DEFY-ColorTipsDEFAULTNano-Technology Improves Stain Performance 200-600%

SaverSystems has joint ventured with several companies to develop a new long-lasting stain technology.  Our research efforts over the last year and a half have lead Project_buttonto a new development in the performance of exterior, semi-transparent wood finishes to protect your deck.

A newly developed nano-technology used in combination with our existing technology has been found to significantly increase the durability and weather resistance of our synthetic resin based deck stains. This new light stabilizing nano-technology actually works by blocking and absorbing the harmful UV rays from the sun that damage your wood.

Not only does this new technology help prevent wood from graying it also helps prevent water intrusion while resisting  fungal growth. The independent test results are in, and below are photo’s of the actual test boards which show how the new DEFY Extreme new technology stacks up against the best selling national brands.

Location: Lawrenceville, Ga Stain: Defy Natural Pine Prep: None Wood/Age: Pressure Treated Pine # of Coats: 2 Excellent ? product - 1 Gallon covered entire 12×14 deck 2× ? Natural Pine is Golden and Rich, doesn't look like paint on wood. Looks like Harwood floors with a Semi -Matte appearance. We hand painted our platform Brush/Roller and it was quick and easy. If you hand paint don't skip around. Paint one plank at a time end to end. Also Dry time was quick - no smells- water like consistentcy goes far. Clean- up with Soap/Water. Wish I could post the pictures! Thank you

      We do not sell the Defy Solid Stain on this site as it has to be custom mixed.

    I know you all say to apply one coat to new wood, which I have done. Should I apply a second coat after some period of time, one year, etc.?

    I have an 18-year old deck, pressure treated pine, that I've just finished power washing. The decking is kind of rough, some splinters, and I wasn't able to remove all of the previous stain from the balusters. Is your stain recommended for older, rough decks? One coat or two? How many gallons for an older deck and railings that total about 1,000 square feet? 
    • We will reply to your comment shortly.
      thesealerstore · 05/10/2021
      Yes, the Defy works well for older wood. About 10 gallons for this.

    I just ordered the stain (already had your brightener) and stripper. I'm sanding the cedar deck to bare wood and was going to just use brightener before the stain. But I saw this comment below:  06/09/2020
    Defy Extreme in the semi-transparent can be cleaned and reapplied as needed. It does not have to be stripped or sanded. After sanding a deck, use the Defy Wood Cleaner for the final prep. Just one coat of the Defy Stain."        Does this mean no brightener needed? How does this cleaner differ from the stripper?

      thesealerstore · 04/15/2021
      After sanding it is best to clean and brighten for prep. The Stripper cannot be used on unstained wood.

        Shirley · 04/15/2021
        I don't understand then the difference between the cleaner and the brightener. Aren't both non-chlorine bleach solutions? What do they do differently from one another?
        • We will reply to your comment shortly.
          thesealerstore · 04/15/2021
          They are completely different. You need the Brightener to neutralize after using the Cleaner or Stripper.

    I just applied this product to our deck. Looks great! Should I apply a sealer as well?

      thesealerstore · 04/13/2021
      No, you can never apply a sealer over the Defy stains.

    I have a large deck at my cabin in the North Carolina mountains. I was recently doubled in size. The deck itself is pine. Part of the deck is 13 years old and has had 3 coats of solid stain applied over the years, some from Lowes and the latest was Arbor Coat. The newest part of the deck has 1 coat of Arbor Coat. The bottom line is that the deck looks awful and needs to be redone. I saw your product on one of the websites I looked at and would like to try it. Do I have to remove the old stains first and if so what do I use?

      thesealerstore · 04/12/2021
      If you would like to use the Defy semi-transparent stains then yes, you would have to remove all the current solid stains and that would require power sanding.

    Is it acceptable to mix Extreme for Hardwoods with Extreme used for pine? I have a project with just enough product to finish if I mix the two. Would this change the appearance? Does the Hardwood variant come out darker/lighter? Thanks

    I have a new green treated deck that is 4 months old and want to treat it in the spring. i like the natural look. What stain or product would you recommend I use? Thank you!
    • We will reply to your comment shortly.
      thesealerstore · 10/13/2020
      Any colors that you like in the Extreme line will work. Make sure to prep using the Defy Wood Cleaner and the Defy Brightener.

    I have a cedar deck which we're sanding down to bare wood. How much square footage does of a gallon of extreme cover ? Then because it looks like you recommend 2 coats I guess I should double that ?? Also, Iv'e been online researching and some products say stain and sealer. Would this be considered the same ?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly.
      thesealerstore · 10/08/2020
      About 100-150 Sq feet for two coats. Defy is a stain and sealer. All deck stains are sealers.

    Mike · 09/30/2020
    Recommendations say that new wood should not get wet on wet (2 coats). What qualifies as new? My pressure treated deck was installed March of this year, so it has aged 6 months.

