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.

We have used this product twice on our pressure-treated wood deck (. It applies easily and looks terrific when done. We are DIYers with limited experience with this sort of project, and had no trouble following the application directions. We had to address a lot of wood damage before applying it--severe UV damage, mold and mildew--but with the right prep, we couldn't be happier with the outcome. The second time we used it, we did over-apply a bit and had a lot of shiny excess stain after a few hours of drying. We read the tips here on the website and the next day we wiped off the excess using a light misting of mineral spirits and shop rags. Easy fix and it looks great. Never any peeling, which is just what we wanted, and it made our heavily damaged wood look better than we thought possible. I love finding a product that works as well as advertised.

    I had to replace some of my deck stairs, but missed the window of time to stain them properly with weather conditions. I still have some stain left from two summers ago. If I have a five day window of time where temps above 50 during the day, can I stain them with a coat of stain so it’s protected during the winter?

      It would best to prep and stain in the Spring. One Winter will not harm the wood.

    Please advise if it's okay to stain new rough cut curved cedar deck support braces now - we live in North Carolina.

      You can stain new rough sawn cut now as long as it is clean and dry.

    We've stripped, brightened and sanded our 5 year old deck over the summer. We already stained the verticals with 1500 Cedartone and are getting ready to do the horizontals. For the best coverage on this first time, would you recommend brush or rolling? Also, how long after staining can we walk on it. We are in a dry period today but have a large party scheduled for tomorrow night and then more rain the next day. We are thinking about staining this morning if it is truly usable after 24 hours.

      Use a stain pad or brush. Do not use a roller. Dries in about 12-24 hours.

    Looking to reseal our redwood deck in California. The previous owner used Australian Timber Oil from Cabot, "Natural" finish, but I'd like something a bit more sun-and-heat durable. Could I apply the 1500 series right over the old finish, or would I need to sand the wood down first?

    Hi,
    What is the shelf-life of a sealed, half full gallon of 1501?
    I wish to combine it with a fresh gallon of 1501 and use it, rather than have to seek a disposal facility.
    Thanks in advance.

    Hi,
    I have a 12' x 24' cedar deck (see photo) that I have treated with TWP every two years since 2013 (2013, 2015, 2017 - three total applications since new). I have used 1501 Cedartone each time. It has progressively gotten darker over time and with each application.

    I was contemplating using Clear 1500 in hopes of preventing it from getting darker, but 1500 has no UV protection. Was also contemplating using Natural 1530.

    Do you have a recommendation on:
    1) reuse of Cedartone 1501?
    2) Natural 1530?
    3) Clear 1500?

    Can UV protectant be added to 1500?


    Thanks in advance for any recommendation.

    Really love your product.
    Regards,
    Doug

      The deck after re-application of 1500. It turned out great! thanks TWP.

      For prep this year, use the RAD Stripper/Brightener Kits so you are down to the bare wood. You can then use the Natural, Cedartone or any color that you like. Do not use Clear unless you want the wood to gray naturally.

    We have a redwood deck and pergola that had Armstrong applied about 5 years ago. That 'redwood' stain color turned really dark red brown. Now it's being sanded down for a refresh. Can 1511 go on next? Any other prep needed? Our old TWP 511 'California Redwood' on a redwood fence turned pretty yellow on rough redwood--Is the newer stuff any more "pink" like fresh redwood- or other color suggestion for that? Thanks.

    Applying pine ship-lap to our chimney. Id love to have a black stain and I see the closest you have is black walnut. From northern MN, so waiting months is not possible to stain.. Should I just wait until next spring?
    Also, wondering which product would be best. Thanks!

    I just sprayed my pergola with the 1501 Cedarwood. I touched up areas that the stain looked light. I now have good coverage but notice the second time through shows a darker richer look which I really like. Should I spray another coat over the entire pergola or just wait until next year? Hopefully, there needs to be no prep work. Thank you.

      Wait until next year. Prep by lightly washing with water to remove dirt.

    Just fully sanded my 300 sq ft deck in Massachusetts. Any recommendations for stain? Was looking at the 1500 series, Pecan. Brush or roll it on too?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 07/25/2019
      You will need the 1500 Series for MA. For final prep, use the Gemini Restore Kit to open up the wood grain pores after sanding. Apply with a stain pad or brush, do not roll it on.

    I have a redwood deck/ front porch that had been painted by the previous homeowner. My painter stripped it down and asked me what I wanted to do with the deck. I chose a semi-transparent stain from Sherwin Williams (my painter’s preferred brand). After one coat it wasn’t even close to the color I chose and it got very dark. My painter then told me it’s because the stain was applied to redwood and the color was most likely representative of being applied to a different / lighter wood. He is pushing to use a solid stain (which he wanted to use from the beginning). I’d much rather have a clear applied, but he’s saying it won’t last a year. The deck / porch gets a lot of sun and foot traffic. I want to keep the color as light as possible. Any suggestions ?

    Installed new decking 2 years ago. Last year (2018) applied one coat of TWP 1530 stain. I'm looking to apply a second coat this year. After cleaning, I'd like to apply another coat this year. Do I apply using the "wet on wet" method at this point using a brush?

    Thanks,
    John Smith

      Just one coat this year. In two years you can do the wet on wet.

    I have a new kiln dried cedar fence - Its been installed for about a month. I plan on using the Restore a Deck Kit to prep the wood prior to staining, but I would really like a dark, dark stain, similar to Behr's semi transparent slate stain. I am worried that Black Walnut may not be dark enough, especially since you recommend applying only 1 coat for new wood. Would it be possible to apply two coats to get that dark look?

      Is the wood rough sawn or smooth?

        It’s smooth. Sanded on three sides.

          TWP Stains · 07/19/2019
          Then only one coat for the new wood. Two coats will not soak in correctly.

    We have a 4 year old deck that was stained with Behr semi-transparent stain. To say it is a mess would be a huge understatement. We have power washed it, tried the Sherwin Williams stripper and ended up returning it as it did absolutely nothing. We are considering the Restore-A-Deck Stripper and Brightener. What are the chances Restore-A-Deck can remove this water based semi-transparent stain? I am really trying to avoid the whole sanding thing.

          That is not semi-transparent but a solid opaque stain in appearance. It cannot be stripped fully. You will need to power sand to get this all off.

            That's what I was afraid of. The Behr can says semi-transparent but this is what it looks like. I wish I had researched this product before using it. Thank you for your help. When I get it sanded and stripped, would you recommend TWP 100 or 1500 series?

              Behr makes terrible products. You may be able to strip off a decent amount with the RAD stripper and the additives: https://www.twpstain.com/wood-stain-strippers/rad-stripper-additives

              You will still need to sand but it should make the sanding easier. If you use them, let the stripper/additives dwell for an hour or so on deck before pressure washing off.

                So I took your advice and ordered the RAD stripper, gel and booster. I have to say I was not overly optimistic but thought I have to get this crap off my deck, what did I have to lose? I cannot believe the difference!! We are stripping the deck in stages and it is truly a messy job BUT as you can see by the pic, there is hope!!! I was prepared to paint the entire thing because I did not think we would get the Behr not-so-semi-transparent crap off. Thank you so much for your help, advice and most of all for carrying a product that works. Now I feel comfortable ordering your semi-transparent stain.

    We live in Illinois and just had a new cedar deck installed a few days ago. Our contractor said the wood was already dry, so we did not need to let it weather. Just wanted to confirm we can proceed w/staining using the 1500.

    I've done it and got fantastic results. I'm out here in the field and have tried many different things. I don't want to crawl through stain to back wipe. That's just me and my customers are fine with the time and money spent.
