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'm currently working on a large backyard renovation that includes 170 feet of (brand new) cedar fence, and a new deck. After doing some research, I have decided that the TWP 1500 series stain is probably my best choice when it comes time to complete my project.

    If you have ever seen the Food Network show "The Kitchen", they have an outdoor set with a wooden fence. I love the color of it, and I'm hoping that I can get a similar result in finishing mine.

    Which of the TWP 1500 series colors would you think comes closest to this color? I have looked at all of the sample photos for the various colors, but still would really appreciate your advice.

    My fence is made of rough-sawn cedar pickets on pressure treated framing and top-cap. I'm in Pennsylvania.

    Thanks!

      Rustic 1516 would be closest but it would be a little redder. Another option might be 4 parts 1516 and 1 part 1503 Dark Oak. This will add a little more "brown" to the Rustic color.

      See this about the new deck as it cannot be stained right away: https://www.twpstainhelp.com/prepping-new-wood-for-twp-stains/


      FYI, We do not allow external links so we had to remove.

    I have 1000 square feet of T&G pine to apply to my porch ceiling that I purchased 15 years ago. I sanded it with 100grit to remove discoloration.

    Your natural and honeytone color samples are nearly identical. Is that because of the wood type used for the natural? Do you apply this product wet on wet? Should I apply this product to both sides of the wood to avoid "cupping" if moisture appears inside soffit ?

    We have a 12 year-old Mahogany deck. During the first years we had it, we would sand and seal with a clear Timber Oil finish that had a beautiful sheen. The deck looked like beautiful hardwood floors. We have always strived to retain the original color of the Mahogany vs. letting the wood go gray.

    Since VOC legislation, that kind of sealer is no longer available. So, we have tried virtually every kind of "clear" sealer on the market. Some of them left a yellow tint to the wood, which wasn't at all desirable. Some have left black gunk. Some had barely lasted half of the summer season. Last year was the worst so far after using Thompson's--black gunk and for the first time, didn't last and the deck is gray--the most gray that it has ever been.

    So, we are looking for our next product to try.

    4 questions:

    If we use the restore a deck kit--cleaner and brightener--will we have to sand the deck to get back to a Mahogany color or will the brightener restore the original color?

    We really don't want to change the color of the Mahogany. Do we need to use TWP 1500 Clear or Natural, or would Natural change the color?

    The deck is exposed to a lot of sun and weather. Will the TWP 1500 clear last the summer season?

    Will TWP 1500 leave a black gunky residue on the deck as it begins to break down?


    Thanks in advance for the response.

      The TWP Clear will not provide UV protection from graying. The Natural will as it is tinted/colored. You must have tint in your stain if you want UV protection from graying. The Natural will enhance/change the color of the wood.

          TWP Clear grays naturally in months but protects from water, etc for the year or longer. Clear stains or sealer will not give UV protection for a year. You must have a tint in the stain for UV protection

          The prep kit does restore the color but you will need the Stripper/Brightener Kit to remove the Thompsons.

          TWP does not leave "black" gunk on the deck but the Clear will gray naturally.

            Bridget Cunningham · 04/30/2018
            So, do I understand correctly that the Brightener neutralizes the Stripper?

            And do I understand from your response above that we should not need to sand the Mahogany to get the color back from gray to the original Mahogany color--the stripping and brightening should do it?

              The stripping and brightening will remove the Thompsons and restore the color. You should not have to sand.

              The brightener does neutralize the stripper.

    Received a sample of 1500 in gray last year. I thought it was cape cod, but in finding receipt it was driftwood. Is that an available option any longer? I see the cape cod gray but im in a non shippable state. Thanks

      Hello Mike, the TWP 1500 Series has never had a gray color nor has any of the Series had a "Driftwood Gray". I believe you may have gotten the sample confused with a different brand of stain?

      No, it is does not as TWP is a penetrating stain.

      All the TWP 1500 colors will preserve the cedar. Pick any color you like that will enhance the natural color.

    How many years do you suggest for reapplication on cedar siding?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 03/25/2018
      Depending on the UV exposure, the TWP 1500 should last 4-6 years and possibly longer for vertical cedar siding. Please post a picture when done. We love cedar sided homes!

      2 Days after prep for drying and 12-24 hours after applying before rain.

          Any pollen that lands on the stain when wet could possibly feed mildew growth down the road.

    I bought the Restore a Deck kit and 5 gallons of TWP 1530. I've got small windows of weather to work with, and we're approaching heavy pollen season. Once I've done the prep work, dry weather do I need to before staining? How much pollen accumulation is too much? Any tips on how to work around it? Or just need to wait till it's over?

    I am ordering 10 gallons semi transparent stain to use on a cedar sided barn. I would like to know which stain would have the most orange tint. I am leaning towards the 1502 stain Redwood all of the others seem too brown.

      Prep first with the Gemini Restore Kit. After staining, it should dry in a day but this varies on the weather.

    I have a new deck installed a year ago that is ready for stain. It is about 1000 sqft including steps, railing, accent beams, lattice, etc. Will 5 gallons of stain be enough?[/quote]
    No. See this for help on the amount:

    Per your help page and under [b]Staining New Wood and Decking for the First Time[/b], it advises to apply 1 coat for new wood. Is that no longer correct? "Even after the waiting period and the proper prepping, new smooth wood is still not as absorbent as it will be in a few years.[b]We strongly suggest only applying 1 coat of the TWP Stains the first time.[/b] Do not over apply as the TWP may not penetrate into the wood correctly..."

    Your deck is a year old so it is really not "new" anymore. Either apply two light coats or one good coat is fine. If you do one coat, you will need about 7 gallons.
