    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.

    Is it possible to get good results with a HVLP spray gun to apply this stain?

    My deck has Valspar solid stain on it. Do I need to remove the stain or can I apply RAD solid stain over it?

      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.

    Can your solid stain be applied over a 5 year old solid color oil based stain if it still has good bond and most of it is worn off

    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

    Darn auto correct. I am using Zinzer not Zinger primer.

    Tom · 05/09/2020
    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?

      Sorry but no. Out stain is not designed to be applied over a primer.

    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.

    I have a 600sf deck that has the Rustoleum 4X Deck Restore on it that failed. It peeled like crazy. I've been able to pressure wash a bunch of it off with just water. What would be your recommendation for prep from here before using your solid stain?

      You would have to power sand this to remove this.

      Use the stripper to remove as much as possible. Let dry and then use the solid stain.

        Do I need to use the brightener also? How much of each should I get? I have almost 1000 square feet to cover.

          RAD Products · 04/29/2020
          Yes the brightener as well. Two kits of each. As for the stain. You would need 8-10 gallons for two coats.

    Our deck is about 18 months old (pine). The deck still looks new. The handrails are starting to weather some. I like the solid stain (brown oak). Can I just apply this or does it need any prep.

      You have to prep first. Use the RAD Cleaner/Brightener kits.

    Last year I painted a log cabin and deck with RAD. Customer and myself were very happy and I'll be seeing how it's holding up this year. I have a customer now who has a deck that has an acrylic latex flat stain on it with a product called Woodsman Revive. The stain on the deck is in good shape, I would propose power washing and staining without any sanding or stripping but I would like your opinion if you are familiar with the product. Customer stated that they were told it was not recommended to paint over this brand of stain and that it was impossible to clean the deck after staining. The stain seems to have some grit or coarseness to it. Thanks.

      It sounds like a deck resurfacer type product so no, you cannot add our product or any other product over it.

    My cedar deck is about 475 square feet. The last time it was stained was with a solid stain. I plan on using a RAD solid stain. Plan to power wash to remove loose paint. Do I need to use stripper or brightener? About how many gallons of solid stain will I need? Thanks!

      About 4-5 gallons for two coats. Strip off what you can while pressure washing.

    I've seen a few questions answered about tinting the RAD solid stain. We are getting ready to stain our deck coastal grey but we would like it a touch darker. What product would you recommend we tint the RAD should stain with?
    Thanks

      You cannot buy a tint and add to it. You would have to take to a paint store and see if they would be willing to tint it for you.
