    Hi! Would a 3/8” nap roller cover be appropriate for applying solid color stain? Thanks!

    I have an almost 20 year old deck that was stained about 3 years ago with a semi transparent stain. I used the stripper, then sanded some of what was left, then applied the brightener, then applied a coat of the semi transparent RAD in dark walnut. The rails look pretty good but the floor was probably just too chewed up to go with a semi-transparent plus I had some clouding probably from hot sun drying issues (in spite of spraying the deck down about 10 minutes before application and it being 10:30 in the morning!) Anyway, I'm considering just leaving the rails as they are but applying a solid stain to the floor. Can I apply the RAD solid over the RAD semi-transparent? What prep would I need to do before applying?

      You can, just give it a good pressure wash first. Only apply to a dry deck this way.

    So we have a boat dock where the deck is about 5 years old and has been treated with a semi transparent oil based stain.
    Can your product be used on top of this existing stain?

      No, you always have to remove the previous coatings when switching brands of stain. Post some pictures for help with this.

    Thanks for the quick response! I have pressure treated wood (approx 15 years old) and most of it is bare, but the railings still have a lot of the previous stain (i.e. they haven't peeled at all). I was planning on running a sander over the entire surface just to get off any debris and then wipe off with a mop/damp cloth. Will this be sufficient if I want to apply a solid stain or should I be doing something else? Also, how long does it take to ship to Manitoba, Canada?

      Pressure ash first and then sand is the best away. Shipping is about 1-2 weeks during this time.

    Do you have any photos of a completed project with the Brown Oak and Espresso solid stains? I am trying to decide on the color and I can't decide if the Espresso solid stain will be too dark. Thank you!

    Wood deck, about a decade old, previous owners used a solid stain of unknown type/mfgr. We've obtained solid stain RAD samples and applied to test areas. Appears we will need 2 coats after stripping/cleaning/power washing. Previous Q&A's have left a confusing message. Can RAD solid stain be applied in two coats? One answer says the first coat will prevent any other applications. If a 2nd coat is possible, how much wait between coats?

      RAD Products · 06/27/2020
      You need two coats for the RAD solid stain and the first coat must dry before applying the second coat with the Solid Stain.

    We have approximately 322 sq. ft. to cover. using the two coat method with your solid stain, how many gallons would you recommend for the job---don't want to run out before completion? Also what is your shipment times to get to Southeast Mi. ?

    Terry · 06/23/2020
    We live in Southeast MI. We get rain, snow, and ice. How well does your solid stain hold up to these conditions? I am mostly concerned with chipping. How much better is it compared to the Behr brand solid stain when talking durability/chipping?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 06/23/2020
      The RAD solid stain when prepped correctly will work very well for MI. As for the Behr, they have numerous reports and reviews of failures. Almost any stain is better.

      Tannin bleed from the wood due to moisture. Best to apply another coat later in the Summer when things dry out.

    Hi,


    I finished staining our deck Friday, and am prepping to stain the posts today. Just wanted to confirm tha the RAD cleaner and brightener is safe if it comes in contact with a freshly stained deck boards (60 hrs).

    Thanks.

      It should be prewet and rinse any overspray right away.

    Due to expected shipping delays, if I strip and prep now and have to wait a few weeks is this an issue? Or should I wait to strip and prep?

      Best to prep closer to when you will be staining.

    Covered porch wood is 5-6 years old and stained by previous owner (not sure what kind of stain). If I was going to change to a white solid stain on the fascia and a grey coastal solid stain on the porch boards what prep would you recommend? Thanks!

    What would be the best way to apply a solid stain? Looking to redo a 1200 square ft deck with the solid Cyprus color. Power washed it, used deck cleaner and sanded. Now the final step.

    Kimberly · 06/04/2020
    Hello, I have a two level deck and believe it’s about 800sq ft all together. So I’m guessing about 9 gallons. I also want to do the railings, anyway to figure out how much I need for that part? Thinking of doing the floor in cypress and the railings in white to give it an updated look. It’s about 15+ years old and we have been replacing a lot of boards the past year and still more to replace before we do the stain.

    Hi! We are preparing to stain our decks and a porch. One deck was stained maybe 15 years ago with Olympic semi-transparent stain. We pressure washed the deck last month and there’s still some stain on it. We will be staining everything with RAD Solid stain in brown oak for the floors. The porch was stained around the same time with Valspar semi-transparent stain (a dark custom color). We have done no prep work to the porch yet. I’ll be getting the cleaner and brightener for the prep work. My question: do I need to strip the old stain as the first step, or just remove any loose old stain by pressure washing? The deck doesn’t seem to be peeling, but the porch is a bit flaky in places. If I do have to strip one or both, do I follow with just the brightener after? Any other advice you have would be welcome! Thanks in advance.

      Just remove the loose stain and clean/brighten up the deck and you will be okay to use the RAD Solid Stains.

        Oh I’m so glad I don’t have to strip all of the old finish off. Thank you! Do you ever get tired of answering all of these questions? :) While I don’t really expect an answer to that, I want to say it’s nice to have such a knowledgeable professional to help all us DIYers. Thanks again.

    My deck has some sort of peeling solid stain on it (photo included). If I understand correctly, the best process to restain is:

    1) Use a stripper and remove with a pressure washer.
    2) Let dry and sand the remaining loose, peeling areas of old stain.
    3) Apply the brightener.
    4) Apply solid stain.

    I plan to apply the stain with a brush. How should the stripper and brightener be applied? Thanks!

      Steps are correct. Apply with brush and roller for stain. Pump sprayer for prep products.

        sorry but your information is not consistent at all. I sent in the same photos of my deck, solid, peeling and you said to just strip and apply solid, no brightener. And then in another you said stripper will not work on solids. Please clarify.
        • We will reply to your comment shortly
          RAD Products · 06/03/2020
          Yes, the info is consistent. When reapplying a solid stain you strip off as much as you can prior to reapplying a new solid stain (covering the intact stain that does not strip) but no, it will not fully remove all of the current solid stain down to the bare wood so you can switch to a semi-transparent stain.

      Every 2-3 years. Celan and reapply to floors. Railings will last longer.

    I need to replace a couple of the lattice strips on my lower deck. I plan to stain all the lattice espresso. Is there anything I should do to this new pine lattice piece before staining? Not planning on waiting for it to age, just want to know if there is anything I should do to it. Thanks!

    Steve Franklin · 05/25/2020
    Hello,
    For the floor only on our screened-in front porch, around 20 years old. Nothing has ever been done to the porch & it has some stain on it naturally. We pressure washed it & some of the stain remains. Will the semi-transparent stain in either taupe or gray cover the stains? Do you think we need to do any other cleaning since it has been pressure washed? Only a few small areas show stain. Thanks for our help.

      The solid stain will cover the cold stain, not the semi-transparent.

    Looks like the previous message didn’t load.
    it’s almost one year later - applies two coats. A few boards have a bit of peeling. My husband thinks there were a few new boards. Also it was extremely hot in full sun when I did that section.
