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.

    Newly built deck. Treated pine wood has been out for almost 3 months. Will applying 1500 stain now be ok or does the wood need to dry out more. Also best items for application process (roller, brush etc?)

    hi,


    i was wondering what steps i need to do.

    aprox 40yr old vertical cedar. i don't think there was anything put on it but i do not know. in some spots where there was once more shade it's black charcoal in some areas...and in other spots with water run off you can see the lighter color brown.and in some spots it seems to be dry brittle grey. not to mention some spots have small green algae on it. and 1 side is fried from the sun and needs to be replaced completely

    what cleaner/stripper do i need? and how much for aprox 3200sq feet..

    will this work? how much will come clean? or will the pressure wash folks have to blast it with their own solution?


    also,....would any semi transparent color be better than others for me as well?


    the below pics are some of the better looking sides

      You do not need to strip this but clean this. Use this kit while pressure washing: https://www.twpstain.com/gemini-s-restore-a-deck-cleaner-and-brightener-kit

      You will need about 4 of the kits for 3200 sq. feet. Any color that you like will work for you for the TWP 1500 stain. That is your preference.

        i really want to make the wood as light as possible, and not have it turn out dark brown before i stain. could you possibly tell me how light it will get by looking at my pics and surmising with the restore a deck?

          TWP Stains · 07/17/2019
          With the prep kits and pressure washing, all the gray should be removed down to the bare wood. It will be much lighter.

    Meant to also indicate that I'd like to have as much UV protection as possible...while trying to preserve the natural look.

    I have a newly installed cedar fence and want to try to preserve the natural look of the wood as much as possible. What color stain would be recommended?

      For CA, you will need the TWP 1501 Cedartone. Cost is $194.95 per pail with free shipping and no sales tax. You can order them right on this page.

    Had deck power washed and stripped. There is a mix of new and old wood. The new wood furred and they sanded prior to staining, ut there are some new boards that are still furred and were stained anyway. Will the stain hold?

    The contractor also wants to apply another light coat (one plus weeks after) because it looks like stain really soaked in on newer boards.

    Also, the water does not seem to bead when it rains. I was told that it should. Is this O.K.?

      TWP being breathable does not bead like a care wax but sheds water. How "new" is the new wood? Did you season the new wood and prep? Pictures would help.

    I applied 1500 series over the weekend to a pool deck with the pool cover on. Stain got through the cover in a few areas and stained the outer white rim of the pool. I tried mineral spirits but it doesn't seem to be budging. Can you recommend something that might remove the stain? Deck looks great, the pool looks terrible. Thanks.

      Try a graffiti remover cleaner from your local paint store and pressure washing.

    The twp 1500 series states that stain should not be applied if rain is predicted within 48 hours. My question is since its very hard to predict pop up showers for the weather people, what is the damage if ther happens to be a quick showere pass by say one day after applying stain?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly

      It should not harm the finish if it has 12-24 hours to dry.

    I have a 5 year old unopened bucket of TWP 1500 in Rustic. It has been in my basement and is still in the plastic as well. It’s been sealed well. Is this stain still good?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 06/11/2019
      Hard to say. Open it and look for any thick clumping or skinning of the stain. If not and it mixes with 100% consistency, then it should be okay.

    Does the 150-200 foot coverage include the 2nd wet on wet coat?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 06/09/2019
      No. Coverage for two coats applied we on wet is about 100-125 sq feet per gallon.

    Can the 1500 be used with sashco big stretch caulk
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 06/04/2019
      Not sure as we have never tried it. It will not "stain" the caulk" so it blends.

    I have a five year old pressure treated pine deck. It was originally stained with TWP and its ready for another application. I still have the original pail in my basement. My question is what prep do I need to do before I apply new stain?

    Serious mold issues on eaves on mid-century modern home. Originally painted with Sikkens 078 Natural wood stain (1 step). What would be the best TWP?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 05/19/2019
      The Sikkens does need to be removed fully first. How depends on which version of Sikkens is on there? Once fully removed, use the TWP 1500 Series.

    Used a 50 /50 mix of 1530 Natural and 1520 Pecan last year on my soffits. Loved how it covered and ease of use. Now notice some areas have a sheen and others areas don't. Can i give it another coat so it all has a sheen ?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 05/16/2019
      TWP is not supposed to have a sheen and that means you over applied it in those areas and that can lead to premature product failure. We would not suggest adding more.

    Angela · 05/15/2019
    Ok, this may be obvious to most, but is the coverage per gallon listed with one coat or two coats? And follow up question is there any issue with "waiting" to get more shipped if you needed another coat?

    Hi! I need a clear stain, no color. Is 1530 the right one?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 05/08/2019
      The 1530 Natural is not clear. You would want the TWP 1500 Clear. It is an option in the drop-down color choices.

        I need UV protection though, so what’s the closest color then? Our deck is located on the 2nd level without any shade at all.
        • We will reply to your comment shortly
          TWP Stains · 05/08/2019
          Honeytone 1515 is the lightest tint with UV protection.

    Has anyone use 1503 (Dark Oak) or 1504 (Black Walnut)? Pictures if possible, hard to imagine from swatch above. Thanks

    The 1500 should be ok if you follow all the deck cleaning and prep steps. Using the Restore a deck stripper and brightener have always worked well for me.
