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 applied 1504 black walnut 2-3 years ago.  Can I use a brightner to clean and reapply?  The two 1504 from 2-3 years ago doesn’t need to be stripped correct?

    I pressure washed and light sanded some doug-Fir benches and will now be applying finish. Which product would be the absolute easiest to maintain (they are for a church and I'll be turning over the care to staff)? -is it possible to do light maintenance with simple oils or similar to extend "refinish" time?

      Use the TWP 1500 Series: https://www.twpstain.com/twp-1500-series

      You can light clean and recoat as needed with the 1500 Series. You cannot apply an "oil" over it, it will fail if you do.

        Should there be any issues changing colors for re-coat? For ex: changing to Natural to avoid over-darkening and minimize overlap lines from novice painters

    I am going to paint a 2-yr old cedar fence for the first time.  What product do you recommend?

    I plan to use your stripper to remove Redwood 1502 and refinish with California Redwood 1511. Current finish is about 5 years old. Will the stripper sufficiently remove old stain in more protected areas (e.g. north side or under rail tops) to allow for the color change, or should I stick with 1502? Thanks for any information.

      Where do you live and it has to be a tinted color to prevent UV graying.

    Hello, we have a very slow siding replacement project that uses rough cut cedar boards for window and door trim, as well as for porch posts and trim. The 20 year old cedar siding that we just tore off was stained black and badly sun damaged from the Oklahoma heat. Our new cedar wood trim is now a variety of ages (1-8 months), colors, and textures because the work has been so slow.

    I can’t figure out what stain to apply. The painter plans to pressure wash the older, grayed boards then stain but stain newer boards with no prep. Painter likes oil based stains but is willing to apply water based. My main consideration is longevity, because I can’t reach the second floor windows myself and I don’t want to hire someone to maintain the trim more often than necessary. We would like to maintain a rustic, lighter/natural toned cedar look if possible. How often would we need to reapply this stain, and what kind of future prep work would need to be done around these 2nd floor windows?

      Clean and brighten all for prep and then apply two coats of the TWP stain. Reapply as needed every 3-6 years. Prep would be the same.

    Hello—We just had a cedar fence installed here in the northeast. We would like to apply the 1500 only, no tinted stain first. With it being vertical, and using only 1500 clear, do you still recommend waiting 4-12 months and do you still recommend the Gemini prep? Thank you.

      Yes to both questions.

        Unless the wood is rough sawn and then you can do it now without prep.

    We have a new pressure treated wood deck. We applied the Olympic Maximum Clear Sealant. It has some yellow tint color, not clear (regret choosing that clear sealant). Question : can we use TWP 1503 stain on top the "Olympic maximum waterproof clear sealant"? Would the TWP1503 dark oak color cover the yellow? will the color after stain turn out good? Can you suggest?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 09/29/2021
      No, you have to fully remove the Olympic first.

    I've done a 1500 wet-on-wet application.  If I decide the color needs to be a little darker can I apply another coat (same color) after it fully dries?

      No, you cannot over apply the TWP.

    Gate recently installed. There is also a fence in back of the same make - rough western red cedar - and age - a couple of months. Have decided to go with TWP 1500. Looking at the fence and comparing to the wood on the front porch, I am thinking of going with the 1530 Natural instead of the Cedartone. I don't really want to change the color of the gate and am afraid the Cedartone will make it darker or oranger. Any thoughts appreciated.

    Should I use the TWP protectant of preservative on natural bamboo fencing?  I’d like to keep the natural color, but still want UV protection.  What color do you recommend?  Which product would be best?

      Sorry but the TWP stains we sell can't be used for bamboo.

    Using RAD (which btw really is awesome rad effective) Attached are some before and after stripping/cleaning/brightening. I stripped, cleaned and power-washed PT lumber deck (of 25 yrs) that had been stained (solid stain, mostly worn off, plus deck had mold w/ deep spores and strong UV damage). Wood came out basically new looking. Very impressed with RAD. Will be using TWP 1500 to finish off. Now deck is looking so unexpectedly good, I'm now looking at the 200 spindles and 163' of railing that was done in Semi-solid Behr and in comparison looks terrible. I know I cannot stain over spindles, so am actually considering painting or replacing them. At his moment all railing solutions are overwhelming. My Question: will stripping and power washing vertical spindles and railing at another date ruin the new stained flooring? Would I be able to spot touch up under the railing with the same stain next year? Thanks in advance.

      If you strip the railings later then it will strip off the TWP on the floors so that will all have to be redone.

    Has anyone ever had results from mixing Pecan (3gal) and Dark Oak (2gal)?I'm looking for a mid-tone brown in the 1500 Series. Thanks

      You can mix colors of the same series. You would have to test this on your own though as we do not have any pictures.

    I'm sorry for my previous one word post. 
    I hired pros to apply this stain to our deck. Within an hour of their finishing, we got a heavy rain for about 10-15 minutes. I called them, concerned, and was told it will be just fine, that the stain already penetrated the wood. But Google says different. Can you tell me whether the stain has been compromised by rain so soon after application? 
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 08/20/2021
      The only way to know is to let the rainwater dry off the deck and then evaluate then to visually see if compromised.

    Last stained deck using One Time stain (uses a bonding as opposed to oil or water based product). Will 1500 TWP cover it well? I don't want to darken the wood any more but also need the UV protection. Which color do you recommend?
