    The 1500 has a higher solid content. The 100 dries a little faster. Otherwise they look similar and perform about the same.

    Hi,

    What is the difference between the twp100 and twp1500 besides the VOC compliant in the twp1500.

    Thanks.

    tavery, you can order the Restore A Deck Stripper and the Restore A Deck Brightener separately. You do not need the cleaner if using the stripper.

    JoeC, the 200 series is for shakes and shingles. It can be applied to a deck but it will take days or even weeks to fully cure. Please read this about new decking:

    working on 6 year old PTpine, it has something transparent on it, problably a water shield product of some sort. hard to get off.
    Planning to sand with 60 grit on random orbital.
    then stipping
    then brightening
    then staining with TWP 100
    problem is I don't see needing the cleaner in the 'kit'
    I planned on the stripper just in case I missed some sealer with the sanding( large deck) lots of spindles.
    Then brightener. Have powerwashed it last fall not gottenaround to getting this done till now so wood is pretty dry.

    My contractor wants to use TWP200 series for my new KDAT PT Pine deck but all my reasearch says TWP 100 is for decks and 200 is for shingles. Should I force him to use TWP 116 vs TWP 206 or 207 for a pine kild dried pressure treated deck?

    John, you cannot use the 100 Series in Maine but you can use the 1500 Series and would work great for your log home. Any high quality caulk should be fine.

    I have a new ceder log home in Maine with some graying, mildew spots on logs. The logs have never been treated. Is Twp 100 a good choice for log walls. What caulking would be compatible. We will be caulking a matching color between all logs. Thanks, John

    Only 1 Kit and 5 gallons for 2,450 square feet of fence surface? I was thinking I'd need 3 Kits and 15-20 gallons.

    Wood is approximately 13 years old, cedar shake siding and cedar lap siding. The wood is in fairly good condition. This wood was stained with TWP in 2001, prior to installation. This is cedar shingle and lap siding.

    What's a good preparation procedure for re-coating with TWP?

    Anne, best to prep the wood that you want to stain with the Gemini Restore Kit then apply the TWP 100 Series 2 coats wet on wet.

    Mitch, I would not do anything now but rather do a light maintenance coat late Fall or early Spring to just the horizontals.

    I used the 1500 Natural
    Deck is a year old, pressure treated, excellent to good condition, gets a lot of sun from 11am to 8pm (e.s.t) in the summer)I scrubbed it with a bleach and water solution, power washed it, waited a little more than 48 hours to dry
    I used a 3/8 nap roller, there are some areas that came out lighter than other areas, some little spots that actually look like a shine to them, but, the shine spots I can live with, what I am wondering is it possible to do a second light coat over the areas that are lighter, or is a second coat only to be done wet over wet and not wet over dry cause it might look even more uneven?
    As for the look of the product I thought Natural meant it was going to be,well clear,but,nope it has a light Cherry/Mahogany tone to it,not a complaint I think it is gorgeous the wood deck up against my white vinyl fencing
    I still have to do the lower level of the "deck" area suggestions welconed
