Questions & Answers

This product (#64) is a "stripper". does that mean that I will essrntially be stripping off the old paint?

Asked by: James
It will not remove paint very well. From other reviews, it appears to remove stains. As I suspected, my deck was painted, not stained. I went through a few gallons and hours of frustration to confirm this. As in other forums, finding the proper stripper can be trial and error, unless you know yourself what coating type was used before (I did not). I will be going with a belt sander rather than spend hours and a few hundred dollars finding the "right" stripper.

Must product/stripper be neutarlized before re-sealing?

Asked by: Miffer
Products active ingredient is Sodium hydroxide, also known as lye and caustic soda, it's an oxidizer. It a alkaline product which can be neutralized with acids like Boric, Oxalic acid bought at paint stores and typically called "wood brighteners or wood cleaners", vinegar also works full strength. All of the acid washes will need to be THOROUGHLY rinsed. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sodium_hydroxide Now you know a bit more about the chemical you're working with, let's get back to the question; Should you neutralize the product after a THOROUGH rinsing as directed on the label? Yes if you are reapplying a water-based coating and no if you're reapplying an oil-based coating.

Asked by: kendit
I have not an issue with my grass or plants dying from this product, be sure to rinse well and rinse your ground area as well. From my experience this worked.

Will this help remove previous Deck Over Stain?

I applied deck over to an older deck and some is peeling up. I want to put on a different stain that is lighter and a stain that won’t peel.
Asked by: Nick
Hi Nick, Thank you for your question, and I am sorry to hear about the peeling issue. We don't recommend using our stripper to remove our DeckOver, as it's such a thick coating. It would be best to sand off the coating. However, to help with this, please reach out to us directly; we can then look into turning this experience around for you. -Edith

1-gal. Wood Stain and Finish Stripper is rated 2.7 out of 5 by 411.

I stripped an 11 year old deck that had approximately 8 coats of semi-transparent stain that had been applied through the years. The directions tell you that the stain starts lifting in 5-45 minutes. On average the temperature was 60 degrees when I did it. I applied it liberally and left it on for 45 plus minutes and kept it misted so it didn't dry out. It started to lift but I had to repeat the process 3-4 times. (I used a pressure washer to rinse it off). On the final section, I applied liberally and left it on for almost 1 1/2 hours and it lifted almost all the layers. I applied it a second time and it removed the final layers. I used 7 gallons for a 14x26 deck. Had I left it on longer in the beginning, I probably could have used 5 gallons. I highly recommend leaving it on longer. When I decided to strip the deck, I truly didn't think I would be able to get all the layers of stain off. I am very happy with the end result.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Complete waste of money and time Bought three containers of this product to clean my deck. Had already used a drum sander to remove the majority of old stain on my deck. There were areas that are not reachable with the drum sander so I used this product thinking it would remove the stain that was left after sanding. Well , after hour of application and waiting for this product to work , it was complete torture realizing that the stain hadn’t softened or lifted from the wood. I used a pressure washer afterward and still the stain was tough to remove. Save your money , this product is a complete failure and waste of money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good Product This product works as advertised, at least for my application. I was tasked with removing a sloppy “paint job” of Sherwin-Williams Superdeck that was applied incorrectly like urethane (uggh!). Don’t attempt on a hot day - must keep damp at all times. I lightly water sprayed prior to mandatory scrubbing to make it easier to pull up the oil-based finish. I had to reapply in a few places that had excessive finish. I used a LOT of water to removed the goop that comes off. I will complete the process with a light sanding 60-80 grit, then use of Behr ‘Brightener/Cleaner (haven’t used this yet). Tools I used to make the job easier: plastic paint pan, 3/8” nap roller, extension pole, stiff plastic brush, garden hose with a quality ‘jet’ nozzle. On a side note: as a professional deck and fence contractor, I recommend that you do yourself a favor and avoid all topical transparent finishes (acryllics). Oil based products such as Penofin are your best bet for a lasting finish. Be absolutely certain to wipe off all excess product after adequate dwell time and prior to drying and you are good to go.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from not for solid stain One coating, wait and hour, strongly rinse. Repeat at a later date. No change. Well, that's not true. My deck looks so clean, but it is completely ineffective as a stripper.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT PURCHASE !!!! I would not even give this product a 1 star! We got this product from Home Depot and the gentleman in the paint department who said he had worked for 25 yrs recommended this product after showing him a picture of our front steps. I followed the directions and I put a very thick coat on did not let dry out . I did it before the sun came around to front of home as well. I was furious it did not even touch it the deck broom recommended did nothing .. I was so mad ended up using the pressure on high and of course some came off .. I used pressure washers on side step that had not been treated with product and took same amount of paint off.. was a waist of time, money and my day!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The secret is how wet and how long! I too was skeptical after reading reviews about this product and because previous experience with similar products has confirmed that these things just don't work as expected. However, I was more than delighted at the results after I worked with the Stripper for a short time. I realized that the secret was wetting the deck, applying the stripper, waiting for it to turn "white" and then rewetting, not misting, wetting! It seems to work its best when allowed to sit with a very wet surface. And also by applying with a roller which spread it evenly and not too thin, not too thick. Also saved time! Yes there were a few small areas that needed a second treatment, but it literally power washed off. My results were very satisfying, I was removing two applications of deck stain, that were applied over a ten year period on a 30 year old deck. It actually did what it said it would do and I would certainly recommend it to others.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from UGH-how to get Behr Solid Color Prem Wood OFF Initially I used a orbital sander to remove the Behr Premium Wood Coating Solid Color stain we have on our 20 year old deck. Didn't even touch the stain that was on the deck. Then used the Wood Stain & Finish stripper as instructed TWICE! I used a stiff bristle brush and scrubbed, a small wire brush and a scrapper to no avail. I've already spent hours trying to get this deck prepped to re-stain and I'm no further ahead than when I started. How do I get this product off the wood? We have had to put multiple layers of the Behr Solid Color stain over the years because it continually peeled and cracked.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I was really impressed! I have a 4 ipe decks with stairs -- 3 levels in back and a newer front porch. In back I had several layers of gunky sealer (so much so that it looked more like Trex than wood!). This product did a great job of stripping all of the sealer (mostly Ipe Oil) from the decks. I had to reapply in spots, but it worked well. My technique: (1) Let it sit, spraying it occasionally with water until you'r ready to start scrubbing to keep it from getting dry, (2) bathe a patch with water, (3) scrub the patch with a scrub brush until it looks like an oily residue, (4) wash it away with a jet spray from your hose (lots and lots of rising required!). Not sure what this will do to my nearby plants. It says to cover them, but I know dirty water got into them anyway. I will let you know in a couple of months (if I can update this review!)
