Restore A Deck Semi-Transparent Wood Stain Application Tips
How much stain will I need to do a deck that is 854 square feet?
For two coats, about 7-9 gallons.
I am staining a pressure-treated pine screened porch, that has been weathering for 6 months, with semi-transparent. Cleaner and brightener will be applied with pump sprayer and pressure-washer to rinse. Can I also apply the stain with pump sprayer? Seems like this would be easiest way to get the vertical posts/railings done, maybe floorboards, too? Then use a brush to apply it near the edges where it will be taped off to protect adjacent vinyl siding and painted wood ceiling?
You can spray the stain but you will have to back brush it to ensure it is applied evenly.
I just stained my deck why is water beading on my deck now
Hi, I just installed 450 Sq.F brand new cedar deck. Will a 2.5 G container be sufficient for the initial coverage ? If I buy more stain, will the left-over stain dry up in 12-18 months before the next maintenance coat ? Do I need to stir the stain when I use it after that 12-28 months ?

You will need about 3-4 gallons for the first initial coat after the wait and prep. The shelf life of an opened container if stored correctly will be about 12 months.
Hi, I had “help” with staining and have noticed that some areas were covered more thinly than others. Do I just have to wait until I do the deck again, or is there something I can do now to spot coat more evenly?
Do not do anything right now. You can lightly recoat in the Spring.
Thanks! When I do the recoat, do I clean and brighten again or just clean? Everything or just the areas that were not coated as heavily?
Just clean. You would have to clean and recoat all.
Would the natural stain be a good choice for Sustain Preserved Wood product’s pressure treated boards with micronized copper azole compounds? The boards have a cedar colored coating.
Hello, you can not apply RAD Stain over a different coating. The cedar colored coatings would need to be removed first.
