TWP Wood Deck Stain Reviews
In reviewing some of the top stains on the market for 2023 we could not overlook TWP stain. It is a registered EPA wood preservative that offers excellent protection from UV graying, wood decay, and water infiltration. TWP uses select mildewcides that naturally resist fungal growth to help eliminate wood rot. The semi-transparent oil-based formula penetrates deeply into wood pores without extreme surface film accumulation. It emphasizes and enhances existing wood grain beauty with color depth and warmth.
Our TWP Stain review 2023 shows that this stain goes beyond the TWP claims of being the number one wood preservative. Top contractors and professionals prefer wood stains that penetrate into the wood surface and can be easily maintained and reapplied without sanding. This makes wood maintenance easier, cheaper, more effective, and less frequent. Most TWP stained surfaces will last 2-3 years before a recoat is needed. The excellent UV-absorbing pigments eliminate wood discoloring and graying, which is a common problem with exterior wood surfaces.
In recent tests, TWP Stain Reviews noted that after 2 years the stain did not darken like many other brands of oil-based stains typically do. In addition to excellent color retention, TWP Stain applies easily enough that your typical do-it-yourselfer can get professional-like results. We also found in most cases TWP Stain is not affected by rain after an hour or two of stain absorption. We noticed that the natural and synthetic oils in TWP showed very little fungal growth at the 2-year mark as well as no peeling, flaking, or chipping.
Another plus to the TWP Stain review 2023 was the fact that as well as this stain performs it still remains a low VOC oil-based formula and is compliant in all 50 states. TWP Stain scored well in all tests in overall protection, longevity, compliance, and final finish results.
