Say Good Bye To Oil-Base

Say Good Bye To Oil-Base

After using oil-based stains on our +40 year old redwood deck for several years with poor results, typically only seeing about six months of protection, I decided to try something different this time and after much research ordered water-based DEFY Extreme. Once the deck was power washed, sanded, and brightened the DEFY was brushed on using the two-coat, wet on wet method described on the can. Because it happened to be a hot sunny day I installed a large tarp above to shade the area and found the product fairly easy to apply, it’s water thin and really penetrates the wood.

Rain water beads up like no other product I’ve seen, time will tell if it outlast the other products I’ve used but so far I’ve been impressed.
