Best TWP Stain for Wood Docks

Wood docks take a lot of abuse. Most of them are in full sun and are in a constant high moisture atmosphere. Protecting a wood dock with a weatherproof stain is the best chance of an extended lifespan. The best TWP stain for a wood dock will help preserve the wood ensuring it lasts for many years. 

What is Coverage Rate for TWP 1500 Series and the TWP 100 Series

When calculating how much TWP stain you will need for a particular project, two main factors come into play; the square footage of the surface being stained and the coverage rate per gallon.

The manufacturer specifies coverage rates. However, this is only an estimate because there are other variables that can affect coverage. The type of wood being stained affects coverage greatly. Denser wood’s like hardwoods will not hold as much stain as less dense wood types. Age of the wood is also very important. More aged wood can be very porous and will take a lot more stain than smoother newer wood. 

What is the difference between TWP 1500 Clear and the 1530 Natural

The new TWP 1500 Series Stain is a low VOC compliant wood preservative with exceptional weather shielding properties. It is designed to absorb better, dry quicker, and outperform the older TWP 500 Series Stain.

TWP 1500 comes in 9 different semi-transparent colors and a clear. Understanding the differences in clear vs. natural colors will help you in making a decision when completing your next wood staining project.
