Where you do live? At our altitude and dryness, that 7 years would likely be 2. We usually seal yearly. I like Penofin for deck and fencing. That's what I'm putting on my new decks here. I just plan on resealing yearly.mike3554 said:Has anyone ever used a stain called One Time it is kind of expensive but supose to be really good and last at least 7 years. Just looking for some info from somebody that has used it before i spend a lot of money on something that turns out to be no good.
Any pics?Dora said:I have just stained my deck with one time. Was it pricey? Yep, but if I get5+ years out of it I have saved money. I stained everything I had outside that was wood with the leftover product. Apply it when it is cooler outside as the sun makes the product cure and it becomes thick and doesn't go as far. I guess the test will be how it looks next spring. Right now, it looks great and I'm glad I spent the time and money on it.
Same here...composites are 4x or more the cost of redwood. When I did the math, the deck material alone, not including structural was like $9000 (2 decks though). I just couldn't justify it.mike3554 said:One time is expensive but not nearly as expensive as Trex. If i could afford a 48x40 deck out of Trex i would have just built an in ground pool.
