The Best TWP Stain for Log Homes 2023 –


With log homes, weather protection can go a long way in preserving the appearance and integrity of the logs. Shielding a log home’s exterior from damaging UV rays and water absorption is the key to a long-standing solid structure. The right weather-protective finish will also enhance the natural beauty of the logs giving your log home the rustic look it deserves.

The best TWP Stain for log homes is the new 1500 Series Wood Stain. The 1500 Series is designed to absorb better, dry quicker, and outperform the preceding TWP 500 Series formula. With a low VOC level, the 1500 Series Stain is available in all 50 states and is an EPA registered wood preservative.

The excellent water-resistant properties of the 1500 Series prevents log cracking, splitting, and premature discoloring. With a 60% – 70% solid content blend, it dives into the wood pores to shed water and block out harmful UV damage. It rejuvenates the wood by replacing its diminishing natural oils and enhances the log home’s appearance.

TWP 1500 Wood Preservative also contains its own mildewcides to prevent fungi, mold, and mildew growth that may lead to wood rot and premature stain failure. Mold and mildew growth is a leading cause of structural damage.

Available in 9 different semi-transparent colors, TWP 1500 Series will give your log home a brilliant finish that will last for several years. The easy to apply and maintain formula will help keep maintenance costs down while keeping your log home looking good year-round. The 1500 Series Wood Stain truly is the best TWP stain for log homes hands down.

I am working on a 20 year old pine log home in central Wisconsin that has previously been treated with TWP 101. Your site recommends 1500 for log homes. I want the best preservative but also want the application to be realistically achievable this year still. Do you recommend chinking before or after staining? Should I move forward with 101 or 1500? Any special cleaning/prep? Thank you!

We will be having to restain a log cabin that is 15+ years old and if we use the TWP 1500 will I need to use my log builder sealant first since sealants don’t adhere to oil based products.

I have a 5yr old log home that was sealed with TWP 101 Natural. All logs are covered by a porch surrounding the home. The logs have been washed annually w log wash, and the stain is still in good shape. There is no grating, but I’m planning to restrain pretty soon. How do I prepare the logs for the new stain? Thank you.
