TWP 200 Series colorsTWP 200 Series is now available to be shipped to Canada!

The TWP 200 Series was designed for shakes and shingles but can be used for all exterior wood surfaces such as decking, fencing, log homes, cedar framed homes, etc.

TWP 200 Series is a semi-transparent oil based penetrating finish designed to extend the life of exterior wood such as decking, cedar shake siding, and shingles. Containing a paraffin oil, TWP 200 series penetrates wood extremely well. The Paraffin oil is a "non-drying" oil that enhances the wood cells structural stability. This greatly improves the woods life and appearance.

TWP 200 Series primary function is to enhance the structural integrity and appearance of aged roofing. The finish composition will minimize grain cracking, cupping, surface erosion, water absorption and surface attack from mildew and algae.  Although the system is highly penetrative, the residual surface film is highly resistant to destructive organisms.  The penetrative portion of the product absorbs into aged and porous wood, adding bulk to aged and brittle wood fiber.  This restores lubricity and flexibility to brittle shingles.  At 94%+ solids, these products comply with all current federal and state VOC (volatile organic compounds) regulations.

TWP 200 SERIES will not crack, peel or blister making maintenance an easy task to perform for extended wood protection.

I just replaced deck with knotty pine pressure on floor and Cedar for handrails. Have used twp 200 California Cedar before. Floor faded in 18 months. Posts still looked good. What TWP product is right for me? Thanks.

See this about new wood:

Use the 100 or 200 Series.

In the future, if it is determined that removal is required due to age and wear, will the product sand off or will chemical stripping be required?

The 200 is easily removed with the Restore A Deck Stripper Kit. Much easier than sanding:

We do not have gallery of projects being that the main reason, the colors are semi-transparen t and will look different on different species of wood and age of wood. See this for a breakdown in the differences:

I want to restore 22-year-old cedar-shingle siding. I will clean and brighten, and then I want to use TWP 200 series. Your product data sheet says not to apply below 50 degrees, and it cautions to "allow to dry for a minimum of 48 hours." Does this mean that temperatures must stay above 50 for the entire dry-time?

It can drop below 50 while curing but it cannot drop below freezing. It will also take a little longer to cure in colder temps which should not be an issue for vertical shingles.

TWP cannot be applied over a solid stain so make sure that you remove all. Once fully removed, look at the 100 Series.

I ma not sure what you mean? Linear feet depends on your total fence length. Multipy that by the height and x2 if doing both sides to get the total sq. footage. Coverage for a 5 gallon pail and 2 coats applied wet on wet is about 500-600 sq. feet.

Question on calculating square footage needed for each product. I have doubled due to staining the bottom as well as all vertical members. Do you factor in the bottom sq. ft. in calc for the Gemini Restore A Deck. Is that a correct assumption on my part? Also, that bottom side will not have the moisture reduction as the top half (maybe???)so what best practices need to be followed when working below.

It will be installed with horizontal nailers about every 2 feet. The cedar is a full 1 inch thick and random widths of 6 to 8 inches wide. Also, there is some with dark red to purple in color due to not being in the sun. I assume that will fade out in a short ammount of time? Kinda kicking around the idea of the Gray color also. Do you have or know of where I could see some colors on some actual houses? Thanks for your time, as I am sure Ill have a couple more Questions.

Clear will gray naturally in months. Tinted will last years. Not need to coat the backside. Not sure about the fading of the red/purple as that really depends on the wood.

200 Series is for cedar shake siding and roofs. You would want the 100 Series. None of the TWP products will give a solid or painted look. The lightest tint/color in the 100 series is the 115 Honeytone.

I stained my cedar shingle home and deck with TWP501C natural cedar. What other TWP stains will match this stain color in the 100, 200, and 1530 series? Also is it true that a darker stain holds up better in longevity? What would be a little darker but similar to the TWP501C natural cedar stain in all series? Is Twp501C discontinued? Thank you

EdB, 100 Series. make sure to let the new wood season for 4+ months, than clean and brighten for the prep.

Atlanta Deck Protection
I live in Atlanta. Part of my deck was rebuilt due to storm damage. The rails are new treated pine (some kiln dried, and others treated but not dried). The floor is about 10 year old treated pine, which has weathered over time.
I want to treat the deck and porch, and would like the new and old wood to match as much as reasonable. I do not want a solid color coating. What product and possible colors do you recommend? 100? 200? 1500?

RE: TWP 200 Series 5 Gallon
weaver4, as long as you prep correctly it will be okay with either series.

