Composite Wood Decks with Defy Composite Waterproofing Sealer and Cleaner

Many homeowners are going with the composite type decks these days. Composite decks are usually made from a material containing some wood, plastic or other type of durable product. Though composite decks can be marketed as “maintenance free” they really aren’t. Anything that is exposed to the elements will degrade over time if it is not protected.

Defy Composite Deck SealerThe good news is that a composite deck can be protected just like a wood deck. Using a stain like Defy Composite Sealer that will penetrate the dense composite material is the key.

The surface can be cleaned and treated with a sealer to block out the sun’s damaging UV rays and moisture. When these types of decks are not protected they can gray out, warp, split, and collect mold and mildew.

Before staining a composite deck it first has to be cleaned. A good composite deck cleaner Such as the Defy Composite Cleaner should be applied onto the surface. The composite deck can then be pressure washed or scrubbed with a stiff brush to remove any dirt, grime, graying, or mold/mildew. Once the surface is clean it can air dry for a day or so.

Be careful not to use just any type of wood sealer on a composite deck. The material is very dense and most stains will not penetrate it very well. A sealer like Defy Composite Sealer is specially formulated to penetrate very dense hardwoods and also works very well on composite decks. It will dive into the surface of the deck and help shield against the sun and unwanted moisture.

Apply Defy Composite Deck Sealer using a brush, roller or sprayer. Apply one board or section at a time. Apply only as much Defy as the composite will soak up. Wipe or back brush any excess stain so as to not leave any puddles, runs, or drips.

Maintaining a composite deck is made easy with Defy. Keep your composite surfaces looking like the day they were installed and enjoy them for many years to come.

Defy Composite Deck Sealer can be used on all composite wood brands such as: TREX, Fiberon, Azek, TimberTech, etc. It should not be used on solid plastic decking.

    Just finished cleaning our composite deck with Scott's Outdoor Cleaner with Oxy Clean. Looks pretty good. Thought there might be a better solution than scrubbing and power washing every year and found your product. Should we redo the cleaning process with your cleaner before applying the composite sealer or is the Scott's clean ok?

    Probably will be okay as long as it is clean.

    My trex deck is flaking, and damaged. I want to put outdoor carpet over it. If I put your sealer on the trex before glueing the carpet down do you think it will be the best product for what I want to do?
    Thanks
    Mark

    It will not "fix" your flaking Trex if that is what you mean. Since you are putting carpet on, the only thing the sealer would help with is mold prevention under the carpet.

    We have read many good reviews on your product and would like to know how can we tell if we have a composite wood deck or a solid plastic deck as I see your product should not be used on a solid plastic deck? We purchased our home 2 years ago, it was built 8 years ago, and we don't have any idea about the deck floors or steps. We just sealed our wooden deck railings and now the deck floors and steps (which are either composite wood or plastic)look so faded and dull. We would like to brighten them up also. We appreciate your help.

    Thank You,
    Debbie

    It is obvious when all plastic as it looks like vinyl and it is not porous.

    Will Defy sealant work on Geo-Deck composite decking?

    As long as it is a composite and not 100% plastic, it will work.
