What Our Customers Say About DEFY Extreme Wood Stain

  • I live in one of the sunniest cities in the US where summer temperatures often reach 100 degrees or more and this stain has held up to the heat and sun amazingly well. I applied this stain to my cedar fence two years ago and it is still looking good without pealing or darkening. I live in a new subdivision and my neighbors have used other well known brand name stains, but their new fences are peeling and discoloring already. I have had a number of my neighbors knock on my door to ask what kind of stain I used on my fence as they like the appearance. Application was easy and without odor.
  • Defy Extreme is just about the best product you can buy to protect a wooden deck from the ravages of the sun. I've been using it for nearly 5 years now with excellent results.
  • We used this product on a new wood deck. Turned out great, easy to put down, no odor, dried quickly. We love the results of this product. The color is perfect. I would recommend this.
  • We have a very large western red cedar deck which is exposed to a lot of debris as our backyard is heavily wooded. Our deck requires a lot of maintenance. We have tried every high end stain and sealer out there with price no consideration. Far and away DEFY is the best. It goes on easy, lasts long, and most importantly makes the deck look spectacular. We used to have to clean, stain and seal it every year but we are now down to every other year or 3 years. This product is excellent.
  • Stuff works great and goes a long way. Water beads up now and it has penetrated the wood on my old previously treated (about 7 years ago) porch. I bought a gallon too much. I didn't believe it, but their coverage estimates are right on.
  • This is the best stain/sealer I have ever used on a deck. I began using it several years ago and order it every other year. It keeps an old deck looking new. Everyone comments on how great the deck looks and they always want to know what product I use. For me DEFY is incomparable.
  • After researching products, I chose Defy to seal an 8 month old white pine dock behind my home. I was impressed with the cleaner, brightener and the Defy stain. Application of cleaner and brightener was done with sprayer and was fairly easy. The Natural Pine Defy sealer was brushed on by hand.. I learned quickly that the second coat of sealer must go on before the first coat dries. I was able to seal two boards at a time (two coats) as the product dries fast. Dock looks great. I’m amazed at the hardness of the product and water resistance it has exhibited.

  • ...I was immediately impressed with the appearance upon applying the product to the deck railings. The ease of application was amazing and I almost enjoyed staining the deck! I love this product so far…I used the car wash brush as suggested and the job was done in record time.
