Yellow Cedar deck finish ?
Im having a deck installed and the contractor applied a clear Sikkens finish on all 4 sides of new knotty yellow cedar boards last fall, nov 2010. About 20 of the finished boards were left out over the winter and all them darkened to a moldy yellow-gray. Several of the boards that were left outside are also splitting and checking badly. A store rep came out and said it might have been mill glaze or an over application of the product. Any other ideas here ? thanks !
Id post pics but they are all covered as we buttoned up for the hurricane!
