I finished the underside of my porch roof and a dormer-style entryway with pine planks. I like the look of the raw wood, and I would like to finish it with a product that leaves it looking natural; but new, not weathered. The wood is completely under cover and receives less than an hour late evening, tree-filtered sun. I am hoping that I can just use a clear spar urethane, but I'm not sure about the maintenance and longevity. I have little knowledge on the subject and any advice will be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Actually a marine grade spar would be better however out of the direct sun I'm not sure its worth the expense. You can extend the life of the finish by putting a fresh coat of spar on it every other year.

Hi "sgtbridges23", Spar Urethane is a very protective clear coat finish. We can use this on the interior and exterior surfaces of the wood. It prevents the wood from sunlight, water and the changes in the temperature. You can protect your wood doors by using this Spar urethane.
