    Hi, I was thinking of using RAD semi-transparent stain the siding and RAD solid stain on windows/doors/trim on a small cabin. It's no problem to let the siding weather before staining but it would be a lot easier to paint the windows/doors/trim as I go. If I don't want to let those pieces weather, is there anything I can do to prep new wood to receive stain immediately? Thanks!

      Sorry but no, you cannot "speed" this up. Since it is vertical trim and you are using a solid there, I doubt you will have an issue if you do it now. The weathering is needed more for horizontal wood application.

    We used the solid stain in dessert taupe on our deck for the first time. It was very easy to apply
    we love the color! However the color is much lighter than the chart. Perfect for us, but I
    just wanted to mention that.

    Hello
    I put my order in yesterday. Today as I’m sanding the railings it occurs to me there is a chance this might be paint. How do I find out if the existing treatment is paint or solid stain? The neighbour recalls it might be stain but he’s not 100%. Here is a photo.

    Thanks

      Looks like a solid stain. Make sure all the peeling or stain that is not current adhering is removed first.

      The solid stain is not sold in 5-gallon pails, only the semi-transparent.

    If I am using solid stain on a stripped and power washed PT deck that has no peeling paint, is there any advantage to brightening or can I just apply the solid stain?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 06/14/2019
      The brightener neutralizes the stripper so the wood is not in a high caustic state.

        Amy MACINTOSH · 06/14/2019
        Sorry to keep asking questions, I really want to do this correctly. We got a lot of rain after the stripping and sanding process. In your opinion, should I use a brightener?

          Probably not going to have any effect at this point so no need.

    I will be using solid taupe on a very weathered pressure treated deck. I have stripped, sanded and brightened. What is the best application method, roller or a upright staining brush/broom. Also, should I missed the deck with water before applying? And do you recommend two coats?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 06/13/2019
      For a solid stain, use a roller. and brush. You will need two coats. Make sure the stain that is still on the wood is not peeling in any spots. You can apply to dry wood for this.

    I have an older (1995) PT deck that has peeling solid stain. I've read that the pre-2004 PT wood doesn't hold paint or solid stains well. I've tried stripping off the old stain, but some is still stuck on pretty well, and I really don't feel like investing the time and energy sanding off the rest.

    Is there any product or treatment I can use to get a solid stain to stick to this wood? It's not in the kind of shape where I want to use a semi-transparent and see the wood.

      Just prep to remove loose and peeling stain and then apply the solid stain.

          Within a few days or so. Longer and the wood could get dirty.

    Looking for advice on possible third coat of solid stain. Refinishing an 75 year old fir covered porch floor that had been completely stripped 30 years ago and finished periodically with semi-solid acrylic. I orbital sanded all loose and peeling stain and even hit the intact stain a bit to prep. Before staining I would say about 30 % of the surface was down to bare wood (old school fir very dense). After two coats i anm still seeing some spots where the bare wood did not cover as well and is visibly flatter than the surrounding floor. Maybe less that 5%. I am tempted to put a thin third coat down on the whole floor or maybe hit only these areas with a third coat. Any advice for me?

      Post a picture. Most likely okay for one more coat.

    I have 414 square feet (let’s say 450 to be safe) to stain. How many gallons of the cleaner, brightener, and stain do I need? 2 each?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 05/19/2019
      The Cleaner and Brightener are powdered concentrates that make 5-gallons of each. You will only need 1 kit. 3-4 gallons of the RAD solid stain for the 2 coats.

    I read that you recommend rollers and stain brushes to apply your solid stain. What type of rollers (material, nap length, etc) do you recommend?

      Any roller brand will work. Most are synthetic. 1/2" to 5/8" in thickness.

    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 05/16/2019
      Pressure wash with the RAD stripper to remove the dirt and any loose and peeling solid stain that is currently on there. You can then cover the remaining solid stain that is fully intact to the wood.

    I have a log cabin to stain that has cetol 23 plus natural on it right now, a solvent-based transparent stain with a satin finish. I need to use a solid stain to cover over the color that now has an orange tint. Logs are in good shape. I am planning on cleaning with a pressure washer before staining. Is there any issues with applying your product over a transparent stain and is sanding with some kind of abrasive needed to go over a satin finish?

      It should be fine as long as the current coating is not failing.

    Lee · 05/06/2019
    Hi, We recently purchased an older home with a very large deck, railing, lattice work... It's very worn down in the high traffic areas and peeling here and there. (It's been a while since it was stained, so it's thin.) The previous owners left the stain cans in the garage. They are Cabot's Acrylic Solid custom colored two-toned. (Light brown on railings and light green on the flooring.) We do not want to use the Cabot brand. The deck has been pressure washed. Can a steel brush be used to remove loose old stain and then paint over remaining old stain with Restore-A-Deck Solid brown oak Stain?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 05/07/2019
      Do not use a steel brush. It will harm the wood. Power sand to remove the loose stain and then you can apply the RAD solid stain over any Cabot stain that is intact and not peeling.

        My situation is similar to Lee. I have a covered outdoor porch floor finished several years ago with Cabot Driftwood Gray Semi-Solid Acrylic. There is some minor peeling. I want to sand as you describe to remove the loose stain and then refinish with your Coastal Gray Solid Acrylic. After the sanding and cleanup am I ready to stain or do you recommend that I use your wood cleaner product before staining? Thanks.

          RAD Products · 05/09/2019
          You can proceed to stain after the sanding. The only reason to pressure rinse is to clean off the sand dust after the sanding. Yo do not need a cleaner for this.

    The coverage info for the solid stain says 200-350sq ft per gallon, while the semi-transparent coverage says 100-150sq ft per gallon. Why would the solid stain provide approx. twice the coverage of the semi-transparent? I'm looking at re-staining my shed sided with t1-11and am deciding which product to buy.

      The Solid stain spreads much farther since it has a lot more solid content.
