As a leader in the wood and deck staining industry, TWP (total wood preservative) has been in existence for over 20 years. TWP is an EPA registered wood preservative that offers excellent wood protection in a penetrating oil formula. It is not susceptible to peeling and flaking like film forming deck stains. It provides a beautiful long lasting finish that repeals water and preserves the wood’s natural beauty.

The best TWP deck stain can depend on the situation but for most exterior deck projects the 1500 series is best suited. Wood decks are exposed to a wide array of weather conditions. Hot sunrays, rain, snow, and ice can take its toll on a deck. Even pet and human foot traffic can wear a stain down in a season or two. A quality deck stain finish is a must to hold up to these conditions.

The TWP 1500 series deck stain is a low 250 VOC preservative with excellent penetrating pigments that blocks wood from fading, discoloring and graying due to harsh UV rays. Mold and mildew growth are prohibited due to a unique blend of selected mildewcides. The exclusive mildewcides are highly important in preventing wood rot and decay. TWP 1500 series deck stain can also be used on other exterior wood projects like wood siding, log homes, roof shakes and fencing.

Offered in 9 different colors, TWP 1500 deck stain is compliant in all 50 states and that alone makes it the most versatile and best TWP deck stain available. TWP is a trusted product with years of experience and reputation in every can. It will not only enhance your deck’s natural beauty but will also preserve and protect the wood for many years of enjoyment. What is the best TWP deck stain? Look no further than the newly formulated TWP 1500 Series for all your deck staining needs.

Hello, prep with the Gemini Restore Kit and stain with TWP 100 or 1500 Series depending on your state's VOC laws.

DECKS CURRENTLY ARE COVERED WITH DEFY EPOXY STAIN
WHAT STAIN CAN I APPLY OVER THIS?

You cannot apply TWP over the Defy. Best to remove all previous coatings first.

I sanded my old pressure treated wood deck down to bare wood 2 years ago and applied TWP 100 (Redwood 102) color. Project went well. Stain is still in good shape but starting to fade just a bit now. Question is: If this time I want to use TWP1500 (1502 Redwood) instead of of TWP100 Redwood, can I just use a cleaner and a brightener ? or do I have to use stripper to get absolutely all of that initial TWP100 stain off of the wood ?

You can clean and brighten for the prep for this.

I have a cedar log home with a wrap around cedar porch. The home has had at least 2-3 cleanings and painting with TWP Series 100 Cedartone. The Series 1500 Cedartone has a higher percentage of solids which I presume is the result of the lower VOCs and provides more protection per coat. 1) More protection for similar application work? 2) Can I just switch to the 1500 equivalent during my next reseal cycle or is there a specific "switch prep" I need to do?

1. Slightly better UV protection but still lasts the same.
2. If you use the Gemini Restore Kit as prep you should be able to switch.
