I’m building a fence with 1×6x6 cedar pickets attached to PTframing

Everywhere I read it is “no maintenance”

So is it a bonus if I seal it ? Will I get the “wet” look to stay with it ?

What’s everyones experience/opinions??

The usual marketing garbage. Same goes for “maintenance-free batteries” and “self-cleaning ovens”.

Yep…it might/probably will do the twist & warp after being exposed to the elements for a season or two. May crack a bit, and will definately take on that “weathered” look.
