Messmers Hardwood Decking Stain

Messmers UV Plus for Hardwoods Stain ReviewMessmers UV Plus for Hardwoods was developed to penetrate and protect exotic hardwoods. This stain will help preserve and protect hardwoods from UV fading and water absorption. The two colors available will restore the wood’s natural color tones.

Messmers UV Plus for Hardwoods was the first stain specifically designed for difficult to penetrate exotic woods.

Important Note: Testing for Exotic Hardwood Deck Stains

Exotic hardwoods such as IPE are extremely dense and difficult to penetrate. These wood types when stained, will always fade faster the other woods such as Cedar, Redwood, and Pine. Testing will be changed to 1 year instead of 2 years for exotic hardwoods.

Messmers UV Plus for Hardwoods Stain Scores (1-10)

Appearance After Initial Stain Application: 9

– The Red Mahogany color was used for the IPE test deck. We choose this color since the manufacturer said it would last a little longer than the Natural tint. The stained appearance when dry was a beautiful color of reddish brown tones throughout our IPE.

Preventing UV Graying at 1 Year Mark: 7

– As mentioned previously we only test exotic hardwoods for 1 year. Messmers retained 70% of its original color after one year in the full sun areas and close to 80% in the shaded areas. Overall good results for an IPE deck.

Wear/Tear and Peeling: 9

– The Messmers Hardwood stain exhibited little to no peeling on the wood. The stain faded evenly without any wear patterns.
