One of the best things to do to maintain your fence is to stain and paint it.

Staining a fence can provide more protection to the fence than paint because it seeps farther into the wood than paint. The stain on a fence also doesn’t chip like paint can, revealing areas that need to be repainted.

When painting or staining a fence it’s recommended that it be done in good weather when the humidity is low and the temperature falls in the range listed on the paint or stain cans.

When applying the paint or stain, make sure to use an even stroke and apply an even amount of paint or stain throughout to give it an even look.
