    Hi, how long can I wait between 1st and second coats? I got the first coat done this morning, but it’s heating up and I don’t think I’ll have time to put on the second coat before next weekend (6 days).

    thanks!

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

    Can solid stain be applied to a damp deck or does it have to be completely dry?
    Jug says dry, web page says damp.

      It can be applied to damp or dry wood for the first coat. The second coat can only be applied after the first coat dries.

    Is 3/4'' nap roller good to use for RAD solid stains? If not, is 1/2'' nap rollers Ok to use? Does nap size affect performance or usage (if they are good to use on rough surfaces)?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 07/28/2020
      1/2" to 5/8" is better. Nap size does not affect performance.

    Mayday! Mayday! We weren’t supposed to get any rain today, but as I was rolling the second coat of solid stain a bit of rain fell. Just sprinkles, but the stain was still wet (of course) and I have polka dots. Should it dry okay or will I need to roll a very light coat over it tomorrow? I have no idea what to do. I hope you have some sage advice...

      If it looks good after it dries then no need to do another coat.

    Old deck stained once with Cabot acrylic solid stain. All loose stain has been removed, still some stain adhereing to bear wood. Brushed and power washed, what other prep work needs done?

      You should be okay to cover with the RAD solid stain as long as all peeling and loose stain has been removed.

    Solid stain application. I have a deck with two sections of size 14ft x 14 ft and 8 ft x 8 ft floor sizes. There are about 130 spindles, and about 15 steps in total each 4 ft in width, and 20 posts. I have a few questions related to deck staining.

    1. I plan on dual-tone staining: For the floor how many gallons do I need, assuming 2 coats are needed? My rough calculation is something like 350 sq ft. (including the side of the board and steps)
    2. For the railings/spindles, how many gallons do I need, assuming 2 coats are needed? A rough estimate of about 360 sq ft. (including the 4 sides and height for each of the spindles and posts)
    3. Can I use the Shur-line Deck applicator pad for RAD solid stains?
    4. What size rollers should be used for solid stains?
    5. I am moving from semi-transparent (different brand) to RAD solid stain. I already got the stripper and brightener. Is this the correct order? Stripper, sand where the wood fibers show with 80 grit paper lightly, brightener, solid stain on railings first, then a different color solid stain on deck floor?
    6. Can stripper and brightener be done on one day, and solid stain on a different day (a week later)?
    7. Do I need to wet the deck before doing solid stain, if staining on a different day than brightener?
    8. I saw that the second coat should be done about 3 hours or so from the first coat. If I need extra paint to do my second coat, I may have to wait to get that shipped, which may be a week or two. In that case, would it be alright to put the second coat 2 weeks later? If it rains during this time, is that an issue?
    9. After staining, how long for solid stain to dry (before the rain)?

    I know it is a lot of questions, but I appreciate your expert advice and hope will help me with my first-time deck staining.

      1. 3-4 gallons for two coats and 350 sq feet.
      2. 3-4 gallons for two coats and 360 sq feet.
      3. No, you need brushed and rollers for solid stains.
      4. 5/8" nap.
      5. Correct.
      6. Yes.
      7. Wet or dry os fine. It does not need to be damp.
      8. Yes, that is fine. Rain should not have an issue. Much easier to do all the same day though.
      9. 2-6 hours.

    Can I apply solid stain to cedar?
  • We will reply to your comment shortly
    Wilhelm Cody · 07/14/2020
    Our house in the area East of San Francisco bay has cedar shingles applied about 25 years ago. They were stained with Super Deck oil based transparent/semi transparent mix of a white with some cedar. No other staining or treatment since then, other than weather. Some areas have no stain left, from sun and rain, while others in partially protected areas have much color (an off white/light beige) that still adheres to the wood. Using your cleaner and rinsing without brushing the shingles removes most but not all of the color. Protected areas are especially resistant.

    We want to get something uniform again. The formulation of Super Deck is long gone. No good semi-transparent stains seem to have white and grey is just too dark for the house. To get a more uniform coating, our painter suggested a semi solid that will show the texture of the shingles. You have only a solid stain but it may be worth thinking about it as an option.

    I have several questions about your solid stain.
    -Will your solid stain smooth over the texture much more than a semi-solid from other brands?
    -Will blending some white with some other color of your stain of be acceptable to get a mid tone of some sort or will that reduce the performance?
    -Is the cleaning/brightening process necessary or would cleaning alone followed by washing (perhaps a low pressure washing under 750 PSI) be acceptable for a solid stain?
    -Most important will this peel after a few years?

    thank you for any information you can provide.

      RAD Products · 07/14/2020
      -Yes, the solid stain is filming so it will have a smoother appearance than a penetrating stain.
      -You can mix colors of the RAD Solid Stains.
      -Pressure washing to remove dirt, grime, mold, etc is what is needed to prep for the solid stain. Using the RAD Prep products aids with the pressure washing for better performance.
      -Solid stains since they dry on top of the wood can eventually have some lifting. This would depend o your weather and or wood surface. Rarely happens on vertical wood but it could. Should last on vertical wood 3-7 years before a reapplication is needed.

    I see different coverage rates for stains in different places. The calculator shows a different rate than a brochure etc..... How much solid stain should buy for 2 coats of 380 sq ft? 3 or 4?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 07/12/2020
      3-4 gallons is correct. Hard to say exactly as the coverage will vary based on wood porosity and how you apply it.

    Last summer we used the cleaner + brightened + solid stain on our 400 SF deck. We live next to a river so your product seemed perfect for our location. This month, about a year later, I notice there are some mildew or mold patches that have started grow over the stain. What do you recommend we do to remove these? Any way to prevent them from coming back?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 07/11/2020
      That is mold and algae growing on top of a stain. A stain cannot prevent this but there are mild cleaners on the market that will not harm the stain. One is called "wet and forget".

    Christine · 07/06/2020
    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?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 07/06/2020
      You can, just give it a good pressure wash first. Only apply to a dry deck this way.

    Randy · 07/06/2020
    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?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 07/06/2020
      No, you always have to remove the previous coatings when switching brands of stain. Post some pictures for help with this.

    Joey · 07/03/2020
    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?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly

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

    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?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      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.
