    How do I chose between RAD stripper vs Safe Strip. Are they essentially the same?

      RAD Stripper is more effective or stronger.

        I had striped and then brightened... but found some areas that still need more stripping after- which I just power sanded. Do these areas need to be cleaned and brightened again? Thanks

    How long should I wait to stain pressure treated wood? And when it’s time, can I just sand, clean and apply twp stain? Thanks!

        I’ve sanded a lot of my deck already to remove the stain on the flat deck surfaces, but some is real difficult to remove, like between the deck boards. I would like to use the stripper for between the deck boards, but before I do I’m wondering if the stripper will harm the already sanded flat surface of the boards? Thanks

            As you can see I’ve started sanding, but the spaces between the deck boards as well as the knots are difficult remove the stain. I just want to make sure I won’t ruin the already sanded areas by applying the stripper. Thanks

              Please advise according to the pictured deck above. What precess should I follow:
              sand, strip, brighten;
              strip, sand, brighten; or
              strip, brighten, sand

              Thanks

              It will not harm the sanded areas and actually help to open up the pores. Make sure to brighten the wood after.

                Am I able to sand if need be between the stripper and brightener applications? If I recall, I am not able while the brightener needs to be applied immediately after the stripper.

                    Okay, i thought I read that I was supposed to apply the brightener immediately after the stripper application. It is okay to let the the wood dry upon washing off the stripper application in order to sand and then apply the brightener? Thanks and last question!

                      Normally you would brighten right away but if sanding do it after. It can dry.

    I recently moved into a home with a pressure treated deck that is about 400 sq ft. It’s eight years old and appears little maintenance has been done. I know it’s a Cabot stain and I would guess semi solid or semi transparent (grayish color) Recently I used an Olympic Deck Wash and was surprised how much stain so easily washed away (please see the pictures). I am wondering what your recommendations would be to restore my deck? I appreciate your help!

        Will all the stain have to come off completely before putting down new TWP stain? I’m hoping that I may be able to use a different color than the original grayish stain. Thank you!

            I understand the brightened must be applied immediately following the stripper. Is it okay to sand difficult to remove spots of stain after the brightened application or when is the best time to sand if need be?
            • We will reply to your comment shortly
              TWP Stains · 05/21/2020
              If you have to sand then do it prior to the brightener.

    I currently have a solid water based exterior wood stain on our old deck. Can you confirm which product I need to use to strip the old stain and get it ready for re-staining? Also, do you have any retailers in Calgary, Canada?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 05/16/2020
      You cannot strip a solid stain. You will have to sand it off. Once fully removed, use the TWP 200 Series.

    Do you know if Restore a Deck Stripper will penetrate Rustoleum Restore 4X stain? I know Rustoleum Restore 4X has been taken off the market and now I need a product that will penetrate the current Rustoleum Restore 4X stain I presently have on my deck. I tried Wolman Deck Stripper and it didn't penetrate the Restore 4X. I tried sanding but chewed up several sanding belts and the sanding didn't remove sufficient Rustoleum Restore 4X. Thinking about flipping the deck boards and then sanding them and restain the deck.

      Sorry but no stripper will remove that product. You have to sand it off or flip/replace the wood.

          That looks opaque or a solid stain. You cannot strip that off completely.

            Yeah it is darker than what we thought we were getting but it was a semi transparent stain.

              I have a similar question, started with a semi-solid and not what I was looking for so coming back to TWP. If the semi-solid won’t strip off should it be sanded off instead?

    I have exterior post and trim that was stained with twp 3 years ago. It is beginning to turn black with mold. Should I use restore a deck to clean? Is a pressure washer necessary on smaller areas like post and trim?

      Yes, use the RAD Cleaner Kit for prep. You will need to pressure wash off. Apply another coat of stain when done.

    I am re-staining an outdoor patio/pergola that I think used TWP 100 Dark oak ~5 yrs ago. Do I need to use the stripper or just R-A-D? Can I just power wash with water and apply TWP 100?

      It is needed to neutralize the stripper or cleaner and restore the wood to a proper pH balance.

    I just stained one side of my log home with 1500 series in dark oak. it came out black. its way too dark. I cleaned and prepped the logs. I still have 2 more sides to go and 7 gallons of stain left. can this be removed? or can I mix my remaining stain to make it lighter? the logs were pretty old and absorbant.

      It is not possible to lighten it but this product will strip it. Brighten after.

      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?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 06/19/2019
      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.
        • We will reply to your comment shortly
          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.
