I live in Las Vegas and the sun can destroy anything. I have some faux bamboo under the patio and some in more direct sunlight. The protected bamboo can go a couple of years while the direct sun could use a touch up every year. I put several coats on my PVC when I originally make it. I start with a primer, then 2-3 coats of paint followed by a coat of amber shellac. When I 'touched up' the bamboo last year, I just put on a coat of amber shellac and it looked great.
