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.

    is it possible to order larger containers like a 50 gallon drums ? we install 3,000 lf fencing projects , it would be easier to have large drums to spray from.

    Have a Western Red Cedar rough sawn pergola already 18 months old unfinished. Probably waited too long but I am looking for the ultimate seal/preservation for the Pacific Northwest climate, Canada so I am limited to TWP200. I see comments it is formulated for shakes and shingles. Is this suitable for dimensional lumber?

    What is the lightest colour pigment that is not TWP200 clear? Is TWP 201 lighter than TWP203?

      TWP Stains · 05/03/2022
      Yes, the TWP 200 Series will work very well for this. 203 Cedar Gold is the lightest color.

    We have just reshingled our Massachusetts home with  western red cedar shingles that have been preprimed by the manufacturer (Teal Cedar) with a gray oil based primer.  We really like resulting the mottled look, and are looking for an oil based stain, perhaps with a little gray tint, to protect the shingles, particularly where the carpenters had to shave the ends or sides of a shingle to make it fit.  Is TWP200 Clear or perhaps TWP210 Slate Gray a good choice?  Can the TWP200 Clear be used to dilute the colorant in the TWP210 Slate Gray if the latter has too much stain for our taste, or are the formulations not compatible?

      You cannot apply the TWP over a primer so it would not work for you here.

    We put 206 Russett on our front porch in 2016. Now almost 6 years later we want to restain for longevity, but don't want the porch color to get darker. Would you recommend using the Gemini Kit for cleaning and then using a 100 Clear stain or doing the Gemini Kit and using TWP Russett 206 again? Thanks!

      You cannot add Clear over a stain color. Use the same color as prior after the prep.

    For a deck walking surface is it advisable to thin TWP 200 with 25% mineral spirits? Does this affect drying time or duration of protection?

    Hi, I’m just finishing installing ~1200 ft sq of green rough cut cedar sidewall shingles in Oregon (although some walls have been done for 3+ months) where the high VOC TWP101 is allowed.  I’m planning to use the Gemini restore kit and then I was planning to use TWP101 Cedartone. I’m just learning about TWP201 Cedartone. Would you recommend one over the other? Why?Also, a neighbor applied TWP101 and it looked really nice, if you recommend TWP201, is the color the same as 101?Thank you in advance,Joe

      The 200 Series is made for shakes and shingles. You can use either though. The colors are not the same between Series.

        Joe · 10/06/2021
        Thanks for the response.  What is the advantage of the 200 series for sidewall shingles over the 101, and how are the colors different? Darker, lighter?How long has the 200 series been around, I’m only family with the 100 series. Thanks again, Joe. 
        I might have to see if I can get a sample of the 201.

          Colors will vary based on series and the age of the wood and type of wood so no way to say for certain what the difference would be.
          The 200 has conditioning oils for the shakes and shingles that keeps them from drying out internally. It has been around as long as the 100 Series.

    I just purchased the TWP 200 and I will be applying it to a cedar fence.  I was planning on applying 2 coats but it seems that this is a 1 coat system.  Would it be bad to apply 2 coats for better protection?  Also, what is the best way to apply if I don't have a garden sprayer?  Paint roller??

    I was told by my cedar shake manufacture to find a product that is deep penetrating and non-film forming. Would I be getting this in a 200 series?

    I am ready for a maintenance coat on my 210 slate Gray pressure treated pine deck.  The original coat was done about 3+ years ago.  I cleaned with just plain soap and water and let dry for many days.  I did a test board and the resulting coat is much more Gray than original coat…I think because the pressue treated pine had natural tannins perhaps?  Do I need to tint the new 210 product to achieve the brown/Gray look I want?  And with what?  Thank you

      I am sorry but it is not possible to tint the 200 Series. In addition, make sure to prep with the Gemini Restore Kit, not just plain soap and water.

        TWP Stains · 08/09/2021
        Back to the tinting. While you cannot add a tint to it, you can mix in another color of the 200 Series into it. Possibly adding a gallon or two of the Butternut Btown into your Slate Gray would give the desired look.

    I want to use TWP clear, on 6 year old cedar shake siding on the New England shoreline starting to darken, crack and cup. I prefer the darkening but want to preserve my siding. Will this clear coat darken my siding more or change the color of my shakes. I prefer to leave it as is. What prep is need if any? Can I apply it to the siding without any prep? 
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 07/23/2021
      The Clear will not alter the appearance much or at all. You do have to prep first.

    I have 6 year old cedar shake siding  at the shore starting to darken, crack and cup. Can I apply TWP 200 on the shakes as they are? What prep is needed. I prefer to have the darkening remain.

    If I have enough stain left over after giving 2 coats, is it possible/a good idea to give it a third coat

      No, more is not better. Leads to issues with drying, curing and penetration.

    I sanded all my deck and was planning on putting twp 201 cedar tone stain. Will I need a brightner? Also, there are some places where I would need wood filler. Is it recommended to use a wood filler with this stain and if yes what would you recommend. My deck is 16’x26’…40’ of railing but no spindles as they will be a different colour and 5 steps at 6’. How much of the twp 201cedartone stain will I need? The deck is an older deck and would need two coats.Thanks!

      Clean and brighten the wood after sanding is best. Never use a wood filler with the TWP stains. It will not blend. We would need a total sq footage added up of all wood for help with the amount needed.

    Good day. I Recently used the TWP 200 series cedar tone (201) for a project in Canada.  There was a semi solid stain on the deck and railings previously.  This previous coating proved VERY DIFFICULT to remove.  We used the restore a deck stripper and another more concentrated stripper.  Neither did anything in the way of 'lifting' the old coating.  We tried power washing with a 3500 psi commercial power washer that sort of worked but also etched and splintered the wood so we quickly abandoned it.  After it dried, we palm sanded using 40 grit coarse paper.  This got 60-70 percent of the coating off completely but there was still some color left behind.  I sampled the color over the wood at this point on several different areas and the customer accepted the look which was quite good.  We then brightened the wood with the restore a deck product.  After 2 full days of drying, the stain was applied by sprayer followed immediately by a pass with lambs wool applicator and finally after a few minutes, it was wiped into the wood.  Overall the wood looks restored and the material soaked in quite well in general with the exception of a few shiny areas that seemed to dry down as time passed (it has only been a couple of days but it looks pretty even).  There is no doubt that the wood was porous enough for the product to soak in especially on the floor boards. My question is- will the product perform well over the next couple of years despite the fact that there was some residue stain on the wood?  Also, how do I go about doing maintenance coats in the future with this product?

      It should be fine as long as the TWP soaked into the wood grain. Redo every 2-3 years is normal. Post some pictures!