Mr
Assuming we can find a darker color we like is it OK to use the 100 series over the top of the 200 series for our deck? How about the 1500 series? Or should we stay with the 200 series? The 200 series was put on a few years ago.

RE: TWP 200 Series 5 Gallon
The 201 Cedartone does not match the 101 or the 1501. Closest would be the 1501.

Mr.
A few years ago I used Shake and Shingle Cedartone 201 to stain my deck. I need to restain my deck again.

What types of TWP can I use? Can I use a 100 or 1500? I want to use roughly the same color.

My deck was stained with Cabot semi solid stain 3 years ago. Can I put TWP over it?

No you cannot use TWP on top of the Cabot. You would need to remove the Cabot first.

RE: TWP 200 Series 5 Gallon
Lukester, you can use the 200 for the railings as well. Cedar Gold would be the lightest.
Quote
RE: TWP 200 Series 5 Gallon
considering using the 200 on vertical cedar rough sawn siding but would this be appropriate for the deck railings? which of the four available colors is the most natural or lightest ? is there a comparible color in the 100 or 1500 lines, as I would want the siding to match the railing.

Steven C, You would want the 1500 for a log cabin. The 200 Series is a high solids product for roof shingles ans shake siding.

RE: TWP 200 Series 5 Gallon
Would this product be better for a 40 year old pine log cabin than the 1500?

what does the 94% solids mean?

All four of the colors appear the same on the color chart.

re; which stain to reseal old pine deck in Atlanta
You could use either 100 or 1500. The 100 is used more so in GA. The 200 is for shakes and shingles.

which stain to reseal old pine deck in Atlanta
Why would TWP 100 and not TWP 1500? Any reason to avoid TWP 200 (contractors want to use the 200 series)? Do both come in a Redwood color?

re: Which stain to reseal old pine deck in Atlanta
TWP 100 Series would be best for this. Make sure the wood id prepped properly by removing any previous coatings.

Which stain to reseal old pine deck in Atlanta
I need to have my pine wood deck resealed (needed to for a few years). It is going to be stripped and sanded. I live in Atlanta and the deck gets decent sun exposure. The previous semi-transparen t stain appeared to be a redwood color. What is the appropriate TWP stain that should be used - TWP 200? I think that the prior stain must have been water-based because I never had an algae or mold issue. Is this going to be a problem w/oil-based stain? Is there anything in the re-sealing prep that I should make sure the deck company does to prevent/reduce mold & algae growth?

It would be better to use the 1500 or 100 series since they actually cure/dry.

I have a deck finished with the #207 butternut and would like to finish a porch swing in the same color. My concern is possible staining clothes as the info mentions it is made with \"non drying\" oils. Is this product suitable for a porch swing or should I use something else?

re: Moldy Deck boards in Georgia- New deck and used TWP 200
I would use 1 part bleach to 5 parts water. Apply to deck and rinse after 5-10 minutes. If it is mold it will go away. If it does not then it could be rust specks. These look like black dots as well. You would need a wood brightener to fix this.

Moldy Deck boards in Georgia- New deck and used TWP 200
So, what procedure would you suggest? Spray watered down solution of bleach, then leave it on or wash it off? How long should i leave it on? I read online that steam would be great to kill the spores also, as 140 kills all mold, would you suggest that?
Quote
e: Moldy Deck boards in Georgia- New deck and used TWP 200
Most likely the mold was there in the wood prior. I would try a water downed bleach solution to kill the mold spores.

Used TWP 200 on my new deck boards in Georgia. Decking was pressure treated boards from Home Depot. USed TWP 200 since that what was recommended by a Decking company. Well two weeks after the application I am seeing dark spots on the boards, looking like mold. Now what do I do??:\'(

1500 vs 200
We are preparing to build a new deck and screened porch using DuraPine by Cox Wood -a yellow pine wood that is pressure treated with CA and the decking will be DuraPine Classic which is treated with the CA and then kiln dried. We live in Atlanta, Ga and would like to know whether to use the 1500 series or 200 series.

re: 1500 v s 200
1500 Series would be ideal for your scenario. Offers excellent UV protection and does not darken in color like other stains. It will fade lightly through the years.
Quote
1500 v s 200
Which is better? Live in high desert southwest, dryness and UV is extreme; moisture/mold/d amp rot is not a problem. Will be removing failed Penofin and re-staining log home. Outbuildings are wood slab siding. The home and outbuildings are 6 years old but the weathering is pretty significant. BTW, are you aware of any problem with TWP finishes turning black over time-- that\'s what happened with the Penofin?
