Best TWP Stain for Fence

Like any exterior wood surface, wood fences need to be protected from the elements to prevent wood rot, decay and fading. The best TWP Exterior Wood Stain for wood fences is the new TWP 1500 formula. This new version outperforms the previous TWP 500 series. The 1500 series is designed for improved penetration and faster dry times.

TWP 1500 is a low VOC wood preservative that has a unique blend of pigments that help protect against unsightly wood graying, fading, and darkening. This is why the 1500 series is best for cedar, redwood, mahogany, and pressure treated pine fences. Its special blend of powerful mildewcides also helps inhibit mold and mildew growth, which can jeopardize the integrity of your wood fence.

With many colors to choose from, TWP (Total Wood Protection) will preserve the wood’s natural color, will shed water longer, prevents mold/mildew, cracking, splitting, warping, and is easy to apply. TWP 1500 Series Exterior Wood and Deck Stain is a low 250 VOC formula that is compliant in 50 states. TWP is the only EPA registered wood preservative on the market.

TWP 1500 Series will keep your wood fence looking naturally beautiful and free from water damage, discoloration, and sun fading. The easy to apply and maintain formula will ensure that you enjoy your investment for many years to come.

    Hello, I live in Mississippi. We put a new wood fence up in May, so it's had about 5 months to dry out. I'd like to stain it in Oct or Nov. What are the proper temperature ranges the stain should be applied in? Also, should I use TWP 100 for this job?

    Can I use an airless sprayer to apply the 1500 series to my fence, or should I stick with a garden sprayer?

    You can use either.

    I just finished TWP 1500 #1520 Pecan on a cedar fence. I got a sample from the paint store and the sample looked great but when I stained the fence the fence now looks orange.. The sample they gave me was more brown tone. Is the anything I can do to get rid of the orange look. Thanks

    You could remove and start over. You could apply a darker color 6-12 months later.

    bought some TWP1500 last summer for a cedar deck. Prepped deck according to instructions -- twice. Deck was built in June and stained in late September while the weather was still dry. Stain was not absorbed into the wood as shown in videos.
    Now have to re-stain the deck after about 8 months. NOT HAPPY WITH THIS STAIN. Am I doing something wrong?

    If you prepped correctly and the stain did not absorb then it was over applied. TWP is a penetrating oil but if the stain cannot absorb then it is due one of a few things. Wood was not ready, wood was wet, wood was not prepped correctly, it was over applied. You are also supposed to wait 4-12 months for the wood to dry out and it seems you may not have.

    I have a multi-level fence with 145 linear feet at 4' tall and 159 linear feet at 6'tall (304 total). How much do I need? Also, I live in Northwest Florida. Can I use the 1500? It does stay humid in the summer but it gets cold in the winter as well (26 degrees today). Will I have issues if I use the oil based stain here?[/quote]
    Please send a total sq. footage. Length x height and are you doing both sides of the fence? If so then you need to double.[/quote]

    The total square footage will be 3,068. How much will I need and what series of stain will I need based on the above comments? Thanks

    Use the 1500 Series. It works very well for verticals in your climate. For your sq. footage you will need 20-30 gallons of stain. Coverage varies on the age of the wood and the application. This is for two coats applied "wet on wet". Make sure to prep the wood correctly as well.

    I have 200 linear feet 6' tall of cedar fence to stain so 2400 sq ft. What stain do you recommend and how much do I need. I live in oak lawn Illinois

    For IL you need the 1500. For 2 coats you would need about 20-25 gallons.

    Is the 100 or 1500 series of stains similar to Forest Service Oil, which I have used in the past? Also, is your product available at a dealer or do you only ship your products?

    TWP 100 and 1500 are oil best wood preservative stains. Never heard of Forest Service Oil. We ship products from this website.

    I have a fence that was previously stained and needs to be re-finished. The fence is 6' x 100' and will need to be stained on both sides. What products and how much would I need to re-do the fence. I believe that I used the 500 series originally. Do I need to power wash?
    Do I need to apply something before staining?

    Yes the Gemini Restore Kit and pressure washing for the prep. Stain with the 1500 Series for the fence. You will need about 10-15 Gallons for the 2 coats.
