FEATURES & BENEFITS
Q. What makes Restore 2X One Coat Solid Stain different from other solid stains?
A. Restore 2X One Coat Solid Stain is unique from other solid stains in that it produces a beautiful
finished look in just one coat. Other solid stains require two coats to fully hide the wood grain
underneath. Furniture can also be returned to surface 48 hours after application is complete with
Restore 2X One Coat Solid Stain. Most solid stains require 72 hours before the furniture can be returned
to the surface. Restore 2X One Coat Solid Stain can also be used on broom swept concrete and most
composite decking in addition to wood whereas other solid stains only work on wood.
Q. What other features does Restore 2X One Coat Solid Stain have?
A. Restore 2X One Coat Solid Stain has NeverWet properties inside. That means that the coating is
hydrophobic and repels water to extend the life of your deck and the coating. Additionally it has
superior water repellency and is an algae and mildew resistant coating.
Q. Does Restore 2X One Coat Solid Stain fill voids in the wood and concrete?
A. No. Restore 2X One Coat Solid Stain is meant for newer wood and concrete surfaces. While thick
enough to cover your surface in one coat, it is not thick enough to fill cracks and voids. Cracks should be
filled using the Restore Crack Filler prior to application.
Q. Does Restore 2X One Coat Solid stain have a smooth texture?
A. Yes, Restore 2X One Coat Solid Stain has a smooth finish that is barefoot friendly.
WHERE TO USE
Q. What surfaces can I apply Restore 2X One Coat Solid Stain to?
A. Wood: Restore 2X One Coat Solid Stain should only be applied on structurally sound wood and most
composite surfaces. Some composite decking is engineered with moisture repellants or sealers that
may prevent proper adhesion. Be sure to follow specific manufacturer’s recommendation before
applying to any composite decking. Restore 2X One Coat Solid Stain is recommended for use one newer
wood surfaces. New wood needs to weather 6 months before application.
Concrete: Restore 2X One Coat Solid Stain should only be applied to structurally sound broom swept or
porous concrete. It is recommended for use on newer concrete surfaces. New concrete surfaces need
to cure 30 days before application.
NOT FOR USE ON: Smooth or floated concrete, fiberglass, tile, and metal surfaces. These surfaces will
not allow for proper adhesion. Do not use on driveways, garages, or other areas with vehicular traffic.
Q. Can I use Restore 2X One Coat Solid Stain on any concrete surface?

PREPARATION ON WOOD
Q. Do I need to prepare my deck before applying Restore 2X One Coat Solid Stain?
A. YES! REGARDLESS OF AGE OR SURFACE CONDITION, FAILURE TO FOLLOW ONE OF THESE
PREPARATION METHODS WILL RESULT IN POOR ADHESION AND POSSIBLE COATING FAILURE. NEW
AND SEALED WOOD DECKS NEED TO WEATHER AT LEAST SIX MONTHS BEFORE APPLICATION.
RESTORE 2X One Coat Solid Stain FAQs
Page 3 of 10
METHOD 1: PREPARATION WITH RESTORE DECK START WOOD PRIMER (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED)
Step 1 – Clean:
Clean the surface using a deck brush and the Restore Deck & Concrete Cleaner. The surface must be
completely clean and free of dirt, grease, mildew and organic growth to ensure product bonding and
adhesion. For best results use a pressure washer, in addition to the Restore Deck & Concrete Cleaner, to
remove embedded dirt and grime. (Use at a low setting 500‐1200 PSI. Do not use high pressure as it
may harm the wood.) For mildew and other organic growth use a diluted solution of household bleach
(3 parts water to 1 part bleach) applied to the surface before cleaning. Loose paint needs to be scraped
and removed from the surface.
Step 2 – Light Repairs:
Raised nail heads and/or screws should be secured using a hammer or a screwdriver. Remove loose
splinters and replace severely damaged or rotting boards. Fill larger cracks using RESTORE CRACK FILLER
or similar acrylic, non‐silicone filler. Allow to dry.
