I first purchased this product about two years ago for a new redwood fence on the north side of my house. I was happy with the product and the fence looked great. Now, I just finished using it on a redwood fence on the south side of my house, which also looks great. But the remarkable thing is that the two-year-old stain job looks just as good as the one I finished yesterday!
I have just completed applying deck Stain for Hardwoods on my deck porch. I have used many stains over my years, this is by far the best stain I've ever used. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a superior stain.
This is a great stain. It's very easy to use, easy to prep for, easy to clean up after. From a review of others' experience, it's important to follow the recommendations of the manufacturer, but I'd never go back to using other, more commercially available stains. FYI, the ordering/shipping part of this process was perfect!
Used this on a deck made of Canberra. The 10 year old deck previously was stained 2 years ago with Penofin and has since faded dramatically and the traffic areas were pretty bare. High altitude and direct sunlight may have helped too. We pressure washed and stripped the deck to get rid of the graying. The Defy went on very well, soaked in great and looks wonderful. After 1 month the deck still looks great as the day we did it. Very happy with the results thus far. Stain was shipped quickly and very well packed.
During our home renovation I found two cedar posts in the attic. The builder suggested staining white, but thankfully I tried DEFY cedar stain. I have worked with stains found at local stores and wanted something richer and more durable. Well, I got it. The stain was easy to apply, soaked in quickly, and now compliments the front door beautifully. Even an experienced painter was impressed.
