    Mark chevrier:
    Hi,

    The current coat is Thompson Cedar coat applied to a Trek-cedar deck. Floors are in Trex composite but all the column and ceiling are in cedar.
    - if I use restore a deck, any risks for the Trex (some will fall on it for sure)?
    - The Thompson did not prevent molds on the cedar. I have now a lot of black points on it. It this also remove this?

    Thanks for your help

    The Stripper should not harm the Trex and it does help to remove the mold.

    [b]Deck is 12 years old - used Sikkens about three years ago. cloudy, dark and pealing in areas. which product should I use to strip deck. Power washed and still very inconsistent with removal of stained areas. i have used your transparent stains on another property -- very happy with results. thanks for info Once we have pigment removed and are ready to redo -- what should I use to enhance deck wood and seal? thanks again. deb

    Which Sikkens was it? The SRD that is not shiny or the Cetol that is shiny like a varnish? Makes a huge difference as is if can be stripped or not? The SRD can be removed with the RAD Stain stripper and pressure washing. Neutralize with the brightener after.

    RH:
    Our deck is 2 years old (PTP). After the first 10 months, we used RAD Kit, then stained with TWP 100 - (Rustic 116) per TWP instructions. The color has faded after 14 months, so we want to re-stain with same TWP-100 (Rustic 116).

    Question: How do we prep the deck for the re-stain? Do we have to strip 1st coat of TWP 100 to re-stain with same TWP 100 color? If so, why?

    Thank you.

    No you do not need to use the RAD Stain Stripper for this scenario. Use our Gemini Restore Kit for the prep.

    I have a 14 year old Mahogany deck and have stained it every year with Cabots Mahogany Flame and switch to your TWP 1502 350VOC the last two years. I liked to strip the deck this year an apply 1502 again. What do you recommend? Process? How many coats of 1502?

    Strip with the Restore A Deck Stain Stripper and apply the brightener after. Just one coat is normal for Mahogany wood.

    My deck was previously coated with Behr Premium Solid Color Deck Stain. Will the Restore-A-Deck Stripper with a pump sprayer remove this?

    No it will not remove a solid stain. You will have to sand off a solid stain to remove.

    pyperstosh:
    I have a 15 yr old pressure treated pine deck that has some parts that were stained with a semi-transparent Behr oil stain when the deck was new. Most of it was not stained at all or sealed in any way. Should I use the stripper only on the parts that were stained and the cleaner on the remainder or use the stripper on everything? I am especially wondering about the portion that is under a roof and therefore has received less weathering. Will the stripper be too harsh on wood that has never been stained or sealed?

    Stripper on all. Brighten when done.

    RobA:
    I have a deck that has white acrylic latex paint on the rails and dark gray latex paint on floor. The paint is peeling on the floor pretty badly. The white paint on the railing seems to be adhering to the wood but is very stained with black mildew. I would like to refinish.

    What would be the best preparation and finish application. I like the white solid color for the railing. I would like to go back with a lighter gray/taupe for the floor.

    Suggestions please.

    Our products cannot be applied over paints or solid stains. Our products also do not come in white or taupe colors.

    I have just replaced my deck with new cedar 2x6 boards and hired a guy to stain it. He used TWC 207 Butternut. It is very uneven and hasn't dried in over a week.Some areas are ok but the knots and hard part of the wood is still tacky. Can ou please recommend what is necessary to strip and reapply. After reading your product bulletins, It appears that the wrong choice was made or missapplied. Please advise.

    Not easy to strip off a newly applied stain. You will need to Restore A Deck Stripper and pressure washing to remove. In addtiona it may take more then one attempt of the stripping to remove it all. Make sure to use the RAD brightener on all the wood when done. Please read this about new wood:

    Jake Jacobsen:
    Can Restore-A-Deck stripper be removed with a power washer?

    thanks,
    Jake

    After applying the RAD Stripper it is best to pressure wash off the coating that is being removed. Once fully removed, use the RAD brightener to neutralize.
