Wow i have never done anything like that but that sounds like an amazing system and assuming much less overspray

Horizontal with a six inch wide x 36 inch long mini roller. Purdy collosus nap.

Maybe have a couple naps on hand that first day to see which one works best.

Is it possible to just spray this job successfully without all the backrolling/brushing methods described? Yes it is. Wham bang, thank you ma'am.

Re: Cypress Siding 2 Coats TWP (natural) Application Technique 4,000 Sq Ft. Advice


Went out there today to play around finally had a nice weather day. Thankyall so much for the advice and opinions. I can see why TWP recommends a conditioner to open the pores. It just does not want to soak in. It looks like little pinheads of stain because it won't absorb correctly. Builder wanted to try without though and see if home owners approve it. So we will see tom. I did not have to cover all the stucco like i thought even though it is windy as hell because it is on a lake. i just used a 412 tip and sprayed and back brushed. i just plastic out like 8 ft. The biggest brush sherwin williams had was a 4" purdy. It worked but i need a bigger brush for 4098 sq ft surface area. I sprayed 2 boards side by side and back brushed one for comparison. They looked the same until they dried and the one that was not back brushed looked like crap. I also tested back rolling with a 3/8" nap synthetic nap and that left too much on. Main problem though it won't soak in as aforementioned so the roller leaves way too much. This is pretty easy overall Sometimes i have a lot of anxiety about results and its never as bad as i think ! wasted worrying ! smh

careful with TWP we did a few decks with it last year and had problems with it looking shinny in places. Which as it turns out was because we did not wipe all the excess stain off right away.

100 or 1500? Does 1500 behave like 100 (only stuff I've used)?
