Staining Clear Cedar 1x4 T&G
We will be installing clear cedar strips on our patio ceilings and soffits and have heard that it is not wise to stain for the first year because it will just flake off until the cedar is "weathered". Is there any truth to this? I'm concerned about leaving it untreated so it doesn't turn grey in our climate. As well, does anyone know of a stain I would be able to use that could closely match natural walnut?