Step 3 – Apply Restore Deck Start Wood Primer:
Using a 3/8” nap roller or a synthetic bristle brush, saturate and apply generously in a consistent
pattern. Work to a wet edge at all times. Apply thickly to the surface to ensure good penetration.
Restore Deck Start Wood Primer appears milky during application but dies clear. Allow the primer to dry
1‐2 hours before applying the solid topcoat over the primer. Do not apply the topcoat until the entire
primed surface is clear and there are no white areas showing anywhere on the deck, including in cracks
and nail heads.
METHOD 2: PREPARATION WITH RESTORE DECK STRIPPER
Step 1 – Remove existing Stain/Sealer:
Previously applied coatings need to be removed for two very important reasons; first stains do not
adhere well to one another and second the old finish will block the new finish from penetrating the
wood. If the old stain or sealant is peeling, it will pull your new coating up as well. The new topcoat will
not lock down and seal the old topcoat. Even if you have not recoated your deck in many years and it
looks like there is no stain or sealant left on the deck, you must complete this step. Previously applied
stains and sealants may be present on the deck and are not always visible and they will prevent the new
topcoat from properly adhering to the wood.
Strip the surface using a deck brush and the Restore Deck Stripper. Apply the deck stripper to the deck
and scrub it into the wood with a deck brush. Let it sit for 15 minutes, then power wash it off
completely. Follow all of the instruction on the back of the Restore Deck Stripper label before
proceeding. Next sand the entire deck using 50 or 60 grit sand paper. This will open the pores of the
wood and create a textured surface that is easier for the coating to adhere to.
Step 2 – Clean:
Clean the surface using a deck brush and the Restore Deck & Concrete Cleaner. The surface must be
completely clean and free of dirt, grease, mildew and organic growth to ensure product bonding and
adhesion. For best results use a pressure washer, in addition to the Restore Deck & Concrete Cleaner, to
remove embedded dirt and grime. (Use at a low setting 500‐1200 PSI. Do not use high pressure as it
RESTORE 2X One Coat Solid Stain FAQs

may harm the wood.) For mildew and other organic growth use a diluted solution of household bleach
(3 parts water to 1 part bleach) applied to the surface before cleaning. Loose paint needs to be scraped
and removed from the surface.
Step 3 – Test Surface for Application:
AFTER CLEANING THE SURFACE YOU MUST CONDUCT A SPLASH TEST TO ASSURE THE OLD COATING IS
FULLY REMOVED FOR PROPER ADHESION OF THE NEW TOPCOAT. PREVIOUSLY APPLIED SEALERS may
be present on the deck and are not always visible. Conduct a splash test by sprinkling water on multiple
areas of the surface. Check at least 4 areas, or more for larger areas. Be sure to check both high traffic
areas such as walkways and non‐traffic areas. If the water absorbs rapidly into the surface, the surface is
ready to be coated. If the water beads, puddles or is not absorbed, the surface is sealed and not ready
to coat. If any part of the surface is not absorbing the water, use the Restore Deck Stripper and Sand
using 50 or 60 grit sand paper again in that section. Clean again with a brush and Restore Deck &
Concrete Cleaner and conduct the splash test again. Continue this process until the water is absorbed
by the wood in all test areas. Let the surface dry completely before application. Failure to follow this
process will result in poor adhesion and possible coating failure.
Step 4 – Light Repairs:
Raised nail heads and/or screws should be secured using a hammer or a screwdriver. Remove loose
splinters and replace severely damaged or rotting boards. Fill larger cracks using RESTORE CRACK FILLER
or similar acrylic, non‐silicone filler. Allow to dry.
Q. Do I need to prime my deck before applying Restore?
A. There are two preparation methods you can follow to properly prepare your deck before applying
Restore. You can either use the Restore Deck Start Wood Primer or the Restore Deck Stripper. We do
highly recommend the preparation method with the Restore Deck Start Wood Primer because it
simplifies preparation and removes the steps of stripping and sanding. The Restore Deck Start Wood
Primer also enhances topcoat adhesion. Carefully follow all of the instructions on the Restore Deck Start
Wood Primer. If you choose not to prime before coating the deck, then you need to used the Restore
Deck Stripper and 50 or 60 grit sandpaper to fully prepare the surface before applying Restore.
