    I had to replace 4 boards on the deck randomly. Do I need to skip painting them for 3-6 months until they age and weather?

    Does the solid stain always require 2 coats ?

    Deck rails previously painted white by previous owner. Now flaking off. I powerwashed slightly while preparing the horizontal surface for your stripper/ brightener/ semi-transparent stain. I would like to use your solid white stain. How prep do I need to complete? Do I need to get as much old paint off as I can?

      Remove all the peeling stain. You can cover the rest that is fully intact to the wood.

    I see that the solid stain can be tinted. I'm looking for a reddish color, what color would be a choice to start with (tinting to be done at a McCormick paint store)? I do deck restorations and look forward to trying restore-a-deck products to clean & stain in 1 day. thanks

      Any acrylic tint can be added. Use the white as the based and add red. Or you can start with Light walnut and make that redder.

    Is there a way to safely clean any spritz of the solid stain from PVC/vinyl railing?v will lacquer thinner do the trick?

    Interested in RAd solid stain as we are dealing with a lot of splotchiness that isn't responding to stripping. Am I right a solid stain would cover this?


    Two other questions re RAD solid stain:

    1) annual maintenance: we are in a high traffic downtown area of our city so grime accumulates winter and summer. How do we deal with this during our spring cleanup without affecting the new finish? A light pressure wash? A cleaner?


    2) If the finish must be redone every few years, what's the process? Stripping, sanding? How easily is RAD solid stain removed?

      RAD Products · 09/03/2019
      A solid stain will cover it. To remove dirt, use soapy water and a light bristle (car wash brush) to agitate. Rinse. When time to redo, prep and recoat as before. You cannot remove it fully but no need to. Just coat over the top of it after the prep.

      RAD Products · 08/15/2019
      Only way to mask would be to add another coat. Did you let the wood dry out?

        Wes B · 08/16/2019
        Ok, thanks. I was told rough sawn could be coated without a drying period, so I haven’t.

    Hi, I'm excited to try your product after reading the great reviews. I have a 25 year old deck that I stained 5 years ago with a Solid Stain (Lowes brand). I recently power washed (see pictures) in preparation to put down a fresh coat of stain. I also plan on lightly sanding my deck before applying your RAD Solid Stain (mostly because the wood is a bit rough from overzealous power washing).

    1. If I'm both pressure washing and sanding, but still have some of the original solid stain left on horizontal surfaces, do I also need to use any of your stripper, cleaner, or brightener products?

    2. If my deck is 14 feet by 12 feet (168 sq ft) how much RAD Solid Stain should I purchase to also cover spindles on 3 sides as well as 2 small steps?


    Thanks in advance for your time!

      You can coat over the existing stain as long it is fully intact to the wood and not peeling. About 3 gallons.

    We ordered your RAD Semi-Transparent Wood Stain in Cedar for our deck surface. Which color of your RAD Solid Stain would match best or be the best complement for the railings? We'd prefer to stay with a lighter color that is similar or very close to the Cedar. We were thinking the Cypress or Desert Taupe but were not sure if they would clash.

        Thanks and I have a follow up questions. Between the two products RAD Semi-Transparent Wood Stain and RAD Solid Stain which will hold up better and last longer between applications on deck railings? We were thinking of using the Semi-transparent on the railings but then wondered if the Solid Stain might hold up better and be lower maintenance for re-applications in the long run.

    Hello. I have a log sided trailer. The original finish was removed and recorded with Sikkens Prolux Cetol Log & Siding Translucent wood finish (078 Natural) in August, 2015. (Photo of condition attached)
    I plan to powerwash prior to refinishing with RAD Solid Stain for better longevity.

    Q1: What other prep do I need?
    Q2: If I need to use RAD Strpper will it harm colored metal roofing?
    Q3: I would like to closely match (does not need to be perfect) an addition that was finished last year with Behr Premium Solid Color Waterproofing Stain and Sealer CEDAR color. (Photo attaced) How can I get a physical color chart for comparison.

      1. Strip and brighten for prep.
      2. No, it should not.
      3. Cypress would be closest in color. A color chart would look the same as the one our webpage.

    Brent · 08/01/2019
    Can I apply the RAD semi-transparent on my existing deck after a cleaner/pressure wash if it was previously stained with Armstrong-Clark semi solid oil based stain? Or do I need to use a stripper first?

    Thanks

      RAD Products · 08/01/2019
      You will need to strip it if switching to the RAD stain.

        Brent Hupp · 08/19/2019
        Thank you. A couple of follow ups.

        Q1: if I’m switching to your solid stain, do I still need to strip the existing Armstrong semi-solid stain? Or just clean and power wash?
        Q2: for a redwood fence, what semi-transparent color would you recommend to enhance the redwood.
        Q3: do you offer 5 gal of your solid stain?

        thank you!

      You can apply to damp wood if using the RAD stains. Must be dry if using a different brand of deck stain.

    GKF · 07/24/2019
    Thanks for the prior response to my previous questions...

    Q1: Just verifying what I've been reading about re-application of RAD Solid Stain over itself after about 5 - 7 years. My understanding is that stripping of the old application is not required beyond pressure washing & removal of any loose finish. Is this correct?

    Q2: There is a fair bit of woodpecker damage on the house siding. Wood filler has been used to repair the damage. Will RAD Solid Stain adhere to the filler?

    Q3: The siding was previously stained with an unknown product approx 15 years ago. I don't know if it was oil or water based. It appears to be a product which absorbed into the wood. Are there any special requirements for applying RAD Solid over an unknown absorbent stain?

    Q4: Is RAD Solid Stain an absorbent product or does it remain on the surface of the wood like a paint? If the later will it split / peel like a paint?

    Thanks for your help!

      RAD Products · 07/24/2019
      1. Yes.
      2. Yes, it will adhere.
      3. Just prep with the prep products and pressure washing.
      4. It absorbs some and films at the same time since it is a solid stain.

    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.

    Mike P. · 07/17/2019
    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.

          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!
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      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.
