    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.

    Hi again - I've heard that you need to stain soon after sanding and brightening, and wanted to get your feedback on our schedule. We are sanding on the 11th, followed by cleaning/brightening on the 15th and staining on the 18th. Will this be optimal? Also, how long after staining before we can return furniture and traffic to the deck? Thanks!

    Yes this will work. Wait 24-48 hours after staining to put furniture back on.

    Thanks. So I don't need to re-rinse before applying brightener? Will it hurt anything to re-rinse before applying brightener?

    You can rinse first.

    I washed PT pine deck with RAD cleaner, and then rinsed a bit. Since directions say to "rinse very well", I had intended to rinse further, but I ran out of time. I also did not have time to do brightener step. It's been a week and deck has dried quite a bit. What should I do now? Will deck be OK if I just rinse really well, apply brightener, let dry and then apply AC stain?

    Apply the brightener and rinse. Let dry for 48 hours.

    Hi – we have a 2000+ sf cedar deck, 10 years old, and are restoring it. We are replacing rotten boards now. Can you let us know if we are on the right track with our restoration plan? The deck was painted ~7 years ago with a solid acrylic paint, unfortunately, which has mostly peeled off but is still present quite a bit under covered areas. After the rotten boards are replaced we are planning to have the deck sanded to remove all paint, then have a brightener applied, then one of your semi-solid stains. Advice? Thanks!

    Yes you will need to sand to remove the solid paint, brighten, then the AC semi-solid.

    Can your wood cleaner be used in a pressure washer, and would it be okay for me to sand the deck, pressure wash using your cleaner, and then apply your stain? Also, how long do you recommend we allow the wood to dry before applying your stain?

    No the wood cleaner cannot be used in a pressure washer. Best to apply with a pump sprayer. You can sand lightly first if needed. Let dry for 48 hours after the prep

    We have a brand new PT Pine deck that was installed last November... really beautiful. We are planning on using the transparent natural stain after a thorough power-washing. Do we need to use anything else to prep the deck?

    Yes prep with the Restore A Deck Kit.

    I cleaned and power washed my deck. I am ready to stain. I want a natural wood look so I am going to use your Transparent Natural Tone. My question is I have rough areas, especially on the top rails, do I need to sand them down or will your product fill in these spots and give a smooth finish so I wouldn't get splinters?

    Armstrong Clark is a penetrating finish so it will not fill in anything. You would need to lightly sand it needed. Use 80 grit paper.

    I have a 5 year old Ipe deck that has been stained every 2 years(mostly in full sun).Last time we just power washed and used AC Mahogany color. Do you recommend doing something more than power washing for better results.

    We applied AC stain to our deck 2 years ago. It has worn in high traffic areas and needs a maintenance coat. For cleaning prior to reapplication should I use RAD cleaner at full strength? I want the whole deck to look reasonably uniform so should I re-stain the whole deck or just the worn high traffic areas?

    Thanks

    Use the Kit for all and stain all would be best.

    "If there is not any more of the old stain visibly left on the wood than use the Restore a Deck Kit for the prep. If you still have the old stain on, use the Restore A Deck Stain Stripper."

    There are some light streaks here & there of old stain still visible, so if I'm to do the RAD stain stripper will that take care of the silver/ graying as well so that I may use AC stain? Or do I need to clean & brighten too?
    Thanks
    Bryan

    If you use the stripper you do not need to use the cleaner. The stripper will remove the gray as well.

    I stained my deck last year April 2015 and this year i would like to just put another coat on it. Do i just use the wood and deck cleaner or do i also need to use the wood brightener. I do not want to take off to much off the original stain as it still looks good it just has dulled a little bit and needs a good cleaning and freshening up.By the way I've been using your products for the last 4 yrs and absolutely love it. I'm a painting contractor in St.Louis and it is my go to product.

    Thanks
    Jeff

    No need for the brightener. You can use the cleaner at 2-3 oz per gallon of water to help remove the dirt. Glad you like the stain!

    The Armstrong Clark in Natural is a light pigmented stain. If the wood is clean then go ahead and stain.

    I have an old pressure treated deck. I have used a power washer to clean it. Should I use something else before I use a stain. I want it to be clear, natural looking. What do you suggest? Thanks

    I'm a bit confused on the directions for a new (IPE) deck. I believe your recommendations are to 1) wait 2-4 months, 2) apply RAD (cleaner/brightener)

    What is the rationale to clean/brighten a newly installed deck? What would be the downside(s) to immediately stain/seal a deck after installation (1 month)?

    Thanks in advance.

    PS I've precut/layed out a 250 sq ft IPE deck and trying to decide on the right stain/sealer.

    You have to prep new wood to remove any oxidation and mill glaze. If you stain a new deck without waiting or prep, the stain will absorb less and could dry sticky/shiny on the surface.
