RESTORE-X® Deck Restoration

RESTORE-X® Easy Wood Deck Restoration System

Restore-X restorsation products

RESTORE-X® Wood Restoration Products can make your job easy and increase your satisfaction.  RESTORE-X® products are biodegradable, odorless, and non-flammable.  They are also water based for easy clean-up and specially formulated for your safety.  In the past, the only solution to weathered wood and deteriorated, semi-transparent stain or clear exterior finishes was to hide them and the natural beauty of the wood under a new coat of solid stain or paint.  Similarly, surface preparation of deteriorated paints with the sanding and scraping has always been a labor intensive undertaking.

User Guide to Easy Wood Deck Restoration

Exterior Finish Remover (EFR): It is very important to allow Restore-X® time to dissolve the deteriorated finish and weathered wood.  Latex paints may take considerably longer than oil base paints; so do expect some variation in removal time.  Take a break while Restore-X® works for you, and then test several areas with a stiff brush and water.  If the results are satisfactory, proceed with removal.  Typically, removal times vary from 1-4 hours.  If a second coat is required, wash away the first coat and reapply.  Note:  If recoating with paint or a solid-body stain, complete removal of weathered paint or stain may not be necessary.  Any remaining stain or paint may provide a good substrate for adhesion.  You will need to test the remaining paint or stain to determine if it is suitable for recoating.

Deck Cleaner: Unfinished weathered wood will take 1 to 15 minutes.  Deteriorated stain in exposed areas removes in as little as 5 minutes.  Stain in protected areas may require up to 1 hour.  Expect some variation in the time required.  Mist lightly with water every 15-20 minutes.

Wood Brightener:  All wood should be clean before using Wood Brightener.  Pressure wash surface or use EFR or Deck Cleaner before using Wood Brightener.  All applications should be left to work 5-15 minutes.  If first application leaves an uneven finish or does not brighten to your desired finish, simply reapply.

Penetrating Wood Finishes: To ensure a lasting natural wood color, always complete the Restore-X® process by applying a clear finish, wood preservative or semi-transparent stain as soon as possible.  Time is less important when repainting, but avoid long delays that may allow dirt and/or mildew deposits.
