Fence Staining In The Sacramento Area

Fence Staining In The Sacramento Area

Just like anything else, a brand new fence is a stunning upgrade! The look of the fresh wood can add some serious curb appeal to any home. The trouble is keeping your fence looking brand new as it gets exposed to sunlight, rain, and other environmental factors.

There are several options to consider when staining a new fence:

1. Let the fence dry - new lumber is still damp. In order for your stain to penetrate, we need to let new fences dry for several weeks prior to staining. 

2. Clean the fence - most new fences will not require more than a rinse with a power washer. But if your fence has already accumulated dust and dirt, we can kick up the pressure or add a cleaning agent during our washing.

3. Apply the stain with a brush and roller - some situations may call for spraying, but the vast majority of projects will be done by hand.

Another question to consider is: how deep do you want the color in the stain? While the look of a bright, unfinished fence is very appealing, the more pigment (color) added to the stain will enhance the protection. 

Stains can range from transparent to solid, with several options in between. Regardless of the stain, it will need to be maintained every 3-5 years to keep up the color and protection.
