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

    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.

      Hi, responded to Carol Ann last week. No, best to pump spray it on for the best results.

    Do I need to scrub my deck when using the stripper and brightener or will spraying it, let it sit a few minutes and then power washing be sufficient?

          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.

    I have a pressure treated deck with two year old Rymar Wood Sealer finish. The Rymar is oil based, unpigmented, and contains parachlorobenzotrflouride and raw linseed oil. Will the Restore-A-Deck stripper remove this?

      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.

        Perfect! I was pretty sure that when I did all my research in choosing a deck stain one of the reasons I choose TWP was the versatile maintenance application! Just needed reassurance now the time is here.

    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?

    Last year I used a stain from home depot and now it looks terrible and needs to be stripped. My problem is that this is on my combination deck/dock area and I dont want to contaminate water. so my question is will this product cause a problem with the lake.

      It should not have an issue with the lake water.

    In the fall of 2015, we built a deck with pressure treated lumber. We allowed the wood to dry for about 90 days before having it professionally stained with TWP oil based Cedartone. After cleaning it last year, I stained it again. The stain does such a good job sealing the wood that water just sits on the deck and over time mold or mildew starts to grow. Is there a product you recommend to retard the growth of mold? In addition, I think I sealed some mold between the two coats. Will I have to use the stripper, power wash and brighten the deck to fix this issue/
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 09/24/2018
      You will need to strip and brighten for prep and to fix this. I believe some of your issues are due to overapplication. Only apply two light coats wet on wet.
      • We will reply to your comment shortly
        Terrance Funk · 09/24/2018
        The professionals did two light coats wet on wet and carefully back brushed everything for both coats. After cleaning I put on one light coat and back brushed it as well. I don't think it was over applied but acknowledge that could be the case. The mold grows on top and is easy to clean with cleaner and a scrub brush. I've cleaned it twice this summer Is there anything you recommend to retard the growth of mold? The deck gets full sun for about 3 hours from 11- 2 PM.

          TWP Stains · 09/25/2018
          You are only supposed to apply one coat for new wood. There is not a way to prevent mold from growing on top of a deck stain. Stains can only help to prevent the growth inside the stain.

        Deck is COVERED with “fur”. I’m planned on doing a light sand to remove the fur and stain. While I continue the process on the whole deck, will the wood pores close with time or exposure to rain? Is there anything I should do when I’m ready to stain the whole deck?

          TWP Stains · 08/28/2018
          Okay. Use a floor buffer with a sanding pad, not sanding paper. Much easier to remove it this way and leaves the wood porous. Wood pores will not close due to weather but over sanding can create this problem if you sand too fine.
