Must cedar be strained?
I just had a pergola built. The frame is treated wood and the top is cedar to prevent the 2x2 from the warping tat you get with treated wood. I will be staining the treated wood white in about 3 months. Looking at it the cedar would look just as good staying it's natural color. Will I have to stain it with a clear or will it maintain it's color? Thanks, Alyx
