    I bought a home last year that has an Ipe deck about 4-5 years old. At the time of purchase, the deck was a weathered grey. I have no idea if the previous owners ever maintained it in any way.  I recently pressure washed the deck to remove dirt and mildew and discovered the rich, warm color of the Ipe which I would like to keep. However, there are some areas where the pressure washer left marks that can still be seen when the deck is wet, so I’m assuming they will remain visible after staining. I’ve opted to get the RAD stripper (and brightener) instead of the RAD cleaner because a small area of the deck under an overhang still appears to have some stain remaining. Will the RAD stripper and brightener remove these pressure marks, or will I have to sand? And if sanding is necessary, will lightly sanding just the affected areas cause uneven stain adhesion? Thank you

      No, it will not remove the pressure washer marks. You would have to power sand all wood evenly to remove so the stain would absorb evenly. Do not spot sand.

    I have a nine year or pressure treated deck that has three coats of solid stain that has worn off in several places.  What do you recommend to use for preparation of the deck for one of our solid stains?  Strip, clean and brighten?

      Strip and brighen to remove the peeling solid stain. You do not have to remove all, just the peeling or loose solid stain when applying our solid stain.

    I used Olympic Maximum semi-transparent stain and sealant. Last year I ended up with a lot of peeling and would like to strip and redo. Will your product work for this application or must it be sanded? Also my vinyl siding was painted. If using this product will it affect the painted siding?  Thank you

      What you have on the wood now is a filming acrylic stain that is sitting on the wood like a paint. Not easy to strip fully off. Use the RAD stripper with both additives and pressure washing. Let dry and spot sand if needed any stubborn areas that will not strip. Brightener is last.

        Thank you for your quick response. That does not sound good. No where on their can does it state it’s acrylic. Guess I have a lot of work to do. The stripper with the additives will not harm my painted vinyl siding will it?

          RAD Products · 04/21/2022
          No, but always prewet and rinse any overspray while working so you do not have any dirt and soap drying on your paint creating a mess.

          The Olympic Maximum has lots of issues. Just search "Olympic Maximum Reviews" on Google

            Don’t think I’ll be using that product in the future. Is your product available in a cedar tone? And is it a water sealant or stain? Everything I see says stain. And if I use it will your stripper remove it if needed?  Thank you for you time

              Yes, we have a cedar color. It can be easily stripped if needed. FYI, all deck stains are sealers as well. You can never topcoat over a deck stain with a sealer, it would peel.

    I used Seal Once Nano Poly (clear) on my deck last year.  The portion of the deck in the sun doesn't bead up the water anymore, but the portion under the covered area does.  Do you recommend I strip just the portion under the covered area, or the whole deck?  Will this product remove Seal Once Nano Poly?  Would a cleaner be okay to use instead of the stripper?  Will the stripper ruin the aggregate concrete patio (with a sealer on it already) below the deck when it is washed off?

          Use the RAD stripper with both additives: https://www.restore-a-deck.com/rad-stain-stripper-additives.html

          Sand if needed any stubborn stain that cannot be stripped. RAD Brightener after.

                Thankyou! Last question. Will the stripper damage the black spindles we have in the picture? I assume if we get some on it from spraying it on or from power washing, it would come off just fine by wetting it

                  It should not but test first to be certain. Prewet and rinse overspray is typically what you need to do.

    Lisa · 04/02/2022
    Sorry, another couple of questions.  I haven't bought the products yet, but when you use them, do you have to scrub with a bristle brush or just mop and power wash them off?  Also, my humungus deck is on the 2nd floor, so any product will drip down my newly painted house (acrylic paint) and we try to wash it down, but will any of them harm my paint if they sit awhile?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly

      Apply and then pressure wash off. It should not harm paint but rinse overspray as soon as you can.

    15 year old deck with some minor splitting and no rot.
    Mostly cambara and with some red merant used on the top of the rails and privacy fencing.
    Current coating is Messmers UV Plus done 3 years ago. I’ve used Penofin Red Label in the past.
    I plan to strip and brighten the entire deck rails skirt and privacy fencing. Not having to
    pressure wash would be nice but I have a machine if you think it’s needed.
    Mildew and dirt typical here in southern New Hampshire
    I’m not sure what I will put on this time.
    Recommendations would be helpful on which cleaner stripper and brightener to use before applying a fresh coating. I really like a transparent coating that brings out the color and grain of the cambara.It’d be nice if something lasted a while.Your thoughts on a coating would be nice too.
    A few pictures are attached. Any advice will be appreciated.
    Thanks.

    I just bought a new home with an 80’ x 12” deck.  Deck has never been stained but unfortunately it has been treated with a water sealant.  After power washing twice I am not sure anything was removed and unsure if wood will accept a latex stain.  Will your stripper remove water sealant and prepare wood to accept stain?

        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.

          RAD Products · 10/28/2021
          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.

          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.

          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 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?

    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.

    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.
