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.

    Only the TWP 1500 series is allowed in your state due to VOC laws.

    We have a brand new cedar deck installed Sept 0f 2013. It is time to think about treating it. We live in central Ohio. The summers and winters can be brutal. Other then keeping it debris free nothing has been done to the deck. We plan on using your cleaner brightener to start. Which series of TWP do you recommend.

    I would use the Gemini Restore Kit for the prep. You should use a little less but hard to say. If the unused portion is sealed 100% then it should be okay.

    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?

    I've just installed a cedar pergola and would like to preserve this natural cedar coloring as much as possible without darkening (or at least minimally darkening) the tone. I am wondering if the Cedartone 1500 color would be the best choice or if a another more 'neutral' tone would better preserve the natural cedar color. Thanks.

    Our builder is installing a new cedar porch ( 6' by 12' ) and 6 steps. Should we stain it now or wait to stain it?

    Yimin, sure you can skip the sanding. It is not a must.

    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....

    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.

    I stripped with Behr stripper, washer/brightener. 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.

    Kevin, cleaner and brightener will remove the mill glaze.

    Before staining a new pressure treated lumber deck in western PA, some suggest I sand surfaces to get rid of mill glaze, others say don't sand, just use a cleaner/brightner to remove glaze - what do you recommend?

    Possibly but it depends on your traffic and wearing.
