One Time® Wood Stain is a 100% solid stain that can be used on all types of unfinished exterior wood. One Time® Wood Deck Stain is a proprietary acrylate resin blend that protects by penetrating into the wood cells and cross-linking into the wood. One Time® contains no solvent or water to evaporate and cures in the full UV rays of the sun.
The manufacturer claims a 7 Year Warranty on UV Fading, Water Damage, and Natural Weathering.
One Time® Wood Stain Scores (1-10)
Appearance After Initial Stain Application: 5
– One Time Wood Stain had a decent look to the finished wood. Very rich in color. We did not appreciate the drying problems that the One Time displayed. This caused a slick/sticky appearance.
Preventing UV Graying at 2 Year Mark: 6
– One Time® faded considerably in the full sun areas. About 40% of the original color had remained. The shaded part of the deck still had stain left but unfortunately had darkened considerably.
Wear/Tear and Peeling: 9
– One Time® Stain showed little to no peeling or wearing. This is the only claim by the manufacturer that actually lived up to its warranty.
