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.

I finished a new cedar fence last fall. I just power washed it and am going to let it dry a few days. I was planning on using the TWP 100 series but I see Amazon doesn't carry it. How does the 1500 series compare? What are the differences?

Amazon sellers are not authorized dealers of TWP. Order directly from our website. Both the 100 and 1500 can be bought here.

I have an old cedar deck (unknown year of construction, probably 10 years old). I have completely stripped and sanded (60-80 grit). I am in Central Oregon, so lots of UV exposure but lots of snowfall, too. West facing deck gets lots of exposure and is not covered. I have been looking exclusively at penetrating oil stains: TWP 1500, A&C, Penofin, Storm, and Messmer's. Is one of these more suited for this environment than the others?

Of those, TWP is the only one that is registered as a wood preservative by the EPA. This means much better mildew and mold protection with excellent penetration and UV resistance.

If you want to use the TWP 1500, you will need to remove all of the old coatings first. Do you know what type and brand the dark stain is? How to remove depends on this. Stripping is the preferred way if can be done. If not, you will need to sand.

In the description it doesn't mention airless sprayer, want to be sure it is ok? Any tips? If ok, I've read elsewhere that TWP1500 is thicker than most semi-trans stains. Would .013 tip still be ok or go with .015?

It is for a fence, and the idea of brushing 300+ linear ft of fence or lugging around a 2 or 3 gallon pump sprayer sounds horrible to me. Or would it be best to brush on the initial coat (it's a new fence, aged a year) to get a nice solid coating on, and then as the years go by spray the maintenance coats?

TWP is not a thick stain. You can airless spray with any tip. Wider fans are better for coverage. You can spray the fence, just catch any drips or runs.

If the wood is rough sawn then you can stain now as long as the wood is dry. No prep will be needed. For both sides you have roughly 1100 sq. feet. For two coats applied wet on wet, you will need about 10 gallons.

It cannot drop below freezing at night while the stain is still wet. It can drop below 45 degrees but not while applying. These temps will make the dry and curing time much longer.

I am ready to order the 5 gals that I will need, but wanted to ask about the accuracy of your sample colors. I don't want an orangey deck!

Sample Colors
Hi. I ordered three different samples from you based on the samples shown on your web page. I like the Cedartone, but have a question about it. In my experience, most stains called "cedar", have an orangey tone. Yours does not (looks more natural). I am ready to order the 5 gals that I will need, but wanted to ask about the accuracy of your sample colors. I don't want an orangey deck! Can I safely assume that the color will be true on my 1-year old p.t. pine deck (I applied the sample to a scrap of the same decking.) Thank you.

I am staining cedar siding on my cabin and everything I read said you need 24-48 hours of dry weather after applying. It rained a little the day after I stained which was not supposed to. Should I be worried or concerned about it? I am in Washington and have over half of it left to stain so a day of dry after is going to be tough. Thanks for your help!

You will most likely not have any issues with the siding that had a small amount of rain on it the next day.

Typically needs to be reapplied every 2 years on a horizontal surface like a deck.

Can twp 1500 clear be used on IPE? I am getting conflicting results online.

TWP in general is not suggested for IPE. The clear will let the wood gray naturally (no uv protection), so if that is what you are trying to achieve then you could use the Clear but would not suggest a tinted version of the TWP 1500 on IPE.

Clear has no pigment. For two coats you will need 6 of the 5 gallon pails. For one coat you will need 4 of them.

One coat is probably enough for the Clear on a fence.

RE: TWP 1500 Series 5 Gallon
From a satisfied user:
The TWP stripper/bright ener worked great on our cedar deck even without a pressure washer. Our deck had also been done twice with the Cabots Australian Oil (original and then reformulated). I only needed to lightly sand about 5% to get the remaining residue off and then the whole thing very lightly with an orbital sander to get uniform absorption. Barely spent 2 hours sanding on a 400 sq foot deck. Much easier than my previous experience with removing and recoating using other products. The two coats of TWP 1500 stained it very nicely. The older wood (20+ years) did stain a little darker than some newer (less than three years) replacement boards but that is to be expected.

I have a new cedar shake sided house to do , It's in Ohio. What product would you recommend ?
Any prep that needs to be done other than the usual loose debris dust dirt etc ?
Should I do one coat wait a year and do two coats ?
The house is 10k sf 90% siding
Thanks

For Ohio you need the 1500 Series. Best to apply two coats wet on wet now if the wood is rough. One coat if wood is smooth:

Be Careful Of Fire Hazard With Stain Soaked Rags
I purchased TWP 1500 series to stain my brand new 14x40 cedar deck. The product went on well and when dry, water beads off it like plastic. I’m very happy with the product, performed as expected.

Word of Warning – Be careful with stain soaked rags, dispose of them properly. During the 2 full days it took to paint my deck I put some of the dirty stain soaked rags in one of those tall brown paper lawn bags. Later that afternoon while cleaning up a bit the bag was put in the garage and forgotten. About 10pm that night we felt a BOOM and the whole house shook. A quick search of the house revealed nothing until we opened the garage door. It was completely engulfed! A huge solid wall of fire and smoke that threatened to take my whole house. I made quick use of the garden hose and the battle began. We were lucky that day, it ended up being only a couple thousand dollars in damage, but it could have been so much worse.

re: one coat or two?
Two coats wet on wet would be best. Please use calculator on right to determine product needed.

one coat or two?
I have a 500 sq foot untreated deck. Around five years old. Do I need to apply one or two coats of TWP 1500 (rustic) and how much do I need (will 5 gallons cover 2 coats)? Thanks in advance.

re: How long will TWP last?
Opened pails of TWP will not last a few seasons.

How long will TWP last?
Since my new deck will only need one coat initially, should I go ahead and buy individual 1 gallons or will the 5 gallon last a few seasons once opened?

RE: TWP 1500 Series 5 Gallon
Heath, similar but not same. This article explains colors better: www.twpstainhelp.com/.../

Best to use the Gemini Restore Kit for prep.

re: Difference between Natural and Clear
Please read this about colors:

www.twpstainhelp.com/.../

Coats are the same. No UV protection at all in the Clear which means it grays in a few months.

Difference between Natural and Clear
I would like to know the difference between the Natural 1530 and Clear 1500 (No UV Protection); Color, Protection, Durability, Number of coats needed and finally how does it affect if the Clear does not have UV Protection.

I really appreciate your feedback.

Hi i wanted to know how often do you have to apply the twp 1500?

That varies depending on the wood type, age of the wood, vertical or horizontal wood, and weather exposure. Hard to answer without knowing your scenario.

What should I use to apply the stain? A certain king of brush or roller? I am not a professional painter and will be doing this myself.
