Restore-A-Deck Injectable Deck Stain Stripper is the first and only powdered concentrated deck stain stripper that is designed to be injected through a pressure washer. RAD Stain Stripper can be applied with a pump up sprayer as well.
The Restore-A-Deck stripper when injected will remove penetrating transparent and semi-transparent wood decking stain and coatings. Covers 150-200 sq. feet per gallon (750-1000 sq. feet total) when injected through pressure washer.
When applied through a pump sprayer, the RAD stripper is twice as strong and can remove most transparent, semi-transparent, and semi-solid deck stains. Great for removing failed semi-transparent acrylic stains! Covers 100-200 sq. feet per gallon (500-1000 sq. feet total) when applied with a pump sprayer.
The Restore-A-Deck Injectable Deck Stain Stripper needs to be neutralized with the Step 2 Wood Brightener.
*Will not remove solid color stains or paints.

Can restore a deck stripper remove semi transparent or semi solid Behrs stain from cedar deck
I have a 600 sqft dock with IPE wood. I need to clean or strip the Messmers simi Transparent oil that I applied 18 months ago. Should I use the striper or cleaner before using the brighter ?
What is the coverage for one container of the stripper if using a pump sprayer?
Question:We stained the 45x 25 deck (approximately 1125 sq ft two years ago with Olympic Elite Woodland Oil semi-sold stain. Being an oil semi-solid stain, how many containers of stripper would I need to refinish/re-stain the deck.Thanks
Would there ever be a reason to need to use both the cleaner then the stripper?
Hello, I'm interested in purchasing the deck stripper and brightener to remove solid paint stain off my deck and railings that is peeling terribly. If I apply the stripper with a regular sprayer and wait 15 -30 minutes, should I then go over the deck with a hard bristle brush followed by power washing it off. Do I wait until its completely dry before applying the Brightener or just partially dry? I wouldn't need the Cleaner too, right?Would you recommend mixing the powder with a paint mixer attachment for a power drill, or just mixing it in warm water to dissolve? Should I power sand the deck afterwards for best results before applying stain?And lastly can you recommend a brand of stain that is durable since my deck is south facing and gets quite a beating from sun and then snow? Would hate to go through all this and then have the stain only last one season!Thanks
Does someone carry our products in Sacramento?Thanks,Clark
I purchased the Gemini Cleaner brightener kit but after more research it looks like I need a stripper. Can I use the Gemini brightener with your stripper?
Will the stripper remove old varnish, some of which has already weathered away?
We are preparing to purchase supplies to strip and refinish our deck this summer. It currently has two coats of Behr Transparent Weather Proofing stain. I think I recall reading somewhere to mix the stripper so it is double the strength of the recommended mixing instructions to best remove the Behr. Our surface area is around 550 square feet including vertical surfaces. How many packages of stripper would you recommend we purchase? Also, please advise on the mixing recommendations for removing the Behr.
can I get a copy of the instructions on how to use it?
Hi, will this harm my vinyl siding? Do I need to take special precautions? How about the track on my sliding glass doors?Thank you!
HI.I'm planning to use the stripper using a power washer on a 600 sq. ft. deck and have several questions.1. Do I pre-wet the deck first?2. Will I see the old finish being removed as I go?3. Do I need to rinse each section after power washing4. Since it is a large deck, can I do the whole deck, and then go back and use the brightener?Thanks
Can your stripper remove epoxy? A lot of it has flaked off over the years, but there is still some in areas. Looking for something to strip that off.
Used your product on our deck and it was excellent. Can I use it on verticals? I have a cottage with wide board pine that needs stripping.Thank you.
Where can we obtain the material safety data sheet for restore-a-deck stripper?
I have a roof deck I need to strip. Will the stripper affect my silver roof coating (which contains aluminum)?
Hi I need to strip my deck that has solid stain on it. Most parts have flaked away a great deal. Just wondering if the Restore A Deck stripper will be effective on my deck or do you have another stripper that would work with the solid stain? Thanks, Tracy
New cedar deck this last fall October 2014. Extra wood was left on it and left very dark marks where wood sat. We were just ready to stain the deck when I was reading about restore a deck cleaner vs the stripper. Which would work best? After I will use brightener before sealing.
