If you're looking for the best stain for cedar decks in a water-based product, then look no further. DEFY Deck Stain for Hardwoods is a synthetic, semi-transparent finish specifically formulated for use on cedar, mahogany, redwood, and other dense or difficult to penetrate woods.

Project_buttonDEFY Hardwood Stain also works well on composite woods. It is a VOC-compliant stain that penetrates wood pores to block out water and provide long lasting protection from weather damage.

DEFY Deck Stain Uses
DEFY Deck Stain for Hardwoods can be used on interior or exterior smooth hardwood surfaces including: wood siding, decks, outdoor wood furniture, and other hardwood surfaces. For more porous surfaces such as pressure treated lumber, pine and cedar log siding, or rough sawn lumber, use DEFY Extreme Wood Stain. DEFY Deck Stain for Hardwoods is available in Cedar Tone, Light Walnut, and Natural Pine. Finding a cedar stain or redwood deck stain product that actually works is difficult, as most deck stains have trouble penetrating oil-rich or dense wood types. This product was specifically designed with smaller resins to penetrate better which helps eliminate surface buildup and peeling. Other products out there claim to be the best stain for cedar decks but there is only one DEFY Deck Stain for Hardwoods.

Easy Maintenance
DEFY deck stains will give you years of protection for your deck and are easy to maintain. When the surfaces begin to look weathered and worn, which should normally be every 2-3 years and 3-5 years for the vertical surfaces, simply reapply a light maintenance coat. No need to strip the deck every time. It may be beneficial to use DEFY Wood Brightener to clean and brighten the surface before the maintenance coat. DEFY deck stains contain powerful sunscreens to block damaging UV rays. Ultra violet rays cause wood to turn gray and become susceptible to water penetration and decay. DEFY Deck Stain for Hardwoods contains synthetic resins that do not attract mildew and algae like other natural resin stains (oil-based products) do. Additionally, DEFY deck stains are water repellent.

    Joey:
    I have a redwood floating deck around a floating home in Portland Oregon to refinish. On a freshwater River. Deck is about 18 inches out of the water. Law states must use waterborne stain. Main concerns are UV and mildew. Which stain do you recommend? Second deck same location on another home. Only this one was outdoor wood, so I believe it's fir. The finish has already failed and been removed. What stain for this one? Do you have color samples you mail out or is this product available somewhere in Portland Oregon?

    You can get samples here:

    We would suggest the Defy Extreme Stain for both of these decks.

    Should have said "does NOT". Water based stains such as Defy do not promote mold growth, oil based stains do. That is why they need to add mildwecides into them.

    Your May 23, 2012 comment includes this surprising statement:

    "The Defy Hardwood Stain is best for cedar wood. It does not contain a mildewcide as it is a water based stain that does promote the growth of mildew."
    Do you really mean that it "does promote the growth of mildew"? If you really mean "does NOT promote the growth of mildew", how does it do that?

    The Defy Hardwood Stain is best for cedar wood. It does not contain a mildewcide as it is a water based stain that does not promote the growth of mildew.

    As for removing an old stain, you should use the Defy Stains Stripper followed by the Defy Wood Brightener.

    Thanks

    Hi,
    Is your Defy Hardwood Stain the best stain to use on a cedar deck in Minnesota? Is the Hardwood stain better than your Defy Extreme on a cedar deck?
    Can you send me a list of steps that we need to do to remove a 2 year old oil stain of which there is not much left on the deck. Is the Defy Hardwood Stain environmentally friendly and can you please email us a MSDS on this product?
    Does the Defy Hardwood stain contain mildecide to prevent mildew? We were hoping we didn't need a product containing mildecide (spelling?) if we went with a water based stain with synthetic resin?

    We look forward to hearing back as soon as possible. We'd love to order the 5 gallon Hardwood Stain if that is what you feel is the best!

    Thanks,
    Tom and Michele Johnson

    For the best preparation for the wood you should remove the woodguard stain with the Defy Stain Stripper. This will allow the new coat to properly adhere and penetrate into the wood.

    Hi, I have an existing log cabin that I have been using Woodguard as a stain. Would your product be able to go over this and if so, is there any prep required. I have also built a new garage which I would be putting log siding on..would you suggest any particular product for new wood and how long could I expect to go before needing a 2nd application.
