    My deck is roughly 900 sq ft with 13 steps 4' wide. The wood is 20 years old and in pretty good shape. I previously used Cabot Australian Wood Oil and Olympic stain. Cabot didn't last and Olympic wouldn't dry. 240 sq ft is covered and the rest is open. I live in NE Kentucky. I just finished cleaning the entire deck with Krud Cutter deck cleaner and a power washer. What do you suggest for staining this deck? Thanks - Jim

    Chris, you cannot use TWP on the One Time. You must remove it. Once removed, use the 1500 Series.[/quote]

    Will the RAD stain stripper remove the One Time or should it be sanded?

    It should remove it.

    Jay, you will have to remove the Cabot first. How to depends on what type of Cabot it is as they are not all the same. Northern VA and you will need 1500 Series otherwise you can use either.

    I have a four year old pressure treated pine deck around my pool on the south side in the Nashville TN area. Deck is exposed to sunlight from 9:00 AM until 5:30 PM. Used One Time wood a month after deck was completed. Wood is in good shape. Will the One Time need to be stripped or can I just wash the deck and apply TWP? Which TWP product would be best for this application?

    Age of wood 13-years
    PT pine
    Condition is good
    Previously stained with Sikens Cetol DEK
    Wood deck with rails, stairs, and pergala type room

    I'm thinking about using TWP 1500 vs. Sikens. Do I have to strip the old Sikens off? Any guidance is appreciated.

    Yes it is best to remove the Sikkens before switching to TWP. This allows the 1500 Series to soak deep into the wood grain.

    I just sent away for two of your samples. My deck will need only about 2 gallons. I know it wouldn't be guaranteed, but if I bought a 5 gallon container and stored the remainder in my basement (unfinished basement but does not get cold in winter, no lower than 50 degrees), do you think it would be okay to use for maintenance coat in one to two years? I know it's not guaranteed, but in your experience... Thanks, Wendy

    Just the RAD Stripper and Brightener. Yes you have to back brush after spraying to get a consistent application and appearance.

    25 years
    pt pine
    "Floor" of deck is greenish, verticals and small protected areas (under welcome mats, for instance) still have Behr semi-transparent acrylic from 2 years ago.
    Most of deck just needs cleaning, parts need stripping, do I need both RAD products? Also, if I apply TWP 1500 with generic garden pump sprayer, do I need to go over it after with a brush to smooth it?
    Thanks.
