We will reply to your comment shortly· 09/30/2012TWP suggest waiting 4-12 months to stain new wood. Clean and brighten new wood before staining is required. Only 1 coat on newer wood. For the 1 coat you would need 6-8 gallons
We will reply to your comment shortly· 09/30/2012I have a new cedar pergola, wth the main cedar posts/beams/rafters being moderately rough. I have approximately 1200 sq. ft. of surfaces to stain. How much TWP 1500 to cover the 2 recomended wet-on-wet coats?
We will reply to your comment shortly· 07/26/2012TWP does not promote mold growth so it has to be one of the the two mentioned. I am 100% certain it is not the stains fault.
We will reply to your comment shortly· 07/26/2012Thank you for your reply. I do not believe either situation you described happened because the wood looked really good before and after prepping, no spores. Second, I waiting until all the pollinating was done to prevent problems from happening.
I will do as you recommend with the 1 part bleach to 5 parts water mixture.
I have to tell you I am quite disappointed with this. We've had a deck in this location before and just replaced it and enlarged it and never had this problem with acrylic stains....
We will reply to your comment shortly· 07/25/2012Mold can grow on top of any surface. Stains cannot stop this but they can prevent it from growing in the stain. TWP contains an EPA registered preservative that prevents this. One of two things probably occurred.
1. The mold spores where in the wood prior to staining and where not not completely killed when prepping.
2. A tree in the area was pollinating during the process and got caught between the wood and the stain. This can cause mold spots.
I am assuming the second based on the 2 months. At this point I would take a very light concentrate of 1 part bleach to 5 parts water and apply with a pump sprayer to the entire deck. Rinse after 10 minutes thoroughly. This should kill/remove the black spots and not damage the stain.
We will reply to your comment shortly· 07/25/2012I properly cleaned, and brightened a new deck that 'cured' for 9 months before prepping and staining. 2 months after properly preparing and staining the deck I have black mold showing up on large portions of the deck. The deck is exposed to a good amount of sun light. I am very upset with this. I spent a lot of money and sweat building this deck a year ago and I was 'anal' about prepping and staining properly. I had debated to use oil based vs. acrylic and went with the 'experts' and used a 'good quality' oil based stain since it was a 'new' deck. What do I do now!!!/???

We will reply to your comment shortly· 07/19/2012550 sq ft of deck boards
Not much railing as I used PVC lattice sheeting Add 100 sq ft to be safe
1) How much TWP 1500 to cover?
2) Cost to ship that amount to Port Hawksbury Nova Scotia Canada?
We will reply to your comment shortly· 07/16/2012No that is probably enough for only 1 coat. You would need another 5 gallon pail for a second coat. If the wood is dry then you should apply a light second coat.
We will reply to your comment shortly· 07/16/2012Hi, I already purchased 10 gallons of TWP1500 (2, 5-gallon units) and have 1680 square feet to cover. Is this enough for 2 coats? Do you advise 2 coats?
We will reply to your comment shortly· 06/02/2012Do you have railings too? We need a total sq. footage to give advice. Try this:

We will reply to your comment shortly· 06/02/2012Looking for advice if 5 gal is enough to do two coats for a 356 sq ft deck including treatment of the posts/closed steps. I was thinking I would need 6 gallons...

We will reply to your comment shortly· 05/26/2012Do you ship to Canada? What is the approximate cost to ship a 5 gallon pail?
We will reply to your comment shortly· 03/15/2012A clear sealer will not prevent UV graying. You must have a tint in the stain if you want it to last.
Best to use a cleaner that is designed for wood and the use of a wood brightener is essential for overall appearance and longevity of the stain. I would look at the Restore-A-Deck ([url]http://www.opwdecks.com/restore-a-deck.htm[/url]) for the cleaner and brightener.
We will reply to your comment shortly· 03/15/2012I have a 16x32 pressured treated wood deck that is 18 yeas old. Over the years I have had the deck powerwashed but never sealed. The deck has weather to a dark gray color and has mildew stains from overhanging trees. I am currently plan on cleaning the deck with and Oxygen zbleach cleaner and applying a clear sealer. I like what I read about your TWP 1500 series and am wondering if it comes in a clear finish. I live in the Centerville Oh area and would like to know if I can purchase your material in this area. Yhank you for your help!
We will reply to your comment shortly· 03/12/2012Before applying any new stain/sealer you should remove the CWF first. This can typically be done with a stain stripper.
TWP 1500 Series is a great wood preservative and stain and would work very well for you.
Not sure what you mean by "non-stained" look as TWP and any high quality stains are tinted.
We will reply to your comment shortly· 03/12/2012I have a large treated wood deck. After it was built - about 1.5 years ago - I used Flood CWF-UV deck sealer. It looked good to start, but it already has faded, the decking is cracking and it looks like untreated wood. I assume CWF-UV is water based.
I want a deck sealer that will last for several years and keep the sealed look. Is this the one? Should I pressure wash it before applying TWP 1500? Will it return to a 'non stained looking' look.
We will reply to your comment shortly· 06/19/2011If you have some dark areas it might make sense to use a color that is a little richer like the Pecan.
We will reply to your comment shortly· 06/19/2011Hello; I have a older pressure treated pine deck that I have just thoroughly pressure washed to get it clean. I would like to seal it now and retain as much of the natural color as possible. It does have some slightly darker shades in some areas. My question is: would I be better to stay with the "Natural:, or go with the "Pecan" to help hide some of the darker areas? Thank You; D Hill
