    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.

      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.

            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.

    We have Sikkens Cetol DEK Finish on our deck that has peeled badly. Have sanded most of the old stain off the deck, but where shaded and protected was difficult to completely remove and some remains. Will your stripper remove this (and what product) or do we have to do heavier sanding?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 06/12/2018
      The stripper will not remove Sikkens DEK. No stripper will :(

      Heavier sanding will be needed.

    Cabin siding below the deck that I plan to strip with Deck Restorer. How do I prevent the stripper from affecting the wood siding below the deck.

      Try tarping really well. That is your best option.

    I'm preparing to stain my log home with TWP 1500 and plan to use the RAD products to prep it. I already used bleach to clean off most of the mildew (probably an unnecessary step now that I plan to use the RAD stripper - see attached photo.) Do you have any other or different recommendations?

      The current stain will need to be removed before using the TWP. Do you know what is the brand of stain on there now?

        Yes. I believe it was a Diamond Vogel semi transparent oil stain.

          The RAD Stripper should work on this. Make sure to use the Step 2 brightener when you are done.

    We used TWP on our ipe deck two years ago, and I ended up not liking the color we chose (too red). Would this work to strip the rest of the old color out before picking a different color?

    I stained my deck in 2009 with a Cabot semi-solid (I think) stain. Will the RAD cleaning system do the job to allow me to use a TWP product? I’m in northwestern Michigan with northern exposure on my deck. Thanks!

      A stain stripper will not remove this. You will have to power sand to remove.

    I have a 20 year old deck that was stained very 2-3 years using clear and/or semi-transparent. Usually pretty good results. Last year I used semi-solid color and results are terrible. Lots of peeling and inconsistent color. Will your stripper remove semi-solid, water based Olympic stain?

    We have a second story deck. Will this stuff mess up concrete below the deck on the first floor? What about left over product? Will there be a lot of left over junk from the process below the deck? Our kids use the patio under the deck every single day. Is this safe? Does the house on the first floor also need to be protected?

      Wondering if you did this yet...we have the same situation and I want to seal the stamped concrete under our deck after the deck is done. Any recommendations are welcomed! Thanks

      The stripper and brightener will not harm the concrete. You will need to rinse the house and patio below the deck to remove the dirt and old stain that was removed from the deck above. Once everything dries, it is okay to use the area.

    We have stripped the old stain a section at a time after work. Is it too late or worth the effort to brighten the next day after deck is dry?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 04/10/2018
      You should still apply the brightener even a day or two later.

    Hello, I hope this isn't a redundant question....so many comments....If I am to sand, do I strip, let dry, sand then brighten?
    Sanding is for any wood greying or removing whatever troubles that arise during or after stripping.
    Thanks

    Jim W. Smith:
    Am I clear on this? I mix RAD stripper with brightner, spray on with power washer at the same time. What mixture of RAD and brightner do I use per 5 gallons of RAD. I plan on using TWP 1500 stain to finish job. What color of TWP do you recommend to replace Superdeck 7100 amberhue for the longest life?
    Thanks for your help.

    Jim 661 548 6761

    The stripper and brightener are not mixed together. They are two separate steps. If you click the pictures on the products you will see the instructions.

    Not sure on the super deck color as we do not sell their brand.

    Hi, I applied Thompson Water Seal to my DF deck boards. Will this remove the sealer and also allow me to install the 1500 series?
    Also what is the natural color? Is it actually a clear or is there a tint to it?

    Yes, it will remove the Thompsons. Natural is tinted, not clear.

    I see that I need a powerwasher to use the Restore-a-Deck stripper. What PSI do I need to do the job? My deck is ipea wood and I am trying to remove the old ipea oil that was used when it was installed.

    Best to wash at about 1500-2000 psi.

    Frank Zelham:
    After using the stripper and rinsing with power washer, how long can you wait to use the brighter to neutralize it?

    Apply the brightener right away while the wood is wet.
