    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.

    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.

        Thank you for the quick reply! It’s a second story deck with a small section of roofing underneath. Is there any issue with the stripper or brightener dripping onto the shingles or gutters?

      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.

      Remove the peeling stain and then you can cover the rest.

    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.

    The coverage per gallon is shown as 200-350, is the 2 coats wet on wet included in this?

      One coat for 200-350 sq feet per gallon. The solid stain is not applied wet on wet. The second coat goes on after the first coat fully dries.

    Our deck was previously coated in Deckscapes solid stain in black. We’d like to change it to a lighter color because it’s very hot on your feet midday (even here in Maine). I’m considering the RAD solid stain in coastal grey. What’s our best course of action for prepping? My husband wants to do it himself, but we’re new to deck maintenance. Thank you!

      Strip off the loose paint and then you can cover it with the RAD Solid Stain.

        Thank you. Is a pressure washer the best way to do that? The grey cover will cover the black sufficiently? Thanks very much. Looking forward to trying your product.

          RAD Products · 05/21/2020
          Use the stripper while pressure washing. You will need at least two coats to cover.

    If I sand off as much deck over stain can I apply the restore a deck stain on the bare wood after washing the deck off with water and will the new stain cover any spots of the old stain that remain in the corners? Thanks

    I have an estimated 30 year old deck. It was in rough shape so in 2017 we applied Behr deck over. It is now peeling up. I’ve pressure washed and it seems every time it gets wet, new spots of peeling occur. What steps should I take to apply new stain?

      RAD Products · 05/20/2020
      You cannot strip this product off. You will have to power sand to remove the Deckover before using any other stain.

    Looking to do a second coat of Desert Taupe. Did the first coat last June. Could not apply second coat right away, so waited a year as recommended. Have RAD cleaner and power washer. Would a deck cleaning attachment for power washer.be good to use or should I just go over with power washer? Also, there are some large knot holes on deck surface. Can I fill with PC Woody stain-able 2 part wood filler before applying stain?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 05/18/2020
      Just use the pressure washer, not the attachment. Wood filler does not work for decks so no, do not use any.

    Also, there are some areas that are still peeling, even after doing all the prep and sanding. Do I still have to work at it? Is there a danger that the top coats will peel in those areas that I couldn't remove the stain? It's a pain to keep sanding and scrapping... uggh!!!
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 05/18/2020
      Spot sand any areas that are still peeling. If you cover over any peeling stain then the new coat will be prone to peeling in those areas down the road.

    I have done the cleaning, stripping and used the brightener. Then we sanded. 1) Do I have to use the brightener again after sanding? I didn't know to finish with brightener. Also, much of the previous solid stain has not come off, even after sanding (see pics). 2) Should this be a concern for a new coat of RAD solid stain, taupe color? 3)How many coats do I apply? 4)Which application is better, dry or wet application? 5) Can the application be done in sections, because I do not have ample time to coat entirely at one application? I know to complete the board I start, but will the color be different on the next board if I can't get to it for another day or two?

      RAD Products · 05/18/2020
      You do not need to do any more prep. Just apply the solid stain. 2 coats. You can apply the first to damp or dry wood, it does not matter. The second coat goes on after the first coat dries. We would not suggest doing in sections over days of drying as you may get overlap marks.
      • We will reply to your comment shortly
        Irene Garipoli · 05/18/2020
        Thanks for the reply. Your last comment about overlapping marks, I know to finish the board I'm working on, but would that finished board look differently to the board next to it if it's done 2 days later? Also, now I'm not sure I have enough stain for 2 coats on the whole project. If I do the first coat and need to order more, will it make a difference if the 2nd coat is applied a month later?
        • We will reply to your comment shortly
          RAD Products · 05/18/2020
          No overlap and then it should all be the same color. Just make sure to keep the stain mixed well throughout the applying. It would be best to apply the second coat within a day or two of the first coat prior to full cure.

    I have a pine deck with failed semi-transparent stain. With helpful advice from RAD, I have stripped and sanded the entire deck. Is it preferable to proceed with an oil based stain (TWP) or a water based stain RAD)?

    Stained a pressure treated wood deck a few years ago with Cabot Semi Solid oil based stain. Direct sun areas are well worn. Shaded areas are still pretty good. Will the RAD stripper work on this? do I also need the additives? Or is it best just to sand. Thanks

    I have a cedar privacy fence that is currently stained a solid chocolate brown color. I am wanting to stain it with your solid white stain. After prepping I am thinking of initially applying Zinger primer to cover the brown color and then the white stain. I also want to do the same thing with the solid pressure treated pine skirting around my deck. It is the same color as the fence. I want to change my deck to a two tone white / semi - transparent. Will using Zinzer primer as an initial step work?

    I have a 500 square foot deck. I just want to make sure I'm calculating correctly, in order to do 2 coats on the deck I would need about 4 gallons of solid stain. Is that correct. I don't need it for railing.
