TWP 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.

  • Compliant in all States

Due to different substrates, wood density, sanding, wiping and application methods, and atmospheric conditions, ALWAYS check actual stain color for accuracy before finish work process begins. We are not responsible for color variances following application of the product.

    Hi - I previously did my deck with the 100 series Pecan - which colour best matches this on the 200 series?
    My understanding is that I use the restore a deck stipper/brightner kit and then I can put the 200 series over the 100 series WP - is that correct?
    Finally - on a front step it wears quickly - is there a better more resilient stain that can be used there?
    I am in Canada

      Butternut Brown is the closest but a little darker. Strip and Brighten for prep.

    I'm going to stain my new cedar fence. I would like more brown color to show instead of the reddish orange colors. Which 100 or 200 series will get me more of the brown color to come through?

    I have a Cape Cod house that has new white cedar class A shakes (installed spring 2019)on three sides, the east, west, and south sides. We are in the late summer of 2020 now.
    How long should I wait to stain them with TWP 200 series stains?

    Let me try that again! California Cedar for shakes, matching California Redwood decking... sorry.

    Matt G · 08/04/2020
    the images for California Cedar and Californa Gold above love very similar... can you describe the difference or send some photos as applied? We are using California Redwood on our decks...

    We love the natural-looking color of the cedar generally... so trying to stay in that general range and want to avoid "orange" looking shingles over time.

      California Redwood is a little redder than the Cedar Gold.

        Matt G · 08/05/2020
        what about the difference between Cedar Gold and California Gold in TWP 200 for cedar shingle siding? What would match best generally with California Redwood decking that is right under it?
        • We will reply to your comment shortly
          TWP Stains · 08/05/2020
          California Redwood would give a slightly redder tint to blend better with Redwood decking.

            Matt G · 08/05/2020
            You mean California Gold TWP 200 for the siding would be similar in color to the California Redwood decking? Correct?

              Closer but not the same. You cannot make different wood types look the same when stained.

        Are there any better photos that I could see a larger sample side by side? the photos above look basically identical.

        Which would match better with California Redwood?
        • We will reply to your comment shortly
          TWP Stains · 08/04/2020
          Sorry but we do not have larger photos and colors will always vary anyhow based on the wood type and age of the wood. You can test samples here: https://www.twpstain.com/stain-samples

          Note: It takes the 200 Series 1-2 weeks to cure to final color after applying.

    I’m wondering how I should clean the shoe marks from my deck? The stain is only a couple months old and the rubber soles seems to discolour the surface a lot. My father’s rubber cane tip made a huge mess of it.
    When I tried to clean with soap and water it really lightened the pigment of the deck stain in an unacceptable way.
    What’s the suggested way to clean the marks from the deck surface?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 07/31/2020
      Sorry, but there is not a way to just remove the rubber sole marks and not remove some of the stain at the same time.
      • We will reply to your comment shortly
        Robin · 07/31/2020
        So you mean that a premium deck stain picks up rubber from regular shoes and leaves black marks and there’s no way to clean it without having to re-stain the whole board?
        • We will reply to your comment shortly
          TWP Stains · 08/01/2020
          It is not the stain's fault that the rubber is rubbing off. This would happen if the wood was unstained as well.

    A local roof guy told me the TWP210 will protect my roof for up to 5 years while the TWP200 will only last 1/2 as long. Any comment on this? Does the additional stain help preserve the covered cedar shingles longer?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 07/31/2020
      The tinted colors will last twice as long as the Clear.

    My questions are for using TWP 200 Series;

    After cleaning my logs I know they will be dry and porous, do I need to use an application prior to staining to prevent blotching? Also,

    I'll only be able to do a portion of the home but know I need 2- 5 gal pails, should they be bought at one time to maintain color/production run or doesn't it matter.

    Thank you,
    Joe

      No, do not apply anything before staining. By at the same time.

      For a total of 1000 sq feet, you would need about 7-10 gallons.

    I applied TWP 203 to my back deck over 4 weeks ago. My parents came to visit and the rubber foot of my father's cane marked all over the surface of the deck. I took some soap and water to it, which partially removed the black marks but also lightened a patch of my stain! Now I'm left with a mess on my nice newly stained deck. What's the best way to proceed to fix this? More soap and water and scrub to remove the black marks, then a light reapplication of stain over the top? I really hope I don't need to sand the single board down and re-do the whole thing. Help!

      Do a light pressure wash with a cleaner to all wood and then a very light coat.

        Robin · 07/14/2020
        You’re not suggesting that I pressure wash the whole board back to bare wood are you? Just the problem area?
        • We will reply to your comment shortly
          TWP Stains · 07/14/2020
          The whole board otherwise it will not blend when you recoat.

    I received 2 samples 201 and 205. They are showing up much darker than what is portrayed in the pictures. Is even darker than the 207 Butternut Brown. I'm wondering what would cause this.
    Shingles have just been pressure washed and cleaned. *** I will post pictures tomorrow.

      The 200 Series takes about 1-2 weeks until full cure and final color.
      • We will reply to your comment shortly
        Jimmy · 07/08/2020
        I put the samples on a number of different types of wood to get an idea of what to expect. Understandably, the colors will vary depending on the wood. However, I did not expect it to be so dark when applied to the shingles as it doesn't reflect the color swatches at all. What should be my next steps?
        • We will reply to your comment shortly
          TWP Stains · 07/08/2020
          As we mentioned 200 Series takes about 1-2 weeks until full cure and final color. Shingles are also much more absorbent in color.

            Jimmy · 07/08/2020
            Does that mean it will lighten a bit to be more like the top samples? Or should I order something lighter like TWP203?
            • We will reply to your comment shortly
              TWP Stains · 07/08/2020
              I will lighten up on your wood but colors will always vary based on wood type, age, and, the porosity of the wood.

                  Mineral spirits is correct for cleanup.

    I'm having all of my deck and rail wood replaced, but keeping the old lattice skirt. A stain was put on the lattice around 11-12 year ago. Not sure if it was oil or water. Does the lattice need be stripped before staining since it was so long ago? I can still see some stain on it.

    I applied my TWP 203 on Sunday (3 days ago). It was on a PT deck that had weathered for 2 years, then prepped with Restore-A-Deck Cleaner & Brightener. There are a few individual boards that have a slightly deeper color and a very slight sheen when you look across them. When you touch them there's a very slight amount of residue on the surface. Should I wait another day or two, or should I wipe down the residue? There's a different feeling between the boards that are clearly "dried" and those that have a slightly moist feeling yet. Give it more time? There is sun in the forecast for the next 2 days, then a stretch of rain.

      Wipe it down now. Make sure to saturate all oily rags in water and lay flat to dry outside.

        What can I do to get rid of the “film” that still remains on the wood after I’ve wiped it down? I applied a thin coat, let it dry/cure thoroughly. Wiped it down after drying like you suggested (twice, actually) and bare/sock feet still transfer oil to my tile floor inside. What’s the best way to fix this?

    I noticed when placing my order that the stain colour changed.

    I ordered the TWP 201 cedar tone not the 203 cedar tone gold
    can you please change this on my order # JGBP088082

    also I had a different shipping address and it reverted to my home address.
