We will reply to your comment shortly.· 09/07/2011Can Defy extreme have pigment added to it to match the color of a previous coat of Cabot oil-based stain?
We will reply to your comment shortly.· 09/06/2011The clear will not last as long as one of the tints. The Natural Pine color will last 2-3 times longer and will enhance the natural color of the wood as if wet with water.

We live in New Hampshire and have a covered farmers porch. The wood floors are Fir. We stripped the paint to the bare wood. The porch receives minimal sunshine and no rain except for outer edges. We do get some snow in winter. I like the natural look of the wood and was thinking of using the clear stain finish. How will this hold up over time on a surface like fir that is protected from most elements?

The pre-stain looks similiar in color to the cedartone but would fear it would clash. Also, is it recommended that I seal immediately after assembly?
We will reply to your comment shortly.· 07/09/2011The only reason it would do that is if you over applied or did not prep the wood properly first. Did you prep and if so what did you use?

We applied the defy extreme clear on our brand new cedar deck fence this morning and hours later we are still seeing a white coat on the wood. It was absorbing well and We thought we were applying thinly enough. Will this disappear or are we doing something wrong? How can we get our wood back to normal?
We will reply to your comment shortly.· 06/30/2011The Defy extreme stain is a penetrating stain then can be cleaned and re coated, If stripping is needed it can be done fairly easily as it does not film on top of the wood like an acrylic deck stain.
We will reply to your comment shortly.· 06/30/2011Is the Extreme Nano product considered a penetrating stain like your traditional epoxy fortified deck stain says it is? If the Extreme is used on a deck in two years when its time to clean again can you simply add a top coat and if so will it penetrate and absorb into the wood like a traditional oil based stain or will I have to strip it off every two years before applying a top coat? The reason I ask is that the Extreme is advertised as a stain and "Sealer" which to me implies that it may sit on top of the wood versus penetrating it which to me would seem that it could prevent future coats from being able to penetrate it. If and when stripping is required how difficult will it be to remove it as compared to traditional oil based stains or for that matter your traditional "Epoxy Fortified Product" that does not have the nano technology? Just spent four weeks stripping off 9 layers of acrylic deck stain and I never want to go through the cost of the special chemicals required to cut it nor the time and aggravation every again. In other words, when the product starts to fail is it going to create a lot more cost and effort to maintain it?

2. For cedar wood I would suggest the Defy Hardwood/Cedar stains as it penetrates better.
3. Typically no you do not need to strip when recoating.
4. Every couple of years in Michigan is normal.
5. Our store is in Rochester Hills, Mi if you would like to come in for some advice.

I have a ceder deck in Michigan that we applied a water base Behr stain to and it all flaked off in less than a year, we followed all the directions and talked to Behr numerous times to make sure we did it right. It was a semi transparent stain but went on like paint and did not absorb in to the wood. I know I need to strip it but would like to know :
1. What is the best way to remove it ?
2. If the Defy Extreme will do the same ?
3. Do you have to strip it every year or two to recoat it ?
4. How long will the product last before it needs to be redone ?
5. And any other advice you can give I do not want to go through this again.

We will reply to your comment shortly.· 06/13/2011Just applied Extreme clear to brand new cyress used in cladding pt deck posts. I applied 1st coat and forget. It wasnt until next day I realized I did not return within the 20 minute window to apply 2nd coat. How and when would it be safe to apply a 2nd coat? Do I need to strip it and then apply two coats. I hope not.

For the stain I would suggest the Defy Extreme:
It is not prone to turning black like other known wood stains.

We have been using Jomax and cabets Australian sealer on them every year but they get blace every winter and we have to do them over every spring. We can not get to the deck to clean off the leaves so they cover the decks along with snow all winter. Do you have anything that will last for 3-5 years. We like the natural wood to show. W see you have several cleaners, strippers, brightners, epoxys and ect. What would you recamend we do with the decks so they stay narural for a while. We do not mind the work or $.
