We can help you understand the difference between Preserva Wood and Architect Series.
On the opacity scale, zero is clear and 100 is solid. The lower the number is on the scale, the more natural the appearance while the higher the number is on the scale, the less natural in appearance but longer between maintenance coats.
Architect Series (a semi-transparent) is about 50 in opacity and Preserva Wood (a transparent or toner) is about 25 on this scale.
In order to decide between the two you should ask yourself…. What type of results do I want? Do I want rich or natural look? How often would I like to apply maintenance coats?
