Awesome deck stain. Prepped the wood and 2 hours later we stained the deck. All done in half a day!

    Looking for advice on which finish will give me the closest results to the top half of attached photo. For reference it is a redwood deck that was just power washed.

    I am staining a new cedar deck after waiting 4 months after installation. I did step 1 and 2 of cleaning and brightening the wood. I ordered the cedar colored stain, but it is going on much darker. See the attached picture with test patch on single board. Is there any process to test out different colors before purchasing a large quantity?

    We will be restaining a 2 year old redwood deck that recently was treated with an inferior product that did not penetrate, only formed a film. We will not retain the railings because they look ok and we are trying to save on labor expense now, focusing only on the deck boards. What RAD stain color for the deck boards will be closest to a redwood stain previously used and still visible on the railings?

    I already bought dark walnut. Was thinking of using that for the railings, and light Walnut for the floor boards and stairs. How do youall think it'll look?

    I'll need enough light Walnut for 700sq ft. How much should I buy?
    It's a 5yo pressure treated deck which was stripped of a semi solid stain and brightened.

    Here's a pic pre prepped

      I am sure it would look fine with the two colors. About 6-7 gallons for two coats and 700 sq feet.

    I’m so confused. My deck is about 25 years old- cedar I believe. I’ve stained, stripped sanded and restrained this deck many times. I just stripped then lightly sanded it followed by Behr conditioner/brightener. I applied Behr quick dry oil stain to 1/2 of the deck and it looks TERRIBLE! I can only put so much more effort into this thing, help, what do you recommend?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 06/17/2019
      You will need to remove the Behr and start over. Can you reply with some pictures?

    My 24x15 pressure treated pine deck came with my house with a thick finish from Rustoleum called Deck and Concrete Restore. Knowing it was too thick to sand, I have (painstakingly) hand scraped it off and plan to sand the remaining glue and bits to bare wood with a big rental sander. If I sand to bare wood, do I still need to clean and brighten, or just move on to stain? With sanded wood, will it need 2 coats? There are a few replacement boards which are much lighter. Will I need to stain them differently to match? (Rails are painted so no worries there.) Thanks!

    I'm going to be staining a new cedar deck (after about 3-4 months of weathering). Which color stain would you recommend for cedar wood so that it will look as close as possible to the color it has now?

    As recommended, I plan to use the cleaner/brightener and then stain with a semi-transparent stain with 1 coat since this is new wood.

      Any color will work and the colors will all enhance the natural grain of your wood. Natural color is the lightest.

    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

      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?
