    I had my new deck installed May2019. When I just contacted Restore a deck about staining, I was referrred to the New Deck article, which stated to stain within 6-8 months. My contractor came out to make repairs and said: Update: All the pieces you identified were changed out. After assessing it, it seems like the wood is drying out faster than normal due to the extreme heat we've been having. It would be advantageous to seals/paint the deck now to avoid cracks from contraction.

    Can you use acrylic paint on top of the classic white to create a pattern?

    I'm going to use a solid stain for redoing my raised cedar deck and stairs in order to lengthen the time between applications. I'm planning to use a deck stain brush for all the horizontal pieces and would like to avoid using a ladder to reach the outside facing edge of the many, many spindles that are part of the project. Can I use a lambskin "paint mitt" to apply the solid stain to all sides the spindles?

    Thank you.

      No, a lambs wood pad will not apply a solid stain. You will need a roller or a hand brush. The RAD Deck Stain Brush (the yellow one) will also not work with a solid stain.

    I have a wood deck that was originally painted blue. I have no idea what king of paint it was. Do I have to strip all the blue paint or can I just paint over? I want to use Coastal Gray, will it cover blue?

      It will cover it but it will take at least two coats. Pressure wash for prep.

    I primed my deck with Rust-Oleum RockSolid Deck Start Exterior Wood Primer. It says I can put solid stain over the top. So, will your solid stain work ok on top of this primer?

        "RockSolid Deck Start Wood Primer saves time and simplifies prep before applying solid deck stains and coatings by eliminating the need for sanding and stripping" So.. WHY won't this work with your solid stain??

          Our product needs to soak in somewhat, not fully dry on the surface. Actually, they are wrong as well, all solid color deck stains (they are not paints) are like this and do not work with primers.

    Hi, I was thinking of using RAD semi-transparent stain the siding and RAD solid stain on windows/doors/trim on a small cabin. It's no problem to let the siding weather before staining but it would be a lot easier to paint the windows/doors/trim as I go. If I don't want to let those pieces weather, is there anything I can do to prep new wood to receive stain immediately? Thanks!

      RAD Products · 06/26/2019
      Sorry but no, you cannot "speed" this up. Since it is vertical trim and you are using a solid there, I doubt you will have an issue if you do it now. The weathering is needed more for horizontal wood application.

    We used the solid stain in dessert taupe on our deck for the first time. It was very easy to apply
    we love the color! However the color is much lighter than the chart. Perfect for us, but I
    just wanted to mention that.

    Hello
    I put my order in yesterday. Today as I’m sanding the railings it occurs to me there is a chance this might be paint. How do I find out if the existing treatment is paint or solid stain? The neighbour recalls it might be stain but he’s not 100%. Here is a photo.

    Thanks

      Looks like a solid stain. Make sure all the peeling or stain that is not current adhering is removed first.

    If I am using solid stain on a stripped and power washed PT deck that has no peeling paint, is there any advantage to brightening or can I just apply the solid stain?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 06/14/2019
      The brightener neutralizes the stripper so the wood is not in a high caustic state.

        Sorry to keep asking questions, I really want to do this correctly. We got a lot of rain after the stripping and sanding process. In your opinion, should I use a brightener?

    I will be using solid taupe on a very weathered pressure treated deck. I have stripped, sanded and brightened. What is the best application method, roller or a upright staining brush/broom. Also, should I missed the deck with water before applying? And do you recommend two coats?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 06/13/2019
      For a solid stain, use a roller. and brush. You will need two coats. Make sure the stain that is still on the wood is not peeling in any spots. You can apply to dry wood for this.

    Solid Stain application - what is the recommended time for second coat, after full cure (24-48) or after dry to touch (2 hours) also can all be applied with roller

    Pat · 05/30/2019
    I have an older (1995) PT deck that has peeling solid stain. I've read that the pre-2004 PT wood doesn't hold paint or solid stains well. I've tried stripping off the old stain, but some is still stuck on pretty well, and I really don't feel like investing the time and energy sanding off the rest.

    Is there any product or treatment I can use to get a solid stain to stick to this wood? It's not in the kind of shape where I want to use a semi-transparent and see the wood.

      Just prep to remove loose and peeling stain and then apply the solid stain.

    So . . . Is there any harm if I apply a third coat at this stage? (one or two days after second coat). I don't want to create problems for myself. Thanks.

    Jim · 05/27/2019
    Looking for advice on possible third coat of solid stain. Refinishing an 75 year old fir covered porch floor that had been completely stripped 30 years ago and finished periodically with semi-solid acrylic. I orbital sanded all loose and peeling stain and even hit the intact stain a bit to prep. Before staining I would say about 30 % of the surface was down to bare wood (old school fir very dense). After two coats i anm still seeing some spots where the bare wood did not cover as well and is visibly flatter than the surrounding floor. Maybe less that 5%. I am tempted to put a thin third coat down on the whole floor or maybe hit only these areas with a third coat. Any advice for me?

      Post a picture. Most likely okay for one more coat.

    I have 414 square feet (let’s say 450 to be safe) to stain. How many gallons of the cleaner, brightener, and stain do I need? 2 each?

      The Cleaner and Brightener are powdered concentrates that make 5-gallons of each. You will only need 1 kit. 3-4 gallons of the RAD solid stain for the 2 coats.

      Pressure wash with the RAD stripper to remove the dirt and any loose and peeling solid stain that is currently on there. You can then cover the remaining solid stain that is fully intact to the wood.
