Retain current stage of cedar finish


One month old cedar structures in our backyard have already begun changing color. Wifey just decided she wants theses structures to retain their current look. Is there a sealant that will lock-in the color permanently while protecting the cedar. If so, what type and brand should we have the painter use. We are in the Dallas / Ft. Worth Texas market.

Thanks in advance.

The product hasn't been invented that will stop mother nature from doing her thing,tell her to just accept the gray color.

So you are saying the wood will continue to turn gray unless a transparent, semi-transparent or solid stain is applied?

The gravy sucking pig first quoting painter came and looked everything over this morning and told me otherwise. Since this involves me peeving off my wife I really gotta get my facts straight.

I'm saying that there is nothing i know of that will block UV rays,and that's what turns the cedar gray,and if your painter tells you different,ask him for proof,like show you a job he's done thats a year old,and is still red.

I thought flood made a clear stain product for that. Cwf-uv? I've not used it and I think most top coats like that mention you shouldn't use it on new wood, so mileage may vary.
