    2 questions. Can Restore-A-Deck semi transparent stain be applied with a sprayer? Will the stain adhere to my white vinyl siding and railing system?

      Yes, it can be sprayed. You cannot get it on vinyl.

    Last summer I cleaned, brightened, and stained (natural semi-transparent) a new pine deck with RAD products. I had planned to do a maintenance coat this year with the same stain. Instructions on your cleaner package says that it preps for maintenance coats, that it removes existing weathered stains, and that "it is recommended for surface preparation prior to ... reapplication of wood stains."

    Elsewhere, however, your instructions say that existing stain should be removed by stripping before re-staining. Please resolve the conflict. I would prefer to prep using the cleaner, as I already have cleaner in hand.

      When recoating with the same stain and color, you can use the cleaner.

        Will using the cleaner remove existing RAD stain?? And must I use the cleaner and then brightener, or just the cleaner if I want to apply a maintenance coat?

          Use both for best results.

            Does the cleaner and brightenre remove the existing stain??? I just stained last year and don't want to undo everything done last year. Or am I misunderstanding what a maintenance stain is?
            Thanks.

              Only use the cleaner and brightener products if you are recoating as it may thin your current stain some but that is the point as you want your new coating to adhere.
