Best TWP Stain for Vertical Siding

by TWP Stains

Best TWP Stain for Vertical SidingVertical wood siding can give your home a very appealing look as long as it is taken care of. Like all exterior wood, vertical siding needs to be maintained. Protecting vertical siding from the harmful effects of weather exposure can increase its longevity while helping to enhance the natural beauty of the wood. Protecting vertical siding with a quality professional grade wood preservative like TWP is the optimal choice. But which TWP stain is best for vertical siding?

The Best TWP Stain for vertical siding is the newly formulated TWP 1500 Series Wood Stain. This state of the art wood preservative penetrates better, dries faster, and outperforms the former TWP 500 Series formula of wood stain. The 1500 Series is an EPA registered wood preservative that is compliant in all 50 states due to its low 250 VOC formula. This means excellent protection but yet environmentally friendly.

The TWP 1500 Series Stain is easy to apply to vertical siding and can be cleaned and recoated as maintenance is needed. This ensures many years of lasting beauty and protection. TWP 1500 Series is the best stain for vertical siding because it is a semi transparent stain that preserves natural wood color by blocking out harmful and discoloring UV rays. The absorbing pigments of TWP 1500 prevent graying, darkening and fading to preserve your vertical wood siding’s natural beauty. TWP 1500 Series vertical siding stain also blocks out water and moisture to prevent cracking, warping and splitting as well as damage due to freezing temperatures in colder climates.

Another great reason that the 1500 Series is the best TWP stain for vertical siding is its ability to prevent wood rot. The selected mildewcides help to inhibit the growth of mold and mildew, which contribute to wood rot, decay and structural damage. TWP 1500 Series Wood Stains will ensure long lasting beauty and protection on all your vertical siding surfaces allowing you to enjoy your investment for years to come.

Hello, we purchased a house with a rough sawn cedar siding and need to stain it. It was stained decades ago but there isn’t much if any of the stain left. Please see photos. Can we use TWP 1500? Can we spray & back brush? Should we use some soap/cleaner when power washing? (I tried to test-wash the right side of the garage door with a heavily diluted TSP, seemed to work well). Would you recommend something else than TSP? Thanks!

Sounds good, thank you. Will consider it. Based on reading some TWP product reviews, there are customers who prefer TWP 300 over the new TWP 1500. Seem it has a better coverage and a bit more solids. Any reason why I should use the new product? What makes it better than the TWP 300 for this project?

One last question, please. What about TWP 100 vs TWP 1500? Based on what I read, TWP penetrates more easily. Would it make sense to order samples of both and test? Thanks!!

I understand the 100 and new 1500 both require “1.5” coats on weathered uncoated cedar siding, so the work required to apply will not be a huge consideration in my choosing.  What is the disadvantage of a stain with a higher solid content?

I see that most of the questions regarding Cleaners are asked about decking. I have Cedar siding and it has become discolored on the bottom two boards probably from dirt bouncing up on the siding and my not doing the staining as often as I should have. Do I use the same Cleaner that is for Decks?
How often can TWP be used ? Every other year? or is that too often? How should the siding be prepped? Is power washing enough? My house seems to only need recoating in areas where the sun hits it on the South and East sides. The North and West sides are in quite good shape even after several years. So do I still recoat the whole house? On the can it says TWP101-5

I have a some pressure treated green wood beams and headers that I want stained black. I’m thinking penetrating as I can’t risk anything that might peal. The location is nasty and I don’t want to do it often. My neighbor recommended you. Thoughts?

Our home has exterior pine log siding which needs restaining. We had previously used Sikkens oil stain. Can we use TWP 1500 on top of the Sikkens which has peeled and faded with some prepping?

I have board and batten rough sawn siding that was installed about 9 months ago. Would you recommend 100 or 1500? Also, I have read that prep steps are minimal for rough cut lumber. Can you confirm preparation steps?

What is the best way to open and pour or get the stain out of a 5 gallon can into a sprayer? I will need at least 10 gallons of stain for my siding & would like to save on the shipping by buying the 5 gallon cans, however large paint cans are notoriously difficult to open and pour from. Any helpful hints &/or ideas?

We are build a new home and are using clear Grade A T and G cedar siding on a few exterior faces of the home as well as under the soffits and underside of the patio roof covering. We live in South Dakota. Exterior faces of house will be on the south side of the house, but our weather is extreme. We want to use something very natural cedar colored and that shows the grain thru the
stain, but offers UV and water protection. Our builder wants to stain before installing. What would you suggest and can this be stained before install as planned?

I have a house with vertical pine siding which was stained over 20 years ago with Cabot’s Semi-solid oil based stained. It has held up remarkably well, but the house needs to be retained as you can imagine. The color of the house is Cabot’s “Dune Gray” which is like very much. Could I use your “Cape Cod” gray or the “Prairie Gray” – not sure yet on which gray would be most like the Dune Gray. Should I use the TWP stain in the 100 series if compliant with state regulations. Or would the 1500 series be better and can your stain be applied directly over the current stain after it is cleaned?

I apologize if this went through before, but it acted weird on my end so I will re-post.

I have a new 64′ cedar fence and two older front cedar fences sections (each side of house). Cleaned the front with scrub brush and water + Clorox and then power washer. You estimate order indicates wet-on-wet application. What does wet-on-wet mean? Also, living in North Texas, Dallas Fort Worth area, with many 100+ temps a year and upper teens 2 – 3 times per year. Which is better 100 or 1500 for my use?
TY in advance

The exterior of my 20 year old, 3 story home is rough cedar siding. It has been stained several times with the now discontinued Glidden Endurance semi-transparent oil deck stain, mixing 2 gallons of clear tint base to 1 gallon cedartone. Can I now apply the TWP 1500 stain over this? What prep is recommended? Can I mix the clear TWP 1500 stain with colors to get the tint I want?

[quote name=”TheSealerStore”][quote name=”Erick”]In above topic (Best TWP Stain for Vertical Siding) it states TWP 1500 is best for vertical siding. Is 1500 better than TWP 100 and for what reason?

Thanks[/quote]
TWP 1500 has more pigment and can offer a little better UV protection because of this.[/quote]

Thanks. So if a can of 100 and 1500 was available TWP Company recommends the 1500 for siding?
