Garapa Stain Question

Posted by stephanie93 (My Page) on

In the process of having a beautiful garapa deck installed at our new home (Thanks George!!). My question is about staining. We are planning to use TWP 100 series now, at 12 months and then again at 24 months. I love the color of the deck now but would not mind it being slightly darker. It has aged a few weeks, so it is no longer "new". I thought my best option would be clear, but will that gray overtime?? On the other hand if I go with the honeytone, will I have to keep reapplying every three years. Would love to hear from you.

RE: Garapa Stain Question

TWP 100 series is a build coat finish put the second coat on right away. Built up to four coats and your good for 3-5 years. The more coats the longer it takes to set up the porduct actually burns into itself. The lighter the color the less uv protection.

All clear or natural outdoor finish has no uv protection use them and the wood will go gray. I must have keyed that in a bazillion times ghesssssssssss. J.
