Is There A Decent Water Based Transparant Finish For Exterior Wood Yet?


I have some T&G pine and fir beams to finish on the underside of a covered patio, plus fir posts. Is there anything water based I could spray?

Why not oil base? They've figured out pigmented top coats for latex, but imho primers and clears are best in an oil base.

Water or oil based there isn't a good transparent finish. They'll all need frequent coating maintenance if they see sun and water.

Well it's the underside, so some UV but no direct sun or water. I want to spray it and I don't like spraying oil.

Looks like they sell it at Miller Paint, my new favorite paint store. Good paint, no sales, straight forward pricing.

Just don't use Miller Paint if you think it is going to rain overnight. Only paint I ever had that washed off the walls after skinning over for at least four hours. Once it's on, it's great. The thing that makes it great, makes it hate rain.