Q. What special preparation is required for new pressure treated wood?
A. New wood may be wet with chemicals or have mill glaze from the manufacturing process. New wood
should age for a minimum of 6 months before applying Restore 2X One Coat Solid Stain. The lumber
must dry completely before applying the product to prevent peeling of the coating. The surface must
also be properly cleaned and prepared using Restore Deck & Concrete Cleaner to remove all foreign
material and mill glaze prior to application. Follow the PREPARATION instructions on the label to be
sure the Restore 2X One Coat Solid Stain adheres properly to the wood.
Q. Can Restore be applied directly over a previously painted surface?
A. NO. The surface needs to be properly prepared first using either the Restore Deck Start Wood
Primer or the Restore Deck Stripper. Follow the Preparation Instructions on the labels of the Restore 2X
One Coat Solid Stain can, Restore Deck Start Wood Primer, and Restore Deck Stripper. FAILURE TO
RESTORE 2X One Coat Solid Stain FAQs
Page 5 of 10
FOLLOW ONE OF THE TWO PREPARATION METHODS WILL RESULT IN POOR ADHESION AND POSSIBLE
COATING FAILURE.
Q. Can Restore be applied directly over clear wood sealers such as Thompson Water‐Seal?
A. NO. Wood sealers often contain paraffin, which prevents paint or coatings from adhering to the
wood. The surface needs to be properly prepared first using either the Restore Deck Start Wood Primer
or the Restore Deck Stripper. If using the Restore Deck Start Wood Primer the sealed surface needs to
weather at least six months before application and a splash test needs to be conducted on multiple
areas of the surface to ensure the sealant has fully weathered throughout the whole deck. Follow the
Preparation Instructions on the labels of the Restore 2X One Coat Solid Stain can, Restore Deck Start
Wood Primer, and Restore Deck Stripper. FAILURE TO FOLLOW ONE OF THE TWO PREPARATION
METHODS WILL RESULT IN POOR ADHESION AND POSSIBLE COATING FAILURE.
Q. What do I do about nail heads and screws?
A. Raised nail heads and/or screws should be secured using a hammer or screwdriver.
Q. I have some deck boards that are rotten. How should I deal with this?
A. First you must remove and replace any rotten wood with new deck boards. Clean the deck boards
thoroughly with the Restore Deck & Concrete Cleaner. Conduct a splash test to make sure the water
absorbs completely on the new boards before coating.
Q. I have large cracks and nail holes in my deck. How should I deal with this?
A. Large cracks and nail holes can be filled with Restore Crack Filler prior to or after the application of
the first coat of Restore.
PREPARATION ON CONCRETE
Q. How sound does my concrete need to be to coat?
A. Floor should be in good condition and should not contain any loose, chipped (spalled), or cracked
concrete. For best results, remove all loose material and dust and repair damaged areas before you
coat. If you are planning to apply Restore 2X One Coat Solid Stain to newly poured concrete, allow
surface to cure for at least 30 days prior to coating.
ALL EXISTING SEALERS, PAINTS, STAINS, WATER REPELLANTS OR OTHER FINISHES MUST BE REMOVED
for Restore 10X Advanced to adhere properly. To check for the presence of these, conduct a splash test
by sprinkling water on multiple areas of the surface. Check at least 4 areas, or more for larger areas. Be
sure to check both high traffic areas such as walkways and non‐traffic areas. If the water absorbs rapidly
into the surface, the surface is ready to be coated. If the water beads, puddles or is not absorbed, the
surface is sealed and not ready to coat. If the surface is sealed, remove the sealer/coating with a
chemical stripper or by using a concrete floor sander. Clean again with a brush and Restore Deck &
Concrete Cleaner and conduct the splash test again. Continue this process until the water is absorbed

by the wood in all test areas. Let the surface dry completely before application. Failure to follow this
process will result in poor adhesion and possible coating failure.
