    We appreciate the positive feedback!

    If you sand make sure to sand all otherwise it will look like you spot sanded when you stain. It would be a good idea to use the brightener after the sanding.

    For the underside I would not use a solid. Whenever you stain the exposed top side the stain will drip down on top the solid and leave it looking messy. I would use the same stain for the underside as you use on the top.

    I purchased your RAD stripper and brightner, along with TWP awhile back......after countersinking my screws (all 2000 of them) and replacing cracked boards, my 18 month old cedar deck is ready to be stripped, brightened, and sealed. I did a small 10x10' porch area with the stripper 3 days ago---the old product that failed was Superdeck..WOW, this stripper works well. I used a garden hose to flush it off, then used the brightner. what I now see are areas the stripper didn't get down into, so I am thinking light sanding, then the TWP.
    Any brightner AFTER the sanding or just blow off dust and seal??

    Also, the deck superstructure is all pressure treated wood and is not wrapped. It really needs color as it is all orange. I debated a solid stain on that portion only but in the future if we strip or whatever the TWP off the boards, I am wondering about damage to the finish of the pressure treated portions. Any idea what would be useful on the pressure treated stuff to add color?

    Thanks, and that stripper is incredible stuff...

    RAD stripper does not remove solid stains completely.

    I have a deck which I put solid stain on about 4 years ago. I have completely sanded the deck surface down to the wood, but there are some spots around nails and in deep wood grains that I am unable to get sanded down. I want to get these spots stripped but dont know the best rout to take. If I stain over them I am concerned the stain will not take. Any feeback would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    The RAD stripper is an excellent product and would help remove the Behr. Behr though can be difficult to remove as it is basically a then paint. You may need to strip it a couple of times to get it off.

    Failure to strip will result in a uneven appearance when there are still remnants of old stain partially left.

    Our deck has been stained twice in 3 years. First time when we put it up and then last time 1 year ago, using Behr. After the winter, with the dogs running in and out, most of the deck stain flaked off. The wood is practically barren in most open areas. Water does not bead up in 80% of the deck surface. There are strips of stain left on the stairs and it is more complete in sections under our overhang. But hubby is thinking it would be fine NOT using a stripper...what do you think? What if we did not use it?

    I would mix the 2# container of the RAD stripper with 5 gallons of water. Inject on with you chemical injector. You will get close to 1000 sq. feet of coverage with the 5 gallon pail quite easily but it does depend on the brand on stain you are trying to remove. Some brands are difficult to remove and you should use a pump sprayer instead.

    I am trying to determine application concentration with a pressure washer. We are working vertically and overhead on the porch and need to be up and down a ladder with all 4 sides of posts to be done. On testing with the chemical injector, I use 2 cups of "chemical" to spray a gallon of water which happens in about 30 seconds. At that rate, I will use up 5 gallons in 20 minutes which seems very fast and a huge amount of stripper. Directions say it will do 500-1000 s.f. but the math doesn't seem to add up. There is no adjustment on the rate of spray. Also, I am diluting the solution by a 1:8 ratio. Will it still be effective?

    You can inject the RAD stripper with a downstream injector and a soap tip. Saturate the wood well and let sit for 10-15 minutes. Pressure was off.

    I am applying RAD Stripper with a Craftsman pressure washer. Do I use the soap/detergent hose and nozzle? Any special dierections?

    The RAD Stripper will remove most of it but Behr can be stubborn. If you cannot get it all off then I would suggest the Armstrong Clark in one of the semi-solid colors.

    Hello - we are prepping an older pressure treated deck for staining. The old stain appears to be semi-trans (color is uniform, but can see grain). The old stain is likely Behr brand. We've replaced a few boards with the current flavor of pressure treated wood (home depot). The new boards haven't been stained.

    Two questions:
    Is the RAD stripper the best choice for this scenario? If we go with the RAD stripper and it doesn't get off all the old finish (and we don't want to sand due to the toxic wood), should we stick with semi-trans, or go with a solid color stain?

    Thanks

    In some cases the stripper may raise the grain slightly. If it does then you can lightly sand with 60 grit after using the stripper and brightener.

    Do I need to sand the deck if I use RAD? My plan of attack, because a semi transparent stain was put on, is to use the stripper then the brightener and skip the cleaner then seal.

    Behr can be very difficult to remove. I would strip off as much as possible then sand off the rest if needed.

    I've unfortunately used Home Depot water-based (Bear) products to "cedar" stain my deck. Now it is a hodgepodge of open, split cedar wood, some of it fairly bare...but split and some of it with splotches of it Baer stain...and split. I have a big deck, lots of spindles, and lots of stairs. I'm going to try restore-a-deck stripper and brightener. Assuming it works, then what? Assuming it doesn't work, then what?

    Would pump sprayer be best choice for RAD stripper on lousy, unknown brand stain on deck?

    Yes. You do not need a cleaner if you use the stripper.

    Hi,
    Does the RAD stripper eliminate the need to use the RAD cleaner?
