    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.

      Keep a wet edge and do the entire board length as you dip your pad or brush into the stain tray. Moving quickly you should be fine.

    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 https://www.restore-a-deck.com/restore-a-deck-wood-stain/restore-a-deck-wood-staining-brush/flypage.tpl.html
    - Pole to attach to wood staining brush
    - Wooster Bravo Stainer 4" brush for spindles and seating area (https://www.amazon.com/Wooster-Brush-F5116-4-Stainer-4-Inch/dp/B002YCA70A)
    - 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
