of 1500 without waiting a year? I'm in California and the sun is beating on the deck consistently, so I'm thinking I'm better off getting some protection on it. It's about four months old. Thanks.
We will reply to your comment shortly· 07/12/2018We had a new redwood deck put in Spring 2017 and have let it age. We are now ready to clean, brighten, and stain. We've chosen the TWP 1504 Black Walnut.
The deck is about 1050 square feet. I've read conflicting advice on 1 coat or 2. Product says two coats, wet on wet; your site says for the first time only use 1 coat. Please advise so I know how much to order.
Also, how much cleaner and brightener shall I order?
We will reply to your comment shortly· 07/13/2018Year deck is over a year old so you will need the two light coats applied wet on wet. You will need about 10 gallons for the two coats and two of the prep kits as well.
We will reply to your comment shortly· 09/11/2016Yes you can blend the TWP with other colors of the same series. We do offer samples for testing:
We will reply to your comment shortly· 09/06/2016I live is a damp wooded area in Pennsylvania so I have decided that the oil based TWP 1500 series would be best for my deck. I will need almost 10 gallons of stain. In my quest for a more custom color my question is has anyone ever combined two stain tints with success? I am thinking of combining (1516 Rustic with 1503 Dark Oak) or (1504 Black Walnut with 1502 Redwood)
We will reply to your comment shortly· 07/28/2016Opened, less than a year. Unopened, a few months.
We will reply to your comment shortly· 07/28/2016Thank you for the response - what is the expected shelf life of unused material...TWP 1515
We will reply to your comment shortly· 07/28/2016Since you have already used the 1500, it would be best to stay with it. You can clean and brighten the wood for prep. No need to strip. If you wanted to switch to the 100, you should strip as it is a little thinner in consistency than the 1500.
We will reply to your comment shortly· 07/27/2016I applied 1515 to PTP deck 4 years ago. After thorough deck cleaning with cleaner/brightener and power washing, I am ready to reseal. Looking for guidance between the 1515 and 115 sealer. I live in Michigan. Also, since I would be putting TWP over TWP I assume there is no need to strip. Please confirm.
We will reply to your comment shortly· 06/21/2016150-200 Sq. feet per gallon for the first coat. Second coat applies at 250-300 sq. feet.
We will reply to your comment shortly· 06/21/2016What is the square foot coverage for TWP 1530?
We will reply to your comment shortly· 06/18/2015Look at the Armstrong Clark in a semi-solid color.
We will reply to your comment shortly· 06/18/2015Hello,
I live in upstate South Carolina and I have an 11 year old deck that needs to be restored. I had to replace a few of the old floor boards the other day and I am trying to figure out what stain will work for me. I wanted to go with the TWP 1500 originally but am concerned about the new wood not absorbing the stain and having mismatched colors. Should I go with a full body solid stain to be safe? If so, what should I use?

Either one of those stains would work well for you. I would suggest the samples and picking the color you like the best.
We will reply to your comment shortly· 05/23/2015Hello,
I live in southwest Florida. We have built one large deck from PT and are planning to start a second even larger one next weekend. I know I need to let the decks dry for a couple months before I stain them so I am researching stains/sealers. Due to our very harsh sun, humidity and rain, I have become convinced that the big box store brands are probably not my best choice. I am undecided between TWP 1500 or the Armstrong-Clarke. I prefer the TWP colors but I like that the Armstrong Clarke can be applied in the full sun and heat. I don't see the application instructions here for the products so any advice would be appreciated. Also is it possible to get samples? I am going to wind up with over 1200 sq ft of decking and pergola so I would like to be able to see what the actual color is going to look like before ordering that much stain.
We will reply to your comment shortly· 05/13/2014As stated above, TWP is not allowed in Canada.
We will reply to your comment shortly· 05/13/2014I would like to order TWP 1500. You have responded previously to others to say that it can't be shipped to Canada. It says in this press release that TWP is available online to ship to Canada through Sealer Store:
We will reply to your comment shortly· 06/24/2013No the TWP 1530 is tinted, not clear. If it does not have a tint then it will not prevent UV graying. Only the 1500 for NJ.
We will reply to your comment shortly· 06/23/2013Is 1530 (natural)of TWP 1500 colorless? I do not want to add any color on our pressure treated pine. We live in NJ so TWP 100 would not be available to us, correct?
We will reply to your comment shortly· 05/05/2013Hi! I know that light colored stains don't protect as well, but we really enjoy the natural beauty of our "new" deck (its >9 months old) so were thinking of going with Honeytone or Natural. Which one would provide more protection?
We will reply to your comment shortly· 04/04/2013Sorry but we do not. Final colors will vary though depending on wood type, age of wood, how applied, etc. Best to get a few samples to test before you buy in bulk. Stain Samples ([url]http://www.opwdecks.com/wood-stain-samples.htm[/url])
