How to select the right Wood Defender™ product for your project:
All Wood Defender Exterior Oil Based Stains are formulated to protect and seal the wood from the elements. They penetrate the surface to prevent mold and mildew growth, shield from harmful UV rays, and waterproof the wood. They result in a uniform application with no back-brushing or rolling required on vertical surfaces.
The Wood Defender Transparent Fence Stain is formulated to highlight the wood’s grain and other positive characteristics. It is often used on new cedar or redwood fences that have a lot of natural beauty to amplify, as well as for pre-stain facilities that choose to stain outdoor building materials prior to install. Our transparent fence stain carries a two-year warranty and often lasts up to four years, depending on the application rate.
The Wood Defender Semi-Transparent Fence Stain is our best-selling product, earning it “The Contractor’s Choice” stamp of approval. The stain is formulated to excel on aged structures that have to be cleaned prior to application, but it also performs well on new wood surfaces. It has a unique pigment combination that provides unparalleled UV protection and better coverage overall. Our semi-transparent fence stain is backed by a three-year warranty and often lasts up to six years, depending on the application rate.
The Wood Defender 200 Series Wood Stain & Seal is formulated to repel water and resist the impact of UV light, and contains anti-mildew and anti-fungal additives that prevent graying during the life of the stain. It also cures faster than other fence stains, making it the recommended product for decks or any surface that will be walked on or tracked. The 200 Series Wood Stain & Seal is often used by contractors and homeowners looking for one product to use in multiple outdoor applications.
