    I’m preparing to restain deck. Original coat was Armstrong and recasting with same stain. I have the restore deck cleaner but not brightener. Do I need to do both or is the cleaner enough?

      Armstrong · 09/22/2021
      Best to use both as the Brightener neutralizes the Cleaner.

    What would be the process for cleaning and staining a newly built pressure-treated wood front porch flooring? The porch is covered but the house is south-facing. Also, when it rains, about 3 feet of the porch flooring perimeter still gets wet. Thank you.

    Do I need to use cleaner and brightener for a maintenance coat after two years if there is no sign of degradation to the original AC semi transparent stain? Or would just a mild soap and water clean prior to a recoat be sufficient? The maintenance video you provide shows a preparation for a failing deck surface not a maintenance coat, in my humble opinion.

      Clean and brighten is the proper way to prep when recoating.

    Will the cleaner or brightener react with aluminum? I have aluminum rails on my dock that I don’t want discolored. Thanks.

      Typically never an issue but always test spot first to be certain as they are not all made the same way.

    Can you mix less than 5 gallons at a time? I need only a gallon of mix for a small project. What would be the ratios?

    Does stripper, brightener or stain affect plants or stain natural stone or concrete unit paving stones?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Armstrong · 05/24/2021
      Cover plants. Does not harm stone or pavers.

        So any drips onto the stone or concrete can be washed off?  Even the stain will wash off?

          Armstrong · 05/24/2021
          Sorry, you have to cover all when staining. The prep will not harm the stone or bricks.

    Can you premix the cleaner hours or even days/weeks before?  The cleaner often does not dissolve completely and if I can just premix it and let it sit for a long while maybe it will dissolve better.  But I wasn;t sure if the cleaner stays potent if it is mixed and not used for hours/days.

      The Cleaner has to be used within 4-6 hours after mixing with water.

    Hi there, We stained our fence last year with AC semi-transparent Cedar. It’s held up great but I’d like to go darker in the future (likely AC semi-transparent Sierra Redwood). Can we just use the Cleaner and Brightener and then use the new stain color or do we have to do more prep for it to look even?Thanks!

      Use the stripper and brightener kit.

    Hello I have a 20 year old cedar deck, The handrails were stripped, pressure washed, then sanded with 60 grit orbital sander.  Do I need to still use both a cleaner & brightener?  Either ?   I attached a picture of the progress with handrail sanded and part yet to be sanded. And if using brightener, can I wait a week to stain as I will be out of town or don't brighten until i can stain within 48 hours? 
    I intend on using cedar semi-transparent
    Thanks

      Clean and brighten all after the sanding is done. Let dry for 48 hours to stain. Stain within 2 weeks.

    should i use the stripper mixed with booster additive to prep an old deck stained with a solid stain that is almost gone because its pealing or should i sand it down and use cleaner/brightener after sanding instead?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Armstrong · 05/15/2021
      Strippers will not remove solid stains. You will have to power sand to remove.

    I stripped my IPE deck last year.  Can I just clean it with the cleaner and brightness and then re stay it or do I need to strip it down all the way and re stain it?

      Clean and brighten is correct when using the same stain and color.

    If you have access to the underside of an elevated néw  deck , is it a good idea to stain it when you first stain the upper, exposed side?

    Do I need to strip my railing stained with water base stain before covering with Armstrong semi solid stain? It is not peeling! Can I just use the restore cleaning kit?

      You will have to remove previous coatings before switching brands of stain.

    I have 2 questions. Is it absolutely necessary to use a pressure washer when cleaning and brightening the deck or will a garden hose be okay? I plan to stain and reseal the decking and horizontal rail pieces only, which is going to make it impossible to keep the cleaner and brightener off the vertical ballasts. Is that going to effect the stain and sealer on the ballasts if I don't scrub them?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Armstrong · 04/16/2021
      Best to pressure wash. You may need to touch up the verticals in a few spots.

    My decking is cedar stained with Armstrong Clarke and the skirt is PTW with a darker stain. Would I be able to use this deck stripper, without it stripping away the stain on the skirt? I only want to clean the decking, as it now has black residue.. I don’t want the stain to come off on the skirt.

      Armstrong · 03/11/2021
      You cannot just strip the floor and not have it harm the stain on the outside skirt. You can clean the floor and the cleaner should not harm the stain on the skirt.

    Sirs,

    I live in Portland, Oregon where the my south-facing front deck is pounded mercilessly with rain and UV from south/west sun. Currently, the deck is 90% covered. The steps leading up to it don’t hold up well as Behr Deck Stain (3 yrs) is really cracking and peeling badly.

    What do I do first come springtime? What steps do I take to remove the existing surface treatment? It’s a real mess! (the underlying wood are weather-treated (womanized) deck boards.

    Thanks
    KM

        Does it have to remain above 50 degrees 24/7 for consecutive days or just while you are applying the stain?

          It can drop cooler after applying but not below freezing while the stain is wet.

    Will Restore -A-Deck Stripper Brightener kit remove water marks from unfinished Ipe? Newly installed deck will "age in" a few months before applying Armstrong Clark Hardwood/Ipe Stain. It will get some rain during that time.

      Use the cleaner and brightener kit after weathering the new wood and to restore the color.

    I have a new deck that was installed using Port Orford cedar. It was completed 8 weeks ago. The wood was kiln-dried prior to installation. Do you still recommend waiting 3-4 months, or can it be prepped/stained sooner?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Armstrong · 09/20/2020
      If kiln-dried you can prep and stain after about 2 months.

        I have stained the vertical boards but held off on the deck boards. I was concerned that some of the boards were still showing fibers. I re-cleaned and brightened a couple boards and there continues to be fuzzy spots. Is it okay to stain or is there something else I should be doing to address this?

    I have a new Alaska yellow cedar deck. The installer told me to wait a month before treating or staining it. It has started to show black spot he’s that look like mold as it has been sitting over the past few weeks. Parts of the decking have larger, darker black splotches. Should I use Restore a Deck Cleaner and brightener before using semi-transparent Stain.? Thanks

    Dallas · 08/15/2020
    The directions for Restore-A-Deck call for rinsing the deck for 20-30 minutes to remove all the suds after using the Brightener . Is it really calling for standing there for up to 30 minutes spraying water all over this small deck? That sounds like way-overkill.
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Armstrong · 08/16/2020
      Yes, you need to rinse well for 20-30 minutes to remove all suds.

    Last year we applied transparent cedar tone on our new wood siding. It still looks beautiful but we installed a darker color gable accent and would like the cedartone darkened to more closely match. Can we just apply a new transparent color on top of the existing one?

      You need to prep first with the RAD Cleaner/Brightener Kit.
