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.

    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?

      Strip and brighten and then you can use the TWP 200 Series. The old coating has to come off no matter what.

        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?

    Does the 200 series have mildewcide? What’s best to use on cedar shakes to also prevent mold and mildew?

    What is the best way to apply your product to a cedar shake roof? Can it be sprayed with a pump sprayer or should it be rolled with a thick nap roller? Or a combination of both?

      Best to spray and then back wipe to catch any drips or runs.

    I have new cedar shingles on the walls and new redwood deck. Should I use the 200 on shingles and the redwood deck? Or should I use the 1500 on the redwood deck?
    It would be easiest to use the 1500 o both. See this about new wood:

    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.

    The 200 Series would be best and does come in different colors. You do not pre-treat them.

    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?

    This product will extend the life of your shingles, not shorten it. It is a penetrating oil based stain that will replenish the lost oils of the wood keeping them from becoming brittle and cracking. Prep to remove and dirt and oxidation with the Gemini Restore Kit.

    LinZoid:
    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!!

    You can use the same series for all. Use the 1500 Series.

    I am interested in TWP for the staining of the exterior of my 1929 home that has cedar shingles stained with a solid dark brown stain (now faded after many years. Does the TWP product come in a solid color dark brown? This is in Maine. Thanks

    Sorry, but it does not come in a solid color and it cannot be applied over your solid color stain.
