WHY do I have to seal my cedar deck?
OK, I've always thought the reason you spend more money on cedar is because it's rot resistant. Also, I prefer the look of cedar after it has weathered to a soft gray. But now that my husband and I built a new house and have 3 cedar decks, I want to make sure I protect our investment! So, please explain why it should be sealed. If I do need to seal, is there a product that is truly clear? I don't like the look of the dark stains that I always see. Sorry if this is all stuff you've covered a million times...
