"My contractor put a second coat of TWP 1501 on horizontal decking too think and uneven, some areas now look glossy and others more saturated. Is there any way to even this out?"
There are a number of factors that could have caused this issue. If the deck was not completely cleaned prior to application or if your contractor applied the product too thick. Regardless you will probably have to strip the TWP Stain off the deck and start again. We would recommend using our Top To Bottom Deck stripper. This can be applied with a brush or a broom and then rinsed with a garden hose.
