    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?

      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?

      Try a water-based graffiti remover from your local paint store.

    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

      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.

    I live in an area that often rains for hours on end. After such a rainfall, when the standing water on my deck disappears, can I apply the restore-a-deck stain? if it is better to wait until the wood is dry, how long should I wait? Also, how long can I store the stain in my garage before it loses its effectiveness?

    Thank you for your reply in advance!

      The RAD stain can be applied to damp wood or dry wood. Not soaking wet wood. Stain can last about 12 months if opened a few years if unopened as long as it is stored in a temperature controlled room.

    I recently picked up an outdoor patio dining table/chairs set made of mahogany that presently has a nice weathered gray finish. I'd like to preserve the gray finish. I plan to clean it and sand it before staining. Is the natural stain the way to go? Or will it end up bringing back the original mahogany color? Which stain should I select?

      Sorry, but we do not have a clear coat that would work for what you are trying to do. The RAD stains are tinted semi-transparent colors.

    Have sanded and prepped a cedar deck that is 20 years old. Was grey, moldy and mildew. It's about 250 sq' with railings. I powerwashed then sanded. I think it turned out great. Unfortunately I applied a cabot stain semi solid that I thought my wife would like. You guessed it she doesnt, and in all fairness I don't either. It is almost orange. Yuk! I would like to use your stripper, then brightner and then finally one of your stains. Wood is smooth and good shape from prior sanding, so I would love to avoid doing that again if possible. I know you cant tell me which color to get, understand I do not want anything near orange. It looks like the natural may lean yellow/orangish, so I am thinking light walnut. I also like seeing the grain of the wood, and the current cabot virtually obscures all grain, like a paint. Please help, your product appears to be what I'm looking for

      Unfortunately, a stain stripper will not remove this. It is applied to the point that it is filming like a solid stain and stain stripper like ours will not remove it when this thick. You will have to sand this off.

      Once removed you will be able to use the RAD Wood Stain. We do have samples for testing.

    If I am unable to do a second coat(wet on wet), may not have enough. Can you apply a second coat a few days later?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 05/20/2018
      No. It will already have cured by then. If you are able to only do one coat, then leave as is and do a light recoat in a year.

    The stain comes in 2 1/2 gallon containers. Can you shake these to mix or do you have to pour them out into a bucket and mix?

    Trying to choose a color for a new redwood deck, and I don't have time to send for the samples. Do you have any pictures of the 4 stains on redwood? Also if we decide we want it darker in a year when it's ready for the next coat can we just go over it with the darker RAD stain?
