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 are using 1503 to stain and preserve a PIER that is L shaped and combined 274 sq feet. Will one 5 gallon bucket allow for coverage? I am confused about 1 or 2 coats. The pier is at least 10 years old and was stained before. Now its just grey and we've replaced a few boards. Its otherwise in good shape.

      Two coats after prep. About 3-4 gallons.

    Hi. Getting ready to apply 1504 - Black Walnut next weekend. How many coats do you recommend? All remaining blue/white/gray paint has been/will removed from surface. I removed 4-5 layers of existing paint and finish sanded the entire surface with 80 grit orbital. Do you recommend wet on wet if one application do I really need to wipe excess if I don't go heavy? Or if I'm doing two coats over a 24 hour span do I need to wipe excess. Just wondering how to get access to wiping excess if any without markup up or should I just mark it up by walking on it and backbrush out?

      Just do the one coat since you sanded the deck.

          Only one coat, do not apply a second coat after 15 minutes to sanded wood. No need to wipe unless some stain does not soak in after a few hours or so.

    Is the coverage per gallon quoted for TWP 1500 for 1 coat or 2? Does Mahogany typically require 2 coats?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 09/09/2020
      One coat for the coverage and only one coat for Mahogany.

    I have a new redwood arbor with brick floor. The redwood is about 3 months old and has been in direct Northern California sunlight. I calculate the total square footage of the structure to be about 2200 square feet. I plan to use 1516 Rustic for staining. How much stain would you estimate to use?

      We would need a total sq footage of all wood that is being stained.

    I previously used TWP 1500 in Cedartone several years ago on my cedar fence. We didn't like the color as it was too orange. I want to go with the TWP 1500 Dark Oak this time. Do I need to strip the old TWP or just clean and brighten?

    A friend stained our deck three years ago with TWP and it was great. We just powerwashed and are planning on staining the deck ourselves this year. Do we use one coat or two? Can we upgrade from 100 series to 1500?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 07/17/2020
      Stick with the same color and series. We would need to see a picture of your prep to determine how many coats are needed.

    Calculated square footage for my deck, roughly 1031 sq ft, deck has very worn stain, will be doing strip and brighten first. Is the 1000 sqft coverage per 5 gal based on one or two coats? Was planning on getting 10 gals anyways, should that be enough?

    Will also be doing a two tone look - Light stain on top of railing and floor, and dark on verticals.

      For 2 coats you would need about 8-10 gallons but that does vary based on wood type and the age of the wood.

    Misread. It's calculated based on 200sq.ft. coverage/gallon.

    I will be stripping and refinishing my redwood deck in direct sunlight as there is no shade around my deck. I live in San Diego and the temp where I live reaches 88-100+ degrees In the summertime with about 15% humidity. I will be using TWP 1515 honeytone stain. So, in high temps, How can I determine if the wood is ready for the 2nd coat without waiting too long?

      Hi Frank. I also live in San Diego and stained last month. 30 mins gave the first coat enough time to soak in, but w/o drying. It dries slowly, so I probably could've waited longer. I also allowed the second coat to soak for 30 mins before wiping off excess. It is easy to recoat annually or whenever you think you need it. Wiping off all excess before it gets too tacky is critical.

      If doing a second coat it needs to be applied wet on wet or 20-60 minutes after the first coat. Typically decks that are older and very dried out will require the wet on wet application.

    Can I get by with one coat of stain for a fence? Also how many gallons? Will be using a airless spray painter on 165 ft long, 6ft tall privacy fence on both sides
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 07/10/2020
      One coat may not cover correctly as wood fences are very absorbent. For 2000 sq feet, you would need about 20 gallons for two coats.
      • We will reply to your comment shortly
        Milos · 07/14/2020
        That comes to 100sq.ft. coverage per gallon, much lower than what's specified. Is this typical for fence due to high absorbance?
        • We will reply to your comment shortly
          TWP Stains · 07/14/2020
          100 Sq feet per gallon for 2 coats is correct. The spec is one coat.

    What is the shelf life for the stain? Can a open gallon/5gallon be usable the next year or so? Best recommendation

    I used Red Wood, love the product not super thrilled about the color and that is my fault. I can live with it, the question is: If i want to "change colors" without stripping and starting all over.. How long can one expect to wait for the new stain to fade and to switch to another TWP color? What are my best options to achieve my goal of altering to color more towards a natural/ brown stain. Thanks in advance

      You will have to strip to switch colors. You can do that now or latter.

    Is it safe to touch up the sides of the deck boards after the top is dry?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 06/16/2020
      You would have to be very careful to not leave spot stains on top of the boards.

    I stripped and sealed my deck with the TWP 1500 7 years ago, do you recommend re-stripping and sealing or just paint/seal over it? Thanks!

    I just stained my deck but I feel another coat would be best on the floor. I ordered another gallon. Can I simply apply it over the last cost if its been a week since my application?

      You do not need more and adding too much at this point could result in it not curing correctly and being sticky and tacky.

          Let it cure/dry for a few days or longer.

    I used some of your stain a couple of years ago on my fence and want to order more. I'm not sure what color I used and want to use the same color again. Is it possible you have some sort of record of my purchase? Dave Rouch, 3410 Morris Ave., Pueblo, CO 81008. Thanks, Dave
