Fence Staining and Painting
If you have a fence on your property, it is definitely an extension of your home. Depending on if the fence is in the front, or back yards, your fence also might be the first impression that your home makes on someone. For this reason, it is always important to keep your fence up, and looking good, as best you can. While we are not fence builders, we can do some basic repairs; including making sure that your fence is properly painted, stained and sealed, in order to keep it looking as new as possible.
If you already have a fence installed on your property, and it has been stained, or painted in the past, the first step is to strip that paint, or stain, off. We never want to simply paint, or stain, on top of other paint, or stain, because the newer layer will start to peel and crack. Instead, we strip off the existing paint, or stain, layer and open up the fence to the porous surface of the wood. This porous surface is much easier for the paint and stain to absorb into, which will make them stick to the fence, without lifting off.
One of the two, main options, to make your fence look beautiful, is that of staining. Staining can be done in one, of two, ways: either with a clear stain, that enhance the natural color of the wood that your fence is made out of, or with a colored stain, that will alter the color of that wood. If you like the way that your fence looks, after it is stripped down, a clear stain is right for you. If you aren’t too fond of the color, we can use a colored stain to enhance the color, but the keep the natural feel of the wood.
Besides staining your fence, the other option is to just paint your fence. If you have a wood fence, and don’t like the way that the natural wood looks, painting is a great option for you. Likewise, if your fence is made out of any other material, such as vinyl or metal, staining is not an option for you. These materials will need to be painted, in order to change their appearance. If you have a fence now, or are planning on having one built, we would love to help you paint it up.
After your fence is painted, or stained, the last step is to make sure that it is sealed properly. This step is the step that will make sure that your fence is protected from anything that is thrown its way. And, because we have showers, harsh winters, and incredibly hot summers in Pasco, this step is definitely one you should take. Having a sealant coat put on your fence, will give a very thin layer to your fence, that protects it, and keeps the paint and stain looking new, for as long as possible.
