Update Best New Deck Stain for 2019: In 2018, our first full year if using the Restore A Deck stain, we had zero issues with performance and saved a tremendous amount of time with the ability to prep and stain in the same day. We will continue to offer the Restore A Deck Wood Stain as one of our go-to decking stains for the 2019 restoration season.
With more than 20 years’ experience owning and operating our own deck staining business, we have tried pretty much every brand of deck stain out there. We Q&A with thousands of contractors, homeowners, and project managers about their projects, what works, and what does not.
Last year we tested the Restore-A-Deck Wood Stain. The RAD stain completes the line of the RAD Cleaner, Strippers, and Brighteners that have been around for 15+ years. Restore-A-Deck wood stain utilizes the latest advancements in wood stain technology to properly seal and protect the wood in 4 beautiful semi-transparent finishes. The formula penetrates deep into the wood grain to protect your deck against UV damage and water that can promote the growth of mold and mildew. It is eco-safe and easily cleaned up during the application process with soap and water. After one year, the deck stain had no wear/tear and peeling, no mold/mildew/algae, no UV graying, and very little color darkening.
