    Why do these brown spots appear?

      That is not from the stain but looks like dirt running down the sides maybe from rain.

    Has anyone tried RAD with a paint sprayer?  I was going to use a sprayer on the spindles.

      The RAD Solid stain will work with an airless sprayer.

    I currently have Pewter gray Behr solid color stain on my deck. I would like to use your product using two colors. White for the railings and coastal gray for the deck. Will the white solid stain cover the pewter gray on the railings?

      Yes, but you will need at least 2 coats, maybe 3.

    Hi, looking for some more photos of completed decks in the solid stains: cypress and brown oak so we can choose which would look best.Also, what would you recommend to remove old polyurethane coating/residue on deck.

    I completed my deck restoration last year using RAD products and RAD solid stain. It came out great! The deck held up well through the first year, without any peeling or chipping. I intend to apply a single maintenance coat of RAD solid stain this spring.
    1)    Do I need to power wash the deck before application, or is a solid rinse with a hose sufficient?
    2)    Is there any other preparation steps needed?
    3)    What is the minimum temperature you recommend for application and drying? The product label says 45 – 95 degrees, but is 45 truly acceptable, or is it safer to stay at a higher temperature?
    Thanks!

      -Light pressure wash-Use the cleaner if you have any dirt or mildew-Temps are correct. No issues at 45.

    Hi,How many gallons for a 12x16 deck + railing? Also, can your solid stains be adjusted to a color of liking if I use mixol tints?
    Thanks

      4-5 gallons for two coats. We would not suggest custom tinting.

        Okay. What is the best way to apply it, roll and brush or can I just brush it with a good latex brush? Does it cover a pre-existing water base stain? I just sanded most of the deck, will go over it again with an 80grit — do I need the brighten step or can I just apply it directly without that step since the board will be sanded and cleaned well? 
        • We will reply to your comment shortly
          RAD Products · 03/28/2021
          Roll and brush. It will cover old stains. No need to brighten in your scenario.

            What is the optimal time for applying the second coat? Would you start with railing first and then do the deck boards? Also, do you suggest an outdoor rug to preserve the color better or would that do more damage? 
            Thank you for your help!

              When applying the solid stain, best to apply the second coat as soon as the first coat is dry. Rugs work well and look nice.

                Hi,So I just stained 99% of my deck. It looks great! I bought 5 gallons because you suggested 4-5, however, I only used 2 gallons for two coats. Can I return at least two gallons? Thanks!

    I read some reviews of your stains and am interested in trying one. I had already power washed, stripped, sanded, and brightened my 30 year old deck before I learned about your products. When the deck is dry the it’s hard to see any of the solid stain that was on it remaining on the wood. When wet, you can see the old stain becomes visible in many of the little cracks (I attached some photos showing the contrast). It is incredible hard to get the remaining stain out.
    My question is, do I have to use a solid stain to cover the flaws, or would a semi-transparent tint the bits of stain left in the cracks and even out the appearance? I like the look of the semi-transparent, but I realize the wood is very old and may need to be coated with the solid.
    Thanks,
    Julie

      You would have to use a solid stain to cover the solid stain that you are unable to remove.

    New deck; weathered for six months. Cleaned and brightened the wood. Applied first coat of solid color stain and approximately three hours later applied second coat. As I was finishing second coat we got a very brief but heavy unexpected rain shower. Rain washed stain off some areas and others have chalky residue that looks like it will brush off. Is it OK to apply another coat after the deck has dried? We are now expecting rain for a few more days.

    I have an old weather deck. I have already cleaned and powerwashed on my own and repaired cracks. I am not going to sand. Would I be able to move straight to restore a deck solid stain without using any of your other products with no application troubles?

    I see that solid stain can be applied to new wood if it is rough wood. Does this hold true for resawn wood as well (still rough, but not as coarse as rough).

    I have a fairly wethered 1000 sqft deck. How many gallons of solid stain would you reccomend? (Filling in cracks etc).


    also I had to replace some rotted boards - will the new pressure treated pine boards take the stain well enough?

    From a chemical/bonding standpoint, can I mix two colors of RAD solid stain (coastal gray and white 50/50) . I would take full responsibility for the color and gracefully listen to any ensuing lecture. I have the stripper/cleaner and have applied a sample of the coastal gray and it is too dark. I'd still like to use the RAD over any of my other stain options.
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 09/14/2020
      Yes, you can mix the two colors together.

        Got the samples of coastal gray and classic white fast. Thanks! Took far less white than I thought to brighten up the coastal gray. Stained my replacement board from this spring so it's a nice big sample to look at. 10% to 15% white got an enthusiastic thumbs-up from both of us. That's about a pint of white to a gallon of gray. Pondering what to do with the rest of the white if I order in gallons...

    Are there full instructions for solid stain? We bought cleaner & brightener & solid stain. Do we need to pressure wash? If yes, at what point in the process? Can we apply the solid stain to a wet (damp) deck? Thanks!

    We live on the central Oregon coast. We want to refinish our previously stained deck which is five year old redwood. We are considering your solid stain. We have two concerns, durability and traction, traction being the most concerning. The transparent stain we originally used was extremely slippery when wet. The deck is always wet in the morning due to condensation during the night. . Do you have any complaints re: your solid stains concerning traction issues?

    If the wood on my deck is fairly wethered and has cracks, can i fill them with caulking or wood putty before staining with RAD? if so do i do this before or after stripping and brightening?

    Thanks

      Wood filler does not work well with exterior decks and stains. Best to just leave as is.

    Rus · 08/29/2020
    Hi. I have a deck with a sealant from another brand. I pressure washed it and used the RAD stripper and brightener, but I still can see some of the old product on some areas. If I use this solid stain, will it go well on those areas that I just mentioned? Also, do you sell this product on 5gal buckets? I'm going to need around 15 gal for my project.

      You can cover it with the solid stain. Only comes in 1-gallons.

    David L · 08/25/2020
    Can your solid color be used on the original vintage Trex non-encapsulated 20 year old gray deck? It's blend of wood fibers & plastics and has a very slight texture that we'd like to retain and my understanding is solids skim over the surface and create film rather than soaking

    Same question for semi-transparent? With the idea of getting a richer color without going to solid, how many coats of semi can be applied before it affects durability?

    Thank you!

      Sorry but our products have not been tested for older composites decks. In theory, they would both work but there have not been any tests with them.

    I have a 14 yr old 42'x12' treated pine deck that has had some boards replaced (8). There are stairs as well. It has been washed, brightened and soon to be sanded. Would you suggest the semi-transparent or the solid stain? I'm guessing the solid as it covers up the wood more than the semi-transparent. Would 5 gallons be enough? See attached image.
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 08/25/2020
      Yes, you can use the solid stain for this. 5 gallons should be okay for the two coats.

      For the solid stain, wait about 1-3 hours for the first coat to dry. The second coat should go on the same day.

      As soon as possible is best or you will have to clean again.
