I have used defy synthetic semi transparent stain on my cedar siding. Can I apply the extreme stain over the old semi transparent stain?
You would need to prep first with the Defy Cleaner and pressure washing.
I bought the Extreme cedar stain for our cedar siding. After a test area, it looks like the stain is for red cedar, not white cedar which we have. Does Defy have an alternative?
No, and it works for all cedar types.
I would like to know, if I could use a paint sprayer to apply the DEFY WATER REPELLENT WOOD STAIN to my cedar fence.
What is the best sealer for a pine deck?
Use this: https://www.defystain.com/wood-restoration/wood-and-deck-stains/defy-extreme.html
This surprises me since the Extreme says it is for hardwoods. What would be the equivalent color to light walnut in the Defy original?
No, that is the Hardwood version. The link we sent was not for the Hardwood version but the regular Extreme version. You want the Light Walnut in the link we sent above.
This is a quote from the link you sent (Not the hardwood version) “Defy Extreme Wood Stain can be used on interior or exterior smooth hardwood surfaces including: wood siding, decks, outdoor wood furniture, and other hardwood surfaces.”
That is correct, the Defy Extreme is for all wood types.
Hi. I Alaskan Yellow Cedar as siding around my house and as a decorative feature. I removed the mold and sanded the wood with 80 grit (because it got fuzzy after removing the mold). Then applied Defy Water Repellent stain (sun valley pine). It looks great. What is the maintenance procedure to give me the best chances of beating the mold this time? Anything I need to do monthly or at the 1 year mark?
No, just clean and redo every 2-3 years.
K. I’m hoping the mold doesn’t come back. I used oxygen bleach to remove the mold and then sanded and stained. It’s been a pretty long process to finally get the last coat of stain applied.
Our idiot maintenance man user Behr deck sealer which left an orange tint on our Composite deck. Do you have a product that will stain over that? We are talking 3800 square feet of composite decking.
No, nothing can be applied over it. The Behr will have to be removed.
If I switch to Defy Extreme for my new shop siding, can it match the Defy Original Teton Bonze color I have on my log home? I don’t see Teton Bronze as an option with the Defy Extreme.
No, it will not match. Best to stick with the Defy Original.
I have a log home which we treated about 6 years ago with DeFy UV Protectant which I can’t find on your website Are you no longer making it and what should I switch out to?
There was not a product called “DeFy UV Protectant” in the past so more than likely the Defy Original is what you used and should use again.

You can use the Defy Stains for Log Homes. The most popular are the Defy Original or the Defy Extreme.
I have a log cabin, white/yellow pine logs, 7 years old, bleach washed and stripped old stain (oil based)left over winter untreated (ran out of warm weather), north side developed bad black mold (no sun). want to use your product but most of the info I see is for decks, can you send me info on the best bet for me to combat this issue, want to stay with the log look trying to stay away from solid latex but that looks like the only option I have unless I want to spend 2 weeks of the 4 weeks vacation I have washing n scrubbing my cabin every 2-3 years. Help needed in Wisconsin
No need to apply anything on top. Redo in 2-3 years or as needed.
After applying two coats of Defy Extreme Wood Stain to I need to apply a top coat on it? and how long before I need to redo this whole process?
Wait a couple of months then prep with the Defy Wood Cleaner and Wood Brightener.
I am in the process of putting wood siding and new pressure treat 2X4s and 1X4s to recove my exsisting shed. How long should I wait to stain? I understand the pressure treat lumber needs time to cure, should I wait a week, month or a year? or does it matter
The old deck would need to be stripped and or sanded to remove all of the old stain. Once done you would use a wood brightener. The newer deck needs a cleaner and brightener for the prep. Once all the wood is properly prepped, you would want to use the Defy Extreme Stain.
I have about 1000 sq foot of decking, and a pool. We live in Ohio so we get all the elements so this deck gets abused! Part of the deck is old and stain is flaking and peeling and I have green mold, what the heck do I do with that to get it ready to stain???? The new portion is just pressure treated lumber, nothing’s on it but it’s 2 years old and I assume needs cleaned before staining???? Finally what is your very best longest lasting stain??? I am so worried abt the 2 decks matching in color so I was going to use behrs solid color stain but I keep hearing bad reviews! Please help me, I’m ready to purchase!
The Defy Stain Stripper does not remove paint. Please order online as we do not have any dealers in your area.
i need to stip my deck of old stain but I afaid the stripper will get on my drywit siding on my house and harm the paint. How should I go about this and where can I find your product around Gastoina NC
I would look at either the Defy Original synthetic or the Defy Extreme Stain. Coverage is about 150 sq. feet per gallon. We do not have a dealer in your are but we can ship 5 gallon pails free of charge!
I am building a house in Tullahoma, TN. Western Cedar siding. Which product should I use to stain, what is the coverage per gallon? Lastly, do you have a supplier in this area?
For a Brazilian hardwood deck you would want the Defy Stain for hardwoods. Defy Stains are penetrating stains and do not film on top of the wood like the Behr does.
I have wood from Brazil (hardwood decking) we used Behr last year it all peeled up this winter needed to strip it off what a job. Does Defy coat the wood like Behr does it peeled like nail polish it wasn’t transparent. Very unhappy and afraid on what to use. I do not want to go through this again. Nothing that coats the wood. I live in southern nj.
Sorry but the Defy Original Synthetic only comes in 5 gallon pails. The Defy Epoxy, Extreme, and Hardwood stains come in gallon sizes.
Is there any place I can buy your preservative/stain in a gallon size? I have part of my new deck that I want to stain in a different (darker) color than the rest.
You would need to remove with the Defy Stain Stripper then brighten when done with the Defy Wood Brightener
My log home (white cedar) had the Defy original stain applied when built in 2001 using the #300 redwood canyon color. Several years later another coat was applied. The color is now an unattractive dark brown and has worn to the point where it needs to be recoated. What must I do to lighten the wood or strip off the existing coat?
Best to prep the house buy using a stain stripper followed by a wood brightener. This will remove the finish and the mildew. This way your new stain will properly adhere and penetrate into the wood.
Yes it will last as log as an oil.
I have to re stain my cedar sided house. I used a product 4 years ago called menwood stain. I believe it is a oil based stain. I now have a great deal of mildew on the north side of my house. Two questions. What is the best and easiest way to remove the mildew and second, can I use a synthetic based stain over the menwood stain. Will it last as long as an oil based stain. thanks
You can walk on the first coat. Just do not step in the second coat.
OK, I’ve scratched my head on this for about a week and can’t come up with an answer: how can I apply the second coat of stain before the first coat is dry — without walking on the first (still wet) coat?
For cedar wood we would suggest the [url=http://www.defystain.com/defy-hardwood-stain.html]Defy Hardwood/Cedar stain[/url]. It penetrates cedar better which it makes it easier for reapplication without stripping in the future.
We have a deck made from cedar. We used a Behr semitransparent weatherproofing stain on it when it was new about 4 years ago. It did not stay looking good for more than a year.
Which product from DEFY will provide a protection that we can just add to every year without having to strip off the old every year prior to applying DEFY. We have sanded and stripped off the old Behr product and are ready to order from you. Please advise. Thanks.
The Defy stains do not contain animal fat and do not turn black over time. The Defy Extreme would be the best stain for your pressure treated wood.
