        It’s an older formula I think from 2009 on the spindles (the deck is something different) I’ve sanded off some of the larger areas but the spindles are impossible to get between.

          In many areas, it looks like it is applied to the point that it looks like a solid/opaque stain, not semi-transparent. The RAD stripper will not remove a solid stain fully. You can use it with both additives and remove some or a lot, but sanding will be needed as well to get it off fully.

    For ipe front steps (in full sun and weather all day), I've been using the cleaner and brightener then a non-toxic oil Penofin Verde. It darkens very quickly, and I've been doing the process twice a year. It's a real pain! Would the stripper work better to clean? Thanks!
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 10/19/2021
      Yes, and the issue is the Penofin. It has known issues of darkening or turning black. Use our RAD Stain in Light Walnut. Much better and will not darken in color.

    I've started stripping cedar siding on my house with your Wood Stain Stripper and it's working well, but have not applied the Brightener. Will NOT neutralizing the stripper with the brightener cause problems when staining (with Ready-Seal stain)? The siding is completely dry.

        Will it cause any problems applying the brightener a few weeks (or more) after stripping?
        • We will reply to your comment shortly
          RAD Products · 10/19/2021
          Sooner or same day is best. If you wait more than 2 weeks you will need to redo a light prep by washing with water and then applying the brightener.

    I used your stripper (with booster) and whitener full strenght on a cedar ceiling that had been stained 3 years ago and started getting black mold.  Stripping worked perfectly.  I then stained a section with 2 coats of your cedar stain.  I didn't like the way I applied it (it was splotchy) so I decided to strip it the next day and planned to re-stain it.  Well, I tried stripping it twice (full strength with booster) but it barely put a dent in it. Have you had people successfully strip your stain a short time after application?   I am wondering if I have to give up stripping it and will have to sand it.

      We have been able to strip newly applied RAD semi-transparent stain without issues. Not sure why you are having an issue. Send a picture.

          Looks like you really over-applied it maybe? Try letting the stripper dwell on the stain for 30-60 minutes. You may need to mist it to keep it from drying out.

            I applied 2 very light coats of stain.  I will try letting the stripper stay on longer. Thanks for quick reply

    I am building a new house and they just stained our front porch cedar posts and header. It is stained a dark walnut color. As soon as it was done, my heart sank. I wish I could go back to the original cedar color. The builder said that we would never be able to get the color out because cedar is such a soft wood. Would this work to strip the color back to normal? (One pic is of the original and the other is after the stain)

    I applied Stripper per directions and power washed (just finished). Then I did some extra rinsing to assure that all of the Stripper wash washed away. However, no matter how much rinsing that I do I get froth in places. That makes me wonder. The sun is out now and I am bushed after 2+ hours of power washing. What would be a good plan going forward? I need to rest and eat lunch. The deck will I be in shade again in about 3 hours.

    I stripped, brightened, and stained a portion of my deck yesterday.  It is a new deck, some planks still had mill glaze, it has been sanded.  The stripper appears to have lifted strands of wood on the newer planks and gives a fuzzy appearance.  What did I do wrong?

      You should have used the cleaner on new wood.

        Even if it had mill glaze, I thought stripper was necessary to get rid of that?  What should I do for this portion of the deck?

          You use the cleaner not stripper to remove mill glaze and oxidation from new wood that has weathered.

    I have a tigerwood deck that goes out over a pond with fish in it and I need to strip and brighten the deck before I stain it. Is the stripper and brightener safe to use when the runoff will be going into my fish pond?

      1-2 of each of the stripper and brightener kits and 7-9 gallons of stain for two coats.

    Hi, I have a gazebo that has been stained with the Cabot Australian oil, it will be due next year to restain, can I just clean and brighten with your products and apply the Cabot stain. I’m just trying to avoid to strip everything.

      RAD Products · 09/03/2021
      No. You must strip when switching brands of stain.

