We will reply to your comment shortly· 09/28/2015I have a new kiln dried cedar deck. Should I use Defy a Extreme or Defy Hardwood? Also - should I use a bleach cleaner before stained? Thanks.

We will reply to your comment shortly· 05/14/2012For the past several years, we've used defy clear epoxy on our cedar deck. it seems to be Ok, although it peeled in places last year. Probably from applying too much. this year we sanded deck down and applied one coat of the clear epoxy finish. i'm not too happy with how it looks - too raw and unprotected. should we apply another coat of the clear epoxy defy or would it be better to use the hardwood deck stain?
thanks for any advise you can offer!

We will reply to your comment shortly· 04/19/2010After lengthy search for an environmentally friendly deck stain, I finally found "Defy for Hardwood", that is specifically created for cedar decks. It is a shame that big home stores do not keep it, as it turned out to be a wonderful product. It came with an instructional video, which was a plus for us, first time deck stainers. The first coat soaked into the wood in a bliss, and the soon applied second coat gave it a beautiful rich colored finish. The few drips on the siding could be cleaned off with a wet wipe right away, and with some soapy scrubbing if we recognized it minutes later. The material did not smell at all, like all oil based stains do, and birds came to sit on my deck minutes after we finished. The stain dried very quickly (within an hour) but despite that we did not walk on it for 24 hours to play safe. The stain also cleaned off of my skin with some soaking and soap. So far water is running off of my deck if it would be plastic, but it looks and feels like natural wood, with all its warmth. Cannot ask for more.
thesealerstore, processed my order right away, and my stain arrived with UPS in a few days (free shipping). thesealerstore also answered my questions promptly via e-mail. Excellent customer care!