So we started the process of stripping our deck with the RAD stripper and it is working fantastic. However, when running out of the first 3 gallon mix my wife didn't take my advice and mixed another 3 gallon pump sprayer. We worked until dark and we have approx 1.25 gallons left in the pump sprayer. Is it safe to store for a couple days? Will it change its effectiveness?
Is the RAD stripper just a higher concentration than the cleaner, or is it made out of different ingredients? I have two containers of the cleaner, so I was wondering if it will harm anything if I increase the concentration of the cleaner. I've been unsuccessful so far in removing a water based SW deckscapes stain from a new Brazilian Redwood deck. I'm thinking of applying the higher concentration cleaner with a pump sprayer and broom, and then rinsing with a pressure washer before applying brightener. Will use TWP stain this time around.
I purchased a home with a deck in need of refinishing. I found a "used" can of Deckscapes semi transparent stain from Sherwin Williams in the garage which appears to be the one used on the failed deck. Will the stripper work on this stain? It could be 8 years old if that makes any difference?
We replaced all the flooring of an older wood deck with new pressure treated pine during the past 6-8 weeks (the deck is 50X24).We stained it five days ago with natural cedar tone (looked great on sample wood)but the color came out a horrible orange creme sherbet color, despite mixing it thoroughly and repeatedly.We want to strip the stain and start over. Can we use the restore-a deck stripper on new wood.Your advice will be greatly appreciated.Thanks
My deck is 15 yrs old & was stained about 8 yrs ago with Cabot semi-solid oil-based stain. The deck is exposed on 2 sides and is covered by the second story of the house. Will RAD stripper remove the stain without sanding? If sanding is necessary, am I better off to just sand and forget the stripper? I was planning to use Behr solid stain, but after reading here how difficult it is to remove, I'm having second thoughts. Your comments? Thank you
I need to strip old sealer off a roof deck. There is a skylight I know I've got to cover that. There's also a wrought iron fence - do I need to use painter's tape around bottom? The roof is rubberized with aluminum paint over. No problem with roof staining -Am concerned with damage to roof. I've used RAD cleaner & that's ok. Stripper okay as well or too caustic?
Hello:I am restoring a Mangaris deck that had a Penofin oil a year ago. It is very grey now. If I use the stripper, do I use the cleaner and brightener after? Or just the brightener?
I don't have a scale to measure out the 6-8 ounce of product per gallon. Is there a equivalent in cups?
After adding water to the stripper powder what is the "shelf life"? A day? A couple of days? A week?Same questions for the brightener and cleaner.Thanks.
My deck needs sanding. What procedures do you recommend and in what order. Sanding,stripping, and/or brightening.Thank You
Will your stripper remove a Cabot Semi Solid Deep Base stain?I have a new addition to the same deck (added stairs). Can I use the stripper on there and then the brightener to prep the new deck prior to staining or do you recommend using the deck cleaner instead?
I used the cleaner + brightener on my roof deck about two weeks ago. It got rid of most of the grime and old, failed stain but not quite all of it.Then a couple of days ago I used the stripper + brightener on a section of the deck to remove the rest of the stain that the cleaner didn't quite get.Now that the deck has dried, there is a noticeable difference in color between the section where I used the cleaner + brightener and the section where I used the stripper + brightener. The section where I used the stripper has a considerably more yellow tint while the section where I used the cleaner is much more pale. What should I do to get the color of the deck even before I apply the new stain? Should I do a round of stripper + brightener on the remaining part of the deck or can I just do another application of brightener on the section where I applied the stripper to get it the same pale color as the rest of the deck?Thanks
WOW! 30 year old covered deck, 16 x 16. 30 years of layers, including 2 layers of semi transparent oil based (yes, the prior owner used oil over oil). Used 1.5 gallons of "mix", 15 oz. total of solution, applied with a deck sprayer, set for 30 minutes, power washed off with a 40 degree tip, followed with brightener. Bare wood. 30 years of junk - gone. This product is the greatest.
I have a cedar deck and applied Thompson's tinted water sealer last summer it's looking weathered now (thought here are some areas where it was applied a little to thick). Will the Cleaner work on this or do I need to use the stripper? Thanks in advance.
Can the stripper be safely used near or on Timber Tech products? I have cedar decking but it's all surrounded by timber tech railings.
I used Behr Premium Wood-Toned Deck Waterproofing Wood Finish (Cedar Naturaltone No 501) which is peeling badly particurally where the sun hits most. I want to strip it. Will the Restore-A-Deck Stropper dot he trick?
