    My deck is 20 x 14 and has close to 100 spindles plus 6 steps. It is going to take me awhile to clean or strip then brighten this deck. How soon after cleaning and brightening do I have to stain?

    I used the cleaner, then stripper on a 4 year old redwood deck. However, after powerwashing and then applying brightener, the wood is now dark and it either product has not taken it down to the bare wood. When attempting to repeat these steps, it has done nothing. I have had to take a belt sander to take it down to the bare wood in order to have a non splotchy stain application. Tips? Not happy with these products as I have applied exactly as per directions. Thanks!

            The coloring of the stripped portion of the deck now has the appearance of pressure treated wood. Some of pure redwood peeks through in many various spots, so the wood is not truly stripped down to bare wood. When stain is applied, it is very splotchy and everything is far worse than when I even started.

              What type and brand of stain is on the wood now? Did you use these additives? https://www.restore-a-deck.com/rad-stain-stripper-additives.html

                I believe there was Sikkens stain on it where I had stripped. So, what you are saying is that I need to spend an additional $40 of these products to products that have not worked? Is there a money back guarantee for all of these products I have/will purchase if it still doesn't work? I am concerned for more $ and more time equity vs literally taking a belt sander and continue to strip down to bare wood like I have had to on some of the railings.

                  Well, that makes sense. Sikkens Cetol DEK is a polyurethane type coating that is supposed to be used on log homes. The stripper does state in the above description that is is not designed to remove these type of coatings. The additives definitely will help but you may still need to sand to get this all off.

    We just power washed our deck and bought restore-a-deck cleaner and brightener. I had intended to buy the stripper but bought the cleaner by mistake. We want to stain the deck a solid grey stain.
    Do we need a stripper or will the cleaner work just as well?

      As long as you remove all the loose and peeling stain, you should be okay.

    Will this work for Flood CWF? Areas that are exposed to direct sun/rain around the edge of the porch are in bad shape. Before treating again, I want to take it down to the bare treated lumber.

      RAD Products · 05/25/2019
      That looks very thick in spots. Use the stripper with the additives and let dwell for 30-60 minutes before pressure washing off. It should remove most but you may need to sand some to get it all off.

      As long as all dirt and any peeling or loose stain is removed, you can go ahead and use the solid stain stain.

    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 05/09/2019
      You can use a pressure washer on cedar. Everyone does when using this stripper. A garden hose will not be enough pressure to remove.

    Will your stripper work on Olympic Max semi-transparent stain? Also our spindles look great. If we use your stripper and a power washer on the deck surface and top of the rails would we need to cover the spindles to prevent them from getting stripped as well?

    I have Cedar fascia, soffits, and limited amount of siding that has previously been stained and finished with Defy Extreme exterior semi-transparent cedartone wood stain finish (very disappointed in the Defy finish product). I am looking for a well rated product to strip this material and came across your product. I am considering a semi transparent cedar toned product like Valspar one coat exterior stain and sealer as the final finish product. Although your literature is geared towards decks, I assume it should work equally as well on fascias and siding. What is your recommendation for stripping, neutralizing, and refinishing my Cedar products??

      Sorry but no. You have a paint and a polyurethane on this deck. That cannot be removed by any stain stripper.

      They are not toxic but you can get some burning of the leaves if you do not cover the plants.

    Mike
    Would it be Best To Mix The Whole 2 Lb Package At Once with Warm Water
    in a 5 Gallon Container And let it sit over night to dissolve all the crystals
    So there is no waste? and If you don't use a Hand Pump Sprayer
    What is the Best Method to apply the Solution to the wood decking And letting it Soak 15 Minutes
    Before Scrubbing with a Deck Brush This is a 16 year old Pressure Treated Deck
    That Had An Oil Base Stain applied 6 years Ago And has Basically peeled off
    Due to lack of deck Preparation Before Staining Except under the Railings
    Thank you for any info
    Best Norm

      RAD Products · 08/01/2018
      It will not matter if you do it the day before nor will there be any waste. Apply with a pump sprayer and then pressure wash off for best results.

    Hi
    Do the Crystals In The Stripper And Brightener Dissolve Completely In Water?
    I Have Used A CRC Cleaner That was Crystals And They Did No Completely Dissolve
    And had A Hard Time applying it it did not work well at All
    Does your product dissolve Completely so there is not any left over undissolved crystals?

    Thanks Norm
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 08/01/2018
      For the most part, yes, but always mix in a separate 5-gallon container before transferring to a sprayer. This way it will not clog if a little bit of residue is at the bottom of the bucket.

    I dont know what kind of stain there was. Some people looked at it and said, may be there was no stain, but when I tried to pressure wash, I felt that there was stain. See attached pictures. You can also see some minor damage from pressure wash on the side railings. What do you think?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 05/14/2018
      There is stain there and to remove properly, you should use the pressure washer with the stain stripper.

    Sam · 05/14/2018
    Thanks. My concern is with pressure wash- I am a not-so-handy home owner and I feel I will damage wood by pressure washing. The label says that if you scrub and use garden hose pressure, then that may suffice. With pressure washing, there is no need to scrub. Will that work?

    I used pressure washer last year and have gone close to wood in some areas- hence my other question on sanding- if I have to sand- when do I sand- before or after stripper?

    Thanks very much

      RAD Products · 05/14/2018
      Depends on what stain brand and type of stain you are trying to remove?

      Sand if needed after the stripping but before the brightener.

    Sam · 05/13/2018
    Do I have to pressure wash after applying stripper? Can I now just scrub it with hard bristled deck cleaning brush and then just use garden hose to wash it off?

    Also, does stripper and brightener have to go back to back without any delay in between?

    Lastly, when do I use the sander to smoothen rough surfaces?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 05/14/2018
      Yes, you should pressure wash after using the stripper. Apply the brightener as soon as possible after using the stripper. No need to sand.

    I am looking at stripping my rails on my deck. The deck boards are 1 year old and not stained yet
    I know I need to use the stripper for the old semi trans stain but will stripper effect the deck boards?


    I was looking at buying the stripper and the brightener to do my project and then stain with a semi Armstrong Clark satin

      You can use the stripper for the railings. For the floors, you should use the cleaner. After doing both, brighten all wood when done.

    I have silkens "deck", will this strip it? This is NOT the srt semi, but the type finish that is a semi trans coating. almost seems like a poly tip coat.

    It will remove the penetrating Sikkens SRD. It will not remove the filming varnish type coating in most cases.

    Some parts of my deck were repaired last year and I waited until now to treat it and clean the entire deck and re-stain. Is it an issue of the Stripper gets on the newer wood?

    No issues. Make sure to use the Brightener after.
