I have a cedar garage door that was stained about 10 years ago - semitransparent stain (unknown brand)but there is no shine or varnish. What is the best stripper/method?
I have a new pressure treated deck that is 4 months old now (wood was also kiln dried) What is recommended way to get the information stamps that are on the wood off? And do I need to use the stain stripper on new wood?
I am stripping Defy Epoxy Fortified Semi-Transparent stain (now called Defy Extreme)from my deck. Will RAD Stripper remove this stain?
Also, the deck adjoins to the home with solid stain on wood siding. What prep do I need on this siding to protect it?
I have stainless steel railing that I am unable to remove. Will the stain remover and brightener damage this, and if so how can I prevent that?It will be impossible not to get stain on the steel.
Our pine siding has black mold specks/stains throughout. 2 questions:
1. Should we bleach siding prior to using stripper or will the stripper itself take care of the mold.
2. Will we need to mask the aluminum trim on all the windows, or is stripper harmless to painted aluminum.
I am going to remove the existing stain and clean and sand my deck before staining. Do you recommend using the stripper in addition to the kit 1&2?
Is there any other way to apply this other than a power washer or pump sprayer? Confused about how many square feet this covers, is it 200, 500 or 1,000.
I have a 320 s.f. deck that was stained using Behr Acrylic "Penetrating" stain. The Behr product never did penetrate bu has a "waxy' feel on vertical surfaces. It's failed and peeled on all horizontal surfaces. Will Restore-A-Deck remove this Behr Product?
I have a 10+ yr old 400sq ft cedar deck. Recently sanded and stained with cabot semi transparent stain (5 yrs ago). Time to refinish again. Still has some solid stain in deep knots that won't come up without significant sanding from before previous job. Can you recommend prep and stain product?
Will the Restore-A-Deck Stripper and Remover remove a spar urethane clear semi gloss coat (peeling)?[/quote]
No it will not. You will have to sand that.[/quote]
My contractor is telling me he can not remove all of the polyurethane, even using 80 grit sand paper. Some of the boards have cupped, making it difficult to remove the polyurethane. He wants to use a "super stripper". I am very reluctant to allow him to use a stripper. He raised a concern about sanding the wood too smooth, closing the wood pores. I have told him I don't care if the rough cut cedar is sanded smooth to remove the cupping and would rather see the wood sanded than using a stripper. Please let me know your thoughts. Thanks!
