Covered Untreated wood porch


I am having a gable roof added to my Ranch Style house. My house is red brick with black shutters. The contractor said it would be best to use untreated wood and paint it. It is going to have Tongue and Groove roof open framed with slanted wooden columns going into stone or stucco undecided with this as well. I would like some input on color ideas? We wood like a rustic/country look. Can it be stained and poly? Other products I should look at?

There's nothing county looking on the rest of the house, why miss match it?
Everything else on the house is mantaince free, I'm not getting the painting it deal.
I would have used vinyl post wraps and PVC coil stock to cover up the fascia and vinly bead board on the ceiling at least.
Your going to have to wait about 6 months for those post to dry out enough to do any type of coating on them.
Outside wood does not get poly unless you want a whole lot more mantaince.
If I had to coat it I'd be using solid stain not paint. It will fade but should not peel in the future.

I just posted this a couple posts down but I will repeat it. Let me start by saying I haver never used this product. If you let the wood dry out for the 3 or 4 months It will already be checking, cracking and twisting. From what I have read, some on other forums where it was used, it's getting pretty good write-ups. The product is TWP either 100 or 1000 it can be put on wet PT and stops the checks, cracks, and twisting and still let the wood dry. Maybe do some research.

That's fine Joe, I would rather be corrected than put out bad info. Let me check maybe I have the wrong product.

If it sounds to good to be true, guess what?
Sealing the end with wax may slow down some of the defects.

Found the other link it is on our sister forum contractor talk under painting. One deck contractor on there swears by TWP 100 another suggests Cabots. Having said that there is a trade off. By applying these products after the PT has had only a few days to dry will pretty much stop the checks splits and warping. The trade off is it will need to be re-done a lot sooner.
Sorry for any confusion this has caused.

The only one that is pressure treated is the 4 by 4 which I am covering up. Are you suggesting this stain for the other wood that is not read it

I guess I'm confused, happened once before 1979 I think. I thought you were asking about stain.
