We are pleased to announce two new additives for the Top-Selling and Top-Rated Restore-A-Deck Stain Stripper!

These products work as additives for the Restore-A-Deck Stain Stripper and are not effective as standalone products. They work to help remove difficult to remove coating brands such as:

  • Behr Semi-Transparent Acrylic (water-based) Stain
  • Thompson Semi-Transparent Acrylic (water-based) Stain
  • Super Deck Semi-Transparent Acrylic (water-based) Stain
  • Most other Semi-Transparent and Semi-Solid Stains

Note: For best results, use the Restore-A-Deck Stain Stripper Booster Additive in conjunction with Restore-A-Deck Thickening Gel.

Restore-A-Deck Stripper BoosterRestore-A-Deck Stain Stripper Booster - Up to 300% More Effective

Restore-A-Deck Stain Stripper Booster Additive is a special blend of solvents that is added to premixed 5-Gallons of the Restore-A-Deck Stain Stripper. The Restore-A-Deck Stripper Booster will raise the effectiveness of the stain stripping up to 300% by helping to break down the surface tension of difficult to remove wood stain finishes.

This product works as a Booster additive for the Restore-A-Deck Stain Stripper. For even better results, use the Restore-A-Deck Stain Stripper Thickening Gel in conjunction with the Restore-A-Deck Stripper Booster. The Thickening Gel adds the ability to cling to vertical and horizontal surfaces for up to 1 hour.

Restore-A-Deck Booster should be used to increase effectiveness in stripping difficult to remove wood and deck stain coatings. Stripper Booster improves effectiveness on removal for most exterior wood and deck finishes including:

  • Acrylic-based wood and deck coatings
  • Oil-based wood and deck coatings
  • Clear wood and deck sealers
  • Transparent wood and deck stains
  • Semi-transparent wood and deck stains
  • Semi-solid exterior wood and deck stains

Restore-A-Deck Stripper Thickening GelRestore-A-Deck Stripper Thickening Gel Additive - Clings up to 1 Hour

Restore-A-Deck Stain Stripper Thickening Gel is a special blend that is added to premixed 5-Gallons of the Restore-A-Deck Stain Stripper. With a longer dwell time, Restore-A-Deck Stripper Thickening Gel will raise the effectiveness of the stain stripping by adding the ability to cling to vertical and horizontal surfaces for up to 1 hour. Works especially well on improving the performance of the stripping on vertical wood such as wood railings, wood fences, and wood sided homes.

Restore-A-Deck Thickening Gel should be used to increased effectiveness in stripping difficult to remove wood and deck stain coatings. RAD Stripper Thickening Gel improves effectiveness on removal for most exterior wood and deck finishes including:

  • Increased effectiveness for vertical surfaces such as railings, wood siding, log homes, and wood fences
  • Longer dwell time for horizontal and decking surfaces
  • Clings to wood for up to 1 hour

    We plan to use the RAD Stain Stripper Booster and the RAD Thickening Gel to remove failed Behr Semi-Transparent Stain. Can we mix all the products only in the amount that we expect will be needed for our 300 square foot deck and store the remaining portions of dry stripper powder and unmixed booster and thickening gel for future use? What are the shelf lives of the unmixed products?

      Yes, you can do this. Unmixed and stored correctly, they should last a couple of years.

      A quality pump sprayer with a fan nozzle and it will work.

    Hello! My question is on whatprep products and techniques to use if I am going to switch to your brand in the solid formula? The deck has had several Wolman products applied in the past, but not sure if semi transparent or solid. Does it make a difference in how I prep if it was one versus the other, given that I am going to be applying the RAD Solid?

      Pressure wash with the RAD Deck Cleaner to remove the dirt and grime. Make sure any of the previous stain that is failing and peeling is removed as well.

    P.S. My remaining (unstained) cedar posts are about same color as untreated railings and I am really hoping to keep the same natural color when I do stain.

    I have a new (6 mos) mixed-wood deck: railing is pine, posts are cedar. Last week I applied Sikkens/PPG ProLuxe Cetol SRD, 1-coat, transparent matte stain in Bitternut color. Says it's high-solids alkyd-oil formula. It came out MUCH darker than expected and with spotty sheen, so I'm thinking my handyman over applied the stain in multiple coats. Sunny & hot TX weather, but under 90 since. Will your stripper remove such a new, heavily applied stain? Only a portion of the deck was done, and now I'm totally stuck! Thanks.

      It is harder to remove a newly applied stain. Strip off what you can, use the additives as well. Sand the rest if needed.

    I already have a deck brightener (different brand) to restore PH balance. Can I use that, or is there something proprietary in your deck brightener and therefore must be used with your stripper?

      Best to use the RAD brightener as they are not all made the same.

    I have an 20 yr old deck with several coats of Olympic Solid Stain on it. I have tried several other stripper products with partial success. Will your product stripper with the added booster and thickening gel be effective at removing solid color deck stain?

      No, sorry but no deck stain stripper will effectively remove a solid stain. While the RAD may get most off, you will still need to power sand some point to remove all.

    Can RAD Stripper be applied in warm, sunny conditions?
