We live in southern Ontario and soon We will be building a back porch. The main frame will be exposed and constructed of 8"x 8" rough cut Southern Ontario cedar. My question is should I stain it or not and why.


It is strictly up to you. If you stain you will have to keep up on the maintenance probably every other year being so exposed. Either way apply a good coat of Shell Guard borate. Call 800-564-2987 for help and materials.
