TWP 1500 is a Semi-transparent Oil-Based wood stain and preservative that is allowed in all 50 states.

The 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.

RE: TWP 1500 Series 5 Gallon and Gemini Cleaner/Brighte ner Kit
Quoting Mike Martin:
I live in Chicago, IL and have a new deck (Southern Yellow Pine) that is about 1 yr old that is ready for stain. Is the cleaner/brightener needed before applying the stain or can I just pressure wash the wood? If the cleaner/brightener is needed before applying the stain, what is the shortest and longest time frame that I have between cleaning the deck to applying the stain?

Use the Gemini Restore Kit while pressure washing. Stain about 48 hours later and try to stain within 2 weeks of the prep.

Quoting Brian Reed:
We live in MO and moved into a home in June 2016 where the deck (pt lumber) and a wooden fence were both built a few days before we moved in. We are now in a position to stain them. We will order a lot to both clean and brighten the woods, but we were wondering if we should apply 1 or 2 coats of the twp stain? Thanks for the advice.

2 coats applied wet on wet is the correct way.

Live in NY, pressure treated pine, full sun. Previously used Benjamin Moore arborcoat oil stain. Wood is dry, peeling, and ugly. Do I need to strip or sand before using TWP cleaner/brighter/stain?

Arborcoat will need to be sanded off then the Gemini Restore Kit before using the TWP 1500 Series.

I have a 22-month old pressure-treated deck with pergola and lattice that has had nothing done to it. I live in OH. Deck receives full sun most of the day. I plan to use the Restore A Deck kit but unsure which stain, the 1500 or another?

You will need to use the TWP 1500 for Ohio.

Quoting garyg:
I have a pressure treated wood deck 4 months old. Had plan on using linseed oil and turpentine, however your 1500 looks like a good alternative.

Can TWP 1500 be used in future following a season with linseed oil application or do I need to use 1500 from the start?

Deck approx. 750 sq. ft. do I do 2 coats immediately or? will I need two 5 gal to do the two coats?

You cannot apply the TWP over the Linseed. You would have to strip and start over. See this about new wood:

www.twpstainhelp.com/.../

Only one coat as the article stats. Make sure to prep first. One 5 gallon should work.

Project is a Treehouse 20' in the air. Cincinnati OH. Except for the exposed top rails apprx 80 sq ft. The rest is mostly vertical. Photo avail if needed. Already cleaned the wood with bleach/chlorine & it is much clearer & brighter and rinsed it with plain water & No gray left. Do I still want the Wood Brightener? If so, how is it applied & rinsed? Many areas cannot be reached without a sprayer. Metal roof covers Treehouse, no UV exposure, bridge floor is vinyl covered synthetic. 6 yrs ago used All-In-One, long gone. Hope to get a real quick reply?? Thank you.

If it is clean, then you do not need to use the brightener. It will help to lighten the wood some if needed.

Quoting Robert Wang:
I live in Orange County , CA and have a new redwood deck, ~600 sf, that I am ready to stain. I've let the wood sit for about 5-6 months now. From the instructions on your website I understand I should clean the deck first using the Restore-A-Deck kit and then stain. Also, I want to make sure that only the 1500 series stains are available to use in my area. Could you please verify this. I would apprecate any other advice too. Thanks

Yes you can only use the TWP 1500 Series for your area. Prep with the kit and apply one cat this year. Another light coat in 12-18 months. To coats every two years after that.

I live in San Antonio, TX and am going to clean and stain a 9 year old cedar garage door. I am thinking about using the TWP1503 Dark Oak preceeded by the Gemini Restore. Their is some peeling and flaking, but other than that the door is in pretty good shape. Any suggestions?

You have to remove all of the current coating and the Gemini Kit is not a stain stripper. Not sure the type of coating that is on the door but you may need to sand and or strip. Brighten when done.
