    Will this stripper remove Thompson's water seal solid red deck stain? The deck is very old and has uneven planks, power washing will shred it.... any suggestions?

      No. A deck stain stripper will not remove a solid color deck stain fully. You will need to sand.

    We are hoping to go a little lighter on our deck (atleast on horizontal decking). Attached pictures of results after spraying with 0.1% sodium hypochlorite solution, then powerwashing. Results are not great. The close-up is of the dark boards under the gazebo. I don't know what stain was used. I can only assume it was a SW product based on the number of SW paints/etc that are in the basement from when we bought the house.

    Is RAD gonna help and would it make sense to use the additive?

      Yes, use the RAD Stripper with both additives. It will turn out much better. Brightener after.

        Thanks. Given that I'm using the thickener, what dwell time should we allow? Also, Our deck is about 750sqft, right in the middle of the 500-1000sqft coverage this product specs. Any idea which factors would cause it to lean one way or the other? Not sure if I need two sets.

          TWP Stains · 06/20/2019
          You should be okay with 1 set. Let dwell for 30-60 minutes. If it starts to dry out, mist it with water to keep it active.

    For old wood that was previously stained with Sikkens do I strip then stain with TWP or do I strip then clean then stain with TWP? Thank you.

    I used RAD Stripper over the weekend with booster and thickening. Worked pretty good but have about 1000 sq ft of deck so only made it a little over half way today. I will finish on Wednesday but might need to sand a few areas. At what point do I apply the brightener? I assume after the pressure wash and sanding. How long can I wait to brighten from the original pressure washing? Thank you!

      Brighten when all is removed. Try to do it as soon as you can.

    I don't know what is on the garage door. It looks like a semi-transparent stain that is fading in the sun. Do you think Restore-a-Deck will work? This is a photo of the door and a close up.
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 05/21/2019
      Yes, it should work. Use the Thickening Gel Additive as well. Make sure to use the Step 2 Brightener when done to neutralize.

    If I add your thickener to your stripper, can the mixture still be sprayed with a pump sprayer?

    How critical is it to wait 48 hours after using the stripper and brightener? Rain is in the forecast for the next two weeks? If I have to wait three weeks for 48 hours of sun will I need to reapplly brightener, or should I just stain within three weeks? I have a cedar deck and am re-applying twp 100.
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 04/28/2019
      You have to wait at least 48 hours after prep, there is no way around this. If you cannot stain within two weeks, you will need to lightly wash and brighten again.

    After I use the RAD stripper, rinse and let dry, can I simply re-stain with TWP or are other steps required?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 04/25/2019
      You need the brightener after the stripper. Wait 48 hours to dry and then stain.

    We plan to strip our deck (having used TWP CedarTone stain) every year for the last 6 years as we have some bare parts and some flaking wood. Other parts, that are under cover, are still really good though. Would Restore-A-Deck do the job? And if so, could you tell us when the deck/surrounding area are safe for a dog to be around it? Thanks.
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 03/25/2019
      Yes, the RAD Stripper and pressure washing. Brightener after you are done. The areas around will be fine once you are done and everything dries. Cover delicate plants.

    Will RAD stripper and Brightener strip the paint off the Hardiplank abutting the deck?

    Will RAD remove Olympic Maximum Stain + Sealant In One-Toner applied 3-4 years ago? Will RAD damage powder coated iron deck rails or adjoining hardier plank siding? Note the one light colored board we flipped 6 months ago due to an unsightly knot on other side.
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 02/04/2019
      It will remove this stain. Apply the stripper and pressure wash off. Rinse well and then apply the RAD Wood Brightener. You should protect the iron railings from both the Stripper and the Brightener. It will not harm the hardy plank.

    We plan on stripping and staining our second story deck. I am worried about how long to wait after we use the stripper and brightener to let the dog out in the area.

      When dry the deck is fully dry after the prep.

    Trying to find a product to remove old Sherwin Williams Deckscapes solid latex-based stain. Stain was applied approx 8 years ago. Boards on right - sanded with drum + orbital sanders. Boards on left, untouched. As you can see, existing stain is pretty thick. Hoping to use a product to remove and avoid labor intensive sanding. Will this (or any other product) remove the existing stain?

      A deck stain stripper will not remove a solid stain. You will have sand to remove.

    We have a 30 yr. old cedar deck that we have restained several times with a Wolman DuraStain One Coat semitransparent stain. When we replaced some of the boards five years ago, I thought it wise to put a wood preservative on first (that claimed it could be stained over) and now these boards won't hold the stain for more than a season. Will this stripper remove this peeling stain and allow a more porous surface? Thanks

      TWP Stains · 07/17/2018
      Sorry but this product cannot be stripped. To fix, you will need to power sand to remove.

    Just bought a home 30 miles north of Boise Idaho with 3 Doug Fir decks. Which prep and stain products do you recommend? Thanks!

      That looks like an acrylic semi-solid stain. Not easy to strip. Use the RAD Stripper and pressure washing to remove as much as possible. Sand if needed to remove the rest. Brighten after full removal. Stain with the TWP 100 Series when prep is done.

    Do I have to use a power washer with this to get rid of old stain? I used the 5 gal Cedar Tone CWF-UV stain from Home Depot to stain my deck a few years ago. Much of it has worn off completely on the vertical surfaces of the deck (and the wood is graying) but plenty of it remains on the horizontal surfaces. I also have an area with some blackish-greenish coloring due to water accumulation. (See pics for all details). I'm thinking of buying the TWP 100 & RAD stripper/brightener 5 gallon combo for this project. Would a garden hose be enough with this stripper, or is a power washer still necessary? My only concern is that I might damage the surface of the wood with the power washer. The lowest PSI I can rent is 1400.

      TWP Stains · 06/13/2018
      Yes, you will need the Stripper/Brightener Kit for this. Apply and pressure wash off. A hose will not get it off. You can rent a 3000 PSI machine. It is only 3000 psi it an inch away from the wood. When you wash you should be 8-12" away from the wood. This will drop the PSI to less than 1/2.

        Do I apply it with a pump spray first, or do I inject it during the pressure washing?

          Apply with a pump sprayer and then pressure wash off.

            WATYF · 06/13/2018
            OK. Thank you. I had one last question. The directions indicate you should wet surrounding vegetation before applying this so I'm going to water the grass around the deck before I apply it. But what about stuff like vinyl siding? Do I need to do anything to protect that?

              No. Just rinse very well to remove the dirt, etc.
