One-Coat Deck Finish

Colors | Samples | Product Info | FAQs

Deck Defense is the best wood stain for your decks, rails and fences. It has been engineered for better performance, longer life, and easier application. Although it is a totally waterborne product, Deck Defense has penetrating properties like oil finishes, but unlike oil-based products, it hardens into a lattice-like coating, supporting and strengthening the natural wood fibers from the inside out.

Customers can feel secure in the knowledge that their investment is protected from the natural damaging effects of sun, wind, and water. Deck Defense is easy to apply and maintain, and is ideal for coating decks, fences, railings and other horizontal surfaces. Our new deck stain is available in seven colors to complement our exterior wall finishes. 

Deck Defense can be applied over older Deck Defense-stained decking provided proper application and surface preparation.
