    Hi, I am applying solid stain but having difficulty applying it between boards because gap is too small. Any suggestions?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 09/20/2022
      No reason to stain between gaps. If you want to get it down a little bit, then use a narrow brush.

    Hi! My prior comment seems to have disappeared. I just got my deck repaired (replaced some boards), sanded down to the wood (there was a solid paint on it) and then stained with Arborcoat in white for the railing and Cliffside Grey (very light grey) for the boards. Unfortunately, the maple tree leaves and seed pods falling on the deck have left permanent orange/brown stains within the first few days (deck was finished 9/11, stains started 9/12). I am unable to get the stains washed off. They seem to have stained the paint. Can I strip this with restore a deck stripper and apply solid restore a deck wood stain in white to the railings and grey to the floor boards? Or does this need to be sanded down to the wood again? This has been an expensive project and I am super disappointed. The deck company chose the stain, I only chose the color, and I trusted them and did not expect this result. Any advice much appreciated!

      No solid stain will be immune to leaf stains. You cannot strip a solid stain so you would have to sand it all off if you want to remove it.

        Is it possible to paint over this with a darker color without having to sand it all off again?

    I just finished my deck and stairs using the RAD Semi-Transparent Dark Walnut. I had some stubborn patches of the old stain that I couldn't easily remove on the stair risers. I don't like the final results. I'd like to use a Solid White on the risers and the facia boards, which I haven't stained yet.

    Do I need to wait until the Spring to apply the Solid White to the risers? Deck was finished 3 days ago. Thanks!

    I moved into a house where the front deck/stairs were previously either painted or solid-color stained. I'd like to apply an additional coat of finish, but I do not know what the previous product used was -- paint or solid stain. Is there a way to tell? Photos attached.

    If it's stain, would I apply stripper, then brightener, then solid stain? Thanks!

    I would like to use a Coastal Gray Solid Stain for my 30 year old deck and railing. All previous coatings were removed (sanded to bare wood). The deck is 30' x 10' and the railing is 30' x 3'. How many gallons of RAD Solid Stain would I need?

      What is the total sq footage of all wood when added up? Guessing it should be around 4-5 gallons for the two coats.

        I have re-measured it and the actual dimensions are 24' x 8' (deck) and 23' x 3' (railing). When I use this calculator I get 261 square feet in total. So, how many gallons of RAD Solid Stain would I need for two coats?

    Had a new deck built in May 2022 with pressure treated pine and the boards were sanded. The deck also gets full sun/ What deck stain should I use? TWP, Armstrong Clark, Restore -A-Deck. I would like to apply it in September. Are darker colors better?

    Years ago we made a mistake by applying Thompson’s Water Seal to our deck. Earlier this spring I stripped the whole deck and refinished the deck boards with TWP 1500 (it looks great!). I held off on the railings because I wasn’t sure what to do with them - the stripper didn’t remove the Thompson’s from all the nooks and crannies of the balusters and even sanding can’t get it all.  Can I do the RAD solid stain over the remnants of the Thompson’s, or will that cause the stain to peel? Or is it better to use more TWP 1500 on the railings because it’s oil based?

      You can use the RAD Solid stain over another stain as long as that old stain is not peeling.

    One more question from the PNW - 
    Have my stripper and brightener, paint (15 gallons!!!) will be here shortly, and wondering what to do about the rust stains that formerly bled through the Arborcoat.  I cannot remove all the rusty nails.
    1. Will they bleed through the RAD solid stain?
    2. Can I paint over them with Rustoleum?  
    3. If I can use Rustoleum, at what point in the painting process?  Before first coat, between first and second, or after second and then touch up with RAD?
    4. If I cannot use Rustoleum, what do you recommend?
    Thank you - you folks and this forum have been a huge help.

      RAD Products · 08/16/2022
      1. Yes, possibly can bleed.
      2. No and that would not stop the rust.
      3. N/A
      4. Remove/replace the rusting nails otherwise it will not ever stop.

    I have a 12 ft x 12 ft new deck that has been weathering for almost 6 months. Installed beginning of March 2022. Plan is to stain Labor Day weekend (weather pending). My question is… do you think the deck has weather long enough for the solid stain cedar color product AND since it is a new deck (no mildew or mold) do I need to buy the cleaner pre stain products?

      RAD Products · 08/16/2022
      Weathering is correct for prep and staining now. Use both the RAD Cleaner and then the Brightener for prep.

    Greetings from the PNW.  I sanded, cleaned, prepped my 30+ year old Fir/Hemlock (I think) deck 2 yrs ago and painted with Benjamin Moore’s Arborcoat.  Followed instructions, let dry thoroughly before painting.  Wood porous as it had not been treated in nearly 25-30 years, got approx 100-150 sq ft/gallon.  Tired, end of summer, decided to put second coat on next spring.  Over winter it bubbled and peeled.  RAD getting top ratings on DeckStainHelp.com.  Arborcoat - not.  I know loose product must be removed but plan to use a power washer on the 1300 sq ft deck, sanding in some spots.  Want to switch to RAD solid stain.  Question - can I use another deck cleaner (Zep deck or Universal wash) or RAD cleaner?  Thank you - I have learned a lot from all these Q& A.

      Us the RAD Stripper and pressure washing to remove all the loose solid stain that you have and then you can cover the intact stain with the RAD Solid Stain.

    I finished stripping my deck using your stripper and booster while leaving the stain on the railings as they are in good condition. I will be restraining the deck with your cypress solid stain. Can I also use this to put a top coat on the railing?  And if so, how do I prep?

      Just pressure wash to remove dirt and mildew and you can cover the intact stain with the RAD Solid Stain.

    I have a 30 year old porch deck made with pressure treated wood. It was initially stained then painted with a latex paint.  I have stripped it to bare wood with a combination of pressure washing, angle grinding with a Diamabrush and sanding. There is no stain or paint remaining.  Can I now apply RAD solid stain or do I need to any other prep work?

    Jeanette · 07/25/2022
    Our deck is covered with Sherwin-Williams solid stain and has mold/mildew black stains that we have not been able to remove with power washing, bleaching, various wood cleaners, oxalic acid, or OxiClean.  We've painted over the S-W 2 or 3 times (with S-W) to cover the staining but the mold keeps coming back. I've since learned that fungi can become encapsulated when painted over and continue to grow.

    Attached are two photos of the stains.

    What process do we need to follow to get rid of the mold (e.g. sand and strip the old stain before applying a new solid stain)? We will likely try Desert Taupe since it is the closest match to our house color.

    What maintenance routine would then be needed to keep mold/mildew at bay?

    Thanks.

      RAD Products · 07/26/2022
      You cannot strip a solid stain so if you need to remove you will have to power sand it all off. Mildew cannot be 100% prevented. If mildew grows on top of a stain then try a mild solution of bleach to kill the mildew.

      Correct steps. You can cover the old solid stain that is not peeling with the RAD Solid stain.

    I am thinking of using TWP Cedar Mulch Semi-Solid on my deck floor. But I think I would prefer the RAD for the uprights and railings.   What Restore-A-Deck solid color on the railings and uprights would coordinate well with that TWP color for a two-tone deck.  Restore-A-Deck doesn't offer enough colors.  I cannot use white or gray tones.  Would Brown Oak work well with the TWP Cedar Mulch?

    My deck is 1200 SF with no rails/balusters. The coverage is 200-350SF/Gallon. Is that for one coat or two coats application? i.e. should I need 4 gallons total or 8 gallons (assuming 300SF coverage/gallon/coat)?
