    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?

    I have about 850 sq/ft of deck. How much stripper/brightener do I need and will a 5 gallon can of TWP 100 be enough?

      RAD Products · 09/08/2021
      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.

      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.

      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?

      RAD Products · 07/13/2021
      Hard to say as it depends on the stain brand and type you have on the posts below. Best to cover to be certain.

    If I want to restore my deck in the summer, I cannot use this stripper as the surfaces will never be above 50°?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 07/02/2021
      Not sure what you mean. The temp is 99% of the time above 50 in the Summer depending on where you live.

    Any idea if your product will remove this? Believe it's semi solid? Looks like a very light coat. Maybe have trouble with red but?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 07/02/2021
      It is solid stain and the stripper will not remove solid stains fully.

      Yes, but make sure to rinse them well when done to remove all the soap, dirt, grime, etc.

    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.

      RAD Products · 06/22/2021
      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.

        How strong a pressure washer should I get? Is 1800 PSI sufficient?
        • We will reply to your comment shortly
          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.

    Help ... not sure what product(s) were used on this deck by previous owners.  I would like restore the wood but not sure what products to use or if sanding is the best way to go.  Any advise would be appreciated.

    What’s the best way to remove this white paint on my deck railings? I am stripping and sanding the solid color deck stain on the boards, but this white paint seems much harder to remove

      RAD Products · 06/16/2021
      You will need to sand this off. Stripping will not remove it.

    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!

      RAD Products · 06/15/2021
      You can do this at the end. New wood needs 3-4 months of weathering before prep and staining.

    Finished!!! That is a lot of work. Stripped last autumn and washed and brightened our gazebo this year. What a nice job. Thanks for all your tips. My next question is how long will the TWP 200 last. When it’s time to redo it, do we need to strip again, or just washed and stain.

      Redo every 2-3 years is normal. Clean and brighten for prep.

    Travis · 06/12/2021
    I've done one round with the stripper, and it did a pretty decent job in most places but there were some that were pretty stubborn. I'd like to give it another go after buying some more along with the additives. My question is should I use the brightener now while I wait for the additional stripper to arrive or can I just wait to brighten after I'm all done.

    I have 60' of cedar fence to strip and stain with RAD stain. I'll use a power washer. I expect the stripping will take me more than one day as I'm working alone. I read in another post that I can strip in sections. Should I both strip and brighten a section before moving on to the next section, or is it best to strip the whole thing and then come back and brighten all at once? If I need to sand any areas after stripping, should that be done before or after brightening? If after, do I need to clean and/or brighten again before staining? For sanding, what grit of sandpaper should I use?

      In your scenario, strip all first. If you need to sand, then do this next. Brighten all after.

    Hello, planning to strip and brighten, however rain is in the forecast.   Can i strip and brighten, then wait for rain to stop in weather pattern and stain my deck.   Basically Will the rain harm my deck that is prepped and ready? How long can i wait to stain ( live in northwest)?    Using Armstrong Clark for stain. Thank you

      Rain does not harm prep. Wait 48 hours after rain or prep to stain with the Armstrong Clark Stains.
