Clear coat the shed?

Hi all, I recently powerwashed my shed. Should I clear coat it or leave it be?

If you are not painting it, it needs a wood preservative / protector.

Thompsons is at the bottom of most lists. If you haven't already bought it, go for one that lasts longer.

There really aren't any great clear sealers. Go to a paint store [not dept] and see what they have to choose from. A semi-transparent will last longer than a clear.

Correct, because they contain oxide particles in the coloring that reflect UV rays.
