I am completing a sunroom addition, fully enclosed and heated with lots of windows. I installed tongue and groove cedar for the interior walls for it's durability, but am wondering if I should be concerned about UV damage. The windows are good quality low E glass. What's the best way to keep cedar looking good in this situation? polyurathane? or something else? or no finish?

Low-E glass will block a fairly high percentage of the UV rays, but not all. Might consider sealing the cedar with a clear, UV blocking, exterior grade, polyurethane sealer. Find it in the paint section of any big box store or any paint store.
