    I finished cleaning (pressure washed) my 17 year old composite wood porches and deck. Which is the best or recommended product, DEFY,TWP or Armstrong-Clark stain? Any input is greatly appreciated.

    I have a 1,500 sq ft treated deck in western PA that was sealed with Olympic Maximum clear every 2 years for past 20 years. Would like to reseal with best product available. Have been considering oil based. it seems TWP is recommended a lot. After stripping, what do you recommend for brightner and a clear sealer?

    I'd like to know if your Supreme Shield 600 Wet Look can be used to seal a large outdoor travertine deck? Can I roll it or is a sprayer required? How long can I expect the seal and wet-look to last in years?
    ThanksTony in Atlanta

    I don't have a pump sprayer, can I use a roller to apply the Defy deck stain stripper?

    What type of brush should I use to apply the Defy Deck Stain Stripper and where can I buy it? I bought the nice one to apply the new stain but I don't want to spoil it using the stripper.

      You will need to sand off the solid stain and then clean and brighten all wood after.

    I need to refinish my Ipe deck. I was considering using the semi transparent Armstrong Clark. The deck is 600 square feet. For prep I was going to sand with fine sand paper and then to I need to apply anything else before the stain? Also, how many gallons for the deck?

      Clean and brighten for prep while pressure washing, not sand is the correct way.

      You need the AC in one of the three hardwood colors. About 3 gallons:

    Hi,

    Can SB-600 be applied over Super Seal 25?

      It will not dull the shine of the SS25 if that is what you are trying to do. The shine would still be there if you use the SB-600 over the SS25.

      AC or TWP in a semi-solid when in full sun. Make sure to clean and brighten the wood for prep.

    Getting ready to apply a second coat of DEFY clear stain. Deck is 2 years old. Applied the first coat 11 months ago (after cleaning and brightener). Am I correct in again using the cleaner and brightener before the second coat? Also, can I use a light stain (natural or pine) over the previous clear stain or will that potentially leave uneven results?

    Thanks,

    Jeff

      Prep is correct. I you want a tinted color, then you will need to strip and brighten the wood.

    I live in central Ontario. We are building an open cedar deck and screened in porch. I understand we should leave the decking at least Three months before we stain, I am wondering if that applies to the ceiling in the screened in porch or can I stain those boards without the air time? It is a vaulted ceiling and I was hoping to stain before we put the boards up. Also what product would

    Two years ago I sealed my concrete pavers with super seal 25 and was really happy with the results. I was planning on resealing my pavers this spring and was interested in applying supreme seal 600 for more of a wet look without the shine. Would it be ok for me to apply the supreme seal 600 over the super seal 25?

      Adding the SB-600 over the SS25 will not dull the SS25, it will still have a semi-gloss shine when it dries.

    New pavers were installed 3 weeks ago. Contractor used a water based penetrating sealer which has a Sodium Methyl Siliconate base. Since the install of our pavers be sealer they have turned white. FYI - we had quite a bit of rain recently. The contractor believes an efflorescence remover will remove the white film on the pavers, however, the product they plan to use is made by Glaze N Seal, which does not have good reviews from customers. You have two products on your website: SB-488 Efflorescence & Rust Remover and Efflo Off. Please give me your opinion on which product you recommend. I have included a photo. Thanks.

      Without removing the sealer first you most likely cannot remove the white discoloration. We do not have a stripper that will remove this type of sealer. Might want to ask GlazeNSeal for help.

        Thanks for your prompt response. My contractor has talked to a rep from GlazeNSeal. They recommend trying the Efflorescence remover.
