    We have a 30 year old cedar deck. Two years ago we stripped it and stained with Cabot SPF. Fair size patches have completely peeled/flaked off. Will your Restore-a-deck stripper remove the Cabot SPF. Cabot calls this a translucent stain (but looks more semi-solid to me).

    Sprayers are best but you could also try to brush it on. If it is beading off then the stripper will have a hard time activating. It needs to soak in for it to work correctly.

    What's the best way to apply to deck balusters and in between the balusters to remove thompson's waterseal? I tried a sprayer multiple times followed by a powerwasher, but had very little penetration. Due to the vertical angle, most of the stripper beads up and drips off. Thanks.

    Antara D, you could use a scrub brush and bucket to apply and remove. It will be more work though then using a pressure washer.

    I need to strip and brighten a deck that is several stories high and would like to avoid using a sprayer or a power washer. If I've resolved to do this, how would you recommend applying stripper and brightener? Can I just use the deck stain pads or should those be reserved for stain?

    Ron, it should remove the Penofin as long as the Penofin is not extremely over applied. Yes you do need to brighten when done.

    My deck is 30 year old clear cedar. After Penofin's "stripper" I still have splotches of old Penofin oil. Will your stripper take off the remainder? Do I have to use your brightener afterwards? Thanks.

    What is the active ingredient in the Restore-a-Deck stripper? I'm trying to buy gloves and want to make sure I get the right material. Thanks.

    Used RAD stripper on my deck and was very pleased with results. Applied with pump sprayer, allowed it to sit for 15-30 mins, then worked the loosened gunky old sealant off with deck brush and sprayed clean with a garden hose. Have not tried other cheaper strippers from home improvement stores, so I can't say it works better than other brands, but I can say it did the job on my large (~600) sq ft deck. My only word of caution is that their suggested coverage may be on the optimistic side- I used every bit of the bottle on my deck, when it says it can cover up to 1000 sq feet/5 gallons of diluted concentrate when applied with pump sprayers. Even if I had been more conservative, there's no way I was getting near 1000 sq. ft. coverage.

    The RAD Stripper should be effective at removing the Cabot stain.

    I have a 1 y/o pretreated (Cabots ATO) mahogany deck that needs to be re-stained. I'm planning on using Armstrong Clark mahogany semi transparent stain. It's been suggested that I strip what's left of the ATO and then use a brightener. Will the stain stripper be enough or will I have to sander as well? I live on Cape Cod and the deck is south facing with full sun.

    Wolman Durastain is a semi-solid acrylic stain that films on top of the wood like a paint. It is the second most difficult stain type to remove, just below a solid stain. The stripper will help to remove but you may need to strip it more then once and possibly sand a little for difficult areas.

    Hi,
    I have a 5 year old deck with Wolman Durastain Semi transparent (Cedar)that I would like to strip and restain. Will this product work removing the stain? I also have landscaping around the deck will the stripper and brightener be harmful to the plants?

    I failed to mention that the lumber that was used is weather treated wood. does this make a differnce?

    It should remove most but stains that are just applied may need to be stripped 1-3 times to get it all off. If you wait until Spring it will be easier to remove.

    Hard to say for 100% sure. Is the Olympic the water based version or the oil based version?

    I recently built and stained a deck with Olympic Maximum semi-trans 6 year protection, neutral base, stain/sealer. problem is: the stain is way darker than the swatch (almost chocolate brown). It still needs a second coat too. I thought about doing the second coat in a much lighter stain so it doesnt darken even more. Ive also thought about doing the restore-a-deck stain remover and brightener and starting over. Will this remover work to where I can re-stain it with a walnut stain and will it lift the chocolate color? Please help. thx!

    If you cannot see it then it is probably gone.

    Thank you,

    Is there a way to tell that all of the Penofin is gone?

    RAD Products · 10/02/2012
    This will remove the Penofin. Make sure to use the RAD brightener after.

    I have a 25 year old redwood deck that was treated a few years back with Penofin clear oil. The deck has gone from nice to almost black. I have sanded the deck but understand that I also need to use a stripper to fully remove the oil.

    Is your product strong enough for this job or do you reccommend another stripper?

    RAD Products · 09/19/2012
    Yes that is correct.

    I have sanded and used RAD stripper. Would my next step be the RAD brightner and then stain?

    I would use a pressure washer with the stripper and then sand after if needed. Do not use a wire brush.

    You can use a solid but like I mentioned, it will be a pain to deal with in the future when applying TWP.

    Dan · 09/19/2012
    Hi-
    I just did a sample application of the RAD stripper to see how it would do on what I think is semi solid stain. I didn't use a pump sprayer b/c I have no familiarity with it, and I used a natural fiber brush to scrub the wood. Most of the stain came off, but it was a lot of work. Would you recommend sanding beforehand? Or afterwards as needed? Also, is a wire brush too harsh for a deck?
    Thanks.

    Thank you. I am referring to the exposed portion of the pressure treated wood. Here in the NW the stuff has holes all over it and is basically orange. My beams and vertical supports are made of the stuff and are not wrapped in cedar. Even the superdeck stuff didn't make much of a stain on the orange pressure treat and I am sure the TWP won't either----it will still be orange. Kinda the hand we are dealt out here if you don't wrap with cedar. So, that is why I was wondering about a solid stain on the noticeably visible portions of the superstructure.....

    Thanks
