Being a career firefighter, I’m fortunate to have extra time to pursue my dreams of owning my own business. I started Firehouse Fence and Deck Stain 7 years ago. I enjoy interacting with customers and educating them on the importance and benefits of protecting, staining, and in some cases, revitalizing old wood.
It’s important to protect your investment with quality products. I use Wood Defender Stain and Seal Commercial Grade products on residential and commercial applications. With the proper application, you will experience long lasting results. Here are some of the benefits of using Wood Defender products.
First, Wood Defender oil-based products are 100% penetrating. You might ask yourself why it matters if it’s a penetrating product or not? Penetrating products will not cause the wood to crack, peel or blister because it does not clog the pores of the wood, which in turn, promotes healthy wood. Wood pores are essentially how wood breathes, and as we all know, breathing is the key to longevity. Other products that are water-based clog the pores of the wood which will cause the wood to crack, peel or blister. When time comes for a maintenance coat to be applied on a Wood Defender product, it is applied directly on top of the original coat, with minimal prep work needed. If a water-based product was previously used on the wood and it needs a maintenance coat, the prior product will need to be either removed by power washing or sanding which can damage the wood. (Both of these options are also very costly, as well as time consuming.)
Second, Wood Defender products do not contain insecticides. A benefit of the Wood Defender oils is that it does deter insects from occupying the wood which promotes longevity of your investment.
Lastly, Wood Defender products also provide mold and mildew inhibitors as well as providing UV protection in the transparent, semitransparent, and series 200 stain products.
Staining with Wood Defender products extends the life of your outdoor projects, adds curb appeal and adds value to your property.
