We stained the 45x 25 deck (approximately 1125 sq ft two years ago with Olympic Elite Woodland Oil semi-sold stain. Being an oil semi-solid stain, how many containers of stripper would I need to refinish/re-stain the deck.

Would there ever be a reason to need to use both the cleaner then the stripper?
Hello, I'm interested in purchasing the deck stripper and brightener to remove solid paint stain off my deck and railings that is peeling terribly.
If I apply the stripper with a regular sprayer and wait 15 -30 minutes, should I then go over the deck with a hard bristle brush followed by power washing it off.
Do I wait until its completely dry before applying the Brightener or just partially dry? I wouldn't need the Cleaner too, right?
Would you recommend mixing the powder with a paint mixer attachment for a power drill, or just mixing it in warm water to dissolve?
Should I power sand the deck afterwards for best results before applying stain?
And lastly can you recommend a brand of stain that is durable since my deck is south facing and gets quite a beating from sun and then snow? Would hate to go through all this and then have the stain only last one season!

We are preparing to purchase supplies to strip and refinish our deck this summer. It currently has two coats of Behr Transparent Weather Proofing stain. I think I recall reading somewhere to mix the stripper so it is double the strength of the recommended mixing instructions to best remove the Behr. Our surface area is around 550 square feet including vertical surfaces. How many packages of stripper would you recommend we purchase? Also, please advise on the mixing recommendations for removing the Behr.
can I get a copy of the instructions on how to use it?
Hi, will this harm my vinyl siding? Do I need to take special precautions? How about the track on my sliding glass doors?
I'm planning to use the stripper using a power washer on a 600 sq. ft. deck and have several questions.
1. Do I pre-wet the deck first?
2. Will I see the old finish being removed as I go?
3. Do I need to rinse each section after power washing
4. Since it is a large deck, can I do the whole deck, and then go back and use the brightener?
Can your stripper remove epoxy? A lot of it has flaked off over the years, but there is still some in areas. Looking for something to strip that off.

Hi I need to strip my deck that has solid stain on it. Most parts have flaked away a great deal. Just wondering if the Restore A Deck stripper will be effective on my deck or do you have another stripper that would work with the solid stain? Thanks, Tracy
