What product to finish walls of screen/sun room

joyce_6333April 24, 2014

We are converting our deck to a screen room with Eze-Breeze windows. The interior walls and ceiling will be cedar, and the contractor says we should finish both surfaces as if they were exterior. He brought over a sample of the cedar board with 2 coats of finish, and I really dislike it. It's way too yellow and way too shiny.

Can someone suggest a product to finish the cedar that won't yellow and isn't shiny. I initially thought we would just keep the cedar natural with clear finish, but staining it would be ok too.

Thanks for the help.

I didn't think cedar needed anything.

You could always just put a clear water sealant on it.
