Question:


I have 13 freshly cut and de-barked 6" X 9' cedar post that are going to be used as porch roof supports. What do I use or what needs to be done to the post to maintain color and preserve?

Answer:

You are never going to maintain the original color. UV will change it as will the weather. You should apply a borate treatment to them and then a latex stain to your color choice. You should not use just a clear; it needs to have some pigment in it to work.
