    How do you wait between applying cleaner and brighter and when can you re stain?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 07/19/2022
      You brighten right after the cleaner. Stain 48 hours later.

    Do you have a link to where I can just buy the cleaner? I have plenty of brightener left over for a stretch of fence, but just need the cleaner. I can't seem to find that by itself. It used to be sold in a red and white RAD bag that would mix and make 5 gallons.

      We do not sell just the cleaner on this site but you can order it on the Restore A Deck site.

    I just order 1500series . My deck is 4 months old and one page on your site says to use the restore a deck kit to clean but the restore page itself talks about using to remove dirt, mold , mildew and graying in which my deck has none of the above. Do I need to prep with this step an not?

      Yes, you must prep and yes you have oxidation to remove and mill glaze.

      Yes but make sure to rinse the plants with water from any over spray while working.

    Will either of these products harm my white vinyl railings/
    • We will reply to your comment shortly

      No, but pre-wet them and rinse while working so soap suds and dirt does not stick to the railings.

    Hello, I have a cedar TWP semi-transparent stained deck that was applied about 2 years ago. I recently had some of the cedar boards replaced and would like to apply the new semi-solid (Cabin Fever color) product. Is the Restore-A-Deck Kit an appropriate preparation prior to applying the semi-solid product? How long should I allow the new cedar boards to dry before the kit restoration and application of the semi-solid stain? Thank you!  Larry, Austin, TX

    Hi, We live in Ontario, Canada and we have a new composite deck built in June 2021. Above the composite deck we have a pergola and we have privacy shutters on both sides of the deck.  The contractor used cedar wood for the pergola and shutters.  The cedar wood has aged and looks grey after almost one year.  We want to stain it this year and have started to clean some of the cedar using Behr All-in-one cleaner but it was very labour intensive (we are both seniors) especially for the top of the pergola. The Behr instructions said you need to scrub off the solutions using a brittle brush.  Then we came across the RAD product and it looks like it doesn't need any scrubbing, just pressure wash.  Is this correct understanding?  If so, we have further questions:
    1) can we apply RAD again on the Behr cleaned wood? 
    2) will the cleaner and brightener damage the composite deck and the aluminum deck railing with glass insert?
    3) what is the best way/method to clean the top of the pergola?
    4) which way is easier/better to stain the pergola, brush or spray ?
    5) should we sand the cedar before cleaning? 
    6) I read somewhere it says if the wood was not stained after cleaning for longer than 14 days, then it needs to repeat the cleaning and brightening process again, is that true? 

    Attached is a picture of the pergola and shutters, it has been raining since last night so the wood is wet and doesn't appear grey but it is grey when dried.  Thank you so much for your help!

      1. Yes.
      2. They will not.
      3. Pressure wash on a ladder. Might want to hire it down.
      4. Stain pad or brush.
      5. No need.
      6. If you wait too long then it may gray again creating a need to redo the prep.

    Can I leave these products mixed in my sprayers so I can take from job to job?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 05/03/2022
      The cleaner has a shelf life of 4-6 hours after mixing. The brightener will last many days.

    Is this kit will get rid of peeling old paint? Or i have to scrub it first with wire brush and then apply cleaner?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 05/01/2022
      Paint? This will not remove paint nor will scrubbing. You will have to power sand to remove paint.

    I've seen some that suggest to add varnish/polyurethane to their stain. Is that something possible with TWP or not a good idea
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 04/30/2022
      No. You can never add a varnish to a deck stain. It would ruin the TWP coating and would result in peeling as well.

    Do I sand before using the gemini kit or after.  Ive always been told sanding is last step before staining or doesn't matter?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 04/29/2022
      Sand first. Clean and brighten is the last step.

    I have a ten year old cedar deck that has been treated every other year with the Restore-A-Deck Cleaner and Brightener followed by TWP 120.  This year, due to some major differences in the existing finish between areas of the deck that tale a lot of direct sunlight and those that don't see any, I chose to sand all of the surface boards.  Is it advisable to still use the cleaner and brightener?  Thanks!
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 04/28/2022
      Yes, this will open up the grain of the wood so the TWP can soak in better.

        At what point in the process should the sanding be done?
        • We will reply to your comment shortly
          TWP Stains · 04/29/2022
          If you sand, do it first or between the cleaner and the brightener.

    I am preparing to retreat my wood deck that has previously been treated with TWP cedartone and will retreat with same product.
    I am planning to use the Gemini RAD kit
    Do I also need to use a stripper?  If so, before cleaner?  
    And is this correct process:
    1. Powerwash (what PSI)
    2. Stripper (if needed)
    3. Cleaner
    4. Brightner wait 20 min
    5. Rinse
    6. 48 hours for drying
    7. TWPStain

      No need to strip. The steps are correct!
