    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 wood...it looks like paint but lets the wood breath .... Paint encapsulates the wood and gets pushed off by the water trying to evaporate......

Interesting ceiling detail, follows the roof pitch.
