    Dan, they are similar but darker or richer colors will give better UV protection. For example, the TWP 115 Honeytone is lighter then the 1515 Honeytone so in essence the 1515 would give better UV protection. The 1515 Honeytone is lighter then the 102 Redwood. One series is not always better then the other when it comes to UV protection. More of a color thing.

    I need help in deciding My deck gets a lot of sun exposure here in Arkansas.Which is better for UV and for the color to hold up longer. TWP 100 or TWP 1500. Your on site comparison does not help in making that decision. If you have any special pricing please let me know. Thanks...Dan Martinez

    We have a deck that is in full sun all day in middle TN. Weather often over 100 degrees daytime. Deck has been stained four years ago, no stain remains. Some mildew. Lots of traffic and a large dog. What do you recommend to prep? Sod surrounds the area below the deck. What do you recommend for stain? Thank you.

    Janice, best to do in Spring. Prep first with the Gemini Restore Kit and stain with either the 100 or 1500 Series.

    Try the 1501 and the 1520 Pecan. Yes the 1500 works best for fences.

    PT Pine deck built last summer. Has not had any treatment yet. What and when should we do for the first treatment.

    I plan to stain my new cedar picket fence. The cedar is pretty light in color, not as red as some cedar pickets I have seen. I just received today my Rustic sample. I like it, but it is a bit dark and has a bit more red hues than I want. I like a fence color to be pretty saturated, but this is a little dark.

    I plan on ordering 2 more samples. What two would you suggest? Additionally, should I use the 1500 product? That's what my first sample was of.

    Thanks for your advice.

    TWP is a semi-transparent stain that penetrates into the wood. It does not dry on top of the wood so it does not "scratch" the surface.

    How resistant is the TWP 100 to scratches? I have 2 dogs. Is it a solid or semi- solid stain?

    I would wait until Spring, prepping first with the Gemini Restore Kit.

    Ely, I would suggest the 100 Series for this. Make sure to prep first so the wood is clean and free of old coatings or dirt.

    I have a new PT pine deck built last year and was stained with TWP 200, 60 days later. I live in GA. I would like to apply a second coat, how long do I have to wait?

    I live in the NC mtns. We have both uncovered and covered decking.....standard treated wood about 6 years old. The exposed deck area builds up a fair amount of mildew. Which of your products would you recommend for the decking and railings?

    Sorry I did mean to say the 1500 as that is compliant for Northern VA and the 100 is not.

    Durastain is not easy to remove. I would ask Wolman as to what they suggest to remove their stain.

    Any stain strippers you would recommend? Also, just curious about why you've recommended TWP 100 over the 1500?

    I forgot to mention in my previous post that the cabin is currently sided with T1-11 plywood.

    We would suggest the TWP 100 Series for this. You can order small sample bottles from the website to test to color.

    For you to use the TWP you would need to remove the Wolman Durastain from the wood. You cannot apply TWP on top of it. This would need to be donw with a strain stripper and or sanding. Cleaning alone with TSP will not remove Wolman Durastain.

    Will be re-staining our cabin in Northern WI the Spring/early summer of 2014. What product would you recommend?

    - cabin is in a clearing, so lots of natural light
    - couple of walls have pretty direct eastern/southern exposure
    - previously stained with a cedar colored wolman dura stain (nearly 100% certain) about 5-6 years ago
    - I'm planning to clean with a TSP/bleach/water solution. Any other surface prep recommendations?
    - We haven't selected a color yet, will be cedar or a darker color. Do you have swatch books?

    dhrenfro, you need to strip, not clean the deck. The Gemini Kit does not contain a stripper. You would need the Restore A Deck Stripper and wood brightener. You may also need to sand as you have a build up of stain. You amounts are very low. Need a total sq. footage with flooring, rails, steps, etc to give an idea.

    I am considering your product for my residence deck. Structure is 1400sqft PT pine plus railings and 3 three-riser steps - one stretching 15ft, built 6 years ago. PPG SunProof was the original coating, then Flood WUV. I am treating now with 'Wet&Forget' to kill algae that seems to have come in the can with the Flood. I am located in NC under a lot of oak trees. I want to do a 'honey gold' to 'cedar' color; current color is a darker cedar. It appears I will need two of the Gemini cleaning kits, 8 Gal. 100 series stain. What is your recommendation 100 vs. 1500 and is my estimate too low on product? Thank you in advance for your assistance.
