This article is a guide to help determine the best way to strip your exterior deck or outside wood so you can achieve the maximum results.

Let's breakdown the three Restore-A-Deck Stripping components that can be used while removing your exterior stain.

Restore A Deck LogoHere is a great video from one of our customers showing how to prep and apply a maintenance coat of stain.

hot sun deck stain application issuesRestore-a-Deck Wood Stains can be applied to damp or dry wood but is best applied to damp wood. Easier and will avoid potential Hot Sun Application Issues.

Hot Sun Stain Application Potential Issues

Before you start your wood stain project, ensure your temperature conditions are optimal for best results. The air temperature should be between 45 degrees F and 90 degrees F. Check the weather forecast and do not start the staining process if the temperature is expected to drop below 45 degrees or if rain is a possibility in the next 12 hours.

If applying the Restore-A-Deck Wood Stain in full sun we suggest that you apply to a damp deck. Either 1-2 hours after prep or if the wood is already dry, lightly mist the deck with water prior to applying. Make sure all standing water/puddles are gone before applying the RAD stain.
