My favorite deck stain for a porch ceiling?

Best Deck stain for Porch CeilingMy best deck stain for a porch ceiling is the same semi-penetrating deck stain you choose for the rest of the wood in the covered porch. Semi-transparent deck stains soak into the wood to offer a level of protection. TWP, Restore-A-Deck, and Armstrong Clark are the best semi-transparent deck stains for porch ceilings.

Do I need to stain a porch ceiling?

Even though the ceiling does not get sun damage like a deck or fence, the ceiling can still benefit from the protection against moisture that the semi-transparent deck stain provides. Staining the porch ceiling simultaneously with the rest of the deck makes it easy to match the wood throughout.

What wood species? I have yellow pine t&g on my ceiling and I doubt it would look as nice as this!
