    A few Q's. We did our deck about 4 years ago with Benjamin Moore oil-based Arborcoat. It actually held up pretty well, but all that is left now is the faded pigment. Do I need to completely strip the deck to go to Defy water-based semi-transparent Butternut stain? Do you know how long it takes to receive a shipment in New Jersey? Is that the same time for samples and then a 6 gallon order? Thanks!!

      Yes, you would have to remove fully and that would require stripping and sanding. Shipping takes about 2-4 business days samples or gallon orders.

      Defy only comes in water-based. Natural Pine is the lightest tinted color.

    I am a taskrabbit Elite tasker. A client hired me to stain some chairs for them, and they used your water-based extreme product. It went on like a charm, and I used less product than anticipated. your formulation is awesome. Thank you.

    I recently used your semi transparent butternut stain on boat dock in Lake Murray, SC. I did not realize that as soon as I applied the stain to the deck. the hot sun baked the first coat on and I was not able to attain the same shade throughout my project. Lesson learned. I was wondering if you would recommend me sanding the light areas of my project and re-stain in cooler temperatures to allow the stain to soak into wood for desired shade. Please help! Any advice you may have. Thank you Gus Soto

      Unfotnauly you cannot spot treat this and have it all blend. Best would be to just leave it as is for now. More than likely the color will even out. You can lightly clean and reapply another coat in the Spring of next year as well.

    House was previously stain with Cabot clear solution oil formula. We have cleaned removed oxidized stain. Can we now switch to your Water based Defy semi transparent?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly.
      thesealerstore · 08/06/2019
      Did you remove all of the Cabot down to the bare wood? If so, then yes, you should be okay to stain now.

    We recently purchased our home. I have sanded our pine pergola that is 10+ years old and does not appear to have had a stain ever put on it. Interested in using your product but have noticed numerous carpenter bee holes. We plan to fill these before staining. Can you advise whether the stain will cover the plugs and deter future bees.

      Wood filler will not work on exterior wood. It will not "stain" to blend with a deck stain nor will it perform correctly. It will look very unsightly. Best to leave as is or try the blend the stain with a caulk that is close in color after you apply the Defy.

    We live in north FL (lots of sun and humidity) and have built a pergola out of milled cypress. What is the best stain to apply for maximum UV protection?

    I purchased TWP 1511 Cal Redwood previously from you, but would like to switch to Defy Extreme. Which color would come closest to this?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly.
      thesealerstore · 03/27/2019
      FYI, you must remove the TWP first before using the Defy Extreme. There is not a color that will match the 1511. Closest will be the Light Walnut but that will be a little richer in tone.

    I am from Toronto Canada. I am planning to install a new ceder pergola. Can I stain the wood before installation? Which of your product is best for new wood?

      Use the Defy Hardwood stain for cedar. It cannot be pre-stained. It will need to weather outside for a few months and then cleaned and brightened for the initial prep.

    My deck is 5 years old. I used a compound "One Time Wood". The finish is failing, can I use Defy products over the One Time Wood.
    • We will reply to your comment shortly.
      thesealerstore · 03/17/2019
      No. You will have to strip off the OneTime first and then brighten the wood.

    Hello-we have added a frame construction addition to our log home that will have log siding (pine) to replicate the true logs in the main house that is stained with Teton Bronze in 2001. We are trying to have the two structures match as closely as possible. Can you recommend a color that would come close to a (now darkened/exposed/periodically re-stained) Teton Bronze? Many, many thanks for your help.-Beth

      thesealerstore · 12/27/2018
      Hello, sorry but it is not possible to match new wood to old wood exactly. Best to use the Teton Bronze again as there is not a way to replicate an "aged" look.

    We have ordered samples of TWP and Armstrong oil base from you in the gray colors. But now I think we have decided to use a water base stain, due to drying time. Is the Defy Extreme Driftwood Gray darker then the Armstrong Driftwood.

    Patty · 09/15/2018
    Which stain product has the darkest gray color in the semi- transparent? We will be using on tongue and groove pine, on a roofed porch and exposed stairs. Thank you in advance for any help.

      Only the Defy Extreme comes in a gray color and it is not a dark gray but a lighter Driftwood Gray.

    Jon Woodman · 07/11/2018
    In the photo of your color samples the wood used appears to be a light colored pine. But, won't these colors appear different on much darker woods such as ipe or mahogany? Can you supply photos of your stains on darker woods? Thanks - Jon

      thesealerstore · 07/11/2018
      We do not have photos for all wood types and yes colors will always vary based on the wood type and age. This is why we supply the samples for testing on your wood.

    My mother is looking for a medium brown. Would you consider your light walnut a medium brown? She doesn’t want orange or dark brown colors. TIA

      Light Walnut is a brown with a hint of red. Butternut is a dark brown.

    Need stain for Douglas fir arbor, redwood fence and cedar. All wood is new and unfinished. Southern California. Arbor is mostly in the shade. Redwood fence is in sun and shade and cedar is in full sun. Are there retail stores in Los Angeles or Santa Monica?

    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.
