I have a very long deck and I’m planning my best procedure. How do I stain without getting the stopping and starting marks? I’m assuming I’ll have to stop to pick up more stain as I go along because the length is so long I won’t be able to do it in one long sweep.

Used the 3-step process for my deck. Turned out awesome!

Step 1 Deck Cleaner
Step 2 Brightener
Step 3 RAD Stain in Cedar

This was a 10+ year-old dock, never been stained.

I did the deck in one day. Over 500SF, plus spindles and a seating area. All-in, I’d guess 600+ SF of area. I started in the morning, around 9am. Finished stripping & brightening by 12-12:30pm. Began staining at 3:30pm, finished staining around 7:30pm. Long day.

I used:
– RAD Stripper, brightener, stain
– Wood staining brush
– Pole to attach to wood staining brush
– Wooster Bravo Stainer 4″ brush for spindles and seating area (
– small plastic bucket for stain and 4″ brush
– plastic paint tray for dipping wood staining brush into stain
– a 2 gallon hand pump sprayer for stripper & brightener
– a plastic bucket and funnel (mixed stripper & brightener in the bucket, stirred, and then poured via funnel into the hand pump sprayer to avoid clogged lines in hand pump sprayer)
– power washer to a) initially loosen & remove chunks of dirt prior to applying stripper, and b) to remove/rinse off stipper & brightener
