Fence stain – A well-constructed fence can add beauty and safety to your property. If there is a wooden fence, dyeing can improve their visual appeal and increase its longevity. Stain penetrates wood and protects not only on the surface but also the underlying fibers. There are two basic stains and three tried-and-true methods of application. The wood fence is made of is likely to dictate your coloring options.
If you have constructed a shade fences or privacy fences with rough sawn timber, apply the stain with a spray gun is your best choice. Brushes and rollers will get stuck in the raised grain. When does the stain with a syringe, do it on a windless day when it is hot. If the temperature is above the manufacturer’s recommendations, apply stain on the shady side of the fence stain. If your fence is planked with cedar or pine, makes a clear stain the beauty of the wood to show through. If the fence was planked with hemlock, maybe a semi-transparent or solid color stain can link fence stain color to the other visual elements of your property.
If your fence stain was planked or demonstrated with untreated finished timber, which means all four surfaces planed smooth and then kiln dried, your coloring options and application method increases dramatically. You can use either oil-based or water-based stains with a brush, roller or spray. For ease of cleaning, water-based stains are better suited for rolls or syringes, but you can brush them too. For oily stains, a brush is easiest to clean. If you intend to roll apply oil-based stain to a large fence stain, throw the roll at the completion of the job can be less expensive than thinner is needed to clean it.
