We appreciate your input, so feel free to leave a comment below, ask questions, and pictures of your completed projects if you have them.
Watch this video to find out whether you should use a stain stripper or wood cleaner to prepare your deck for stain. If your wood deck has a weathered solid stain, or an unweathered semi-transparent stain use a deck stain stripper to remove these products. If the semi-transparent stain is faded and graying, then an oxygenated bleach wood cleaner will work.
I have a porch made out of raw pine lumber. It was sealed with Lumber-Seal product, Can you tell me if I’ll need to use your stripper before staining? The Lumber-Seal is flaking off since it was applied in 2015. I also want to note that I have TREX decking on the porch and don’t want to ruin it.
Yes, strip and brighten. Does not harm Trex.
Will defy hurt vinyl railing if stripper is splashed on while spaying off stripper?
It should not but rinse over spray right away.
After using the stripper there is some stain still remaining on the rough-sawn wood siding. I am planning on applying a second coat of stripper. Is okay for wood to dry before applying second coat of stripper (large project) and then apply brighter after last coat of stripper?
We are using the stripper to try to get off Cabot semi-transparent stain. We did one coat and it’s stubborn in many spots. I’m going to do a second coat. If they’re is stain left after this, do we sand it now or do the Brightener then sand?
Do we sand before applying Brightener or after?
Before is best.
How is it around cats and dogs , the stripper
Keep them away while using it. Once the wood and surrounding areas dry, there are not any issues.
