Our Fence Staining Services
Selecting a stain with the right color and look is difficult. Should you use semi-transparent or solid stain? Nowadays, many homeowners have more color options other than shades of brown and black. Manufacturers can add pigment to stains now, which can give your fence that “painted” look.
Since we’ve been in this business so long, you can trust us to help you find a stain that’s correct for your type of wood and will give you the look you want. Looking for a different color? We’ll help you find the perfect match!
Our experts will begin by prepping the wood fence for stain. For existing fences this means power washing the fence and replacing damaged boards or posts and broken gate hardware. Next, we’ll prep the area by covering landscapes and hardscapes to protect them from stain splatter and overspray.
Paint vs. Stain for Wood Fencing
Mr. Handyman recommends using stain to finish wood fences. Unlike paint, stain penetrates the wood and provides superior water and rot resistance. As the years go by, stain won’t flake or peel away; usually the color will fade, which indicates it’s time for a fresh coat. The best part? Applying a fresh coat of stain is easier since there’s not as much prep work involved and no peeling paint to sand or scape away.
