    One other question I have regarding the solid stain - with the color variation where you show shade vs. full sun, does that mean that is how the color will appear in shaded areas vs. sun areas, or how the actual color will look permanently?

      RAD Products · 06/18/2021
      That is how the colors will look when in shade or in full sun.

    We are remodeling our existing deck (replacing deck floor boards, rails, posts, balusters, and stairs with treated lumber) but keeping our existing substructure and footings, which have some kind of paint that is peeling off. I have ordered the R-A-D cleaner/stripper kit, the thickening gel additive and the brightener. Since the substructure is old wood, can I strip/clean/brighten and then stain right away while waiting for the new wood to weather until later this year?

      You cannot remove paint with a stripper. You would have to sand to remove the paint.

    If we have unused solid stain sealed in its 1 gallon contained how long can it be stored and used at a later date for another coat?  Same question for an unopened gallon of solid stain.

    Yesterday we cleaned and brightened our 1 year old natural decks. I noticed some whiteish looking areas, so today we wet the decks again and brushed out the areas that appeared to be stained, and rinsed. Why did the white stains appear? Tomorrow we plan to apply the solid satin. Can we apply to the dry ptp or do we need to wet the decks down prior to rolling the stain on? Thanks

      Not sure but it is not an issue since you will be using the solid stain. You can apply the solid stain to dry or damp wood.

    The coverage says 250-300 sq/ft. Is that with 2 coats over that area or will I need another gallon for the second coat?

    A few weeks ago, my wife and I applied a maintenance coat of semi-transparent dark walnut to our deck. After living with a cedar tone for many years, we love the new, dark, semi-transparent color. We also stripped and cleaned the privacy wall and applied RAD solid stain (cypress color). We're not thrilled with the look of the solid in the cypress color across the whole wall. We'd like to try a two-tone paint scheme. I have two questions. (1.) Do I need to clean and brighten the wall if I am just applying a darker solid RAD stain over parts of it? As I mentioned, it was only stained a few weeks ago, and is still clean. (2.) If we still don't like the look of it with two solid RAD stains, then what prep would we need to do next year to apply a semi-transparent on portions of it? A couple of your replies to other people suggest that I might need to clean, brighten and then sand all the solid stain off.

      1. Just clean and pressure wash.2. You would have to sand off the solid stain if you want to go a semi-transparent. That would be very hard to do with your fence.

    Can the solid stain be applied over a fence that was previously painted?

      The RAD solid stains can be applied over other stains after proper prep but cannot be applied over a common paint.

    I have all new wood on the floor, stairs, and tops of the railings - but an old mix of dark stain on the railings and pergola (picture attached).  Could I do a mix of solid stain on the pergola and railings, and semi-transparent on the new?  I need to go dark - so it'd Brown oak and Walnut???  Or should I just do all solid stain?  Just seemed a shame with the new.  Thank you!

    I’m interested in the Espresso solid stain. I’m attaching a picture of the current condition of my deck. Would I need to strip the old stain off before applying the new stain?

      That is not from the stain but looks like dirt running down the sides maybe from rain.

    I currently have Pewter gray Behr solid color stain on my deck. I would like to use your product using two colors. White for the railings and coastal gray for the deck. Will the white solid stain cover the pewter gray on the railings?

      Yes, but you will need at least 2 coats, maybe 3.

    I completed my deck restoration last year using RAD products and RAD solid stain. It came out great! The deck held up well through the first year, without any peeling or chipping. I intend to apply a single maintenance coat of RAD solid stain this spring.
    1)    Do I need to power wash the deck before application, or is a solid rinse with a hose sufficient?
    2)    Is there any other preparation steps needed?
    3)    What is the minimum temperature you recommend for application and drying? The product label says 45 – 95 degrees, but is 45 truly acceptable, or is it safer to stay at a higher temperature?
    Thanks!

      -Light pressure wash-Use the cleaner if you have any dirt or mildew-Temps are correct. No issues at 45.

    Hi,How many gallons for a 12x16 deck + railing? Also, can your solid stains be adjusted to a color of liking if I use mixol tints?
    Thanks

      4-5 gallons for two coats. We would not suggest custom tinting.

        Okay. What is the best way to apply it, roll and brush or can I just brush it with a good latex brush? Does it cover a pre-existing water base stain? I just sanded most of the deck, will go over it again with an 80grit — do I need the brighten step or can I just apply it directly without that step since the board will be sanded and cleaned well? 
        • We will reply to your comment shortly
          RAD Products · 03/28/2021
          Roll and brush. It will cover old stains. No need to brighten in your scenario.

            RT00 · 03/28/2021
            What is the optimal time for applying the second coat? Would you start with railing first and then do the deck boards? Also, do you suggest an outdoor rug to preserve the color better or would that do more damage? 
            Thank you for your help!

              When applying the solid stain, best to apply the second coat as soon as the first coat is dry. Rugs work well and look nice.

                Hi,So I just stained 99% of my deck. It looks great! I bought 5 gallons because you suggested 4-5, however, I only used 2 gallons for two coats. Can I return at least two gallons? Thanks!

    I read some reviews of your stains and am interested in trying one. I had already power washed, stripped, sanded, and brightened my 30 year old deck before I learned about your products. When the deck is dry the it’s hard to see any of the solid stain that was on it remaining on the wood. When wet, you can see the old stain becomes visible in many of the little cracks (I attached some photos showing the contrast). It is incredible hard to get the remaining stain out.
    My question is, do I have to use a solid stain to cover the flaws, or would a semi-transparent tint the bits of stain left in the cracks and even out the appearance? I like the look of the semi-transparent, but I realize the wood is very old and may need to be coated with the solid.
    Thanks,
    Julie

      You would have to use a solid stain to cover the solid stain that you are unable to remove.

    New deck; weathered for six months. Cleaned and brightened the wood. Applied first coat of solid color stain and approximately three hours later applied second coat. As I was finishing second coat we got a very brief but heavy unexpected rain shower. Rain washed stain off some areas and others have chalky residue that looks like it will brush off. Is it OK to apply another coat after the deck has dried? We are now expecting rain for a few more days.

    I have an old weather deck. I have already cleaned and powerwashed on my own and repaired cracks. I am not going to sand. Would I be able to move straight to restore a deck solid stain without using any of your other products with no application troubles?

    I see that solid stain can be applied to new wood if it is rough wood. Does this hold true for resawn wood as well (still rough, but not as coarse as rough).

    I have a fairly wethered 1000 sqft deck. How many gallons of solid stain would you reccomend? (Filling in cracks etc).


    also I had to replace some rotted boards - will the new pressure treated pine boards take the stain well enough?

    From a chemical/bonding standpoint, can I mix two colors of RAD solid stain (coastal gray and white 50/50) . I would take full responsibility for the color and gracefully listen to any ensuing lecture. I have the stripper/cleaner and have applied a sample of the coastal gray and it is too dark. I'd still like to use the RAD over any of my other stain options.

        Got the samples of coastal gray and classic white fast. Thanks! Took far less white than I thought to brighten up the coastal gray. Stained my replacement board from this spring so it's a nice big sample to look at. 10% to 15% white got an enthusiastic thumbs-up from both of us. That's about a pint of white to a gallon of gray. Pondering what to do with the rest of the white if I order in gallons...

    Are there full instructions for solid stain? We bought cleaner & brightener & solid stain. Do we need to pressure wash? If yes, at what point in the process? Can we apply the solid stain to a wet (damp) deck? Thanks!
