Cedar Wood Frequent Questions & Answers
What type of finish is more durable than linseed oil but still retain a natural appearance?
Our linseed oil is the most natural form of finishes you can apply to cedar wood, but it will only retain the look for about a year or two.
The transparent and semi-transparent stains may last from three to four years. These finishes contain pigments which protect the wood from the degrading effects of solar radiation.
The best products contain water repellents, mildew-cides and ultraviolet light blockers or absorbers. When selecting a pigmented stain, CRA recommends testing finishes on a small area to be sure the desired color effect is achieved. Transparent stains contain less pigment than semi-transparent stains and provide a more natural look. These finishes can be used on decks, fences, siding or other exterior projects.
