    We just purchased our house last year and the deck was so dark that we could not even see any wood grain. I prepped and stained my deck with the 3 step process and was able to stain the same day with the light walnut stain. The one photo shows cleaned deck in the right, the left side is not done.   Amazing results.

    Our deck is 20 years old, 2 levels and 700 square feet. It had previously been stained with Sikkens polyurethane stain in 2010. Looked good a couple years and then turned black. Finally got the energy (hint: relentless wife nagging) and I tackled sanding the entire deck which took a couple weeks. Needless to say, it was an absolute nightmare to remove that hardened Sikkens mess down to bare wood. Actually nightmare is an understatement, I was actually "SIKKEND" HA!
    I chose the RAD solid stain: Brown Oak and applied 2 coats (7 gallons). What a great product! the color is perfect just like advertised and different in sun versus shade as you can see from my photos. The application is easy, foolproof and very good quality. Plus the packaging is a big plus with the plastic jugs versus old timey paint cans, its easy to shake, dispense and store and clean up. Best of all, wife's happy and no more nagging. Thanks RAD!

    Deck was is 3 years old.  Previously used a product purchased from one of the box stores, after 3 years with 2 coats applied when painted the stain showed a lot of wear.   For this project I used the Restore A Deck stripper, Brightener and Semi Cedar.  Pictures below will show all steps.1st picture is deck Prior to any product used.2nd picture is after the stripper and a light power wash, no scrubbing.

    We have a barn built in the 1960s. It needs completely retained to preserve the beautiful wood of the barn. It is one of the only natural wood barns left in our area. It would be a blessing to win. We have read that you have the best rated stain around. Thank you
