Default Cedar posts finish

Hey guys my friends house has cedar posts as porch support. They are dull and need a coating to improve the look and protect. I don't want to use stain and change the color just revive and protect. What is the best product to use? Thanks

Iíve always used ready seal on my cedar. This is pecan on my patio but i believe they also have a natural. This is the only stain i use for my cedar projects. Itís fool-proof.

This is what I use on my log home as well as my cedar posts on the front porch. It's good stuff! Good Luck!

I appreciate the input guys. The posts on the front porch and look greyish and faded. I was planning on power wash the porch and post. The putting a sealer on them. I want to bring out the natural color or add a little color but mostly to protect. I see some people just use a polyeruthane?

Bleach in a pump up sprayer spray everything down then pressure wash. Let dry then use CWF

It will help with any mold/mildew/staining and make the pressure washing go much quicker
