RE: Which Defy Stain is Best for Me?
Quoting Marge Abel:
Hi, I have just learned about your products from the web site Buffalo-Lumber.com. I live on the central California coast where moisture and fog are typical. We have discovered black mold on the interior wood frames adjacent to the glass (which we have cleaned off and hopefully killed with a borax solution. The original finish looks like a matte or maybe a slightly satin finish.
I am intrigued with the possibility of using a synthetic resin product to refinish the wood and to prevent future mold growth. Could you please tell me which of your products would be most suitable.
THANKS!!!
Marge Abel

For you to use the Defy would would have to remove all of the old finish first. Best would be the Defy Extreme.

I have 20 24"x48" sections of Red Cedar purchased from Menards. Each section contains 4-48" 2x6"s. This wood has been stored inside for 6-12 months. These panels are used as the deck for lakefront piers/docks.They are removable for winter storage. The spaces between each 2x6 is 1/2". What would be the best product and application procedure?

Use the Defy Stain for Hardwoods for the new cedar. Prep before staining with the Defy Wood Cleaner and the Defy Wood Brightener. Only 1 coat for newer wood.

RE: Which Defy Stain is Best for Me?
Dear Sir / Madam
I live in Medford OR (southern Oregon). The annual weather consist of approximately 3 weeks of freezing weather and approximately three weeks of 95 plus. It rarely snows here and it’s usually gone in a day or so. The remainder of the year ranges from 38 to 85 degrees with an annual rainfall of 17 inches. I’m having a new cedar deck install next week that measures 33’ x 12’ with a new railing approximately 3‘ high, 37’ long and three steps @ 4’ each.
I’m looking for a stain or sealer recommendation that I don’t have to redo every two years. Also, I don’t want grey coloring or peeling. My questions are:
• What product do you recommend
• Do I have to clean the new wood
• Do I need to apply one or two coats
• How many gallons will I need
• What is the warranty and if there is an issue; how is it handled
Please provide me with the pros and cons of the product you recommend
Thank you in advance for your assistance.

home owner
My name is Ryan and I have a 1000sqft dock over a lake. I'm guessing the previous home owner built the dock about 8-10 years ago. My neighbor says it was never stained and it looks like he is right from my point of view. The dock is mostly made up of 2x6 boards. I can't tell if they are treated, but I know the side boards are 2x10 and they are pressure treated. I replaced some bad boards with pressure treated, but not very many. The color is dark and you can tell the rain and sun has really done a number. (Seattle area.)

I need to know what to use. I want to be environmentally friendly especially being on a lake and I feel overwhelmed doing any more research. I was reading blogs about some other products that didn't look low VOC, but the customers complained of marks from the brush and things. I don't want to deal with that. Your cleaner suggested that I don't need to pressure wash. Any way. Maybe you can give me some info on what to buy and how much.

RE: Which Defy Stain is Best for Me?
Douglas, if you have any remaining old stain than you do need to remove with a stain stripper first and brighten when done. You should not apply the Extreme in the Driftwood Gray without removing any old stain first. You need the Defy to have a clean and unstained surface for it to work correctly.

Have a probably pressure treated pine deck and attached planter boxes, stained in a cedar red oil stain.

Would like to preserve the wood and stain the deck a gray to change the color and cover the cedar red. What do you recommend?

RE: Which Defy Stain is Best for Me?
Our deck is cypress and is 1 year old. When we first put it down we used Olympic transparent oil stain. It got black & some green mold very quickly. We just pressure washed it, cleaned it with sodium percarbonate (Corte Clean), and then cleaned it with a solution of Dawn detergent, 25% chlorine & 75% hot water because there was still a lot of black mold. Should we now use a deck "brightener" to make the pH better for a stain, and what stain should we use - we live near Tampa, Florida (LOTS of sun, and very humid with heavy rains in summer)?

Wood cabinet
Hi,
I have a wood cabinet in my terrace that came with the house we bought 2 yrs ago. I use it for storing light gardening tools and my kids pool toys and gear. On the top I place potted plants as decoration. It was painted, and needed restoring. So I sanded it to prime and repaint, but when I saw how beautiful the wood is I decided to strip it and stain it. I already stripped it and sanded it down, it looks like a good hardwood, but I don't know what type. I started researching to get the stain and that's how I found you. It gets all the afternoon sun in Florida and also a lot of rain. I was thinking the butternut extreme? Do I still need to use brightening if I just sanded? It only comes in big size and its just a cabinet. Please, advise! Thanks a lot!

Which Defy Stain is best to apply over top of weathered Flood CWF?
Used the Defy Extreme on an old pressure treated, pressure washed, mostly in the shade deck as recommended and so far I'm quite impressed! Next up I have alot of cedar siding, (real 3/4" tongue and groove), which has two very old coats of Flood CWF Oil based stain on it, (last stained over 8 years ago). The tint from the CWF is still largely on/in the wood and stripping would be a monumental task, which Defy Stain can I apply over top?

Cedar deck renewal
I've been applying Defy UV Clear w/Epoxy to my 200 sq ft cedar deck every year for the last 10 years but would like to switch over to a tinted stain. I have cleaned and brightened the cedar deck. It looks like its mostly ready for stain except for some small patches with old UV Clear finish thats peeling up. I will lightly sand over the deck like I do every year to get it ready for application. Is it ok to apply stain if there are still some patches of old UV Clear finish? Also could I go with either Defy Hardwood Stain in cedar tone or the new Defy Extreme Stain in cedartone? It would be fun to leverage the epoxy and nanotechnology of the new Extreme stain and try a product that can go 2-3 years between full efforts. I've been using cedartone Hardwood Stain on my Pine Steps on the side of the house the last few years and really like the way the stain takes to the wood and the way the cedartone tints the pine wood steps. I guess I could leverage either the Hardwood Stain or the Extreme Stain on the pine steps in addition to the cedar deck.

Best to stay with the Defy Stain for hardwoods in the cedartone. You cannot apply the Extreme Clear on top and the Clear will not last as long as the Hardwood Stain will when it comes to preventing UV graying.

re: log work as well as chainsaw carvings
For a true clear, the Defy Extreme would be best but not as good as the Defy Extreme in one of the three tints. Having a tint will give 200-300% better UV protection.

All of them are penetrating matte finishes.

Sorry but no dealers in Canada for Defy products but you can order online.

Hi Guys,
Looking for a clear product to use on timber and log work as well as chainsaw carvings. I am usally working in green materials mostly white pine and Douglas Fir, and it is exposed to the weather.
I would appreciate any help in choosing the best product.Do your clear products dry to a matte or shiny finish?
Thankyou for your time.
Regards,
Dave Mackenzie
