Best TWP Stain for Shakes and Shingles

by TWP Stains

Wood shakes and shingles are commonly found on older architectural type homes but are still a popular choice on newer homes as well. Shake siding and wood shingles can give a home a charming look that can last for many years. Although these wood surfaces can be very appealing, they are prone to water and sun damage when they are left unprotected. Protecting these surfaces with a quality wood stain can prolong the life of the wood and enhance its natural beauty. This not only increases your home’s curb appeal, but protects against wood rot and decay caused by years of weather exposure.

The best TWP Stain for shakes and shingles is the 200 Series Wood Stain. TWP 200 Series Stain is a deep penetrating oil stain that contains more than 94% solids extending the life of exterior wood surfaces like wood shakes and wood shingles. The non-drying paraffin oil enhances the wood cells structural stability to greatly improve the wood’s appearance and longevity.

TWP 200 Series Wood Stain repels and sheds harmful water and moisture, which can otherwise penetrate and damage shakes and shingles. These surfaces are also prone to sun damage, especially shakes and shingles on a horizontal surface like a roof. TWP 200 Series prolongs UV fading and discoloring caused by overexposure to harmful UV rays.

The 200 series product is compliant in all 50 states and is available in many different colors to meet your wood staining needs. Protect your home’s exterior shakes and shingles with the dependability of TWP’s 200 Series Wood Preservative. To purchase the best stain for shakes and shingles buy from an official TWP online dealer. Experience the quality and dependability of TWP 200 Series Wood Stains and extend the life and beauty of your wood shakes and shingles.

No stain on them. They are quite old and weathered and we are right on the salty beach (Pacific Ocean). They are also sun baked but I don’t really want to re-shingle

I just had red cedar shingles put on the facade of my house.  Does the 4 to 12 month waiting time apply to the shingles or just decking material?

We just installed primed red cedar shakes on our home that have a gray tone to them. I like the way they look now. What do we do to preserve them and keep them looking as natural as they do now? From what I read, the TWP 200 Series Wood Stains (semi-transparent?) are the best choice as long as I pick a color closest to the gray tone we have now, am I correct?

Which color in the 200 series is most similar to the 115 Honeytone? The previous owner left unused 115 Honeytone and I can’t tell if they used it for the shakes or just the deck.

What do you suggest to clean and to stain these? Will the original color come back or are these too weathered? Ideally I’d like an even color.

I live just north of Seattle and Have a significant amount of cedar shake siding on the north side. I believe the shake was pre-stained before installation but I don’t know if it was oil or water based. I have used cleaner, brushed and (low pressure) pressure washed the shingles and I want to use the longest lasting stain I can as this is a bear of a job (the siding is on the second and third floors). I understand your 200 series is recommended for siding. I also understand oil based stains cannot be used over water based stains. How would I know if Your 200 series stain will work for on these pre-stained shingles?

Thank you. Do I apply 1 coat? A 2nd coat soon after the first? Or 2nd coat next summer? The siding has been on for 10 years. And what is the process to re-coat it in the future? Can I clean and re-apply the 200 series? Or, will it need to be stripped and re-applied?

I have cedar shingle siding. I have stained them using Olympic stain in the past. I have found that the stain bleeds as the shingles get wet and over time there are drip marks at the bottom of the shingles and even discolors my white woodwork. Does TWP bleed?

I am having new red cedar shingles installed on the front of our 10 year old home. Should I use your TWP 200 Series and is it available in different colors? Do the shingles need to be pre-treated in any way, it is an East facing front near Seattle ,WA.

We have a home with a cedar shingle roof. In doing some research, I have read that you should never apply a sealant to the cedar roofs because the cedar is designed to absorb water and thats why it is an effective roofing material. Is this product different in that sense? I don’t want to apply something to the cedar that will shorten its lifespan or degrade its performance. I am also wondering what kind of cleaning is required before application?

We just purchased an older (40’s) house that has a cedar shake roof, cedar shingle siding, and an ipe deck that is probably 8-10 years old. The roof and siding was just pressure washed. I need to know what products to use on the roof, siding, and decking. I do know that the previous owner used TWP Honeytone for the siding, but that is all I have to go on. After hours online, I am still confused on what to do on the roof. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!!

Our home was originally stained with a Sikkens product many many years ago. About seven years ago it was stained again; however, a Pittsburgh Paints stain, Sunproof semi-transparent in teak was used. It turned out darker than expected and has gotten even darker with time. We would like it to be lighter and are planning on stripping the vertical siding and would like to use a clear stain? However, for the shakes and shingles, I read that we should use your 200 series. So, would I 200 on the shingles and 100 on the vertical siding? And, how about stripping the shingles, is that okay, if so, any special recommendations on the best way to do it? Thanks so much for your help.

We are reconstructing an artist’s studio building, originally constructed in 1846, and the roofing will be Alaskan Yellow Cedar shingles. It was described as being orange in color. Can you produce the 200 Series stain in orange. It does not need to be a brilliant hue?

Nearly a decade ago you produced a custom color for us to use in the restoration of James Madison’s Montpelier in Virginia.
