    Trying to figure out whether to use the 1500 or the 200 on my cedar siding/cedar shake house. House was built and stained in 1998 and hasn't been updated since. Bottom of house is cedar siding, and top is cedar shake.

    For your area you should use the 100 Series. Prep first with the Gemini Restore Kit. This article will help explain newer wood: http://www.twpstainhelp.com/prepping-new-wood-for-twp-stains/

    Leon, the 100 Series as long as your state is not on the low VOC list otherwise the 1500. Use Gemini Restore Kit for the prep.

    We have a new pine deck - 6 months old. Which would you recommend the 100 series or 1500 series. Deck is in full sun most of day.

    TWP is supposed to weather for 4-6 months, than prepped correctly for the prep with the Gemini Restore Kit.

    Pre-staining may hinder the results. Sanding, while removing mill glaze, smooths the surface additionally, preventing proper penetration.

    I've got about 550 sq ft of smooth cedar T&G soffit and 700 sq ft of cedar deck, what should I use and when? I'd like to pre-stain the soffit, can I sand it to get the mill glaze off and pre-stain?

    Lighter colors mean less UV protection from fading then darker colors. Honeytone will fade the fastest, Make sure to prep with the Gemini Restore Kit first. Use the 1500 Series. I would suggest getting some samples from the site to test.

    What product do you recommend for treated deck? Location: Northeastern Iowa; built in 2010; MicroPro™/AC2 treated wood from Menards; NEVER been treated/sealed; deck is on north side about 10' off ground of one story ranch walkout so 3/4 of deck in sun majority of the day. So that the wood grain is visible, we would like a minimal color/tint (Cedartone or Honeytone) but with maximum protection. Recommendations? Thank you!

    I live in Tennessee and have 2 pressure treated pine decks. Pool deck is 2 years old and never stained, full sun. Will be professionally cleaned in 2 weeks. The other is 5 years old, part sun, part shade, never sealed. Also will be professionally cleaned in 2 weeks. I would like them to look as natural as possible. also concerned about pool chlorine on the pool deck. Suggestions?

    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.

    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.
