Has a cedar stain on it now that has just worn away. Some split boards and snags which I heard this 'Restore' was good for that.

Answer: 
I think you are confusing two products. Restore which resurfaces, like a heavy paint coating, and Restore Cleaner. I recommend using the Restore Cleaner prior to recoating your deck with any type of stain or paint. You will have to brush scrub the surface or use a lower pressure, pressure wash nozzle (40 degree). I do not have any experience with Restore.

Answer: 
Deck stain won't stick well to very dirty or moldy areas so yes, you need to clean your deck before applying deck paint/stain. A power washer may be required but not always.

Answer: 
No, you do not have to. But if you want the paint job to last, it is a good idea to use a product like this. As with any painting or staining job, the better job of preparing the surface, the better the results.

Based on your description, I would most certainly prep the surface with this product. If you can gain access to a pressure washer I recommend this as opposed to using elbow grease :-) 2nd I would recommend using a 5" orbital sander if you have access to one and slap on a few scrubbing discs... ask the guys with the orange vests to assist in locating the right ones :-) after power washing, proceed to remove any scaling of the stain and or wood fibers / splinters etc... Remember! no matter how strong your coating is... if your substrate or surface coating below is spalling / delaminating.... so will the new coating no mater how strong or thick it is... So the question remains... how intact is your existing substrate now ? any flaking needs to be removed, your choice on how you want to go about doing that :-) then I would proceed with the "Deck Over Concrete Cleaner" as per instructions. Make sure that you do not allow a long laps in time from your prep phase to your initial coatings phase, environmental interference can cause failure between processes... I hope this was helpful, in short why would you skip using a preparatory product and take a chance ? your coatings will only and will always remain to be as good or as strong as your preparatory work...

We do recommend using Deck & Concrete Restore Cleaner prior to applying Deck & Concrete Restore to your surface. Before application of Deck & Concrete Restore, your surface must be clean, dry and free of dirt, grease, mildew, organic growth, and other contaminants to ensure proper bonding and adhesion. Smooth and/or glossy surfaces should be sanded or roughed up to aid in adhesion. For best results use a pressure washer to remove embedded dirt and grime. For grease and oil spots use tri-sodium phosphate (TSP) according to manufacturer’s directions to remove stains. For mildew and other organic growth use a diluted solution of household bleach (3 parts water to 1 part bleach) applied to the surface before cleaning. Read Less

Answer: 
I think product label says 2,000 sq. ft. Depending on quantity applied you should easily cover 1,500 sq. ft. on a flat surface. Less when doing railings.

Answer: 
Label says that coverage is larger than the Behr cleaner but you need to use a more concentrated dilution. Very dirty areas may require full strength scrubbing and a power washer.

A little of this product goes a long way, but if you have heavier stains I would treat it twice. I cleaned my 10'x12' deck and 3 steps which run the entire 12' length and still have about 2/3 of a bottle left.

Deck and Concrete Cleaner is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 48.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cleaner works well Purchased product to clean large uncovered deck, stairs and railing, all cedar and last cleaned 7 years ago. 7 years of Pacific NW weather generates lots of moss, mold, mildew and failed stain/sealer. Used 40 degree pressure washer nozzle, after application per instructions, some areas close to house were hand scrubbed. Product is not just hose off but works well and restored wood color, too. A jug makes 8 gallons, very economical.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fence cleaning Although this product seemed to work, it took a lot of work and effort. High pressure power washer worked much better by itself.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from DECORATIVE CONCRETE CONTRACTOR REVIEW Okay..... so after reading many of the reviews for this product I felt it necessary as a professional contractor to chime in and give my two cents for what it's worth. Keep in mind folks that this product is a preparatory product NOT! an end product to produce sparkly "Mr. Clean" results transforming blemished decks and concrete pads into newly looking surfaces. To remove moss and stains from concrete entirely takes profiling the surface with mechanical etching equipment, same goes for wood decks to remove scaling of old paint ( mechanical equipment being different for each surface mind you ) So this product is not intended as an end product but is to serve as a preparatory product to recondition the chemical composition of a concrete slab to stabilize the PH in the concrete while at the same time removing as many foreign particulates as possible... "chemically profiling" NOT! "mechanically profiling" the substrate... While other processes require you to purchase a 1. a cleaner 2. a degreaser 3. chemical profiler 4. a chemical neutralizer... This product with LOW ! V.O.C. has all the above in one unit... Compare that to other industrial specific products and the Value of this "concentrated" product is superb. As far as performance ALL! substrates are different from one to the next... so while others will require a simple chemical prep, others may require mechanical prep and sorry to be the one to break that news to you but thats the brass tacks facts... NOW ALL THAT SAID! for the money "value" and what this product is intended to do " chemically prep " & balance the PH in the concrete... this product does the job it was designed to do... Follow up with the appropriate coating and you will increase your chances of a superior bond and decrease your chances of bond failure which many coatings products get a bad name because individuals do not "PREP" properly... your coating will only be and will always remain to be as good or as strong as your prep work.. Also keep in mind that for concrete it is a very good idea to look for an efflorescent or MVB ( moisture vapor barrier ) in liquid form to apply to the slab after prep but before your coating... this is the number one cause of spalling or delaminating of the coating of which the coating product get a bad wrap... SEE WHERE I AM GOING WITH ALL THIS. ? it's not the product often times it's usually the operator... Sorry if you disagree but that is my two cents...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A little goes a long way It's too bad this wasn't available in a smaller bottle. At 1 cup to a gallon, I have most of the gallon left after cleaning a 200 sq ft patio in preparation for the Restore. It did the job well, and the Restore X10 has remained intact on the patio, so I'm glad I used the cleaner as instructed. After diluting, I sloshed it all over the patio and used a good push broom to scrub the surface in both directions, then hosed it away with a high pressure nozzle. I suspect I can use the remainder to just clean my driveway really well some day, even though I don't plan to coat it with Restore.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked for me! I had a 6-year old deck that was in dire need of cleaning & refinishing. Decided to take on the project this weekend after buying this cleaner almost a year ago. I used a pump sprayer and a large broom -- the stuff started working immediately. I did need to scrub a little in the worst places, but this deck was filthy. I couldn't believe the difference.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Purchased to clean my wood deck pre instructions from Rustoleum I'm sure this product is good if you are trying to get ride of mold or before painting a deck if you haven't pressure washed the deck. However, I pressure washed my deck rather well. I called Rustoleum customer service and they said it was like Washing your dishes without soap if you didn't use this prep. Well, if I pressure washed my dishes I know they would be clean. This prep works well on siding, the deck, I really didn't see any results. This prep was used before application of Rustoleum's Restore 10X Advanced. The newly painted deck looks great, the Restore 10X Advanced is worth the money.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Save a trip... ... if you have bleach and detergent at home. I found no advantage to using Restore ($1.50/gal of finished product) to clean my deck compared to a home-mix of water, bleach and liquid laundry detergent (<$1/gal of finished product). Of course, if you have to go get bleach or detergent, then it's a wash. Get it? Hmmm. Crickets.
