    We used the stripper with booster and then brightened last night. This morning the deck is very “fuzzy”. Should we let it dry and try to brush it off or do you think we will need to sand and then brighten again before staining?

      You can stain over this but if you want, lightly sanding or buffing it off is okay

    Hey i have a 20 by 20 deck, how much stripper bags do i need? And how many gallons of stain ?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 05/25/2020
      One stripper and about 4 gallons for 400 sq feet. If you have railings and stairs you will need more stain.

    is it bad to leave the bare wood stripped and not brightened or sanded for like 5 days when it’s going to rain and then get a little sunny? It’s only because i didn’t anticipate the stripping process to take so long and i have half the railings stripped

    Hey is this what a stripped spindle is supposed to look like before sanding, I just want to make sure i’m not damaging the wood with the pressure washer.

    Hey I did not anticipate the stripping process would take so much time per section of the deck, should I apply brightener to that section and then continue stripping on other parts of the deck?

    Hey when applying the brightener can I apply the entire deck at one time?

    Hey I have mixed my stripper mix with water and have added the additive together with it in a 5 Gallon bucket, I am wondering if I can leave the mix for tomorrow in the bucket? Or does it lose its potency somehow by not using it right when it’s mixed?

    Isaac · 05/18/2020
    Can you tell if this is a solid stain? I’m planning on stripping it (twice if needed) and then sanding it. If this is a solid stain can I apply a semi-transparent after?

    Isaac · 05/11/2020
    Hi I have a few questions. 1. I don’t know what stain was previously used on this deck, by the looks of the picture do you think the stripper with an additive as well as sanding will remove whatever it is? 2. How soon after stripping and sanding do I have to use brightener? Can i wait a day in between?

      RAD Products · 05/11/2020
      Strip with both additves and then sand if needed to remove the rest. Brighten all when done. Next day is okay.

    Hello, I have a 10Y old screened-in deck. I replaced some vertical framing like pillars, pickets, and railing and indicate in the photos attached. I am planing to solid stain the vertical framing and stain the floor with a different semi-transparent color more to brown tones. The existing stain is 717 Redwook, oil based. Could you suggest the products for this project? In case vertical framing could be stripped, we may use same semi-transparent stain there. I also have screen underneath of the deck floor, will any of the product chemicals damage that? Thanks ?

      Not sure if the flooring can be stripped or not? What brand and type of stain? You may need to do a solid to the floors as well if it cannot be stripped. The screens will need to come off when doing the prep and stain work.

        Leo · 05/10/2020
        Thanks for your reply. I am not sure if everything could be stripped without damaging the fiberglass screen underneath of the floor which is the only one that is not removable. So, will any of the product chemical damage the screen? I think that’s the key point for the project to chose the product (stripper, cleaner, brighter) accordingly. In case all product may damage the screen I guess the only solution will be sanding the deck. Thanks

          RAD Products · 05/10/2020
          It should not damage the screen but you will have lots of old stain and gunk that will wash between boards and clog up the screen below. That could cause damage.

      You can still prep and stain it. Try using some screws to tighten it down.

    Hello, we used the cedar semi transparent rad stain last fall on a cedar deck/porch. I am not liking the color at all. If we use the stripper can we then stain with the rad cottage grey?
    Thanks,

    My deck is 20 x 14 and has close to 100 spindles plus 6 steps. It is going to take me awhile to clean or strip then brighten this deck. How soon after cleaning and brightening do I have to stain?

    I used the cleaner, then stripper on a 4 year old redwood deck. However, after powerwashing and then applying brightener, the wood is now dark and it either product has not taken it down to the bare wood. When attempting to repeat these steps, it has done nothing. I have had to take a belt sander to take it down to the bare wood in order to have a non splotchy stain application. Tips? Not happy with these products as I have applied exactly as per directions. Thanks!

            The coloring of the stripped portion of the deck now has the appearance of pressure treated wood. Some of pure redwood peeks through in many various spots, so the wood is not truly stripped down to bare wood. When stain is applied, it is very splotchy and everything is far worse than when I even started.

                I believe there was Sikkens stain on it where I had stripped. So, what you are saying is that I need to spend an additional $40 of these products to products that have not worked? Is there a money back guarantee for all of these products I have/will purchase if it still doesn't work? I am concerned for more $ and more time equity vs literally taking a belt sander and continue to strip down to bare wood like I have had to on some of the railings.

                  RAD Products · 06/16/2019
                  Well, that makes sense. Sikkens Cetol DEK is a polyurethane type coating that is supposed to be used on log homes. The stripper does state in the above description that is is not designed to remove these type of coatings. The additives definitely will help but you may still need to sand to get this all off.

    We just power washed our deck and bought restore-a-deck cleaner and brightener. I had intended to buy the stripper but bought the cleaner by mistake. We want to stain the deck a solid grey stain.
    Do we need a stripper or will the cleaner work just as well?

      As long as you remove all the loose and peeling stain, you should be okay.

    Will this work for Flood CWF? Areas that are exposed to direct sun/rain around the edge of the porch are in bad shape. Before treating again, I want to take it down to the bare treated lumber.

      RAD Products · 05/25/2019
      That looks very thick in spots. Use the stripper with the additives and let dwell for 30-60 minutes before pressure washing off. It should remove most but you may need to sand some to get it all off.

      Nothing will strip off the Behr Deckover. You will have to sand it to remove fully.

      As long as all dirt and any peeling or loose stain is removed, you can go ahead and use the solid stain stain.

      You can use a pressure washer on cedar. Everyone does when using this stripper. A garden hose will not be enough pressure to remove.

    Will your stripper work on Olympic Max semi-transparent stain? Also our spindles look great. If we use your stripper and a power washer on the deck surface and top of the rails would we need to cover the spindles to prevent them from getting stripped as well?

    I have Cedar fascia, soffits, and limited amount of siding that has previously been stained and finished with Defy Extreme exterior semi-transparent cedartone wood stain finish (very disappointed in the Defy finish product). I am looking for a well rated product to strip this material and came across your product. I am considering a semi transparent cedar toned product like Valspar one coat exterior stain and sealer as the final finish product. Although your literature is geared towards decks, I assume it should work equally as well on fascias and siding. What is your recommendation for stripping, neutralizing, and refinishing my Cedar products??

    Mike
    Would it be Best To Mix The Whole 2 Lb Package At Once with Warm Water
    in a 5 Gallon Container And let it sit over night to dissolve all the crystals
    So there is no waste? and If you don't use a Hand Pump Sprayer
    What is the Best Method to apply the Solution to the wood decking And letting it Soak 15 Minutes
    Before Scrubbing with a Deck Brush This is a 16 year old Pressure Treated Deck
    That Had An Oil Base Stain applied 6 years Ago And has Basically peeled off
    Due to lack of deck Preparation Before Staining Except under the Railings
    Thank you for any info

      It will not matter if you do it the day before nor will there be any waste. Apply with a pump sprayer and then pressure wash off for best results.
