VOC (Volatile organic compounds) regulations are changing rapidly across the USA and Canada. Not all of the stains that we sell are compliant for all areas. As it stands 16 US states and Canada have adopted the more stringent 250 regulation:

TWP 1500 Series is compliant for all 50 States but cannot be shipped or used in Canada.

TWP 200 Series is compliant for all 50 States and Canada.

    Can you ship to area code 23009 in Virginia? As I read the laws, we are outside the emission control areas of Northern Va, Fredericksburg, and Richmond.

    Previously stained deck (old PTP. Northern VT, south facing) with TWP 100. Any prep concerns before I use 1500 this time? I guess the VOC laws have changed since 2018? Thanks!

    Can a sample of Rustic be added to black walnut, both 1500 series, to achieve a slightly redder tint? I'm trying to match a pergola we purchased. Basically, can i mix these colors myself?

    I stained my deck a few years ago with TWP 100, and it's time to re-stain this spring. Do I need to strip/sand the previous TWP 100 prior to re-staining with a new batch of TWP 100?

      No, you would need the TWP 1500 for Ohio.

    What is your suggestion for staining/sealing 10 year old treated wood (pine?) on a dock over salt water in South Carolina. Plan to lightly pressure wash first.

    We are in Colorado. House and decks stained with Pecan/TWP 100. High sun areas do not bead water - does that indicate it is time to restrain? It has been 4 years. Which product do you recommend since 100 is not an option?

      Use the TWP 1500. Decks typically need to be redone every 2-3 years. House will last 4-7. Proabbly time to redo the deck.

    My question is can I stain Ceder wood with TWP 1502 Redwood stain tone ? Or should just keep it Cedertone?

    I am new to staining and have been doing lot of research and found TWP could be the best to restore the used Ceder swing set I just bought.

    Appreciate any responses

    What is best treatment for rough cut cypress in Columbia SC for a pergola project? A lot of sun and humidity. This is regular rough cut cypress, not old growth or so called sinker. Intend to darken slightly with a cedar color.

    Have always used TWP products on our double decker Brazilian hardwood deck with great results. Our go to guy left the area so two years ago I did it myself using Gemini cleaner/brightener and Honeytone stain. Looked great. This year, my husband and I cleaned the deck but after that cleaning/brightening we had rain almost every two days for two weeks. So we couldn't stain under those rainy conditions. Last week we re-used the Gemini since we didn't want to stain a deck that was not totally clean. Now we are stuck with the same problem. We can't get 4 days without rain (two days before and two days after staining). Is there a solution? I keep looking at the forecast and don't see 4 days of sun in the next week. That means we will have to clean again?!!!! Can we let it go and try again in the spring? We are in Maryland coastal area.

      You do not need two days after. 12-24 hours would work. You can leave it as is if needed and then prep and stain in Spring.

    I'm getting ready to restain my home which is sided with T-111. All prior coatings have been with Olympic Semi-Transparent stain. Will 1500 work ok for this application and can you tell me what impact using 1500 rather than 100 (since I'm in Pennsylvania) has on protection? Thank you.

      TWP Stains · 10/09/2020
      You cannot apply the TWP over the Olympic. You will need to remove that completely first. Once removed, the TWP 1500 would be the correct choice.

      Sand it off first and then use the Gemini Restore Kit after. Use the TWP 1500 Series.

    I live in Nebraska. Have one year old cedar floor boards and new pine spindles. What would be a good stain to use to help match those woods. I know it won't be perfect, but looking to see if you have suggestions on something close.

      Prep with the Gemini Restore Kit and stain with any color that you like in the 100 Series.
