Product Description

One TIME® Wood Protector is a unique exterior wood protection formula that uses a proprietary resin blend to provide long-term protection from water, fungal attachment, and UV radiation.

Unlike conventional exterior wood treatments, there is no solvent or water to evaporate. One TIME® is 100% solids in liquid form. One TIME® penetrates deep into the wood's cellular structure and cures in the wood with natural sunlight.

One TIME provides superior protection for outdoor wood against moisture intrusion and fungal attachment. More Details.

One TIME® can be used on virtually any exterior wood: One TIME protects New or old wood, Pressured treated or Natural wood, Cedar, Pine, or any other wood type.

It is suitable for any exterior wood application: decks, docks, log homes, siding, outdoor furniture, fences, bleachers, shake roofs, boardwalks, outdoor furniture, etc.

Wood will be well protected from moisture intrusion and fungal attachment for several years. Color can be rejuvenated periodically as desired. Color rejuvenation could be desired at 4-5 years in severe exposure, but wood is protected from moisture and fungal damage even after color begins to fade.

To rejuvenate color, simply clean dirt from the wood and re-apply One TIME®. No stripping or harsh chemicals are needed.

Scars and knots are extremely dense. One TIME® colors may not penetrate as deeply in these areas.

One TIME® blends beautifully during application, touchup, or rejuvenation. One TIME® is easy to apply free from drip marks, overlaps, and brushmarks.


New Wood 300-350 square feet
Old Wood 250-300 square feet

"NEW CEDAR AND REDWOOD decking needs to be naturally weathered a few months before applying One TIME®.  Choose Red Cedar or Clove Brown for the best performance on any cedar and redwood."

Important: One TIME is for bare wood only. Other wood protection products must be completely removed before applying One TIME®. Some water-based stains are difficult to strip, and may require additional measures to remove.

If One TIME Wood Protector is unable to soak into prepared wood, please consider a different product.
