    Do I need to clean and brighten new wood for a fence before staining? Do I need to let the Wood age before staining? I need to stain it before I can build the fence because we are doing a basket weave fence instead of traditional fence and need to protect all sides of the wood. Do you think I’ll be okay with not letting the Wood age first?

    You said that this can all be done in a day. I cleaned and brightened my deck yesterday only to find out on the brightening package that you must wait 48 hours before staining. Is this not the case? This has ruined my plans because of weather.

      That is only when using a different brand of stain. You can use the RAD stain the same day as prep.

    when you say the stain covers 100-200 sq feet per gallon is that with the 2 coat suggested on old wood?
    I have 600 sq ft , should I expect 5gal in the cleaner, brightener and stain kit get me close to 2 coats.

      You will need 5-7 gallons for two coats and 600 sq feet.

    Which stain do you think would go best with our siding and roof? I was thinking light walnut. I don't want something really yellow or orange. I'm going more for a rich light brown maybe with some reddish? I just want to do what is going to look the best though. I really like the look of natural wood until it starts graying. We also have a dark brown deck in the back.

    If I use this, must it be stripped before restaining in future years? Or can you simply recoat over the existing stain?

    Hi. Will the cleaner, brightener, or stain affect the PVC railing on my deck or do I need to mask? Thanks.

      The cleaner and brightener should have no effect but do not get the stain on it.

    1. Based on your deck calculator, I need 5 gallons of stain for my deck. If I get the package that includes 5 gallons of stain + cleaner x 1 and brighter x 1----will that be enough cleaner and brightner to cover the entire deck. 2. If I order tonight or tomorrow morning, approximately how soon will it be at my house (live in Dallas, Texas). Thank you !!

      The cleaner/brightener kit will cover roughly 750 sq feet so it should be enough. Shipping to TX takes 3-4 business days.
