    If I am planning to sand the deck before staining, do you still recommend using a cleaner or brightener?

      Either will work well and last about the same but easier to stay with the 200 Series.

    Used Defy Extreme (Cedar Tone) on our Deck in Nova Scotia. Great stuff, beautiful look. Had it professionally applied. Have a 25X25 deck as well as about 25X25 privacy fencing...they did it all in two days using about 1 5 Gallon Pail - then did a single coat second year - not because of wear, but just to get another coat on..holds the color nicely and no peeling etc...I plan to do just horizontal boards this year as the verticals look pretty this stuff - very watery so drips a lot, but the wood loves it - drinks it in.

      Hello Chris, prep with the Restore A Deck Cleaner/Brightener Kits and then stain with the Defy Extreme Wood Stain.

    Do you have samples that I can get to test for the correct color of stain to go on my deck?

    Looking for a light stain to apply to our pressure treated pine deck installed two years ago. We'd like a larger reference for the various color choices. Are there samples or other online references to build confidence before we make this leap?

    Just wanted to drop a note about my experience with Defy Extreme Stain.

    I did a lot of research after buying a home here in North Texas with a worn out painted deck. I didn't want to completely redo the deck every few years (strip and sand), and Defy Extreme seemed the best option. I had to strip the deck of that horrible paint, then I sanded the whole thing down, and finally I applied Defy Extreme. We have a big deck so it was time consuming to do the two coats, but the color (light walnut) was beautiful when done. This was all completed in November 2012.

    It is now March 2015 and I am buying my second pail of Defy Extreme. The deck has worn out as I anticipated thanks to the Texas sun and heavy rain, but there is no peeling like with paint and there is still enough color that it doesn't look terrible - but I can tell the wood is accepting too much water when it rains. To be honest, the new coat probably should have been applied Fall 2014, but the stain has held up very well here in Texas.

    I cannot describe how happy I am about NOT having to strip or sand again! The stain did its job and kept the deck in good shape overall. All I have to do is a quick rinse (with Dawn was recommended) and break out the paint brush again. I plan to continue using Defy Extreme for as long as it is available (and will probably cry if it ever disappears). :-)

    I am trying to figure out if I can prep and stain the boards before I install them on the deck. I live in western Washington where we don't get much time between rain storms for the deck to dry properly. I am going to use douglas fir and was thinking of staining the ends and sides plus the exposed side of the board. Do I have to wait 3 plus months after purchasing the boards to stain them?

    The Defy Extreme would be best for cedar siding.

    Gail, for two coats you will need 5-6 gallons of the Defy Extreme for 600 sq. feet.

    Defy Extreme is the improved version of the Defy Epoxy. Yes on your questions.

    When researching deck stains, one of my concerns with oil based stains was the use of algecides and so on. The deckstainhelp website recommended Defy Epoxy Fortified as a safe, eco-friendly product. Also, barefoot grand child friendly. Is the Extreme product equally friendly?
    Also, the coverege rate is about 150 square feet/gallon. Is this the coverage rate for both initial coats?

    We are considering purchasing Defy Extreme Stain (as well as Defy wood cleaner & exterior wood brightener). We have approximately 600 sq ft of outdoor deck to cover. HOW MANY GALLONS OF THE DEFY EXTREME STAIN WOULD YOU ADVISE WE PURCHASE? I'm estimating we'd start, after both steps of cleaning, with one 5-gal unit. Would like your feedback.
    Deck/handrail details: About 1.5 years old; handrails uncoated but weathered cedar; decking treated wood, but well-weathered; Climate - South-central Missouri (lots of hot & cold)
    Thanks for any info you share.
    THANK YOU! Mrs Gail Rowley

    1. Applied well to older wood as long as all of the old coating is removed. Wood fillers do not work on decking. Leave the cracks alone.
    2. Best to use a stain pad.
    3. You will have to add products to cart and enter checkout to get shipping costs.

    I have few questions regarding Defy Extreme Stain and the task at hand. I have a fairly old deck and would like to do some maintenance to make it look better and serve longer. I power-washed it to remove the dirt and bits of old paint - looks good now.I live in Canada and after some research the Defy Extreme seems the best I can legally use here. Questions:
    1. Does it apply well on older wood? What would you recommend to use for fixing cracks/cavities prior to staining?
    2. Product description says that it can be applied by either spraying or with brush/roller. Is there a preferable way assuming inexperienced DIY painter (i.e. myself)? Does quantity required vary depending on the application method?
    3. How much shipping to Toronto area will cost and how long does it take?

    Your prompt response is much appreciated
