Of the thousands of decks built on an annual basis, the vast majority go unprotected against the environment. Due to the difficulty associated with applying competitor’s deck stains, consumers unfortunately watch their investment gray over time and ultimately deteriorate. This problem has been solved with the Wood Defender line of stains. With the ease of application, cleanup, maintenance and longevity Wood Defender Deck Stain has become the contractor’s choice for deck care!

Wood Defender Deck Stains are designed specifically for application on decks. Most competitors’ products are universal, being used for both fences and decks. A universal product commonly lacks specific criteria for its intended purpose.

Wood Defender stains help to beautify outdoor decks, playground equipment, and contact type structures. The unique formula highlights and reveals all of the existing wood grain. The formula works to seal out the harsh effects of the environment. The average life of Wood Defender stains on a properly treated project is 2-3 years.

Easy Application

Wood Defender Deck Stains are designed for easy application. When the surface is completely saturated the deck stain will soak into an even appearance. Some back brushing or rolling may be necessary on horizontal surfaces where boards are severely cupped. When applied at the recommended rate, lap marks and runs are rarely visible. The product is easily cleaned up within the first few hours of application.

Easy Re-coats

Wood Defender stains allow for tremendously easy recoats. Due to the penetrating nature of the product, there will be an absence of a "film" formed across the surface of the wood. This characteristic eliminates the need for caustic strippers or high pressure power washing before a re-coat.

Deck Maintenance Programs

By providing a product that is easy to apply and re-coat, Wood Defender applicators have the opportunity to establish a "Deck Maintenance" program with their clientele. Our customers consistently sell a "Deck Maintenance" program with return visits expected two years form each application date. When re-applying Wood Defender stains, prep work should consist only of a light pressure wash to remove dirt and other contaminants. Its possible deck bleach may be needed to remove any mildew and to bring the deck back to a neutral color prior to the application of the Wood Defender Deck Stains.
