Is one better than the other?? My dealer use to carry the 500X but now apparently carry the 140N. The 140 is non-woven whereas the 500X is woven. What do I do?????

For residential applications, is most cases you should be ok with the 140n.

So your saying the 500x is more appropriate/better? Its what I'm use to using, but I want to make sure I'm using the best/most appropriate product I can. My assumption would have been that the woven material would be better, but looking at the comparison posted by jg, it seems Mirafi is saying the 140 is more versatile.

depends what you're using it for.

specs show 500X is sturdier than 140N, but less permeable.

in, say, a retaining wall application you would select 500X to wrap your base pad and 140N to wrap your drainage zone.
