I spray the deck with a pressure washer and get it nice and wet, then I put the stripper in a 5 gal bucket and with a stiff deck brush apply the stripper in small areas , about 6x6 feet. There are 2 version of this product with different colored containers and different labels. Artisan Building Restoration Products are blended with the most effective ingredients, combining ease of use, safety and the environment.
Set a Reminder and we'll send you an email when it's time to stock up on items you buy regularly or seasonally, like air filters, fertilizer or mulch. We have been retaining our deck with a solid stain at least 3 times a year because after a few months it’s starts chipping again! This effective product strips away sealers, water proofers and 100% acrylic stains and finishes. You could see the stain start to lift off the deck, used a garden hose to rinse, just the pressure from the hose rinsed all the material off along with the stain.
Allow product to rest, apply light mist of water (garden hose works great) to keep it from drying.
The working version is an opaque, goopy, viscous liquid that worked well, the other version is a transparent, thin liquid that barely worked at all. If I could rate them as separate products I'd give the working version 4 or 5 stars (my first time trying to strip stain from wood, I don't have anything else to compare to) and the non working version 1 star. In about 5 years you’ll regret painting those spindles with every ounce of your being.
Then just buy a semi transparent stain and you will just have to touch it up when it fades. This deck stain and sealer remover will remove most oil and latex based finishes including: clear film-forming varnishes, polyurethanes, solid color and semi-transparent stains. Followed the rinse off with hot water and oxi-clean mixed in a bucket and used a stiff brush to scrub the wood for the bleached effect.
I used it to remove a transparent stain and weatherproofing from pine deck railings and spindles and it took it down to nearly new wood.
An associate at home depot recommended the behr wood stain and finish stripper to remove the old stain on my railings prior to re-staining. Then I go back and scrub with brush after about 30 mins of dwel time keep the area wet by misting.
I had been honestly thinking of just belt sanding the entire thing and boy the thought of that was not good!
My deck was painted – would I just use regular paint remover instead of that Flood stuff? I would have been happy to just have it lift a few shades but was amazed at how well it worked.
I worked about a 5 foot section at a time (using a paint brush) front and back and left it on about 5 minutes after finishing. The only option I have now is to take several weeks sanding down the entire deck railing or using a deckover product to completely cover it.
This may be my only option as I cannot get the white stain removed from the corners no matter what I do.
Not sure why home depot would carry this product as I have seen several similar complaints online.
I didn't have the jug mixed well and the first section was runny when applied but it worked just as well. After seeing how well it worked I can only surmise that the one star reviewers who claimed it didn't work were not using it for it's recommended use.
