Natural Stain on Cedar Siding

TWP cedar tone is a very natural looking sealer that absorbs into the wood rather than forming a layer on top of the wood, giving it a natural look and feel.

Here you can see that the upper peak has not been sealed yet giving a good look at before and after the staining process. When staining cedar siding it is important to saturate the wood and back brush the final coat if spraying.

On this project the customer wanted the natural look but didn't want the red/orange that is common in TWP 101, adding a pinch of dark oak mellows it out rather well, but they do make a Pecan now that has the same effect.

This log home still has some CWF as at the time of doing this home there weren't any good stripper for CWF, but with a good wood brightener and some TLC it looks good as new.

TWP 201 is a much thicker and more rich oil than that of their deck stains, and will take several weeks to fully incorporate into the wood, and months to lighten up if not getting full sun. It is rumored to last 7-10 years, which is appealing to someone that doesn't do a lot of leaning on thier home.

Deck Stain

TWP 101 Cedar Tone on Deck
TWP Cedar Tone is one of the most popular deck stains on the market due to it's ability to not only look nice but is also a wood preservative.

I don't have any faith in a product that says it will seal your wood for 20+ years, but this is the effect I got after putting cedar tone on the wood. Notice the darker richer color. I never made it back to see how it did over time, so I have no other information on the stability of the seal.
TWP 101 Cedar Tone on Rails
All the craze these days, metal spindles and support toppers. While I do recommend the support toppers for their ability to protect the exposed grain, I can go either way with the metal spindles. The ones that you don't have to drill into the support beams seem to hold up better and don't collect water.
