Many Dallas homeowners turn to staining and sealing contractors to protect their wooden fences from damage caused by moisture, sunlight, and mildew. Staining and sealing will not only lengthen the life and increase the durability of the fence but also help boost a home’s curb appeal.
A fence with no sealant or coating is more vulnerable to problems such as cracking, fading, and warping—this is why protecting the fence with the proper staining and sealing procedure is so important. The fence must first be cleaned of any debris, including dirt, mold, or mildew. Older fences that have been previously stained or sealed will need to be scraped to remove the older coating. After a thorough cleaning, the fence is evenly coated with the stain/sealant product.
Fence staining and sealing is usually done during dry seasons, as rain can wash away the coating, and moisture will keep the product from adhering to the wood. Homeowners looking to protect their fences should contact a Best Pick contractor, who will know exactly which sealant or staining product works best with their fence and who can apply the stain/sealant as evenly as possible.