        Sandra · 09/03/2021
        I will not be switching brands, I just want to know if I could use your cleaner and brightener, then stain with the same stain that I already have on it now which is the Cabot stain

    I have a deck with pickets previously stained with Cabot SPF 48 Semi-transparent stain. I understand that on the deck portion and top railing I should use the RAD Stripper and will probably have to sand, then brighten. The pickets are a problem. They're not heavily stained and if I use the stripper on them I understand it may not take all the stain out but will it be sufficient to apply your TWP 1550 Dark Oak which matches the color of my previous stain? It will be impossible to strip all these pickets.
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 09/02/2021
      You have to remove all of the current Cabot stain when switching to a different semi-transparent stain like TWP.

    Are the RAD stripper, booster, thickener, and brightener products safe for stainless steel?  The product information doesn't mention it, so I'm asking to make sure that they won't etch/corrode (or otherwise damage) the posts, railings, cables, and structural parts of my deck.

    Newbie deck DIYer: We moved into a new house and the previous owner replaced the floor planks but didn't stain them. However, they left the original railing and it's a fairly dark stain. For the railings, should I use your cleaner first *then* the stripper? I'm wanting to do the entire deck with your cedar stain color. Thanks!

    I’ve started my deck refinishing by removing some spots of old finish with a orange base stripper.  It worked well, but I noticed as I was washing off the stripper that a few spots on the deck repelled water.  Should I use your stripper first just to make sure?  Or can I just use the cleaner?  The deck looks unsealed to the naked eye.

    If I use Restore-A-Deck Wood Stain Stripper with a power washer on my deck, it may drip on the stained wooden support columns below the deck. So, I am trying to gauge how quick/how powerful this product is. Do I need to cover the columns in advance, or may I just wash them off immediately?

      Hard to say as it depends on the stain brand and type you have on the posts below. Best to cover to be certain.

    Is RAD Stripper supposed to be able to remove Behr Premium Semi-Transparent Waterproofing Stain & Sealer (1-2 coats applied 3 years ago) without using a pressure washer? I prepared as instructed, including using the Booster Stripper Additive and have been scrubbing for 2 hours on 4 deck boards, and there is still quite a lot of residual stain. I'm going to need to repeat the entire RAD stripper process, which means I need at least twice as much RAD  stripper as recommended (500 sq foot deck + railings, I only bought enough RAD Stripper to make 5 gallons). This is most definitely not a one-day project for one person.

      Behr can be difficult hard to remove and especially if over applied as it then acts like a solid stain. Pressure washing would help. Post some pictures of the deck with the stain on it.

          RAD Products · 06/22/2021
          Up to 3000 psi is better. Post some pictures first before doing that. Want to make sure what you have on there will come off. Behr can apply like a solid stain and that means you cannot strip fully.

              Yep, that taupe gray color is on there like a solid stain, not a semi-transparent. Behr lies to customers about this all the time about their products. You probably will not be able to strip it all off but another application and pressure washing would result in 90-100% removal. You may need to spot sand to get it 100% off.

    I have an order of RAD stain samples coming in today. I’m about to strip/brighten an area for my testing. I will be determining my preference on color tomorrow once it has dried & will be putting in my order. I’d like to continue on with the stripping while I wait for my stain to arrive. I’ve read that it is best to stain a few hours after the strip/brightener has been done. Based on the time it is taking me to receive my samples [6 days] I assume it will at least take the same amount of time to receive my new order of stain. My question is: Is 6 days too long to go between stripping & staining or will I have to clean/brighten right before I stain?

    I'm restoring a 700 sq foot, 16 year old cedar deck.  I need to replace many of the rotted boards and re-stain.  I'm planning to use the TWP semi-solid pro series stain in a dark grey color.  Question:  should I use the Restore-A-Deck-Stain Stripper before replacing all the old boards or can I just do that at the end just before staining?   Since I will now have a mix of new deck boards with the old boards, is there anything special/different that I need to do?   Thanks!

      You can do this at the end. New wood needs 3-4 months of weathering before prep and staining.
