RE: Defy Stain Samples
Quoting Donna King:
You kindly sent samples for our deck/porch project, but the Butternut and Light Walnut were both redder in cast than I expected from the picture. Our brick is brown/gray; is the natural pine more a true light brown, without the red? Thank you!

The Natural Pine is a Golden color.

We have a new pine pressure treated deck and screen porch. We live in NC. We need to stain before sceening. It is on average 85-90° each day. Would like to keep it as natural as possible. How many coats? Us pine color better than clear? Adele Boyle

Hello, you cannot prestain. The wood needs to weather and be prepped. See this for more info:

I used your stain on my fence and deck at my former home. I just bought a new home and built a deck and fence which I need to seal/stain. I promote your product all the time as I think it's great. I am planning to use my fence contractor to seal my fence and deck and I told them about your product. My HOA will allow me to just use clear but I am hoping to get away with using the lightest stain which I think is your natural pine. Do you suggest otherwise? I am getting both this and the clear in a sample to see.

The Natural Pine is a golden color and will offer 3 times the UV protection than the clear on your fence. We would suggest this.

I have Brazilian hardwood steps and decking.

I want the most penetrating type of stain for no build-up.

Use the Defy Hardwood Stain for this.

Do you have a list of colors used in the picture gallery? The colors above look indistinct and I would like to only have to order 4 samples/$32 before I choose what to use on my 1000 sq ft deck. Can you direct us to Any pictures with color ID's? thanks.

We do not have a gallery of photos. This article does explain the colors better:

In Wyoming, the weather is a short dry, hot sun summers that are harsh to any wood and the snow can stay on the deck during the long winter. We have a large, full sun South & west facing non pre-treated redwood deck. What would be the your product recommendation? Where can I purchase it?

You can purchase from us online and have it shipped there. Use the Defy Extreme.

I have a pressure treated pine deck & fence, approx. 1800 sf of surface to treat in Dallas, TX w/half getting full sun. Wood has been curing since last July and as it is too hot here to stain now, plan to do so in Sept./Oct. I want to use a Defy Product w/the best UV/Water protection and the longest life before reapplication is required. Please advise if the Defy Extreme is the best one and how long this first treatment will last.

Yes the Defy Extreme in one of the colors will be best. You will need to reapply every 2-3 years on average. Make sure to clean and prep first.

We are looking for a durable stain for our deck that will survive winters in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada where it gets down to -40C. How many years do you think your stain would last on our deck before we would have to stain again? Are there any distributers in Canada? Thanks!

About 2 season on a horizontal surface in Alberta. No dealers there but we can ship to you.

We have a cedar shake home built in 2005. It is on the ocean and we have had issues with mold on the front of the house. We are treating the mold (again) this year and as the remainder of the home is graying nicely, would like to use the extreme wood stain in Driftwood on the front of the home. Is ours a recommended application? I plan to order the sample, but wanted feedback prior.
Best Regards,
Jennifer

Yes the Defy Extreme in the Gray would be perfect for this. Prevents mold and has excellent Uv Resistance for vertical cedar shakes

I am looking to purchase your stain (cedar tone) and have some questions regarding the sample stain I am going to purchase first. I live in the Midwest and was curious if the stain will last a few years before I would need to stain again?

Yes typically lasts 2-3 years in the Midwest.

RE: Defy Stain Samples
After sanding you should use the Defy Wood cleaner to prep. Do not use more than 60-80 grit paper.
