    I have a "fen dock" which has previously been stained. Is it sufficient to sand it down or do I need to use stripper as well before restaining

    I have a new deck that is 2 years old. I would like to stain it for the first time with a semi transparent product. I live in Southwestern Ontario, Canada. What do I need to do to prep this deck and which product do you suggest that will hold up to our climate? Thanks very much. Monika

    I see the Armstrong product has linseed oil in the ingredients. I do not see what TWP 100 has for oil ingredients. Can u help with this info and, what gives TWP 100 the edge in ratings over Armstrong Oil Stain? I look forward to your reply because I want to choose my Oil Stain between these two. I like that linseed oil is in Armstrong oil stain. Is Linseed oil one of the best oil preservative for wood materials? Thank you, Mike

      TWP and AC are both excellent oil-based stains and are comparable in durability. Linseed oil is found in most oil based stains but there are varying degrees of quality. Both the TWP and AC have high quality linseed oil as part of their formulas.

    I don't know if it was a blue can or a red can container. What can I get to go over it now? I want to keep the deck light in color.

      Sorry but nothing can go over this. It will need to be stripped off down to the bare wood. There are no other brands that make a similar color.

    Greetings. For the past few years, we have been looking for a wet look, low gloss driveway paver sealer that will be durable and last well under our Canadian freeze thaw and salt conditions. We have a 400 VOC limit in Canada. We have tried a few sealers, including Surebond SB-6000 and Clemons SB-350, both of which we purchased from OPW. However, each of the sealers went hazy and whitish after a few weeks. Any suggestions will be much appreciated. Thank you.

      Rob, the SB-6000 and the SB-350 do not turn white by themselves. If this happens then the issues of the white haze is something underneath creating the problem. Could be moisture, efflorescence, and older different sealer, poly sand haze, etc. Does not matter what brand of sealer you apply now, it will just continue to repeat the issue in a few weeks or month. To fix you will not remove the current coatings and address the issue that is causing the repeated problem. You would start by using the Paver Sealer Stripper and pressure washing to remove. After that, you may need to use a cleaner that is specific to removing any additional white stains. Feel free to post a picture or two and did you ever use a polymeric sand?

        Thank you. Yes, polymeric sand was used and it hazed. There was also penetrating sealer on from before (SealnLock). However, I stripped with Soy-Gel and CitriStrip and pressure washed, and hoped I had everything off. I guess not, so wonder what I should do now. We are limited in the strippers we can use, because of environmental regulations. Many thanks.

          We cannot ship our stripper to Canada as it is considered Haz Mat. I am not sure what you have there in local stores that would work.

            Thanks. A lot seemed to come off with the Soy-Gel, so I wonder if I should just repeat until I hopefully get a totally clean surface.The thing is, the surface seems clean at first but then goes hazy again after a while (not really white, but rather a mottled muddy appearance). I'm also wondering whether there is a problem as a result of penetrating sealer that is impregnated into the pavers and cannot be stripped? Also, if and when I ever do get a clean surface, what sealer do you think I would be best to use? Thanks again.

              We have never had good luck with Soy Gel so not sure if it will fix this or not. Certain sealers types cannot be stripped. For a wet look with no shine, we like the Supreme Shield SB-600/SB-350.

                Thanks very much. So, if there is a sealer on the surface that cannot be stripped, is there any way of sealing over it, apart from using the same sealer as the one that cannot be stripped? Also, is there any way of testing to see if the surface is truly totally clean, apart from re-sealing and waiting to see what happens? Also, I assume you are not aware of any stripper that meets strict environmental regs but is sure to be effective? Finally, is SB-350 a weaker or less durable sealer than SB-600, given the use of the low VOC solvent? Your assistance is much appreciated.

                  Sorry, but there is no way test to make certain all sealer is removed 100% Not sure on other brands of stripper except what we carry. SB-350 and SB-600 last the same.

    My pavers were sealed with a water based sealer 2-3 years ago. I have high pressure washed them. There does NOT appear to be any film on the pavers. Can I use a solvent based sealer now?

      Yes as long as the old sealer has not discolored and is not visible.

    I want to use Armstrong semi-solid on my cedar fence here in Dallas TX. Was stained about 6 years ago so its in need of a clean and restaining. How do I calculate the amount I will need?

      If you still have old stain on the wood, you will need to remove it by stripping and brightening. To determine sq. footage, Lenght x Height x 2 for both sides.