Q. Can I coat damaged/flawed/marred concrete?
A. Do not apply Restore 2X One Coat Solid Stain on damaged, flawed, or marred concrete.
Q. What kind of test can I perform to confirm that the concrete is sound?
A. A visual assessment of the condition of the concrete, as well as checking for moisture and presence
of a sealer (see test for this in the question below) are necessary tests to perform to determine if it is in
good enough condition to coat.
Q. Why is it important to test for moisture or sealers?
A. Presence of moisture and/or sealers will prevent the coating from adhering properly and may cause
product failure. We do not recommend coating under either of these circumstances.
Q. How do I test for presence of moisture?
A. Apply a 2’ x 2’ sheet of plastic (such as a heavy‐duty garbage bag or 1 gallon plastic storage bag) to an
area of the concrete. Tape down the edges with duct tape and allow to set for 24 hours. If water
droplets appear on the inside of the plastic or if concrete appears wet (darker in color), moisture is
trapped in the concrete and it should not be coated.
Q. How do I test for presence of a sealer?
A. YOU MUST CONDUCT A SPLASH TEST TO TEST FOR THE PRESENCE OF A SEALER. PREVIOUSLY
APPLIED SEALERS may be present on the concrete and are not always visible. The sealer will prevent the
new coating from properly adhering to the concrete surface. Conduct a splash test by sprinkling water
on multiple areas of the surface. Check at least 4 areas, or more for larger areas. Be sure to check both
high traffic areas such as walkways and non‐traffic areas. If the water absorbs rapidly into the surface,
the surface is ready to be coated. Follow the instructions below for removing the sealer before coating.
Q. My concrete is sealed, can I still use this product? What do I have to do if it is sealed?
A. If your concrete is sealed, the sealer must be removed prior to coating. This is best done by using a
chemical stripper or a concrete floor sander. Next perform the test for presence of a sealer detailed
above. If water continues to bead, the floor should not be coated. If water soaks into the surface, you
may proceed to coat the floor as directed.
Q. My concrete patio already has paint on it. Can I apply this over another coating?
A. You cannot apply Restore 10X Advanced Resurfacer directly over another coating. ALL EXISTING
SEALERS, PAINTS, STAINS, WATER REPELLANTS OR OTHER FINISHES MUST BE REMOVED for Restore 10X
Advanced Resurfacer to adhere properly. The previous coating needs to be removed using a chemical
stripper or a concrete floor sander. After the old coating is removed conduct a splash test by sprinkling

water on multiple areas of the surface. Check at least 4 areas, or more for larger areas. Be sure to
check both high traffic areas such as walkways and non‐traffic areas. If water continues to bead, the
floor should not be coated. If the water absorbs rapidly into the surface, the surface is ready to be
coated.
APPLICATION
Q. What is the best way to apply Restore 2X One Coat Solid Stain?
A. ONE COAT OF RESTORE 2X ONE COAT SOLID STAIN IS REQUIRED.
ONLY APPLY RESTORE 2X ONE COAT SOLID STAIN WHEN THE AMBIENT TEMPERATURE WILL BE
BETWEEN 50‐90 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT DURING APPLICATION AND FOR A FULL 6 HOURS AFTER
APPLICATION.
DO NOT APPLY IF RAIN IS EXPECTED WITHIN 24 HOURS OF APPLICATION.
TRIM AND VERTICAL SURFACES: Before applying Restore 2X One Coat Solid Stain to the horizontal deck,
first coat vertical surfaces such as deck posts, railings, or balusters. Cut in around edges with a brush
and coat visible areas between deck boards.

Q. Can I apply Restore when it is Cold/Hot outside?
A. Restore 2X One Coat Solid Stain should only be applied when the temperature is between 50 and 90
degrees Fahrenheit during application and for at least 6 hours after application. Do not apply if the
temperature will drop below 50 degrees or go above 90 degrees Fahrenheit anytime for 6 hours after
application. Concrete takes a long time to warm up; make sure the previous day has also been at least
60 degrees Fahrenheit prior to coating.
