How long should new PTP age prior to applying Defy Marine Wood Stain?

I have a white cedar dock in aluminum frame- cedar pieces are placed in the frame each year. It is on a lake in Maine- was out one season with no treatment- as suggested by the builder. Which product do I use on it now? Color? The log cabin dark brown. The dock is 30' long, 6 wide and over the water- sometimes submerged. It was in a boat house for the winter but will probably be stored outdoors but removed from the lake from October- May.

Yes you can use the Defy Marine Stain. Nay color that you like will work. Prep first with the Defy Wood Cleaner.

This stuff is good.
You should let me put in pictures.
After researching a long time in the library of the world, the Internet . I decided on this. I bought a house on a canal off intercoastal in Florida. The doc was moldy and horrible. Even though he was a painter used the wrong stuff. He had like 5 coats of thompsons or similar. This doc does go underwater every October with the tides. So I stripped it ( but it wasn't perfect because of the 5 coats and nontoxic? Chemicals that I tried to take it off plus I did minimal sanding. Worked great. After 2 years going to try to put another coat on top. The only thing that I would say is when my sea wall fails, and it will someday, that I will put in the fake wood. Until then, I am using this.

Noticing the availability of a Marine product, what is the difference between the Marine product and the water base product? I saw that water was also mentioned to clean the Marine product brushes so does that mean there is no Oil in the Marine product?
What makes the Marine product a Marine product and why would the Marine product not be recommended on all decks because of the UV protection since decks usually get lots of sun in summer even if covered with snow in winter?

There is not any oil in the Marine Seal as it is water based. The Marine seal is a different formula then the Defy Extreme. It is more "flexible" for marine conditions. It will have the same UV and mold protection as the Defy Extreme.

Quoting rcurtis000:
is it preferred to use wet on wet or one coat as listed on can??

Depends on the wood type and age of the wood. New wood and dense hardwoods will need only one coat. Older/dried out cedar or PTP would require the 2 coats applied wet on wet.

Prior oil base (Olympic Maxxum) stain was applied probably over 6 years ago. Area has been pressure washed and dock looks like stripped wood. Is it OK to apply with no further treatment? The dock is about 600 feet long by 5 feet and is over salt water. Which product is best?

As long as all of the old stain is removed then you can go head and apply the Defy. Use the Defy Marine Stain.

Do two coats to be consistent. For this you would need about 8 gallons for two coats.

My douglas fir lake pier was stained with this defy marine last year when the pier was built. It faded a bit in the first year. What is the procedure to freshen up and re-apply?

Prep first with the Defy Wood Cleaner and a light pressure wash rinse, let dry for 48 hours hours, and reapply the Defy Marine.


thank you. would brightener not be needed?

Not when you already have a base coat.

I will be staining a children's playhouse with deck as well as my dock railings and trim. The dock portions are not submerged, and will always be above water. I would like to use the same stain for both. Do you recommend the extreme or the marine wood? Also, any issues with using a sprayer to apply?

Yes use the Defy Marine. You can spray the Defy. Back wipe drips though.

I have used Defy stains in the past and was surprised to read in the Defy Marine product data sheet to "Apply two coats, allowing the first coat to dry to the touch before applying the second coat." However, you webpage says to apply 2 coats, wet on wet. Which is correct?

Also, what in the Marine stain makes it better for docks over the Extreme? Of course I don't what product formulation secrets but generally is it more UV protection or what?

You want to apply two coats "wet on wet". The Marine has a the ability to flex more so than the Extreme. UV protection is the same.

I would use the Extreme instead. The Marine is more for over water or right next to it.

Deck Adjacent to Saltwater
Would your Marine Stain hold up better than a regular stain if applied to an old PTP railing and spindles only 100' from the ocean? Water damage isn't so much an issue as the railing, which is in the open and not shaded, will dry quickly, but the deck faces south and gets sun and reflected UV all day every day. Thanks!

Constance, all stains fade and need reapplication every 2-3 years. Using a Marine stain will not give you any advantage. Best would be the Defy Extreme Stain but it only come in a medium gray color.

Would your product work for a Horse Trainers Round Pen made from white cedar?
Hi...My husband has put up a Round Pen for training horses. The 50 foot round pen is built with white cedar posts and planks. They are fresh cut, only a few weeks old. We are looking to perserve the wood with a color persevative of some sort (dark grey perferrably). I was doing some research to see what the best perservative is for them on the internet and what I have found, recommended Cupinal Wood perserviative (Copper Naptheate) but I see that this product fades and it has to be re-applied which we are looking to avoid. Also, I read that the posts should be dried for several months before putting them in the ground which is a little late for us, so my husband is going to wait to let them dry out some even though they are in the ground. He plans on putting a perservative tar around the soil base where the soil and the post meet and where most of the fungi rot happens....Then , I also thought what better product than a perservative for marine applications for the rest of the post and planks. Is there such a marine product out there that we could use on the cedar posts and planks that will perserve the wood yet the upkeep would not be so work intensive of applying every few years? We are looking for a dark gray product.

What would you suggest. We are in Michigan and the ground is level and was once used for a garden area. We will be bringing in some gravel and sand for the foundation of the round pen. Also beyond the recommendation of the marine products we could use we would appreciate ny suggestions or comments about any problems you may see that we haven't realized yet.
Forever Grateful,
Constance

It would be best to use the Defy Hardwood as it penetrates better in your wood type.

Just curious... I have a red cedar deck to refinish located in Connecticut. Assuming I remove the existing stain down to bare wood, is there any advantage or disadvantage (other than price) in using Defy Marine stain in lieu of Defy Hardwood stain on the cedar? For example, would the marine stain provide longer protection so that I don't have to re-stain as often? Is there any difference in the look of the two finishes, i.e. depth of color, wood grain, etc? Mold/Mildew resistance? Will one wear better than the other under heavy human traffic? Again, this is a house deck, not a dock on the water. Thank you for any info.

You will need to strip off the SW stain with a deck stripper. You can use the Defy Marine Stain for both the deck and dock.

I have a 4 month old pier made with Yella Wood in Alabama. It will get 100% sun and the only water it will get will be rain water. Which shoudl I use, Extreme or Marine? Whichever you recommend what should I use as a cleaner and how long between restainings?

Thanks!

re: Already stained dock.
You should not put a Defy Stain on top of another stain. It would be best to remove the previous stains first then apply the Defy Marine Seal. This way the Defy will perform properly.

You can use the regular Defy wood cleaner followed by the Defy wood brightener to prep your new wood and "open" the wood pores so that your stain will absorb better.

RE: Defy Marine Wood Stain 5 Gallon
I'm preparing to do the first stain on a fresh water lake dock in Indiana. I was preparing to purchase Defy Extreme stain in light walnut color when I realized you make a marine product.
When preparing new, unstained pressure-treate d wood that was installed 12 months ago what steps should be taken before using your marine stain? I see you have a marine cleaner that I would use first.
Do you recommend using your brightener also before staining with the marine stain?

Thank you,

Bob Trout
