    I tried asking this on the product page but it got removed. I have a porch that was stained with a water based Permachink deck stain. I was interested in the HD80 considering what it costs for 3000 sf coverage but was wondering why you don't recommend it for home owners? What would you recommend instead for diy? Thanks.

    I am curious as to whether the product is available for purchase in-store in Bloomfield, MI. (Restore a deck stripper & brightener) We live just south of Monroe, MI & are afraid the roduct will not arrive by the weekend.

    Thanks.

    Sorry but it is not possible to strip this product. You will have to sand it completely off the wood.

    I bought a house where the previous owner painted the deck with Olympic Rescue It. What should I use to remove it and start over? I am leaning toward HD80.

    Yes you will need to strip. Coverage is accurate. Brighten the wood is needed after to neutralize.

    I have a 600 sq ft deck that was treated with DEFY semi transparent stain 2 years ago. I was to lazy to re-stain it last year even though it look horrible. It is mostly worn off where the sun hits, however about 1/4 of it is under roof and still intact. I plan on using Olympic semi solid elite deck stain. What should I use to clean/ remove the old product? I have looked at the restore a deck stripper and brightener. Is that over kill or appropriate? If so does the stripper really cover 500-1000 sq ft? And the brightener is used to neutralize the stripper, right?

    Thanks

    Not made anymore. Closest would be the Restore A Deck Stain Stripper or Defy Stain Stripper.

    No it will not. No deck stain stripper will remove varnish effectively.

    Will HD-80 remove varnish?

    Both the RAD and HD80 can be mixed stronger if needed for any project. You can buy either.

    Is HD80 only sold to contractors? Also, is the RAD stripper superior to the Defy Stripper when removing Defy Epoxy?

    The HD80 or the Restore A Deck Stripper.

    It's been a few years since we put Defy Epoxy in Natural Pine down. I've cleaned and brightened a portion of my deck which removed a great deal of the remaining stain, but not all of it on the vertical posts. I'm thinking that if I don't remove it all, the coloring will be blotchy and the new stain won't soak in properly. Which of the stain strippers you sell would work best (and easiest) specifically on the removal of Defy Epoxy? Thanks.

    Yes it should remove a semi-transparent oil based stain. Use the Restore A Deck Stripper and then the brightener after.
