Restore-A-Deck Wood Brightener

 Back to: Deck Brighteners - Professional Grade

TWP Stain CalculatorRestore-A-Deck's brightener is used to neutralize the Restore-A-Deck Stripper and help remove mill glaze from new wood. This brightener is not a cleaner. It will not remove grayed wood fibers. It is meant to serve as a wood brightener and pH balance after using the stain stripper.

We strongly recommend it as the second part of our R-A-D restoration system. It will pH balance and brighten new wood and remove some contaminants.

Coverage is 750-1000 sq. feet per container.

Great for lightening the wood color during prep.

    I just finished power washing my deck. Not sure how old it is, but the wood looks good. It's been recommended I let the power-washed wood dry for a week or more before moving on to brightener. Would you agree? And after brightener (and rinsing the brightener), how long before I stain with a clear oil stain?

    You do not wait a week after the pressure washing to apply a brightener. Brighteners (and cleaners) are used during the pressure washing process to aid in the outcome and for better overall prep. Apply the brightener now would best.

    I contacted you earlier, but have forgotten steps to follow in restaining or sealing a deck that has has one tome sealer on it for about 6 years. Where can I find your reply or would you reanswer it?

    You will need to prep with the Restore A Deck Stain Stripper kit for this to remove the OneTime stain:

    Three decks, including steps, total
    415 sq ft. How much stain and brightener do we need? Decks 7 months old and never stained. I assume the brightened is the only prep needed.

    thanks

    You need to clean and brighten for the prep. Use the Gemini Restore Kits.

    1 Gemini Kit
    3 Gallons of Stain. Only 1 coat on new wood.

    Thanks for the prompt answer! Two more questions: 1. Should I use the stripper if there's nothing to strip?
    2. When I recoat with TWP 100 (in 2 years), do I need to do the 2 step prep?
    Thank you

    Use the Cleaner, not the stripper. When redoing in 2-3 years, you will need to prep by cleaning and brightening.

    I just pressure washed a 20yr. old cedar deck and the wood looks clean and natural colored. Do I need to use Wood Brightener on it? I'm not interested in bright wood so much as having the stain go deep into the wood and bond well.
    Thanks

    The brightener will help the stain to penetrate better into the wood.

    I've gotten some old stain mostly removed from my deck last year, but there's still a little left that needs to be stripped. Plus the deck has been sitting without stain on it for 9-12 months, so it's has some greying on it. Should I finish stripping and then use the cleaner and brightener, or just finish stripping and use the brightener?

    Finish stripping all wood then brighten. You may have to rewash the areas that have grayed.

    Do you have to cover plants and lawn around the deck when you use the stripper and brightener to protect them from any caustic reaction?

    Yes you should cover well or prewet and rinse right away any over spray.

    Jean Day:
    In the process of stripping all paint and paint film off pine siding with mix of Borax, washing soda and ammonia, I may have cleaned the wood accidentally; it looks like it, turned golden. I have a little more film to "clean off." Can I go straight to a brightener now before 100 series?

    As long as all of the old stain is removed then you should be okay.
