TWP 1500 is a Semi-transparent Oil-Based wood stain and preservative that is allowed in all 50 states.

The new TWP® 1500 formula is designed to penetrate better, dry faster and outperform the previous TWP® 500 series formula.

TWP® 1500 Series is an EPA registered wood preservative which prevents structural damage and wood decay on exterior above ground wood surfaces such as fencing, decking, wood siding, log homes, and roofing. TWP® 1500 Series resists water absorption that causes warping, cracking and splitting as well as preventing freeze damage in colder climates.

TWP® 1500 Series is a low VOC preservative with special U.V. absorbing pigments that prevent unsightly wood graying, darkening and fading. The selected mildewcides inhibit the growth of mold and mildew which assist in preventing premature discoloration.

TWP® 1500 Series will keep your wood beautiful, fresh and looking new longer. The ease of application and maintenance will allow you to enjoy your investment for years to come.

I'd like to use the 1500 series redwood stain on my 16'x16' pavilion. It's made from large cedar timbers. it's a fairly open structure with tin roof. I'm assuming the deck stain is the way to go. It's been a year since constructed.

Yes, the TWP 1500 is the correct product for this.

Does your calculator assume you're covering the underside of the deck as well? Thanks!

I ask because I have. 20x45 deck with about 100 feet of railing and your calculator says to get 13 gallons. My deck however sits 6 inches above the ground so I will not be staining the underside of deck. Thanks.

No it does not consider the underside nor do you need to stain the underside. For two coats and your deck, you will need about 11-13 gallons.

Also, while there are still overall traces of the original stain, there are slightly gray areas, some algae, etc. Given this how should I prep the deck fro re-application?

Yes jut one good coat now and another in 12-18 months after a light cleaning is best for newer wood. Prep with the Gemini Restore Kit.

What 1500 color is best? California Redwood sounds good, but is that for lighter woods to look like redwood? Or is that the best for me? I like the slight red it used to have. Thanks!

I would highly suggest you try some samples to test first and colors vary based on your wood, age, prep, etc.

I prepared this deck by hand sanding...yes, hand sanding the old stain off to get to the original wood. The original stain was an opaque redwood, which was peeling. The deck is 25 years old. I was unable to completely remove the stain/paint in the corners of the rails and deck. I want to use a pigmented product that will cover the areas that I could not completely sand off. A deck replacement would have been several thousand dollars. Restraining/painting costs much less. Would the top 1500 satisfy my clients needs?

You cannot cover a solid stain with a penetrating semi-transparen t stain like TWP. The solid stain will show through.

You cannot apply TWP over the Sikkens. You should strip off the remaining sikkens with the Restore A Deck stripper we sell. Use the RAD Brightener after to neutralize. You can still stain through October. Just make sure it does not drop below freezing the night you apply the TWP.

Maintenance coat TWP 1500 Cedartone
Applied TWP 1500 Cedar-tone to my deck last year. I am contemplating a maintenance coat this spring. Do I use the Gemini deck restore and brightener or something else?
I used about 4-1/2 gals out of the 5-gal pail last year. Since it is a maintenance coat, will I use less this year? If I order another 5-gal pail, is it possible to reseal the unused portion to use the following year?

RE: TWP 1500 Series 1 Gallon
Hi, I am really tired after stripping, brightening, washing, all of them TWO times in order to remove the previous stain.

Now, Is it a MUST to lightly sand the short fuzzy thing? Can I just leave it there and proceed to stain with TWP?

If I sand, I have to knock down the nails, then sand by hand, then water wash....Would it be OK to skip this step? I think I may be taking on more than I can handle now....

Thanks
Quote
RE: TWP 1500 Series 1 Gallon
Yimin, this is normal when using a stripper. Try to lightly sand the deck with 60 grit paper. When done rinse the deck down well to remove the sand dust.
Quote
RE: TWP 1500 Series 1 Gallon
I stripped with Behr stripper, washer/brighten er. Now some of the wood board has a layer of fuzzy very short "hair", the color of wood. Is it something that I did not wash/scape off, or is it wood fiber? Did I do something wrong? I did not use power wash. Just regular garden hose with a nozzle that can concentrate water stream and kind of like power wash.

