    Have an old cedar deck with flecks of grey paint (can't get out). Would like to add some white or grey to your natural semi -transparent product to make the stain be a beach-toned, lighter appearance. Also, the deck is in a very hot, full sun location. Not concerned about guarantees, just wonder if you have ever tried this or seen it tried before. Thanks, Bill

    Does your dark walnut stain have a red tint to it? Will be applying it to 10 mo old PTP.

      The Dark Walnut does not have any red. The Light Walnut will have a little.

    Which color would best match a deck made with redwood? ? I am thinking the cedar, but thought I would see what you think.

      Any of the colors we offer can be used on redwood decking. Not sure what you are trying to match?

    Can I spray the stain on my deck, and can I do it in one coat
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 04/16/2019
      You can spray but you will need to back brush it to ensure even application.

    I've stained my deck with the RAD Light Walnut color.

    It is an almost 10 year old pine deck that was pretty badly weathered, had Cabot oil stain applied years ago. This summer I power washed/stripped/sanded/brightened and now stained. When I put on another coat in the next year or two is it possible to go darker with the Dark Walnut stain if we want to?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 10/22/2018
      Yes, as long as you prep with the RAD Cleaner, you can go darker.

    We have a horizontal cedar fence, and our house is Hardie Board night gray. I don’t want anything yellow or orange. Which color stain do you recommend to complement our siding? (I especially love the color of ipe wood - do any of your colors resemble ipe?) Thanks

    Some wind came up and caused some over-spray on my house siding. The spots would not come off with soap and water or mineral spirits. Can you recommend a product to remove the spots that won't
    damage the siding?

    I have a 7x13 new deck, with 3 stairs. Would one coat of the stain, and the small cleaning kit be enough for this project? thanks!

    I'm not clear on the wet on wet method. How soon. After the first coat to do a second coat? And won't walking on it make marks in the stain. I am a painter and all of this doesn't make sense to me

    I am preparing to use RAD to stain my cedar fence that was installed about 1.5 years ago, so it's in good shape. It's 6 feet high and I have about 100 linear feet to stain. Do you think three gallons to do one coat would be adequate or do you recommend two coats and/or more stain product? Thank you!
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 08/26/2018
      You will need to do two coats. If only doing one side, you will need about 6-7 gallons. If doing both sides of the fence, you will need 12-14 gallons.

    I have a large deck which takes quite a while to stain the railings. I am starting with the staining of the railings but walking on the deck floor to get to the railings. Also, the trees drop all kinds of tree junk on the floor of the deck. I would like to give the floor of the deck a quick pressure wash prior to staining the floor. With that said, how long until the newly stained railings can get wet?

    I purchased 7 gallons of stain. I am only adding one coat of stain because I have tigerwood (hardwood). I have no experience staining. It is a very big deck.i would like tto make sure I do it correctly.I hear an even coat's key since i am only doing one coat. Would it be better to use the brush or a pad? Also, there alot of spindles. Would you recommend a pad to do those?

    I am a middle age woman with no experience staining a deck. If I can't finish staining my 220 square foot area within a half hour, do I skip the second coat and do it the next year? I am confused on the instruction of doing the second coat within 30 minutes before it dries. I really don't think I will have enough time.

    As you pan across the row of nails, you can see some are even or just above deck surface, some are recessed below. Thanks

      RAD Products · 07/11/2018
      There is not a way to remove the solid stain from those nail areas. The only thing you can try is to blend with the light walnut or dark walnut. You will need to do a final prep with the cleaner and brightener. This will help the stain to soak in better. Only one coat for this sanded deck is needed.

    I have a porch, about 100 SF, about 20 years old. It's PT lumber, had the crappiest paint/stain jobs I think I've ever seen. Have sanded the deck bare except nail heads are still full in many spots. Is there a recommended way to clean them up and prep. How should I proceed with deck prep before staining and how many coats should I consider, probably going with light walnut if that makes a difference. Thanks

    I have a 900 square foot tigerwood deck. Purchased the housse two years ago and it had oil based natural stain at that time. The stain now appears to be failing. I plan to strip and brighten. How many gallons of stain would i need to restain? Since this is a hardwood, would it only need one coat? Does a natural water based stain look similar to a natural oil based stain when applied? Also, will the stripper damage painted wood siding next to deck if it gets on it?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 07/06/2018
      Just one coat for Tigerwood. About 5-7 gallons. Natural will give a color similar to a wet look. The stripper does not remove paint.
