The Advantages of Fence Painting and Staining
Appearances aren’t the only reason you should look into applying a new coat of paint or a stain to your fence. A finish is a way to protect wood against rain, snow, and other elements. Water and even sunlight can cause certain kinds of wood to discolor. In some cases, it can also cause fences to deteriorate more quickly.
Water can cause would to warp, crack, and twist. The combination of sunlight and moisture can cause wood to rot. Because of this, it’s essential to place a barrier between your fence and the elements. This is something a finish can provide.
You’ll be able to decide between two choices when applying a finish to your fence. Staining is one solution, and painting is another option. If your primary focus is to protect the wood, you’ll want to apply paint. It can last for as long as 10 years and can provide protection against both sunlight and moisture.
If you’ve like to showcase the wood’s natural grain, staining is the clear choice. It soaks into the wood, covering gaps that moisture would normally rest in. Because of this, it provides some protection from moisture, but not as much as paint does. It provides very little protection from the sun, and because of that, it’s likely you’ll need to restain your fence regularly. Ideally, fences should be restained approximately every 3 or 4 years. It’s possible to go as long as 10 years before it is necessary to repaint a fence.

There’s more to fence painting than placing a new coat over the current fencing. In order to create a clean looking finish that will really last, some work will be done. In order to get the fence clean, it will need a power washing. Drop sheets will need to be placed around the fence so that the ground below is protected.
The process of painting a fence can vary based on several different factors. If a wood fence is being painted, it will need to be scraped and sanded before the painting process can begin. Primer will also need to be applied. Before a metal fence is painted, it should be cleaned with a wire brush. After that, either a rust-preventing or oxide primer should be applied. A different type of primer will be used for wood fencing.
Stain is typically applied to wood fencing using a brush. A range of techniques can be used to apply paint, including rolling, brushing, and spraying. The method used will vary based on several factors, such as the environment and the condition of the substrate. Once the paint is fully applied, the cleanup process will begin. Paint chips and other types of debris should be cleared away during this time. That way, the area surrounding a new fence will look as better than ever.
