DESCRIPTION
Restore-A-Deck Wood Brightener is a biodegradable, powdered concentrate that is mixed with water to brighten and restore the natural beauty of all species of exterior wood. This product excels at brightening, removing rust stains, and tannin stains caused by fallen leaves. Restore-A-Deck Wood Brightener is a safe, product that will not only brighten but neutralize the surface of the wood, creating an ideal surface that is ready to be stained.

This product is step 2 of the Restore A Deck system.

WHERE TO USE
Restore-A-Deck Wood Brightener is intended for use on all types of weathered, exterior wood surfaces including decks, fences, siding, outdoor furniture, gazebos, and playsets.

Recommended for surface preparation prior to initial application of semi-transparent finishes and stains. The product can be used as a cleaner and brightener for redwood, or as a neutralizer to further brighten wood species, like pine, that have been cleaned with Restore-A-Deck Wood Cleaner or stripped with Restore-A-Deck Stain Stripper. For lasting protection of your exterior wood, after using Restore-A-Deck Wood Brightener, treat the surface with Restore-A-Deck Premium Wood Stain.

    I recently power washed a small redwood deck. It's stripped of all dirt and stains. Can I just apply brightener without using cleaner first before staining?

    Yes that would be fine.

    Our redwood deck is 20 years old. It has been treated with Penofin. It is now gray and dirty. What are the steps we need to do so we can use TWP1500 on the wood? Will using the RetoreADeckCleaner prep the deck and the we apply the TWP1500? What should we purchase. Thanks.

    You would need to remove the Penofin with the Restore A Deck Stripper and Brighten after with the RAD Brightener. This will prep for the TWP.

    Yes it should remove the One Time stain. Always brighten after using the RAD Stripper. You apply with a pump sprayer but you do need to pressure wash off.

    I applied ONE TIME deck stain several years ago on approx. 1400 sq ft of deck.
    FYI: I DO NOT recommend this product.
    Will the stripper remove this product?
    I assume I should use the brightner after?
    I imagine I will need 2 of each for 1400 sq ft?
    I have a pressure washer but it sounds like applying this with a pump sprayer is better since it will be less diluted?
    Thanks in advance.

    Kathie, after sanding the wood you need to prep the deck with a cleaner and wood brightener. This will remove sand dust and "open" the wood pores so the stain is able to penetrate better. do not sand with a finer grit than the 60 paper.

    I have a deck with a stain that is peeling off. It did this within 3 months of the new finish. Had three dogs that helped peel up the finish! This stain is not very transparent. Almost looks like paint. Could I just sand the deck down and then apply the TWP100 stain. I don't see that using the "restore a deck stripper and brightener" are necessary. Would that work for me. Also it is only the surface deck that needs refinishing, slightly less than 200 sq'

    Kim T, yes you need to brightener to neutralize the caustic of the stripper. Your stain will look better and last longer!

    I am going to be staining our deck. It has stain on it that I want to remove. I am going to order the deck stripper, but if I am going to stain it again, do I need the wood brightener as well?

    Thanks so much!

    The RAD brightener is applied with a garden sprayer. Let dwell for 15 minutes, than rinse off.

    Yes on the 100 Series or the 1500 Series.

    I have just pressure washed my 10 year old #2 pine 2X6 board deck after applying a wood cleaner. The gray is gone and deck now looks like natural wood. I want to brighten the natural wood look and then add a preservative. How is your Restore-a-deck brightner applied? And should I follow it with you 100 product? Thanks

    I'm very happy to say that the RAD stripper worked like a charm! Took off the opaque "semi transparent" stain I never liked. I won't be able to use the brightener until next weekend. Will it hurt to wait a week or so to neutralize the stripper with brightener?
