The fence that is around your property can and does add to the beauty of your landscaping or it can be a complete eyesore that takes away from all of your other hard work. You know the old saying, “Good fences make good neighbors” but they can also protect your children, pets, and property. Knowing this, people still tend to neglect fences. If you do not properly care for the fence it will quickly become an eyesore and then bad neighbors will follow. It is important to protect a fence from both water and UV damage.
You can extend the life of your fence when you stain and seal it which will keep it looking great for years to come. We chose our fence stains carefully and we use only quality penetrating oil stains that add a wonderful depth of color. These fence stains utilize both drying and non-drying oils in the product. Nothing is more important than the use of a pigmented stain instead of a clear sealer. The pigments work to protect your wood from the harmful damage of the UV rays from the sun. If you decide that you want the natural look and want to use a clear sealer, you will be disappointed quickly when the wood turns gray from the UV damage.
When it comes to wood restoration, preparation is the key to success. The most important aspect, even more, important than the application of the stain, is properly cleaning and preparing the surface to accept the stain. Many pressure washing companies do not have the knowledge required to effectively stain and seal a fence to obtain the longest product life available. Because the cost of wood is always on the rise, we do not cut corners when it comes to protecting your investment.