Q. The instructions say the coating should be applied when no rain is imminent. I live in a rainy
climate where rain is always imminent. Can I still apply Restore?
A. Yes. It is imperative that the coating be allowed to dry and cure for 24 hours before it is rained on.
We recommend that you secure a large tarp over the area to be coated to protect the surface from rain
and moisture.
Q. I plan to use more than one can of Restore to coat my patio/deck – how can I be sure that the
color is exactly the same in each?
A. If multiple cans are used they should be mixed together to ensure consistency in color.
Q. Can I add water to Restore to thin it?
A. NO.
Q. My deck surface is still “tacky” and soft. What should I do?
A. Extend the drying time. Drying times may vary depending on the temperature and humidity. Dry
times listed are based off the optimal application temperature of 70 degrees. Restore 2X One Coat Solid
Stain should not be applied if temperatures are below 50 degrees and above 90 degrees during
application and if temperatures will drop below 50 degrees or go above 90 degrees for at least 6 hours
after application.
Q. How long before furniture can be placed on the deck after the deck has been coated?
A. 48 hours. We recommend that deck furniture have rubber tipped legs to avoid scraping the deck
surface. Avoid dragging furniture on the Restore coated surface. It will abrade the surface and wear
down the coating in the areas where dragging has occurred.
CLEAN UP, STORAGE & DISPOSAL
Q. How do I clean up after application?
A. Restore 2X One Coat Solid Stain is a water based product that will clean up with soap and water. For
best results clean up should be done before the product dries. Cover the areas around spindles and
walls to avoid splattering during the application process.

Q. What do I do with leftover paint? How do I dispose of leftover paint?
A. If you have any leftover paint, please make sure you secure the lid tightly and store in a room
temperature environment. It is always good to keep some extra product for any future touch ups.
If you rather not keep leftover paint then the best course of action is to purchase some paint hardener.
This will solidify the product and then you can safely dispose in your trash.
MAINTENANCE
Q. How do I maintain my newly coated surface?
A. Basic maintenance consists of sweeping or blowing clean the surface from dirt, leaves, and other
debris. Clean the surface seasonally and when necessary with Restore Deck & Concrete Cleaner, a brush
and a water hose.
DO NOT USE A PRESSURE WASHER
Remove snow by using a PLASTIC SHOVEL (DO NOT USE A METAL SHOVEL OR A SNOW BLOWER).
DO NOT USE SALT. If salt gets onto the coated surface remove immediately.
Q. Can I use my barbeque on my deck?
A. Yes, you can barbeque on your deck. Take care to avoid any hot ashes or coals on the deck surface.
If oil or soot collects on the deck surface, it may discolor. Clean the oil and soot with household
cleaners, be sure those cleaners do not have a high concentration of alcohol, acid and base or bleach.
Q. Can I put planters on my deck?
A. Yes, you may put planters on your deck. To avoid discoloring or damaging the Restore coated
surface, planters must be up off the surface. Plant stands, rollers, or glass blocks can be used to lift
planters and pots up off of the deck surface. Avoid puddles of water under planters or hanging baskets.
Q. Will Restore 2X One Coat Solid Stain become hot in the sun?
A. Yes. Just like any painted surface, Restore will become hot when exposed to the sun. If you are
concerned about surface temperatures, or are applying Restore to a surface that has high exposure to
sun (pool decks, sun decks, etc.), we recommend choosing our lightest colors, such as Beach or Cape
Cod Gray. Lighter colors reflect light, while darker colors attract and absorb it.
RESTORE TROUBLESHOOTING
Q. I applied Restore 2X One Coat Solid Stain to my deck or patio and it rained within 48 hours of
application. Is there anything I can do to fix my project?
A. Yes. Let the surface dry completely. Scrape any loose material from the surface. Clean the surface
using the Deck & Concrete Cleaner and a deck brush. Be sure to let the surface dry once again. Apply
one or two additional coats of Restore following the Application Instructions.
