Great stripper for prepping. The brightener restores wood grain and color.

    I live in a 3,200 sq ft cypress log home with 14,00 sq ft of outside vertical surface with significant mildew and UV damage but no wood rot. It has been stained twice between 2008 and 2015 with TWP 1500 honeytone purchased from you.. I have bought from you the cleaner/brightener kit and tested the cleaner at 15 & 30 minuet stay times and the longer time is better using a nylon brush with lite to medium brushing. Of course we will be using a power washer at 1,000 psi for the project. Can we expect similar results with the washer as we see with the brush.


    Also can we expect better results using the gel(is the gel free with stain purchase) and booster and is the booster just as safe for landscaping as the cleaner is or do we need to take special precautions?!

    As you know this will be an expensive purchase given the sq ft. I saw on the site that some discount is possible? If so how do we take advantage of it?

    I am sure we have an account but Ican't find our password, HELP!

      Pressure washing with the cleaner will be better and easier than using a scrub brush. The Gel and Booster only work with the Stripper and are not free.

      Your order in 2012 and the prep kit form 2019 was checked out as a guest so best to do that again or create a new account. We currently do not have any discounts.

    Used Defy semi transparent stain for the last 2 applications and I think that TWP will repel water for 2 years whereas Defy was barely good for one year. Does your stripper remove Defy? The deck is old redwood.

    Hello. We recently purchased a home with rough sawn cedar siding. It's clearly been a while since it received any attention. We are having the rotted boards replaced in a few weeks. From there, we plan to strip, brighten, and stain. Will your stripper take care of the existing stain, from what you can tell in these photos? Thanks.

      Not sure if the stripper will work to remove all of this as it looks like as semi-solid or solid in color. That means it is harder to strip and being vertical, that makes it even more difficult. Do you know what brand of stain this is? If you want to try the RAD Stripper on this, make sure to use the Booster and Thickening Gel additive.

        Thanks for the follow up and suggestions. With the house being 30 years old, it’s hard to know exactly what brands have been used. I did find two in the basement when we moved in & I tested some samples to dry. It looks like the Sherwin Williams Woodscapes matched the siding. The woodsman matches the patio.

            That is not an easy product to remove since it is a custom mix water-based stain and really is closer to a semi-solid in color.

              Thanks for the follow up, and that’s certainly a bummer. Can you recommend a path forward in terms of cleaning and staining (in the event we cannot remove it).

                If our stripper does not remove it then no stripper will. That leaves the option of having a professional corn cob blast to remove or covering it with a solid color deck stain. It may be work to at least attempt the stripping.

                  Hello again. I used the stripper and brightener on a spot, and it looks like it's doing the trick. This is one spray of stripper, rinsed, followed by a round of brightener, rinsed, and about 2 hours of drying time. Please note the third photo, where it looks like some of the original stain is deep in certain types of grain. The first two show comparison of siding treated with stripper/brightener product vs. untreated. Would a second round of stripper work on the issue in the third photo, or is this something we won't be able to get out with the stripper product? Thanks as always for your advice.

                    That most likely will not come out with stripping or anything else. Overall it is working well.

    Hi, I have done a lot of work trying to strip my deck since your answer last week but i am very discouraged. I am attempting to remove Pratt & Lambert Stain Shield semi transparent stain applied about three years ago.
    I took your advice and used the pump sprayer for stripper, applied full strength, generously, made sure it did not dry, scrubbed it after 20 minutes and then power washed it off at 30 minutes. It was partially stripped so I repeated the process. I have about 450 sf of deck and stairs and have used half a package on this small area applying generously two times! At this rate it will take a lot.
    The random small area in the last photo on a stair was just sanded, no stripper, as a test. Please let me know what you think, or if it’s something I just have to bite the bullet and hire a professional ($).

      Are you using the stripper additives? These are designed for difficult to remove coatings: https://www.twpstain.com/wood-stain-strippers/rad-stripper-additives

      You can let the stripper sit on the wood for up to an hour to loosen up the stain. Keep misting it with water from drying. It is coming off and it will be much less expensive than hiring a pro to do it if you have time and can be patient with this hard to remove coating.

    This is a follow-up question from CarolAnn on 05/16/19 asking for clarification on your website stating that your stripper can be applied using a power sprayer? Your answer to me is to apply the stripper with a pump sprayer (which you say uses more stripper on your site) I was fully intending to use the power washer but now I’m confused whether I can or not. Please help me out.

          That looks like a solid stain on the floor. If it is, that cannot be stripped fully. You will need to sand as well to get it all off.

              You can use the stripper to remove as much as you can. Apply a pressure wash off. Let dry and sand the rest. Apply the brightener when done.

    On 5/9 you responded to customer Rick “You apply the stripper and brightener with a pump sprayer, not the pressure washer. After applying the stripper/additives, pressure wash off.”
    but your information on this page states Restor a deck the first and only .....IS DESIGNED TO BE INJECTED WITH A PRESSURE WASHER. This is not very clear could you please explain?

    I plan on using a power washer to apply your stripper and your brightener along with using your stain stripper booster. Will these products harm my vinyl siding
    on my house? Also, will it harm the plants around the deck?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 05/09/2019
      You apply the stripper and brightener with a pump sprayer, not the pressure washer. After applying the stripper/additives, pressure wash off.

      They do not harm vinyl. It can burn leaves of plants so best to cover and rinse with water when done.

    Last summer, I install new deck flooring with with pressure treated deck lumber, and plan on using TWP 1500 for staining this summer. The 2 X 6 trim boards around the edge of the deck are still intact and are stained with a solid brown stain that is probably a few years old. What would you recommend I use to strip and restore the trim? It appears that your stripper does not cover solid stain.

      TWP Stains · 05/01/2019
      You cannot remove a solid stain with a stripper. The easiest thing to do is a two-toned deck. Solid stain on the areas already solid stains and TWP for the newer floors.

      It is best to neutralize the stripper with the brighter as soon as you are done with the stripping.

    Very large cedar deck encircles our above-ground aluminum pool. Perimeter of the deck is vinyl fencing. Deck was stained w/ semi-transparent CWF years ago. Started sanding the surface last year but weather in PA didn’t cooperate (very rainy) so I never finished. It’s also impossible to remove stain between the boards. 1. Have you received any feedback on whether your prep products would damage the aluminum pool or vinyl fence? What would I need to do to change to TWP? Buying the products and testing them seems like an expensive way to go.
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 04/13/2019
      All of the current CWF will need to be removed by stripping and or sanding. Brighten the wood when finished. The prep products should not damage the fence. There may be a color reaction with the aluminum but that would depend on your aluminum, not the prep.

    TWP Maintenance application? I used TWP 1500 on my new deck last year. The cedar was weathered over the winter. We used a brightener & then sanded 5 days later and applied TWP at beginning of June when there was no rain in forecast. Deck looked great all summer long. This Spring the deck surface is worn, faded and not repelling water well. Can we reapply another coat over top or will we have to strip, brighten & sand the deck surface Again? I am totally surprised at how the TWP did not hold up after 1 year. If we have to strip we will be using a different product to see if it will hold up better to the elements. TWP has held up well on verticle surfaces but not the horizontal (deck surface).

      Clean and brighten for prep is the proper way to do a maintenance coat.

    We need to treat 5 cedar garage doors (17' x 7'). They were previously stained with a PPG stain product which I believe was water-based. TWP 100 Semi-trans appears to be an appropriate stain to use for longer life. Am I correct in that we should power strip with RAD stripper followed by RAD brightener?
