We will reply to your comment shortly· 04/08/2015Looking 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?
We will reply to your comment shortly· 03/10/2015Just 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). :-)
We will reply to your comment shortly· 01/06/2015I 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.
We will reply to your comment shortly· 01/04/2015Please tell me what products is best for cedar siding?
We will reply to your comment shortly· 09/01/2014Gail, for two coats you will need 5-6 gallons of the Defy Extreme for 600 sq. feet.
We will reply to your comment shortly· 09/01/2014Defy Extreme is the improved version of the Defy Epoxy. Yes on your questions.
We will reply to your comment shortly· 08/31/2014When 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 will reply to your comment shortly· 08/30/2014We 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.
PLEASE KEEP MY NAME AND EMAIL CONFIDENTIAL.
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.
We will reply to your comment shortly· 08/28/2014Hi,
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
We will reply to your comment shortly· 07/15/2014Thanks for the fir staining tips.
Now contemplating ipe instead of the vertical grain fir. What woudl you recommend for ipe in terms of stain type, number of sides to stain and timing? I have heard and read that cut ends need to be waxed within 24hrs to prevent checking. Have also read conflicting information regarding when to stain for the first time. Some say immediately, others say wait 6-12 months. Thoughts?
We will reply to your comment shortly· 07/11/20141. No reason to stain all sides, just exposed wood after install. You want the wood to not be 100% sealed.
2. Yes the Extreme would work well. Just one coat for the first time and another coat in 1-2 years or as needed.
We will reply to your comment shortly· 07/09/2014Have built a new deck in Seattle. Deck faces West so exposed to the wind, rain and sun. Plan to use 5/4 x 4 kiln dried vertical grain fir deck boards. I plan to cut all boards to fit and then stain all 6 sides of the boards prior to installing.
1) any reason why I cannot or should not stain the deck boards prior to installing?
2) would you recommend Defy Extreme for fir?
We will reply to your comment shortly· 02/12/2014Best for this would be the Defy Extreme. We can ship the Defy Extreme to CA. Takes 4-5 business days. Not sure on the paint. Best to take it to a local paint store and get them to match the Defy color.
We will reply to your comment shortly· 02/12/2014I have salt water pool, pool deck is Douglas Fir wood. What stain is best for my deck? I am in southern California. Do you ship Defy stains to CA? How long will it take? I also like to paint my patio cover with the same color as the stain. Do you recommend any products ? Thanks.
