    I have ordered 5 gal of cedar RAD stain. Does it need to be well stirred when it arrives?

      Just shake it when it arrives. It does not have to be well stirred as it does not settle that much.

    Does the "Natural" Color have less UV protection than the other colors? Darker the color, more UV protection?

      RAD Products · 08/16/2018
      The Natural color is tinted., not clear so it will provide UV protection. In general, darker colors will give slightly better UV protection from fading than a lighter tint.

    I have a 5 year old deck, previously stained with Sikkens Cetol Log and Siding Stain on pressure treated wood. It is now peeling and and in some places badly worn at the eave drip line. Do I need to sand it off before applying RAD or can I use a chemical stripper?

      RAD Products · 08/02/2018
      Hello, it is not possible to remove this type/version of Sikkens with the RAD stripper. You will need to sand this off and then use the RAD Cleaner/Brightener Kit for the final prep.

    We have a deck that we are going to stain. We used a redwood stain a few years ago and regret using it. The stain has worn off the deck and we may strip a small part of it if the deck cleaner doesn't do the job. where the redwood stain still show. My question is the spindles. We want to use the walnut colored stain. Will it cover up the redwood color on the spindles? I can't imagine stripping every single spindle.

      Sorry but no. You will need to remove the current stain fully before using the RAD wood stains.

    We have a 2 year old cedar deck that had an oil based Cabot stain. As it was covered in mildew, we striped, cleaned, and brightened. It is down to bare wood. Is there anything else to do before using a RAD stain?

      RAD Products · 07/12/2018
      As long as the wood is clean and free of the old Cabot, dirt, and mildew, you should be good to go!

    Is it best to test samples after new wood has aged a few months or will sampling new (in my case pine I think) still give a good enough idea of how it will look? Also if my deck was just installed (July 10) in Chicago on a covered porch, is it better to stain after three months in October or wait til next summer? Thank you!

      Weather until Spring. Do the sample test after the weathering. Sand off those ink spots now.

    What is the shelf-life for unused stain? Can it last until needed to reapply next year? Also, what's the best method for mixing you stain?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 07/05/2018
      Just shake it to stir. If you store the stain in a temperature controlled room and unopened, it can last a few years.

    Is it OK to use Gemini Product Cleaner/Brightner which we already purchased from TWP before using RAD stain?
    Thanks!

      If you do not currently have a coating on the wood then yes.

    I have a 2 year old Benjamin Moore Arborcoat transparent teak stained deck that is peeling. What do I need to do for prepping to restain?

      RAD Products · 06/23/2018
      The BM Arborcoat cannot be stripped. It will have to be sanded off for the prep.

    I've always heard oil based is a better and longer lasting stain than water based. Is that not really accurate? Are all your stains water based? Will your darker colors last longer than the lighter colors?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 06/01/2018
      Water-based stains have come a long way in the past few years. Better penetration into the wood than before will equal less chance of wearing and peeling. The RAD stains will also be much better at mildew than an oil-based stain. UV protection will be slightly better as well but that depends on the opacity. The RAD stains are water-based. Darker colors will have a slight advantage with UV fading than a lighter color.

    Does the natural need to be reapplied yearly?

    Can I buy a sample of just one color instead of all 4? I need to know if the natural color is truly natural or if it darkens the wood after application.
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 05/10/2018
      Natural is tinted and darkens the wood similar to as if wet with water. We do not sell samples individually.

    My cedar deck has just been cleaned and brightened. Can your clear stain be applied as is without redoing the prep with your products?

      Post a picture please to make sure it is prepped well. Thanks

    Which stain would be best for a redwood deck? The deck is approx 4 years old and was sealed with a clear stain when new. I plan on using the cleaner and brighter, but am unsure which semi transparent stain to use.

      RAD Products · 04/15/2018
      The Restore A Deck Wood Stain would work well. FYI, you have to strip and brighten for prep. A cleaner will not remove the clear stain that you have and that will have to come off prior to applying a new coating of deck stain.
