    I would use the Extreme in one of the 3 tints for best results from UV and mold.

    I have several coats of Floor CWF on my cedar sided home, and it is growing mold like crazy. I am thinking that I need to use your stripper and brightener, followed by either your Extreme, UV Resist, or Hardwood stain product. Which of those three do you recommend?

    We have 800 sq ft new, unstained pressure treated deck with cedar banister. What would be the best stain for this & how much should we need?

    You would need to strip off the One Time with the Defy Stain Stripper followed by the brightener. You should not apply Defy to new wood without letting it dry properly and prepping properly with a cleaner and a brightener.

    Hi. I have a 3 yr old deck, PT lumber, originally stained with One Time, which I think is a UV cure acylic stain. If I wanted to recover it with Defy Extreme what would I have to do to prep it?....Also adding a roof to this deck with new PT lumber. Can I use your Defy Extreme if the lumber is still "wet" from treatment??...........Thanks

    You should not put the Defy on the Cabot. Have your tried to strip it off?

    We have a 15 year old deck has held up fairly well considering age. Last treated with Cabot semi-solid acrylic, not happy that it peeled almost immediately in some spots and have read good things about Defy. Which Defy product would you recommend? We are sanding the decking surfacy but the spindles are ornate and will only be cleaned and not sanded. Any problems putting defy on over that?

    The Hardwood Stain doe not come in a Redwood color. You can use any of the colors to enhance the natural wood grain of your redwood.

    I'm confused by the information on the web site. I have a redwood deck, recently sanded and brightened. I wish to stain it with a redwood tinted stain.The site recommends the hardwood stain.Does that stain come in a redwood tint? What would you recommend that I use?

    I have a redwood deck,recently sanded and brightened. Which of the three Defy stains would be the best and that has a redwood tint? It looks like there is only one of the products that has a redwood tint and that is not the one that you recommend for a redwood deck, the hardwood stain.

    For a true clear, the Defy Extreme would be best but not as good as the Defy Extreme in one of the three tints. Having a tint will give 200-300% better UV protection.

    All of them are penetrating matte finishes.

    Sorry but no dealers in Canada for Defy products but you can order online.

    Hi Guys,
    Looking for a clear product to use on timber and log work as well as chainsaw carvings. I am usally working in green materials mostly white pine and Douglas Fir, and it is exposed to the weather.
    I would appreciate any help in choosing the best product.Do your clear products dry to a matte or shiny finish?
    Thankyou for your time.
    Regards,
    Dave Mackenzie
