    I have a IPE table with 8 chairs. There was a stain applied ( table new to me so unsure of stain ) but stain is failing& easy to sand off. I want to strip stain then do a natural coating in “Flood CWF for hardwoods “ for I want the wood protected but like the softer color of it natural. Would your stripper and brighter remove this old stain ? I have downloaded photo as I started to sand already. The chairs are going to be the hardest part so looking for a stripper to do those too.

    I have a cedar deck that is about 10 year sold. Part of it, deck, railings, and stairs, has never been stained but the balusters have been stained. The deck has turned grey, dirty, and the stain is coming off of the balusters. I am going to pressure wash, sand, prepare, and protect it with AC semi-transparent stain.

    You have the Restore a Deck Cleaner and Restore a Deck Stain Stripper. Based on the description the RAD Cleaner would be good for the parts that have never been stained and RAD Stain Stripper would be good for the previously stained balusters. But it means getting two RAD products. Will the RAD Stain Stripper work well also on the never before stained wood - just as a cleaner, or should I get both products?

    And should I sand the stained balusters before spraying with the RAD Stain Stripper or will it take care of the stain?

      Get both for best results. As for the balusters, can you reply with a picture?

        Thanks for the reply. The pictures show the deck, some balusters that have a lot of exposure to sunlight, and some that are facing northern side

          I am not sure the stripper will remove all of the stain on the balusters as it looks opaque and a stripper will not remove a solid stain. You may be able to get oof a lot but you may also need to sand as well.

            Thanks. What should be the order - start with the stripper and then sand what does not come off, or sand the balusters first and then use the stripper to remove anything that may be left? Or maybe the cleaner will work better after sanding? I have sanded one of the balusters, just to see how it goes.

              Strip off what you can and then sand the rest off if needed.

    The tone of it is most like the darkest picture. Its very bright outside so the pictures aren't 100% accurate

      We would not suggest another coat. More is not better and you could have issued with proper drying if you do it now.

    HI another question. That first coat absorbed really quickly. I would really like to do another light coat this week. Do I have to condition it with your product (I ran out) or is cleaning it with water sufficient. Thanks!

      You do not want to over apply. Please post a picture to see if it can take another coat or not.

    Hi There. I just completed my large, back deck which is made of red cedar. I used the stripper, brightener and the rustic brown semi transparent stain. I have to say that these products are absolutely incredible to use. I am very happy with the way they worked. I did end up sanding after brightening because of the fuzzing that happened with the cedar. It was new last year and I only got half of it done at the time so the wood was weathered which is probably why the grain was raised. The only negative comment I would have is that the color did not turn out at all the way I thought it would. It is extremely red, almost orange. I am not a fan of the color although my family seem to think it is ok. I realize that wood can be unpredictable and this is not a fault of the product. I would like to put another coat on right away as It does look better on a sample board with another layer added. Since the stain was absorbed quite quickly, within and hour to 4 hours with no residue after 24 hours I am hoping it would be ok to add another coat? Is there an option of going over it with a darker color in the future? Thanks!

      Yes. Just make sure it is a light coat this year. For the future, you can go darker as well.

    I have another question. Do you have an info as to how the products work in the harsher Canadian climate. Our summers can be very hot and dry and winters are extremely cold sometimes to -35 Celsius. I also am wondering about the stripper. I cant seem to find any info as to what the steps are in the use of it. Can you provide that. You advertise 3 day shipping. Is that 3 days into Canada as well?
