Defy Extreme Stain is the Best Water Based Deck Stain

Defy Extreme Water Based Wood StainsOil based stains have been around for many years but their formulas have not changed much in that time. Water based deck stains such as the Defy Extreme, have made great leaps in wood preservation and protection. One reason water based stains are one of the best types of stain for staining a wood deck is because they are less prone to mold and mildew growth than oil based stains. A water based stain containing the natural mildewcide zinc will fight off mold and mildew whereas oil based stains can actually encourage fungal growth.

Another reason water based stain is best for staining a wood deck is simply that it is environmentally friendly. Oil based stains contain high VOC percentages and are banned from some states. An eco-friendly water based stain like Defy also uses nano-technology, which increases the durability and weather resistance to be more like, if not better than oil based stain. This technology has been proven to improve stain performance by 200-600%. Most oil based stains are the same old formula they have always been and are not VOC compliant in some states.

Best Water Based Deck StainDefy Extreme Stain is very user-friendly and easy to work with. It is VOC compliant, easier on the environment, and cleans up easily with soap and water, unlike oil based stain that requires mineral spirits or thinner. It helps reduce wood graying, prevents water intrusion, while resisting mold and mildew growth. The new technology of zinc oxide nano particles is similar to sunscreen and when combined with high-grade resins, reflects harsh UV rays like no other stain ever has. A newly formulated water based stain that will provide a beautiful long lasting finish that is easy on the environment and less prone to fungal growth.

Give up the old oil based formulas and move to a more eco-friendly water based stain like the Defy Extreme Wood Stain. It truly is one of the best types of stain for staining a wood deck or any exterior wood surface.

    Linda Mador:
    You indicate one coat for new wood and two coats for older wood. Our deck is about 4 years old and is made of pressure-treated wood, but it has never been stained before. We have washed it and applied the brightener. Would this be considered old wood or new wood, with respect to the number of coats of stain we should apply? I see that this questions was asked by someone in the past, but I couldn't find a response.

    Old wood for this. 2 coats applied wet on wet.

    What preparation do I need to apply this on a deck that was stained 1.5 years ago with a water-based stain (Behr)?

    You will need to remove the Behr fully first. Use the Defy Stain Stripper and pressure washing to remove. Apply the Defy Wood Brightener after.

    Can the Defy stain be used over wood previously done with an oil based stain?

    The oil based stain would need to be removed first.
