    I have an old solid stain on my deck currently and would like to apply a new solid stain. Does this require the stripper then brightener or just a good cleaning and power wash to remove loose/peeling material/grime. Thank you

      Strip what you can while pressure washing. Brightener after to neutralize.

    Okay so I got my solid coastal gray but when I went to strip the former paint there was a lot left. So I bought a heavier duty paint stripper. What if I can’t strip all of the former paint? Can I still use the stain?

      The RAD Solid Stain will cover previous solid stains as long as it is intact and not peeling.

        This is my deck. I cleaned and power washed it last weekend but there is still a lot of paint left. What can I do? Is there any way I can just paint over this?

          You can this with a solid stain but best to sand off any loose stain that is on there now. You can cover the rest.

    I have a rough sawn cedar picket fence I just purchased and will install. Do I still need to prep or wait to weather? I was told by lumber yard that it is ready to take stain immediately.

    thabk you!

      If rough sawn wood, you can stain now with no prep needed.

    What is the longest I can wait after using the cleaner and brightened to apply the stain ?
    Also, although I think I know the answer to this, decking is very old with no stain. All the boards were flipped over which almost looks like new wood. Do I still treat as old wood and apply 2 coats ?

      You will have to Strip and Brighten the wood to switch. 2 of each of those. About 10 gallons of stain for 2 coats.

    10 year old dock and railing, previously always used TWP 100 but it seems to only protect for a year. Can I use RAD on top? Last application 2 years ago - replacing some boards due to rot. dock is 1069 sq feet - wondering how much I need of each product.

    I stained the deck last year using A semi transparent Thompson’s (the worst). I want to use the solid espresso RAD. The deck is only 2 years old and in great condition. Do I need to use the cleaner, stripper and brighter before I apply the solid expresso RAD stain?
    thanks you

      Use the Stripper for best results to remove as much as you can. Brighten after. You can cover what does not come off fully with the RAD Stain.

    Hello,

    If I sand the surface, should I still use the RAD cleaner or brightener before applying RAD solid stain?


    Thanks

      Yes. Do not sand to fine. Use 80 grit or less paper.

    Attached is a picture of my deck before and after two applications of deck stripper. From what I can tell the existing coatings was a solid stain. I don't know what brand it was, it was applied by the prior home owners 9+ year ago. I have since sanded any remaining flaking paint which leaves me with a relatively smooth surface, albeit still with lots of existing stain as you can tell. After I brighten this to neutralize the stripper is this ready for RAD application? The deck is approximately 500 sqft, how many gallons should I purchase?

    Kyle · 10/09/2019
    I was reading about the wet on wet application for the second coat. Does this apply to the solid stains as well or just the semi-transparent stains? I have stripped and brightened my deck and plan to stain tomorrow with a solid stain but probably won’t have time to apply a second coat until next weekend. If that is the case, should I wait to apply a second coat until the spring since it is outside the 20 minutes - 1 hour time or will it be okay to apply the second coat next weekend?

      RAD Products · 10/10/2019
      Solid stains are not wet on wet. The second coat goes on after the first is dry but typically the same day is the best way.

    I have a 20 years old deck.
    I plan to use RAD cleaner and Brightener.
    I want to use RAD SOLID stain - Coastal Gray.

    1. Deck is 17 x 38 = 646 square feet
    Rails are 49 FEET long (102 spindles and 7 posts)
    I'm sure I will be doing 2 coats on the deck.
    How many gallons of solid stain do I need for deck and rails?

    I've read on the posting --- some say 3-4 gallons and other 6-7 gallons.

      RAD Products · 10/10/2019
      You will need about 5-6 gallons for this and two coats.

    I want to use semi-transparent dark walnut stain on the floor of the deck, and a solid color stain for the railings but you don't show that color in your color chart for solid colors. What do you recommend for matching the dark walnut semi-transparent?

    Thank you,

    Pat

      There is not a matching solid stain. Closest would be Brown Oak.

    Deck rails previously painted white by previous owner. Now flaking off. I powerwashed slightly while preparing the horizontal surface for your stripper/ brightener/ semi-transparent stain. I would like to use your solid white stain. How prep do I need to complete? Do I need to get as much old paint off as I can?

      Remove all the peeling stain. You can cover the rest that is fully intact to the wood.

    I see that the solid stain can be tinted. I'm looking for a reddish color, what color would be a choice to start with (tinting to be done at a McCormick paint store)? I do deck restorations and look forward to trying restore-a-deck products to clean & stain in 1 day. thanks

      Any acrylic tint can be added. Use the white as the based and add red. Or you can start with Light walnut and make that redder.

    Is there a way to safely clean any spritz of the solid stain from PVC/vinyl railing?v will lacquer thinner do the trick?

      You would need a water-based graffiti paint remover.

    Interested in RAd solid stain as we are dealing with a lot of splotchiness that isn't responding to stripping. Am I right a solid stain would cover this?


    Two other questions re RAD solid stain:

    1) annual maintenance: we are in a high traffic downtown area of our city so grime accumulates winter and summer. How do we deal with this during our spring cleanup without affecting the new finish? A light pressure wash? A cleaner?


    2) If the finish must be redone every few years, what's the process? Stripping, sanding? How easily is RAD solid stain removed?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 09/03/2019
      A solid stain will cover it. To remove dirt, use soapy water and a light bristle (car wash brush) to agitate. Rinse. When time to redo, prep and recoat as before. You cannot remove it fully but no need to. Just coat over the top of it after the prep.

      Only way to mask would be to add another coat. Did you let the wood dry out?

        Ok, thanks. I was told rough sawn could be coated without a drying period, so I haven’t.

    Hi, I'm excited to try your product after reading the great reviews. I have a 25 year old deck that I stained 5 years ago with a Solid Stain (Lowes brand). I recently power washed (see pictures) in preparation to put down a fresh coat of stain. I also plan on lightly sanding my deck before applying your RAD Solid Stain (mostly because the wood is a bit rough from overzealous power washing).

    1. If I'm both pressure washing and sanding, but still have some of the original solid stain left on horizontal surfaces, do I also need to use any of your stripper, cleaner, or brightener products?

    2. If my deck is 14 feet by 12 feet (168 sq ft) how much RAD Solid Stain should I purchase to also cover spindles on 3 sides as well as 2 small steps?


    Thanks in advance for your time!

      You can coat over the existing stain as long it is fully intact to the wood and not peeling. About 3 gallons.
