Cedar Fence Sealant

Asked June 6, 2015, 1:18 PM EDT

Do you know if there are any products that can be applied to a cedar fence to significantly extend the life of the wood? There's conflicting info out there as to whether such products are just for looks or if they actually help preserve the wood. Seems like cedar is already pretty good at weathering well outdoors if it is kept clean and it is not touching the ground.
