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.

    Good Day,
    Is there a limited shelf life for the 1500 series (clear)?
    Can I use leftover sealer from last year's treatment?
    It had been exposed to freezing temperatures (NYC) in an unheated garage.
    If it wasn't exposed to those temps could it be used this year?
    Many thanks......elliot

      12 months if opened. It cannot freeze during that time.

    Hello,
    my deck has been properly prepped with restore a deck cleaner and brightener. I plan to stain with TWP 1500 tomorrow. Forecast for tomorrow is a high of 59 and a overnight low of 37. Am I able to stain with these temperatures?
    Thank you

      It cannot drop below or near freezing the first night after staining.

    Is natural considered clear?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 04/23/2022
      No Natural is tinted. The TWP 1500 Clear is "clear".

    I had a new deck (built in October of 2019) which I stained with the 1500 series (Cedartone) in August of 2020. It has faded considerably and not repelling water as well. I'm assuming that this is since the wood is still fairly new and probably really absorbed the stain.
    Should I re-stain the deck this year? If so, would I prepare it with the Gemini kit?

      Yes. Prep with the kit and reapply this year.

    I have a Hearthstone Log home that I want to restore to its natural wood color. Right now it has an oil based stain that has turned very dark. What cleaning, stripping, brightening and stain products do you recommend? It was originally sealed with Cabot's Bar-D-K and not other stain. About 2 years ago I contracted CertaPro Painters to update the finish and they used Sherwin Williams products and would not listen to my recommendations.

      I had our log home corn cob blasted and it worked fantastic. Then finished with TWP and it’s better than new.

    2 years ago we stained a 20 year old deck with 1500 Series in Dark Oak.  It turned out beautiful! We stained both sides of the deck boards since we have a walk out basement and wanted the underside to look as good as the top.  We now need to reapply stain on the top side of the deck, as it receives direct sunlight and has faded a bit.  The underneath side of the deck still looks great.  My question is, how do we prep the top side of the boards without streaking the joists and support posts underneath?  We have a normal dirt and a small amount of green algae that we need to get cleaned off the top prior to staining; but, I want to be sure whatever product we use doesn't streak the wood surfaces underneath, as we don't plan on restaining those surfaces.

      Thre is no way to prevent some streaking on the undersides. No matter what you will have to touch up down there. Use the Gemini Kit for prep for the top part. When done, go down below and rinse well all dirt, grime, soap, etc from the undersides. Stain the top and touch up the undersides as needed.

    How long do your stains last?

      2-3 years on a deck floor, twice as long on vertical wood.

    Hello.  I’m wanting to apply stain to an existing log cabin which has a dark paint/stain on it currently.  Which product would you recommend for this application?  We’re planning to pressure wash and keep it the same dark brown color.  The last pic is of a rotted log, but shows the color close up.  
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 09/29/2021
      You cannot apply TWP (or any other brand of stain) over the top of a different brand of stain/paint. The current coating will need to come off first. Will pressure washing remove it fully?
      No pics.

        Brandon Dove · 09/29/2021
        The pic upload feature isn’t working. I don’t think pressure washing will get it up. Do you recommend a finish stripper or another recommendation?
        • We will reply to your comment shortly
          TWP Stains · 09/29/2021
          Yes, it does. Either you have an unsupported file or the file is too large.

    1. If applying this on a cedar-sided home, will the boards eventually darken again after being cleaned/brightened? 2. Any suggestions for how to handle the difference in color of older boards which are grayed and new replacement boards?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 09/19/2021
      1. No.2. New and older wood will not blend the first time staining as the new wood is less absorbent so they will stain lighter in color.

    Any tips for getting a good seal on the 5 gallon metal bucket lid for long term storage without using a specific designed lid sealer tool?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 09/12/2021
      Transfer it to a plastic pail and lid so it closes correctly.

    I stained my house 5-6 years ago with 1520. I’m going to stand my addition with the same. I bought a sample and it’s lighter in color. Does this stain darken with time? 
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 08/30/2021
      No, the stain does not darken. It could be that your new wood is lighter in color internally or is less absorbent.

        The wood I’m using is rough cut pine. The wood has been drying since March. Do you recommend waiting until next year to stain? Maybe it will be more absorbent by then? 
        • We will reply to your comment shortly
          TWP Stains · 08/31/2021
          If rough-sawn it will not make a difference. You may want to add some Dark Oak into your Pecan color to darken it so it is closer in color to the older siding.

    I am looking at staining my wood fence (roughly 1900 sq ft) but don’t know if I should do one or two coats. Will it last significantly longer with two? Most of the fence is shaded. It is several years old but still in good shape. It’s never been stained before and I just pressure washed the entire thing.

      You will need two coats applied wet on wet for proper protection. About 15-20 gallons will be needed.

    redid my deck this past Spring with the 1500 series honeytone.  Looks great.. but because i have a sunshade over my deck, i'm starting to get spots of mold on the boards.   what is the best way to periodically get rid of the mold without power washing and ruining my beautiful stained cedar??

      Try a cleaner called Wet and Forget.

    When I had my log home stained, the guy who did it put TWP "shake and shingle" on it and also stained a new wood deck floor with it.  2 years later, on the element exposed parts of the deck, the stain is lifting off the surface of the deck when scrubbing it with a brush.  The covered portions still look good.  I want to re-stain it with something that holds up better.  Do I need to strip any remaining stain off the deck that did not come up with a scrub brush alone?  Also, what stain would be best for a northern facing deck that does not get a lot of sun and is prone to mildew?

      It is an oil-based with trans oxides stain. It has not been tested by the MPI.

    Is 1500 series OK for boat dock? Will it harm marine environment?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 08/03/2021
      Yes, it works for a dock. Avoid getting the stain in the water when applying. Once it is dry, no issues.

    I have stained a section of a cedar fence in TWP 1500/pecan .  It has too much orange to my liking.  Can I add linseed oil to the 1500 to lighten it?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 07/19/2021
      No, the only way to lighten would be to add the TWP in clear.
