One TIME Wood Protector Cambara Decking One TIME Wood Protector   10 Months LaterOne TIME Wood Protector

Last summer I tested a product called One TIME Wood Protector on our Cambara Decking. In the past we’ve had horrible luck finding a product that could seal our beautiful deck and stand up to the harsh New England weather (extreme cold winters and searing hot sun in the summer). However, I’m happy to report that it looks like we’ve found a winner!! One TIME Wood Protector appears to be working better than any other deck sealer that we’ve tried in the past on Cambara.

Cambara Decking Stained with One Time Sealer One TIME Wood Protector   10 Months LaterAfter 10 months (summer and full winter) the deck looks just like the day I sealed it. When I wrote the One TIME Wood Protector Review I said the true test will be after several winters. Well we had a pretty tough winter around here and the deck still looks new (something none of the other products we’ve used has been able to do!!).

One TIME is Different

If you’re not familiar with One TIME Wood Protector then it’s worth pointing out how it’s different compared to other deck sealers.

  • Protects wood for at least seven years from sun, water and other elements (seven year limited warranty).  This eliminates the need to reapply wood sealer every one to two years as is necessary with conventional products.
  • The product is 100 percent solids and contains no solvents, silicones, oils, water, waxes or VOCs.
  • Penetrates into wood to become part of the wood’s cellular structure, protecting it from water and sunlight.  One TIME does not evaporate or wash away like other products that only coat the surface of wood.
  • Covers up to two times the square footage per gallon than conventional wood treatments, resulting in the need to purchase less product.

The verdict is still out but so far this product is showing promise. I’ll report back again after the summer sun beats on the deck some more.

  1. Wow! That looks amazing. I know a lot of people who used another deck stain that was supposed to be one of the best, and now one year later it’s faded and spotty. I’ll make sure to hunt this product down when I seal my decks this summer!

    We’ve been looking at Restore and Deckover. They both worry me. This looks like the best product so far. How has it held up over the past three years?