    Michael · 09/19/2020
    I have a 3 year old deck with pressure treated wood. I don't know remember what the builder used for stain or sealant. Most of it is gone but not all. The hand rails I had done a year ago and paint contractor used Sherwin Williams Super Deck but is now starting to peel. What do I need to do to prepare this to apply the DEFY Semi-Transparent Stain. This receives sun all day and so far neither of the two used before has held up. Please advise how to prepare and how long does this product last in all day sun as my deck wraps all the way around the house so a lot of deck. Endurance and longevity is what I am looking for. Thanks

    How many coats of Defy Extreme would you recommend for 5 year old Poplar board and batton that has not be stained or treated yet. Also, how often do you recommend reapplying stain to wood siding?

    Ann · 07/27/2020
    I am preparing to stain a shed that was originally treated with Sansin water repellant wood sealer (no stain). Can I start with the cleaner and then the brightener before staining or do I need to strip the sealer off?

    Eric · 07/11/2020
    I have 250sq. ft of smooth horizontal cedar siding that hasn't been stained for about 10 years. It doesn't get a ton of sun, so it does get mold on the surface. I'm planning on cleaning with Defy Wood Deck Cleaner, then the Defy Wood Brightener. For smooth cedar in a high mold environment, should I use Defy Extreme or Defy Hardwood?

    Dave · 07/02/2020
    Can I prep and stain the same day? If not, how long do I have to wait after prep before staining?

      Cannot be the same day. Wait 48 hours to dry after prep.

    My Daughter has a ceder deck that was built 3 years ago. They stained it with Behr semi transparent latex stain and it peeled. The next year they stripped it and reapplied the same product and it peeled again.
    Should they use Defy Extreme or Extreme for hardwoods? Would every bit of the old stain have to be removed? This deck is in the sun all day would an oil based product be better?

    Thank You

      thesealerstore · 06/28/2020
      You must remove all of the Behr. Use the Defy Hardwood Stain.

    I used the epoxy fortified natural pine years ago it’s worked great. I want to change to driftwood gray what product would attach without peeling now

      thesealerstore · 06/19/2020
      You will have to use the Defy Stripper and then the Defy Brightener for prep first.

    Thomas Derby · 06/15/2020
    So what do we do if as you say we over applied
    • We will reply to your comment shortly.
      thesealerstore · 06/15/2020
      If it does not dry correctly after a week or two you would need to sand/strip it all off and start over. If it does dry you may run the risk if it peeling down the road in a year or two due to the over application. You would have to strip/sand and remove it then.

    Bare older pressure wood deck sat from last years stain removal and cleaning and brightening. We sanded cleaned and brightened again. Wood soaked up stain we applied 3 coat. Now 3 days later it still seems tacky in the mornings. By afternoon when sun hits it seems to be okay. Did we mess up putting 3 coats of wet application on? Love the driftwood color.
    • We will reply to your comment shortly.
      thesealerstore · 06/15/2020
      Yes, you over applied and this will probably lead to product failure. Defy is a penetrating stain so it is supposed to fully soak in.

    David Gauthier · 06/13/2020
    The directions for applying the Extreme semitransparent stain say not to apply in direct sunlight. Virtually none of our deck is in the shade. Do we need to wait for an overcast day or by direct sunlight do you mean directly overhead like between 10:00 and 2:00?

    Thanks
    • We will reply to your comment shortly.
      thesealerstore · 06/14/2020
      You do not want to apply on a hot full sun day. Best to do in am or late afternoon when the sun is not directly overhead.

    I have a 20 year old redwood deck that has been stained with Behr transparent redwood stain. I have just sanded all the horizontal surfaces. Do I need to treat this with anything before staining? Which stain would you recommend to bring out the natural wood tones? Something that doesn't have to be stripped or sanded off but can just be reapplied as needed would be great. Thanks.

      Defy Extreme in the semi-transparent can be cleaned and reapplied as needed. It does not have to be stripped or sanded. After sanding a deck, use the Defy Wood Cleaner for the final prep. Just one coat of the Defy Stain.

    Can this product be applied over "DEFY wood oil for decks" in the future?. We have the cedar tone of the wood oil currently on our deck, but it looks like you don't sell the deck oil anymore.

    Denise parent · 05/30/2020
    I m getting a new deck with regular pressured wood, not cedar. I want to use clear stain. Do i need to still bleach clean deck or can i just let it cure, as suggested. How long do i let it sit before staining. Does your product have to be sealed

    Can you tell me the difference between Extreme Semi-Transparent Crystal Clear and your Extreme Transparent Exterior Wood stain in crystal clear?

    I have a new deck and I want to preserve the color of the kiln dried pine without graying.

    Also, when the time comes, can I re-coat as necessary without stripping first?

    I left a partially full gallon of my extreme semi transparent cedar wood stain in the unheated garage this past winter (Fort Collins, Colorado). Is the stain still good or has it been compromised?
