    We have a 3 year old white and red cedar deck. It had one coat of cealer two years ago which has mostly worn off. We cleaned the deck prior to the wood sealer bein applied with TSP which raised and tore the wood leaving shredded fibres in between the boards, in the corners, and around all the posts of the deck. The wood is greyed. I would like to refinish it and have it more on the red side but be able to see the natural beauty of the wood through the finish but don't know where to start. Can you advise which products to purchase and what to do with them. Thanks

    can I go from stripper to cleaner to brightener - I need 10 of each. If I buy the kits then I get 20 bottles of brightener (perhaps I only need 10)- it is a 6000 sqft redwood deck with Penofin stain. It is in a severe fire zone in Boulder County and I want the stain that replaced it to contain fire retardant. Suggestions?

    You do not need the cleaner if you are using the Stripper. Just buy the Stripper/Brightener Kit.

    hi, we are currenlty plainig down the old wood on our deck and re-using, rahter than replacing. we love the color of the wood once plained, but we know we need to seal it as we live in florida, and the dock is in full sun all day.
    do you have a selaer that is clear, rather than a stain ? i have a sample of your transparent, in natural tone, but it does change the color of the wood to a slight amberish color (darker than the wood
    s natural tone). any suggestions are greatly appreciated !!

    Clear sealers will not offer any protection from UV graying. It must be a colored stain for this to happen.

    I'm going to redo my ipe deck. I have always used Ipe oil by deckwise. It's been about 1 1/2 years since I did it last. I was thinking of trying your mahogany product this year. Should I use your stripper or your deck cleaner?
    THanks.

    If the IPE Oil is still on the wood, then use the Stripper Kit.

    Last year we bought a fixer-upper with a deck that had not been cared for for at least 10 years--and it was much older than that.

    I prepped the deck by power washing to remove the black mildew, grime, and accumulated yuck. Letting the deck dry out for several days we sprayed the deck with your semi-transparent cedar. Wow! It looked like a completely new deck.

    This year we retreated the deck following a gentle pressure washing. It looks even better now.

    Your product is the best I've ever seen for staining exterior wood. Thank you Armstrong Clark.

    Thanks for the review!

    I recently used the RAD kit on my previously unstained, 4 month old redwood deck. The kit worked very well. I am ready to apply stain, but I noticed many scuff marks on the deck (likely from careless contractors placing tools on the wood). I plan on lightly sanding the deck to remove the numerous scuff marks. Should I apply the RAD kit again after sanding? Or can I just wash off the deck with water, let dry for a few days, and apply stain?
    Make sure to sand all as spot sanding could lead to uneven application of the stain. Try to sand with no finer than 80 grit. Lightly wash with water after to remove sand dust and let dry before staining.

    I understand that AFTER the RAD kit has been applied I should "let wood dry for 2 or more days after prep." What about BETWEEN steps 1 and 2 w/ the RAD kit - does the wood need to dry after step 1 before starting step 2??

    Apply the Step 2 right after you are done with the cleaning, while wood is still wet.

    What will the stripper do to a painted surface?

    This stripper will not remove paint, unless the paint is peeling.

    Unopened cans stored in a heated garage will last indefinitely then?

    Not forever. Couple of years should be okay.

    I bought more product than I need for my deck. Will the stain still be usable in a couple of years when I need to redo the deck again?

    Depends on if opened, unopened, and how well you store it. Make sure it is stored in a climate controlled area and that there is 100% closure so there is not any evaporation.

    Can I use RAD annually before I reapply your Ipe amber stain or should I resand.

    Yes this is the best way to prep.

    We built a new pressure treated pine deck and screened porch last year in July and cleaned, brightened and applied stain in October. We want to apply another coat of stain now. I know we need to clean again but should we also brighten before applying this second coat. We used rustic brown. We have some small holes now in the screen. Could the Brightener have caused this? Thanks.

    You do not have to brighten, but you can. It does not harm screens.

    Hello,

    just finished a 20'x30' pressure treated deck...deck is located in Ontario Canada.
    your stain is highly recommended through online reviews.
    I was wondering which product of yours you would recommend and do you have any dealers in Toronto, Ontario, Canada?
    thank you for your time...

    No dealers there, but we can ship to you. Use the AC stain in any color that you like.

    I applied my sample stain color (a semi-solid) to wood that was washed, but not brightened. I have since washed and brightened the entire deck. But I wonder whether brightening affects absorption of color pigment. Will the semi-solid look slightly different if applied on brightened versus non-brightened wood? If so, will it be darker? thanks

    The brightener lightens the wood so yes the stain will look a little lighter in color once applied.

    I've just ordered your amber and mahogany samples. I have two Ipe Decks, one five years old that has never been stained and has naturally oxidized to the color of a Silver Back Gorilla and one that was built last month. I'm going to use a floor sander to prep both decks totaling about 700 sq. ft. Would not sanding negate my need for a cleaner and brightener? Thank You.

    You have to clean and brighten after sanding to open the grain and remove any sand dust. Use 80 grit or less for the sanding.
