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 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 was led to believe the same thing.......after a disaster of a stain job, I've been working for three years to correct the problem. The stain will not "take" and you'll have to completely strip it and go thru all the effort to get your deck ready for proper staining.

    We have a rough cut cedar arbor built abt 4 weeks ago. Ready to stain and family member recommended TWP —- should I go with the TWP 100 series or the 1500 series? Ready to order.

    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.

    I have a wooden arbor at the front of my house that was originally stained in Nov 2008 with TWP Shake and Shingle in color Butternut 206. This stain in 50% of areas (in sun) looks incredible still. However, it needs to be refreshed due to some areas that face east and get beaten up by sun. What product (100 or 1500, etc.) would you recommend to redo this arbor with?

    On wood like Mahogany, stain is suppose to be applied in small sections so that extra stain can be wiped off. You are suppose to apply the stain, let it sit for about 20 minutes and then wipe off the stain that didn't soak into the wood. Looks like you pick one of those cheap fixer guys instead of paying for someone who knows what they are doing. Oh, and after the stain dries, you're suppose to put a clear coat on top.
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 06/06/2019
      No, you cannot add a clear coat on top of a deck stain like TWP. In addition, you can apply TWP to all the wood and back wipe the areas as needed within 60 minutes. You do not have to do this in sections.

    Had a local painter apply onto my mahogany deck within my screened in porch this past Monday. Some spots appear dry while other spots appear shiny and still wet. Is this normal over a day later?

    Good Morning. I am going to chemically strip the peeling acrylic finish and stain with TWP 1500 series. I am only going to do the horizontal surface, as the rails are okay. Could you tell me which color will best match the rails? It is a very old weathered deck.
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 06/03/2019
      That stain looks very thick like a solid stain. A stripper will not remove a solid stain. You would need to sand it off.

        Amy · 06/03/2019
        I was going to use the stripper first just on the deck floor and then sand it. Could you suggest what color would best match to railings?
        • We will reply to your comment shortly
          TWP Stains · 06/03/2019
          Maybe Cedartone but not really possible to match this as it is a solid color. Might want to try some samples: https://www.twpstain.com/stain-samples

            Amy · 06/03/2019
            I am not going to be overly fussy about the match. It looks so bad now, anything will be an improvement. If you look at the picture and see how peeled it is, do you think using a chemical stripper would help at all, or should I just sand it?

              TWP Stains · 06/03/2019
              The stripper with pressure washing will remove some, making it easier to sand.

    I live in Massachusetts. I have an older PT deck that was treated with Behr opaque acrylic stain (more of a paint really). It is a peeling nightmare after only 1 year. I would like to chemically strip it, sand it and then apply an oil based stain such as yours (probably the dark oak). Do you have any recommendations?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 05/13/2019
      Stripping will not remove it fully so power sanding will be needed. After full sanding, you can use the TWP 1500 Series.

    I am redoing my deck horizontal surfaces. I will be powerwashing. My deck over hangs onto the lake. Is the wood/deck cleaner environmentally safe? There is no way of me preventing it from going into the lake when powerwashing.
