    Hello. about 3 summers ago, I stained our deck with semi-transparent Thompson's water proofing stain. It didn't take long for it to start looking bad (not sure if it was a bad application or bad product). I've used another deck stripper and sanding with decent results. Would your deck stripper have better results? Especially between the slats where sanding doesn't work well? Thank You!

      Hard to say. Looks very "thick" on the spots. Almost as if the stain is a solid color and the RAD will not remove a solid color stain.

        JOSHUA METZGER · 05/12/2018
        I think it's just cause I went over it too heavy originally. Hoping your product will help, even if it takes a few cycles. Can I stain over any stubborn spots with your dark stain after I brighten?

          You cannot apply the RAD stain over the Thompsons. Try to remove 95% or more.

    I need to strip the wooden railings on my deck. will the stripper and brightener harm the trex decking on the floor of the deck?

      No, it does not harm the Trex but it may clean it.

    GM, last year we stained our deck with Sherwin Williams water born Semi Transparent water base stain (cedar). Over the winter in the high traffic areas the stain lifted down to bare wood. My husband power washed the entire deck which easly lifted additional stain. Not happy with that he belt sanded down to the attached which is smooth and shows where stain penetrated and still remains. We are not happy with this product as that was the second time in 4 years we have had to redo. Would like to use your highly rated products. Can we stain over this, need to strip, etc. Please let me know what steps we need to take next. Thank you Colleen Freel

      You cannot stain over this. Try stripping to remove as much as you can and then sand again to remove the rest. Sand with 60-80 grit, no finer. Shoot for 95% or more removal. Brighten all wood when done.

      Send some pictures when done to make sure the prep is good to go.

    My desk has Behr semi-transparent stain that has not held up well. I'd like to strip it, but my desk is located on my roof. My roof is a flat torch-down rubber roof, would the stripper degrade or harm the roof in any way? Thank you.
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 04/28/2018
      It should not harm the roof. Behr is a difficult stain to strip. You may need to strip more than once to get it all off.

    Joe. Trust me. Get 2sprayers. After you strip and spray there will be areas you want to retreat . If you dump your stuff you will have to remix. If Its a warm day you have to move very fast to keep everything moist... I used the product for the first time. The first treatment was weak, so I did a second treatment and the wood was like new!! Good luck

    I just ordered this product and plant to use next week. I likely will not need to mix all of it and will mix according to the package directions for what I think I will need. My question is, what is the recommended way to dispose of extra stripper and brightener that has been mixed? Also how do you recommend cleaning a standard pump sprayer? Since the applications of stripper and brightener happen one right after the other I would think you would need to clean the pump sprayer pretty quickly in-between after using it for the stripper to use the sprayer for the brightener.
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 04/24/2018
      Clean sprayer with water. Very easy. Best to use all product that is mixed on the deck while using. If leftover, the brightener will neutralize the stripper so can be disposed of without issues.

    My deck abuts vinyl siding and has vinyl posts. Will the stripper harm the vinyl? Do I need to tape the edge or several inches up. Im planning on applying with a garden sprayer. Also I assume the stripper will remove a coat of TWP.
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 04/16/2018
      It should not harm vinyl and it will remove TWP stains. Brighten after to neutralize.

        Brad · 04/16/2018
        I’m assuming that yearly reapplications of RAD water based stain will be easier than TWP. Am I correct?

          Actually, they are both maintained the same way. No difference.

          Semi-transparent? It should work well on that. If the oil-based version, it will be fairly easy. If the water-based version, you may need to do the process 1-2 times. Make sure you also use a pressure washer.

                        1 Stripper/Brightener Kit for the 500 sq. feet. 2-3 of the Cleaner/Brightener Kits for the 2000 sq. feet.

                        Yes, you need to brighten all.

      Best to avoid getting the stripper on any plants as it may "brown" the leaves. Cover the plants before applying and rinse well with water when done.

      RAD Products · 03/12/2018
      No. you cannot use a scrub brush for applying deck stain nor would a deck staining brush work for the prep products.

      The prep products are applied best with a pump sprayer and then heavily scrubbed or pressure washed off. Best to pressure wash, especially if stripping.

      The Deck Stain is best applied with a stain pad or stain brush.

      See here for examples of all:

    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 03/11/2018
      Sikkens has many different types of decking stain and knowing the color, will not determine if it is solid or semi-transparent. It should say on the can the type of stain that it is.

    I've got a Teak wood swim platform on my boat. There is no stain or polyurethane on it, just plain wood that was probably treated with teak oil in the past. Would this be a good project for restore-a-deck? I've used EFC-38 and citralic in the past and I believe this is similar. Thanks

    Hiya--I want to stain a new boat dock made of pressure treated pine. How long should I wait to let the new wood deck age to to permit it to dry out to accept the stain? The dock is on the Gulf of Mexico side of Florida. I plan to use a solid color water based product. I'm getting a wide range of answers here. Thanks

      The answer is actually based on the brand of stain that you end up choosing. Best to read and follow their directions. Normally 3-6 months.

    We have pressure washed the deck and still have a lot of stain remaining on the sides and railing. But, most is off the flat deck area. I'm thinking we need stripper to get remaining off and cleaner for the area that we tried to clean. Then use brightener! Your thoughts?

    Looking at the deck board as well as the picture of siding- do you think they both have stain? We bought the house recently and this is our first home and we are not too handy. So trying to figure out if we need stripper or cleaner. Can you please have a look at the pictures and let us know before we order? I plan to order today.

    I have a redwood deck with some older large redwood posts that have been recently sanded, as well as new redwood that has just been installed. Am I correct that both of these surfaces need to be cleaned and then neutralized? Could the stripper and brightener cause any tannin bleeding? Thanks.

    On my house I have steel siding and under my deck I have installed an aluminum roof system as I have a walk out basement. Will this stripper have any effect on the steel siding or the aluminum roof system I have installed?

    When I purchased the home many boards on the deck needed replaced. I want to strip and stain the deck so it is uniform.

    It should not but always best to test a spot first to be certain there are not any issues.