Do I need to sand off the fuzzy short "hair" before stain?

thanks for your advice.

TWP 1500 Natural
I am thinking about using Natural (1530) for a T&G white pine screened porch ceiling. I assume that provides no UV protection, but I also assume that since it's a ceiling and gets no sun, that would be ok. I assume it will darken up the pine a little and help prevent mildew. Do you agree with this?

re: New Redwood Deck in SF
You could use any of the tints for redwood. The lightest tint is the Honeytone. Take inconsideration that the lighter the tint the quicker the sun will fade the color. You should wait 4-12 months before staining then prep by cleaning and brightening the wood.

No need to do the bottom.

New Redwood Deck in SF
I have a new redwood deck in San Francisco which faces west and gets plenty of afternoon sun. It is a nice mix of heartwood and sapwood and I would like to preserve the color contrast. I was going to use the 1500 clear but realized it does not offer UV protection. Will the 1502 redwood maintain the color contrast? Is there another color that offers UV protection with minimal tint? Also, is there any benefit to staining the bottom of the deck as well? Thank you.

re: develop wear patterns in the deck color from foot traffic
Natural has a decent amount of tint. TWP will wear eventually. This varies on the amount of traffic. It could be 1.5-3 years. The key is to re coat before the stain goes to full failure.

Walk off/wear patterns on deck
Hi, I\'m curious if 1500 Series deck stains would start to develop wear patterns in the deck color from foot traffic? We\'d like to go with Cedartone on our 5/4 pressure treated deck, but if wear patterns are a problem we may go with Natural since it looks to be closer to the color of the wood itself as a lighter stain.
Thanks!

re: staining 25 yr old PTL deck
1. Use the Gemini-Restore- A-Deck Kit to clean and brighten the deck.
2. One kit should be enough for a 30x12 deck.
3. Minimum temperature should be 45 degrees.
4. Typically needs to be redone every 2-3 years.
5. If the stain is gone then nothing else is needed.

staining 25 yr old PTL deck
I have an old pressure treated lumber deck about 30ft x 12 ft with wood rails and stairs. It is all greyed out. the deck is on the west side of the house and gets sun from noon to sunset.

1. What do I need to do to prep it for staining? Most of the deck has not seen any stain for over 5 years (how long I own the home- do not know if it was ever done)
2. How much of each item will I need?
3. The temp is hovering between 40-60 deg. on Long Island, should I wait till the spring or can I still stain it before the leaves fall?
4. How often will I need to restain it?

5. I had put Duckback semi transparent on the stairs but most of the lumber has greyed out after 1.5 yrs. We rebuilt the stairs 2 years ago. Anything I need to do special to prep this section.

thank you.

re: 2 coats ? wet on wet ?
Wet on wet means you coat the entire deck then reapply the second coat right away while the first coat is still wet. New wood only needs 1 coat and you should let the wood dry for a few months or longer then clean and brighten to prep. We like stain pads for application.

Hi,

I live in SE PA and have an outdoor shower. I\'ve used sections of red cedar fencing for the enclosure, which I installed in Feb of this year. The enclosure sits on above ground concrete piers that are the footers for the deck posts of a raised deck. The cedar gets very little direct sunlight and is not in contact with the ground. I am thinking of redwood, rustic, or a color that will complement my maderia-colored Trex decking, which I would use this for the sides facing out. However, I\'m concerned these colors will make the interior surfaces too dark since it under the deck so I would like to use an untinted,clear product. Is this type of product available in the 1500 series? Thanks

For optimal results you should always remove the previous coating as much as possible prior to using a new or different stain such as TWP. This will give you maximum penetration and adhesion to the wood.
