    Jeff patti:
    Many questions to use 100 or 1500. No explanation why they should use one or the other in all the comments on the site. I have a cedar fence in Austin TX. and read that the 1500 is better. Why shouldn't I use it verses the 100? Please advise. Thanks

    Both work very similar but the 100 Series is not compliant in certain states. The 1500 Series does have a little higher solid content and that can translate into slightly better UV protection on a vertical surface such as your fence. Does not mean it will last longer but can hold color a little longer. The 100 Series advantage is that is dries quicker and is able to penetrate deeper.

    I had a pressure treated deck built on a lakehouse in Michigan. It's about 1200 square feet and faces south. Full sun all day. The wood is 10 months old and we need to treat it. Would you recommend 100 or 1500. Thank you so much.

    Use the 100 Series for this deck in MI that is 10 months old. Prep first with the Gemini Restore Kit.

    I am wanting to stain my fence in San Antonio, Texas. What series would be best and how much would I need for 2004 sq.ft?

    You can use the 100 Series. For two coats applied wet on wet you will need roughly 15-20 gallons.

    Hi,

    I am building a wood home using pressure treated SYP in the Caribbean. What would be a better product to use 100 or 1500? I am looking for longevity, and ease of application.

    Thanks!

    Either would be fine.

    What kind would you recommend for a new Cedar deck; part of it is covered; part is exposed to direct sun that can get hot for a few months; and part is shaded....in North Idaho?

    thank you so much! Tina H.

    Tina, see this about new wood:
    http://www.twpstainhelp.com/prepping-new-wood-for-twp-stains/

    Use the TWP 100 Series after the proper wait and prep.

    255 feet x 4 feet = 1,020 sq ft[/quote]
    For both sides then it is 2040 sq. feet. You will need about 15-20 gallons for the two coats. Use the 1500 series for Northern VA.[/quote]
    What is the best price available for that quantity purchased? How long is delivery to VA?

    Our price is $195 per 5 gallon pail. Shipping takes 2-3 business days:

    Matt S:
    700 sf of clear pressure treated deck installed in August. Located in NY state. looking for a penetrating stain in a grey color.

    You need the 1500 Series for NY but it does not come in a gray.
