Staining enhances as well as protects your fence. Also, when to paint depending on the weather is an important factor. Finally, you must pick the right stain. If the fence gets 10 hours of direct sunlight, or if it is mostly in a shaded area, you want to make sure you have the correct type of coverage.

It’s important to make sure your fence has the proper coating or it will quickly turn gray and could crack, warp, or split. You must also know what type of wood your fence is made out of (spruce, cedar, or pine are most common), and each requires a unique form of stain, prep work, and technique. This is why Florida Fence should be consulted before moving forward. Florida Fence will help you determine the best course of action to take, which will save you money and time.
Please keep in mind that after staining a coat of sealer or wood preservative should be applied for additional protection (mask, goggles, and gloves to protect against fumes and spills will need to be worn). Once again, it’s an arduous job involving detailed work (you must get between each plank and in every nook), so there’s no shame in avoiding the “heavy lifting” by calling on Florida Fence and letting the professionals do it.
A stained fence is a beautiful all natural look that many homeowners find desirable. Staining your fence is a lot of work, it needs to be cleaned, sanded and holes need to be filled. You need to check for any signs of rot and know how to replace or fill in the damaged wood before you can begin.
