TWP 100 Series Picture Album
Hearing from consumers who have used the TWP 100 Series wood stain, their decks have held up to the test of time and weather after this harsh winter. TWP is one of our top go-to stains as deck restoration contractors and we have been using it for 20+ years.
Overall Score TWP 100 Series Stain at 2 Year Period: 8.5
– TWP is one of our most commonly used stains. We have applied the TWP 100 Series to many 1000’s of decks and rarely have an issue. Easy to apply and easy to reapply when the time comes. There are a few other stains that are as good, but as of yet, no other product has been better.

Live in SW Colorado. Redwood deck has been sanded. Penofin was used in the past but it darkens and gray in some areas and color was uneven after a few years – sort of like pealing in some of your pictures.
What would you recommend The TWP 1500 series oil based semi-transparent ? Or one that has the Oxide to protect from UV damage.
Strip and brigheten to rmeove the Penofin. TWP stains are excellent and would work well. All TWP tinted semi-transparent colors have UV protection.

I have not seen any mention of Outlast Q8 log oil. Have you done any research or testing with this product?
We have not. Consumers have mentioned it a few times. Most were looking to remove it and use a better stain.
