    Is it a good choice for a southern exposure porch in TN? I am not fond of Trex as it fades, stains and warps. IPE seems a bit too red and I wonder how long it takes to gray.
    Is cedar left unstained? Will it last?
    Thanks for any guidance!

    Cedar is rot and insect resistant....America was built with cedar; north and south since the colonies....
    I like opaque stain for exterior looks like paint but lets the wood breath .... Paint encapsulates the wood and gets pushed off by the water trying to evaporate......

    Hello ..Thank you for your question. The 'rods' are structural tie rods for the roof assembly. They resist the horizontal vector forces that can cause the roof to spread. Hope that helps. Eric

    Hey there Eric... could you tell me where you might go to get these rods made, you where to buy? I assume they must be made custom to the space. I also think they add a wonderful kind of "architectural intimacy". Structural or no, I highly approve, and hope you can shed some light on how I might track some down. Thanks so much
